icom m72

hi,
i just got an icom m72 handheld VHF.

it came with battery charger BC-166 and AC power supply BC 147A.

I am trying to figure a way to be able to use this charger with a cigarette lighter adapter and 12 volt (while in my boat, I don't have an inverter).

I've read the manual and it seems the only way to accomplish this is to buy a new charger (BC 119N) and cigarette light cable CP-17L.

Is this my only option

thank you for the help,
Jon

Jon-

Unfortunately, it does look like that is the only option for you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Instead of lining Icoms pockets and getting a one trick pony...consider one of these...much more useful and cheap!

The Icom M72 is an great radio. I have owned one for 2 years and no problems. West Marine has an 12 volt cigarettes power cord under the west marine label for about $10 that will plug into the charging base. This will let you charge radio from an 12 volt lighter socket.

BTW, the rectangular port on the left front side of the inverter is a USB power port... to power USB-port powered items like an iPod or cell phone charging cable.
