Rated 4 out of 5Â by SteveAberdeen Superb Portable Radio 18v
This radio is a must for around the house/garden/workshop or in the garage.
It's small and light, so it cant be easily moved around to suit your needs.
It feels very robust, so i'm sure it will take a few knocks.
The power comes from either the Bosch professional 18v or 14v L-ion battery (not included). It can also run off the mains (240v) too.
If you already have a Bosch Professional cordless Drill or other Bosch Professional 18v power tools, then the battery and charger from it will work with this Radio.
The sound quality is really good (crisp & clear), but it has very little in the way of bass, but thats not what this radio is about.
It does go very loud and the battery lasts for days or even up to a week depending on usage.
All in all a great buy !!!
Pros: Small & Light, Easy to Operate, Robust, Loud Volume, Digital Tuner with 10 Station Preset, Aux input for MP3 or iPOD,18v or 14v (use your exisiting Bosch drill battery and charger).
Cons: No DAB, Lacking in Bass (when compared to the Makita BMR104W DAB/FM Site Radio 18V)
