Portable police scanners, also known as handheld scanners, can be used in the home, in the car, or walking around town. Portable scanners run on batteries (and many models come with, or can be used with, re-chargeable batteries), but the radios can also be run off of wall-power with an included AC adapter. Newer models come with a USB cable, and no wall adapter (available separately), but it's the same USB power adapter that works with the Apple iPhone and similar devices. You can charge and program these scanners from a PC as well. Portable police scanners generally receive just as well as base models. The low-end handheld scanners (priced around $100) do not offer trunking or digital capabilities, which you may need in your area. A new class of portables, called pre-programmed or HomePatrol scanners, can be used right out of the box, but we also recommend that you consider having us perform our Setup and Optimize service to insure that the latest database and operating system are in the radio and we will program a Favorites List for you of targeted frequencies specific to your home area. Explore below for in-depth portable police scanner details and product reviews and if you are unsure whether a low-end basic police scanner or a high-end digital scanner radio model is required for where you live, check policescanners.net, call us at 1-800-SCANNER or e-mail us. We'll be glad to help.
