Vertex Standard radios changing to new UNI battery

Vertex Standard announced an important change to its line of handheld portable business two way radios for greater compatibility with the introduction of UNI batteries and a universal UNI charger.

Previously, each series of Vertex handheld portables required its own battery charger that was not compatible with another series of Vertex Standard radios. With the introduction of the UNI packages, one charger can be used across the entire line. Of course, a universal charger needs to be able to accommodate the different batteries used within each series. To accomplish this, Vertex Standard created an entire new line of batteries for each series, all re-designed to fit the new charger. These new batteries and charger will replace the batteries previously packaged with the radios, as the former will not be compatible with the new charger. Likewise, the new batteries will not be compatible with the charger previously included with the radios.

The advantages of having one universally compatible charger for all Vertex Standard radios are obvious. A mixed fleet of VX-231 and VX-351 radios will not require different single unit chargers for each series and one universal multi-charger can charge radios from a mix of series at once.

Notes:
All Vertex Standard portable radios will eventually be transitioned to the universal charger. The VX-231, 351, and 354 are the first to be transitioned to the UNI packages and are now in stock at Buy Two Way Radios.

    Hi, the change over occurred three years ago and this article is dated March 2014. Many of the radios affected by this change have since been discontinued and are no longer available from the manufacturer. If your batteries and chargers are only six months old they should be current UNI models. If not, you may want to contact your dealer for assistance.
    If all your multi chargers and batteries are old versions, they should still work fine with one another and with the radios. The only thing to keep in mind is if your batteries wear out and you need to replace them in the future, you will also need the UNI charger as the replacement UNI batteries are not compatible with the old chargers. Most companies upgrade by attrition, meaning that as their batteries wear out through the years, they begin to replace them one by one as needed. The article is still active to remind everyone with both old and new batteries in their fleets of the design change.
