A good replacement battery--well recommended

  • By Thomas from Alert Bay BC Canada on Tuesday, November 02, 2010
  • Pros: capacity
  • Cons: too tight a fit
  • Review: This replacement has considerably more capacity than the original. It has a very tight fit which would be welcome if my radio had worn attachment rails. Definitely worth the price.

Worked as advertised

  • By A Customer from Tampa FL USA on Tuesday, May 01, 2012
  • Pros: Cost and compatibility
  • Cons: None obvious
  • Review: Fitted immediately, despite cautions from others who'd had fitting problems. Charged with the original wall charger, I haven't had a chance to test the battery life yet but so far it is living up to expectations.

ICOM Replacement Battery NI-MH IC-A20

  • By David L. from Tulsa, OK on Thursday, August 02, 2007
  • Pros: Longer battery life and good endurance
  • Cons: Difficultly sliding into old unit.
  • Review: The unit was a little difficult to slide into the old radio. It required the use of silicon spray to allow it to slide into the rails of the radio.

    Other than that the unit charged fine and is working well.

It works well and holds a charge

  • By Lou from Virginia USA on Monday, January 25, 2010
  • Pros: Replaced the original
  • Cons: Different shade, does not match radio

I would buy this product again

  • By piper140 from Gainesville FL USA on Wednesday, March 24, 2010
  • Pros: Works right out of the box, fully charged and ready to go.
  • Cons: NO swap out for old battery.
  • Review: Product was as described, as others had described a little difficult to put on and take off but a little silicone on the tracks took care of that. Holds a charge very well. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because they don't offer a swap of some sort for the old battery.

Good solution

  • By A Customer from Jersey United Kingdom on Monday, October 20, 2008
  • Review: All round it is excellent solution. Slide is a bit cheap and nasty but it does fit on OK and it works fine. No hesitation in recomending this product.

  • By A Customer from Seattle WA USA on Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Good battery for the price.

  • By David from Lincoln VT USA on Monday, November 10, 2008
  • Pros: More capacity, no memory effect that Ni Cad has
  • Cons: Silghtly off color in apparance.
  • Review: This battery has more capacity with newer technology than the origional one. The color is slightly off and does not match the radio exactly. Not a big issue. It fit the radio snugly, but not a problem. It does not have the memory effect that the old Ni Cad battery had.
