Icom America introduces the IC-M25, the marine industry's new compact and lightweight floating 5W handheld radio. Icom's new VHF radio features the company's popular Float'n Flash™ function and a long-lasting internal battery that is charged with a micro USB connector. The radio is available with Metallic Gray, Pearl White or Marine Blue color accents.

The new IC-M25 builds upon Icom's celebrated M24 handheld with several enhancements. The M25 is light and compact, weighing approximately 7.8 oz. and measuring 1.2-in. in slim dimensions. The M25 includes an internal 1500mAh battery, which can be charged via micro USB connector or a smartphone charging accessory. Typical battery life is up to 11 hours of operation.

The IPX7 waterproof M25 also features Icom's popular Float ' Flash, a function that emits a bright red flashing LED when the radio is dropped in water. The radio delivers powerful 550mW audio output and can be connected to a new optional speaker microphone (HM-213). The Mil-Spec chassis features a large backlit LCD, simple user interface and sleek, stylish 2-tone color variations: Black/Metallic Gray; Black/Pearl White; and Black/Marine Blue.

The new M25 in Metallic Gray is available now; Pearl White and Marine Blue color choices are available late Summer 2015. All radios have a suggested retail price of $245.00. For more information, contact an Authorized Icom Dealer and visit the M25 product page online.
