GTS Customizes Suite of Batteries for San Antonio

The Challenge

San Antonio is home to over 4,000 police officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical support personnel who rely on Harris radios in order to communicate. According to Sgt. Gabe Trevino of the San Antonio Police Department, users had significant issues with batteries after switching to Harris P7100 radios. Their batteries just lasted a few hours.

The Solution

As a solution, Global Technology Systems Inc. developed a customized full suite of batteries and chargers to meet San Antonio’s requirements for full shift operation of their critical communication devices. These products were extensively tested and were relied upon when San Antonio was host to the NCAA® Final Four® in April 2008 at the Alamodome.

The Result

The HMA2104-LiP NEOCELL® battery, combined with San Antonio’s suite of chargers, provides users with 20+ hours of run time. Because of their overwhelming success, the batteries are currently being distributed to all personnel with P7100 radios.

With GTS, we now have a product that has solved our longevity issue dealing with batteries. Since deploying GTS on the streets the complaints about radios not lasting have stopped,”
