Aftermarket battery that replaces the 760 mAh NI-MH battery (BP-200L) for the Icom IC-A5 and Icom IC-A23.

1450mAh Ultra Long Life high capacity Nickel Metal Hydride battery pack. Includes heavy-duty Belt Clip. Pack is same thickness as the AA alkaline case. Provides Hi-Watt TX!

What's the difference between Ni-Cad and Ni-MH batteries?
The main difference between the two is that NiMH battery (the newer technology of the two) offers a higher energy density than NiCads. In other words, the capacity of a NiMH is approximately twice the capacity of its NiCad counterpart. What this means is for you is increased run-time from the battery with no additional bulk or weight. NiMH also offers another major advantage: NiCad batteries tend to suffer from what is called the "memory effect". NiMH batteries are less prone to develop this problem and thus require less maintenance and conditioning. NiMH batteries are also more environmentally friendly than NiCad batteries since they do not contain heavy metals (which present serious landfill problems).

Will my original wall charger work with this battery?
Yes, this battery will work just like the battery that came with your transceiver.  It's can use the same Icom BC-110 wall charger that came with your radio

Will this battery work with the Icom BC-119 Rapid Desktop Charger?
No, this battery is slightly thicker than the original battery so it will not fit in the charging cup on the Icom Rapid Charger.  If you want a Rapid Charger, you will need to go with our Super Charger for the IC-A5 / IC-A23.

An improvement on the original

  • By David from Auckland New Zealand on Tuesday, February 27, 2018
  • Pros: Improved power reserve
  • Review: Good product and expedient delivery to the other side of the world.

Anything less is uncivilized

  • By James from Houston TX USA on Monday, October 02, 2017
  • Pros: All day long performance, great standby times
  • Review: Huge capacity vs the stock battery pack, holds a standby charge well without a visit to the charger. We now use this battery in the icon a23 for ground to air when solo working students and chasing radio issues. I put up with the stock battery and piss poor performance for too long. Get the rapid charger with it, no more plug in today, don't forget it tomorrow issues.

Good product so far.

  • By Ross from Castro Valley CA USA on Wednesday, July 12, 2017
  • Pros: Same design (externally) and size, works with my equipment as standard.
  • Review: The first one I bought is still functional at 7 years old. I was hearing a lot of static, and feared it was failing, so purchased a new one. Turns out the old one is still fine. I've used the new one only once, but it's just as functional as the first one, so I have a very nice back up now!

I would buy this product again

    Q: I'm trying to find out if this battery will charge in the rapid charger that I just bought from you. The original battery that came with my ICOM A23 won't charge with the rapid charger that I bought from you so I'm looking for another battery. This says that the battery will work with the ICOM , but the rapid charger says it works with the BP-200H and 200F. When I type that into your search engine it comes up with this battery, but doesn't indicate the type battery! Please let me know if this battery will work with the charger that I purchased from you.... Thanks Bruce
