Hand Held Icom Battery

One of My Icom M1 Euro's as just stopped charging, the middle charging contact on the battery as corroded away. We have a few of these so it could be between 13 months and 24 months old.

Anyone know the best way to go about getting freebie replacment from Icom now the big mans donna runner?

The Icom VHF radios I buy here (non marine) come with a 2 year warranty from Icom so if the marine stuff is the same you ought to be able to get it from the dealer you bought it from? If in doubt change the battery to one of the newer sets before taking it back

The radio has three year warranty but this does not cover the battery.
They only have a 1 year warranty.

Having said that if looked after it should not be damaged as you describe.

Sam Taylor-Nobbs is the sales manager at Icom give him a call and see if he can help you out.

Best regards

Cheers guys, we normally run fresh water over them and put vaseline on the conector from the battery to the radio, not noticed the corrosion on this one, just come back from the xmas hols and the hole contact as corroded and dropped off.

Will contact Sam at Icom.

Battery

Hi Jono,
Strange that as I have the same battery. I bought one on E-bay last year tofind the centre (charging) terminal was corroded away. I pressed on this and got replacement which meant that my one was at least used. Its the last thing I will buy on E-bay. I had to pay Import duty aka Paddy Tax on the bloody thing.
I gave the working unit to a friend as I was not using it and he needed one.
I still have the spare battery. I sugest that if you drill away the plastic and replace terminal with Soldered unit, it will work.
It seems tho that this is a fault with the unit. If you need to prove to manufacturer, then advies me and I will send my one to you to endorse your argument.
This is too similar to be a coincidence.

Aidan
