The BC-197, 6-Way Multi-Charger is a new Icom charger for the IC-F3002 entry level series. The BC-197 is smaller in size and lower in height than Icom’s other 6 way charger, the BC-121N. There are 6 charging positions with function indicator LEDs.
The smart charging function, originally introduced in the BC-190 single rapid charger, has been also employed in this new BC-197. This microprocessor-controlled function automatically re-charges the battery as needed to prevent charge from being completely drained. Therefore, even if the radio happens to remain turned-on and keep receiving signals in the charger, it can constantly be re-charged with sufficient charge left for the next use.
When you order the BC-197, it will come with the charger, cups & AC adapter (AD-120, AD-121 or AD-122) all in one. The replacement cups will NOT work with the BC-121N
Suitable for IC-F3102D/F4102D
