This works great. More expensive than the cheap ones on eBay but it works and won’t overcharge your radio and ruin the battery. Icon needs 11v not the unregulated 14v that comes from a plug in a car. Good quality.
Exactly what I needed
I use this to power my radio and maintain its internal battery. Did the same to power my GPS and EIS. No need for a heavy battery in my electrical system!

The issue with the icom handhelds being used at the same time as they are charged is that when the PTT switch is pressed, the unit can get damage to do the way the circuitry is wired. Per Icom it is not recommended to use and charge an Icom transceiver at the same time.
From end to end, the plug is approximately 85" in length.
