WTB: Icom M72charging cradle
« on: August 29, 2016, 06:28:04 PM »

The charging cradle for my handy Icom M72 has died but the radio is still going strong.   Has anyone had the reverse happen and still have a good cradle they would like to sell?   One part number is BC-166.

thanks

D

Is it the battery cup or the ac adapter that's bad?

It is the charger itself that I fried.  Since the M72 is 10 years old I splurged on a new M73 with a compatible charging base and now have a backup.  Problem solved although if repairable I would still try to fix it if for no other reason than the challenge of soldering tiny parts.

isn't the charger made up of the battery base w/ a receptacle -- that takes the plug that's on either the A/C adapter or the D/C cable?

Well, I hard wired the 12 volt cord into the panel and mistakenly swapped the wires.   Oops.

Oops!  ;-). I suppose there's nothing lost in dissecting 'er and seeing if a diode is fried.  My guess it's a chip and it probably won't be evident what's bad.
