Smaller is better is some instances...
Good radio overall, easy to carry and its light. Easy to carry out fishing, working or anything and the 12 volt battery lasts all day even when played loud. The only thing I didn't like was that the radio plays at middle volume every time its turned on so you have to turn down the volume.

Easy To Use
Power House little radio
Bought one of these Bosch radios for my shop at home and I was so impressed with the sound quality and ease of use that I bought another one for use at work. I like the fact that I can dial in the precise station with the digital readout rather than finding stations with the old dial type. Comes with power cord as well as batteries. Excellent value

Nice little radio. No frills or whistles, just light and space saving. Plug your gadget in with an audio-in cord for Pandora type subscriptions

The size and shape of the unit is perfect for picking up and moving from room to room.  The battery lasts me three or more workdays at medium volume.  Great sound!

Needed a digital tuner with presets so I don't waist time trying to tune in stations. Battery operated so I can take it from machine to machine and some are far from any outlet so I don't have to drag out a long extension cord. The handles are great. And the main thing is I can plug in my mp3 player. Its not a thumper but it does sound great! I love it!

I have had this radio almost a year it has had some hard falls gotten a bit of rain on it and it stills works as good as the day I bought it. Great sound for the size.

This radio is great. It gets extremely loud if you want and runs for several days on medium volume on one charge. I do all kinds of work and this goes everywhere with me.

I occasionally run a skid steer and cannot hear my music with my headphones on my phone but I put this radio in the cab with me and can hear it crystal clear.

You can hook up your phone or ipod with the Aux Cable or the reception with it is great for radio stations.

From inside to outside you don't realize how nice a battery powered radio is until you have one. Like I said from the Title. I bought an extra one to leave at home I think so much of it.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
