So I am well aware that the XTS radios require an Impres battery in order to be able to display a battery gauge but I have the HNN4003BR battery (Impres) in my XTS2500I and it still doesn't show the battery meter. Does it have to be an XTS Impres battery?

Maybe it does need a Impress Cycle! I guess U know the process to do that?
I can try that but my buddy I got it from always took care of his battery including reconditioning cycles. Don't know if that is the problem but I will try it and update.

If your battery has gone a certain number of days, I forget the number for the XTS line right now, but if the battery exceeds that number of days it will not show the battery gauge on the screen. Let it charge a full cycle in an Impress charger and the battery gauge should come back.

It does have to be a battery designed for a XTS2500. The battery part# you posted is for the HT series radios. While they do work well on the XTS2500's, you will not get a battery gauge on the radio. I used to run the same configuration myself.

On a side note, Power Products makes a decent impres compatible battery for the XTS 1500/2500 line. .

Good luck.
