WOOD magazine review

So-so radio, but a good charging station

Review Summary

Runs on 12–18 volt stem-type battery packs (Ni-Cd, Ni-Mh, Li-Ion); charges 7.2–18 volt packs (all chemistries) The only other radio (with Bosch) that charges batteries, this model has three electrical outlets and one mp3 jack, but music sounds muffled from the two speakers and distorts at volumes needed to be heard 50' away.
