Motorola Radios with Bonus Mini-USB Car Charger Accessory Provide the Perfect Holiday Stocking Stuffer

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. –Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) offers the perfect gift for every family member: a convenient emergency-preparedness communication device. The Motorola Talkabout® EM1000R two-way radios not only keep family members in touch with those who matter most but also provide peace of mind knowing that everyone can enjoy their adventures without missing important emergency or weather alerts. And, just in time for the holiday season, Motorola is offering the perfect stocking stuffer: a free Motorola car charger accessory with the purchase of EM1000R two-way radios at participating retailers.

Practical Features for Every Family Adventure
With a range of up to 20 miles1, the compact EM1000R two-way radios are ideal for family emergency kits. The radios contain a variety of practical features to keep everyone prepared in any circumstance or setting – from remote mountainside ski retreats to unexpected power outages at home. The EM1000Rs are equipped with an emergency alert feature, which enables users to activate a siren and transmit messages to other radio users. The radios also feature a built-in LED flashlight for unexpected weather emergencies and power outages, an emergency checklist and access to
seven National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and four Environment Canada (EC) weather channels, which provide continuous broadcasts of local and regional weather updates.2

Convenient Communication with Clear Connections
During winter ski outings, families can enjoy the convenience of hands-free communication with the iVOX speech-activated feature. The EM1000R also has flexible charging options for ultimate mobility. Families can choose to charge in the standard, dual drop-in charger or use the mini-USB port in the radio to charge with the included mini-USB car charger, which is especially useful during long road trips. And, for remote adventures, double-A alkaline batteries are ideal for a quick recharge when no power is available.

The EM1000R has 22 channels, each of which has 121 privacy codes, providing users with 2,662 possible combinations of communication. Motorola’s exclusive QT (Quiet Talk) function eliminates interference from other manufacturers.
