Battery Holders for Simplex Hotspots

Awhile back we mentioned battery holders for our hotspots on the website. Several customers have inquired about them over the past few months. We have decided to make them available on request when you order a DMRspot. We are not going to make them available individually because we like to make sure they fit well with the hotspot it is to be used with. Every color has slightly different characteristics and each color can vary from batch to batch. So, if you are going to get one it is best to get it with the hotspot.

There are two styles. The “Sidecar” style is shown on the left. The battery is housed on the side of the hotspot. The “Backpack” model is shown in the middle and on the right. The battery is housed on the back side of the hotspot. The Backpack model is available for both the Internal and External antenna Premium Simplex models. There is a Backpack model (not shown) available for the new Premium Simplex No Display model as well.

The battery these are designed for is the Anker PowerCore+ mini 3350mAh Lipstick-Sized Portable Charger (3rd Generation, Premium Aluminum Power Bank)
In our tests, we got between 10 and 13 hours of battery life, depending on the level of activity.

The cable shown above is from StarTech. There are 3 different types depending on the model you have.

These are priced at $19 when purchased at the time you order your hotspot and do not include batteries or cables. We will bill you for the additional charge if you let us know you want one.

We’re sorry, but there is no design available for duplex models. Yet 🙂
