Eliminate Bluetooth Interference with Zebra’s Proprietary Wi-Fi Friendly Mode

Offered exclusively from Zebra, Wi-Fi Friendly mode ensures that your cordless DS2278-HC scanners do not operate on channels that are shared with your Wi-Fi network, protecting Wi-Fi network performance for your caregivers, clinicians, patients and visitors.

A Battery and Charging System Designed to Last

The long-lasting 2400 mAh Lithium Ion battery in the cordless DS2278-HC will likely never need to be replaced, reducing total cost of ownership and simplifying everyday management by eliminating the need to purchase and manage a battery pool. Additionally, the position of the charging contacts in the DS2278-HC’s charging cradle, combined with Zebra’s exclusive Connect+ Contact Technology, assures reliable, corrosion-free charging over the life of the scanner.
