Inverseyourself Posted September 4, 2022 Report Share Posted September 4, 2022 I bought an ICOM M73 2-1/2 years ago. I charged it once after purchase. I only turn it on 5 seconds on occasion to check its battery status. It always announces a full charge. I’ve never done a radio check with it, so have not transmitted to challenge the battery. I have listened to WX on a few occasions just to see if doing that for 20 minutes reduces the charge. It has stayed stubbornly at “all bars”. Has anyone else made this experience and then noticed a precipitous decline in charge once they started transmitting? Do my “all bars” give me a false sense of security? Should I just buy a fresh battery after 2 years? Thanks for any insight! Andy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
