pretty good radio
Had a couple issues with reception, but other than that works great. The large knob makes it easy to use when wearing gloves. The aux input is nice when I want to listen to Pandora off my phone. The rubber around the edges does a pretty good job of protecting the casing. Its smaller than most, but also makes it easy to move and still sounds great.

Great Radio, Clear Sound
I've had this radio for a couple of years and love it. It's a great compact size, has a large, clear display (which is very well protected by the metal bars!), and nice sound quality. As the listing shows, it has 2 AUX inputs, 1 on the front, and one inside the battery compartment, which is 5-minute rain resistant. The AUX inputs mean you can plug pretty much anything with a headphone jack into...

I've had this radio for a couple of years and love it. It's a great compact size, has a large, clear display (which is very well protected by the metal bars!), and nice sound quality. As the listing shows, it has 2 AUX inputs, 1 on the front, and one inside the battery compartment, which is 5-minute rain resistant. The AUX inputs mean you can plug pretty much anything with a headphone jack into it. No, it won't charge or control an I-Pod, which is fine, because those cables are expensive. The trick with the AUX input in the battery compartment is that it's right by where the lithium batteries go in. All you need to do is get a right angle AUX cord, and it will fit fine. I also love that it uses 2 AA batteries to store the clock and radio presets. It's annoying on other radios that you lose that stuff when you take the batteries out. I like to look at the other reviews on here, to see what other people didn't like about it. More than anything else, they say it doesn't charge batteries. A couple of points on that: first, nowhere does it say or imply it does--don't knock something for a feature only 1 radio has due to a patent on the feature--if you need a charger, use a separate one, or get a radio with a charger. Second, have you ever used a radio with a built-in charger? They've gotten better, but you still get bad sound and horrible interference/noise. Plus, when you're charging a battery, the radio has to be plugged in, defeating the purpose of buying a cordless/portable radio. For the customer who was upset about the lack or a charger due to having to buy a separate battery and charger, my suggestion is buy a radio that runs on C or D batteries. The whole point of buying a specific tool-brand radio is that you already have the tools, and therefore, the requisite batteries and chargers to make it run. Keep in mind the compact size, light weight, and low price of this radio. It is so much more portable than what else is out there, and for the cost savings over the monster radio with the charger, you could darn near buy an additional charger, which by the way charges bigger batteries in half the time! Plug in the charger and charge your batteries by the wall, then take the radio wherever you want to go! Cut the cord!!!

Great radio just wish it charged batteries as well
This radio has great sound, reception is excelent and the 2 input jacks for i pods is nice especially if the weather is bad you can put your i pod in the storage area so it stays dry. I wish it charged batteries also like the Dewalt radio but i'm not about to change from makita tools just for a radio that charges batteries. Overall good radio and a nice size.

Like others said, wish it would charge batteries. Other than that, it's a solid little radio
