Comments about Job Site Radio:

I workout outside once a week with a bunch of colleagues relatively close to a busy road. I hook up my phone with the Spartacus workout video (DL from Youtube) to the boombox. Pump up the volume and go. Works great. Even when there's wind and road noise our group (approx. 8 to 10) can still feel the beat, hear the music and follow the instructions. Battery goes long too without recharging.

    Comments about Job Site Radio:

    I use a job site radio when working outside on building and maintenance projects. I also own a DEWALT radio which had sub-standard sound so I gave it to a less-demanding friend for entertainment. I have had good luck with Milwaukee hand tools and the research I did provided info I needed to be more selective about what I bought in a replacement unit. I like the fact that it can be stored on its side for convenient space conservation. I looked for a radio with an MP3 port. Reception is great- sound reproduction and increased volume without distortion is excellent.

          Comments about Milwaukee Job Site Radio:

          I bought one of these in my first few months when I got this job almost a year and a half ago. I work at a CNC Machining company so it can get very loud in there at anytime. Every day it has played and charged my phone at almost its max volume for 8-12 hours a day and I have NEVER had a single problem with it. With all the abuse it had gone through from being dropped several times, metal shavings, small amounts of water(mostly rain), and all day use in the garage and outdoors. I absolutely love this and I have actually bought three of them since my first one, the other two being gifts. There are only two things that I did not like about it and one of them is that it cannot charge the battery pack while it is plugged in so you have to buy a charger for them as well and that there is no remote.

                Q:

                i purchased this radio last year to use in my UPS truck along with two battery packs and a charger. must say that i am very pleased,especially as it works with my ipod, and use this product ten or more hours a day. then suddenly one day the control buttons (volume, mode, tuning, mute etc) ceased to work at all. according to the amazon website through which i purchased my radio there is a five year warranty. is it possible yo get the device repaired or replaced as it is hands down the best work radio i've had in the twenty-three years i've been a ups driver

                  The radio gets excellent reception, but if you are in a "steel building" no radio is going to get good reception without an external antenna.

                  This comes with (2) "AA" Batteries, these are only for the purpose of memory backup. It is compatible with 12V-28V batteries including M series, V series and NiCad. The 12 volt DC output jack can be used to charge other devices, like cell phones any other items that are 500 mA of DC electrical current or less. The power output has a USB port.
