Special condition for use
Must be used with the BP-232FM battery. The HM-169IS, VS-1SC, HS-94 and HS-97 are approved as instrinsically safe options. Any other options, except the antenna, belt clip and belt hanger, cannot be used in explosive atmosphere areas.

Never change the BP-232FM (with/without the transceiver) in an explosive atmosphere. The optional battery chargers are not approved as intrinsically safe.
