Handheld Radio advice Needed

I use an Icom handheld, waterresistant, easy to use. Two cautions on handhelds, the range is less and the batteries don''t last forever--because it does not take AA''s it needs a charger and 110 current to keep it ready. Not sure what the range is, but it is definitely nowhere near a fullblown cabin radio and antenna running off a 12V system.
