Motorola SL4010e History

In the beginning there were two SL4000 models, SL4000 and SL4010. The SL4000 and SL4010 are the exact same radio, except the SL4010 had an integrated option board. In 2017, SL4000 and SL4010 were replaced by SL4000e and SL4010e, respectively. In 2018, Motorola Solutions announced the SL4000e would be cancelled, leaving only the SL4010e available now.

Charger Options

The Motorola SL4010e, as you might expect, has a few charger options. Most notaably, SL4010e is supplied with a plug-in charger – just like you would get with your mobile phone – and that’s free of charge. However, the part code has changed! The old version was part code PMPN4007 (now cancelled) and the new part code is PS000042A14.


Single Unit Desk Charger

When Motorola Solutions designed the Motorola SL4010e , they really thought about where and how this radio would be used, and the single unit desk charger really demonstrates that.

This is called the “desk charger”. Here at Radiotronics, we’re amazed that some dealers don’t even realise it exists.


Multi-Unit 6-Way Charger

A welcome addition to any growing fleet of radios is a 6-way charger. The SL400e and SL4010e have a great 6-way charger that can either charge 6x radios, 6 batteries, or any combination.

Note: The SL4000e and SL4010e do not fit in the older SL4000/SL4010 PMLN5892A 6-way charger. The current 6-way charger is actually quite a new item. Confusingly the new and old version of this charger look idnetical. But there’s one subtle difference. Since the SL4000 and SL4010 radios had a thinner battery (BT90 / HKNN4013) and used a PMLN6001 slim battery cover, the SL4000 and SL4010 were thinner than the newer E versions and the newer E versions do not fit into the older PMLN5892A charger.

Battery Options

When you purchase your Motorola SL4010e, you will recieve a PMLN4468 battery (also known as BT100) along with a PMLN6745 battery door (also known as back panel). However, there are actually 3 batteries available for the SL4010e.

Battery Door Reference

Each battery requires a different battery door (or back panel).
