• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Ok, one disappointment on the final units with final battery. I really don't like battery life (max 320 minutes). So, we'll change to a high-capacity battery (entails a new battery door and making the unit about 8mm thicker at the base...which should actually relieve those of you worried about instability).

But, we aren't going to delay first shipments. Instead, all first adopters with the "standard" battery will get a free extended battery+battery door once they are available, around August. All you'll have to do is register the scanner and we'll automatically send when ready.

Here's the notice we're putting in the box for those first units:

IMPORTANT NOTICE!
After final design, we found that the battery life with the included battery did not meet our expectations for run time. So, we are changing our design to use a bigger battery that can last 8 hours. When this battery is ready, we will send you one, at no charge. Simply register your scanner at:
my.uniden.com
We appreciate your patience while we get these into production.

August seems like a long time away...until one looks at the calendar and realized that it's nearly June!

Thanks for the update UPMan! Not only is it great news that the SDS will have at least 8hrs of battery life, initial scanner units should also be shipping soon and Uniden isn't going to shortchange early adopters just to get rolling on production!

so will the later revised units have a thicker case? Or will the later revised units look identical to the first units once they (the first units) receive the parts in the mail in august?

To my understanding:
The case will not be thicker, the battery cover will be deeper and not flush with the rest of the back case to accommodate the higher capacity cell.

Wow, excellent handling Paul and Uniden. At this late stage, I am certain some or many companies would have not taken any action and just looked the other way. This says a lot about you. Nice job and thank you!
