Value Packaging
Packaged with a 1300 mAh Lithium-Ion battery, the HX471S will deliver 10-12 hours of continuous operation off a single charge. In addition, the Lithium-Ion battery never will develop a "memory" inhibiting its ability to deliver a complete day of service. Attaching either the 120 VAC or 12 VDC cable to the NMEA Charging cradle allows the battery to be charged within 3 hours, after which time the radio is trickle charged to keep the battery topped off.

Built Better, Backed Better
Because the HX471S is built better, it�s backed better. If the STANDARD HORIZON HX471S Portable radio fails for any reason (including water damage) during normal use in the first 3 years of ownership, STANDARD HORIZON will repair or replace it free, without hassle or charges. If it fails anytime thereafter in normal use, for as long as the original purchaser owns the radio, Standard Horizon�s Lifetime Flat Rate Service or Customer Loyalty Programs will cover it. The rates for the Flat Rate and Customer Loyalty Program�s are determined at the time of the original purchase.
