|The A16 is built tough and rugged like all Icom radios. It is the smallest radio with the loudest audio on the market, featuring 1500 mW of powerful clear audio. Packed with 6 watts of power for longer range, the A16 is also waterproof to IP67 standards. The A16 is the ideal flight companion for the student pilot, for ground crew with one hand operation on the flight line, or as a back up in your ditch bag. Its 2400mAh Li-ion battery lasts over 17 hours, and the radio includes a sit-in rapid charger.|

Perfect for what I use it for. Had great experience with ICOM radios.
I am very happy with this radio. Itâ€™s very well made, compact, and very reasonably priced. Nice handheld radio.
I like the size and power that this product brings. I use it when working around our airport as well as when I am visiting various Fly-ins.
Just received the unit and unboxed, very well built, rugged and looks like it should last many years. Am always impressed with ICOM products, rock solid. You just dont see work like this anymore. Working with Aircraft Spruce was a pleasure as always, courteous, responsive and right on top of the order. Well done.
The A16 has a very specific headset adapter OPC-2401, so the same headset adapter will not work. Our part number for the headset adapter is 11-17397. Per the manual the A16 is capable of connecting via bluetooth, if the headset has that capability.
Per Icom: Transmit output power for the Icom A16 is 6.0 W.
Yes, ICOM A16 has a cigarette plug charging option PN# CP-23L, our part # 11-18551 (see accessories).
Per Icom, you are able to use this in Canada, however, there is no certification number as it is a handheld radio.
Per the specifications, you can store up to 200 frequencies.
Yes, part # 11-17236 does have side tone via using a third party aviation headset.
