Icom IC-M25 - Buoyant Marine VHF Transceiver (Grey)

Slim, Lightweight, and Easy to Use. The IC-M25 is extremely lightweight, weighing only 220 g. Its 30.5 mm slim body is extremely comfortable to handle. The large LCD display and laser-cut, curved shape buttons are well laid out and provide simple and straightforward operation. In fact, the IC-M25 LCD screen is 30% larger than its predecessor, the IC-M23, allowing you to clearly see the channel number and status icons.


Buoyant with flashing red LED. The IC-M25 floats when dropped in water. Not only does the LCD and key backlight on the front panel flash, but also the red LED light blinks through the rear panel showing the place of the radio so that it can be easily retrieved. The IC-M25 also floats even when the optional HM-165 microphone is attached.


11 Hours Long Battery Life. The built-in 1500mAh lithium-ion battery provides 5 Watts of transmit power and allows 11 hours (approximate) of long operation. (Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90).


USB Charging. The IC-M25 has a Micro-B USB connector and can be charged with the supplied AC adaptor, BC-217 in 3 hours (approx.). Third-party USB charger products such as cigarette lighters or mobile batteries for charging smartphones, tablets or digital cameras may be used with the IC-M25.


550mW Audio Output and Optional Speaker Microphone. The IC-M25 provides a powerful 550 mW (12 Ohm load) audio output and the received voice can be heard loud and clear.
