Aftermarket battery that replaces the 600 MAH NI-Cad battery (CM-166) for the Icom IC-A22/IC-A3.

This is a 12v 1300mAh Nickel Metal Hydride battery for ICOM IC-A22 and IC-A3.  It's the same size as original stock battery, with twice the operating time ! Hi-Watt power! 

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 the same size and form factor and can use the same wall charger that came with your radio.

It works great.

  • By David from Nanaimo BC Canada on Monday, April 10, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: This battery works just fine for me. I was told by a radio tech in Victoria BC Canada that the unit was not available in Canada and I would probably have to settle for an alternate fix. ie several batteries in a pack.

More mAh, less problems

  • By Dan from Eugene OR USA on Friday, August 05, 2016
  • Pros: Much longer battery life, slightly lighter weight
  • Review: Product exceeded expectations. Exceeding 100% of stock talk time regularly and can use A22 for VOR more often with additional capacity. If you need a replacement A22 battery, feel free to dump your NiCd and buy this. Product workmanship and feel are identical, but battery is not icom branded if that matters to you.

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Sunday, March 11, 2018

    Q: Have a battery pack 10 batteries. Will the Ni Hyd battery replace the battery pack. Also do not have an original charger will any 12 volt charger with correct plug work ok. Thanks for your help. This is reference to ICOM Navcom A 22

    A: Yes, this is a rechargeable NiMH replacement for the IC-A22 battery pack. We also have a Icom 110V Wall Charger available for the IC-A22.  This wall charger is made by Icom, designed specifically for their products. We can only recommend this product as a direct replacement for the charger.

    Q: Is this battery warranted in any way?I purchased an identical battery to replace the original in my A3 this past August from Aircraft Spruce. Re-charged once since then and now no good;no performance.At the cost of this product I would expect better quality and length of service. Now I`m dead in the water with no communication.

    A: Sorry to hear about the issue with the previous battery that you purchased.  This battery only has a 90 day warranty but we've sold thousands of these and rarely hear about any problems.

  • Friday, September 30, 2016

    Q: Looking for a battery case for an Icom A-22. The battery case holds 10 AA batteries. Thx

    A: The Alkaline Battery case CM-167 was discontinued by Icom in April 2015 and is no longer being produced.  This rechargeable battery is the only option for the IC-A22 now.

  • Sunday, January 19, 2014

    Q: I have a Navicom IC-A22 with a CM-167 multiple battery pack (10 x AA!!). Is there a single NiMH replacement pack?

    A: Yes, this is a rechargeable NiMH replacement for the IC-A22 battery pack.

  • Friday, February 08, 2013

    Q: can u supply a replacement battery pack for an Icom transceiver ic-22e Battery ref no. Cm-166

    A: Yes, this is the replacement battery for the CM-166 battery.

  • Saturday, August 20, 2011

    Q: What kind of self-discharge rate does this battery show? Will a charge last years, months, weeks or days without use before needing a recharge? That's been the annoyance with the OEM battery pack (CM-166) that came with the radio - whenever I want to use it, the battery is dead.

    A: The original CM-166 battery was a Nicad battery and this is a NiMH battery.  In general, any Nicad battery will have a much faster discharge rate.  However, even with a NiMH battery you can only expect it to hold a full charge for several weeks and it's always best to recharge them before you might need them.  If you really only want to keep it around for emergencies and not worry about charging, you might want to consider getting an Alkaline Battery Case and keeping some rechargeable AA batteries around.

  • Saturday, July 30, 2011

    Q: I have a Icom A-22 transceiver. I need a new battery. Will the IC-22/IC-A3 work on this unit

    A: Yes, this is a direct replacement of the battery that you have in the IC-A22 and it will work with your existing charger.

  • Sunday, January 24, 2010

    Q: I'm looking for a headset adapter for ICOM A-3, and A-4 aviation handheld radios that plug into the radio (two male plugs) and ONE plug to military single plug helmet, with a Push to Talk (PTT)plug or actual PTT button. This saves having multiple adapters.

    A: From what we understand, Icom does not make a headset adapter that has a single U174 connection for helicopters. Unfortunately you would need to use the OPC-499 Headset Adapter in conjunction with a Fixed Wing to Helicopter Adapter.

  • Friday, January 18, 2008

    Q: What size is this battery, what voltage?

    A: This is a 12 volt 1200mAh battery.
