  7. Smart Batteries Your portable radio comes with a “smart battery” called Impres, from Motorola. Butler County has all Impres batteries and Impres chargers. The battery stores information about its current charge and the history of its charge cycles. It sends that information to the radio and to the charger. You can’t burn the battery by leaving it on the charger. The charger will recondition the battery on its own when it thinks a reconditioning is needed. The batteries have shown to have a life of 12 to 15 hours of heavy use at the Butler County Jail.
