Great radio for the money
Go ahead and spend the money for a more expensive radio that does the same as this one for a lower price and I'll take my extra money and pocket it. This radio is awesome. The sound is great and the added MP3 plug-in is great when you can't get any radio stations. You don't need to spend the [$] for a DeWaltt with the same features as this radio. Save your money and get more MP3 downloads.

Great Radio
Bought this to replace a very old radio that didn't get good reception and had a very scratchy Sound. Its used primarly in the shop and out in the yard. It sounds and picks up more stations than the old one. CPO had a good price and great service as always.

It is what it is :)
I first want to say this is a great radio,Then I also want to say it is clearly advertised that it doesn't charge batteries.There are two outlets on the front to plug in your chargers..With that being said I really don't understand how every one brings this up in reviews on this tool?!?!
I would be concerned if you couldn't plug in your charger(s),but that is not the case.I have many Porter Cable chargers and why would i want to make them obsoleat? Wonderful job site radio & that is all! Rob Young,Rhode Island

Great radio for the price! The aux input is the best feature and very rugged. I could throw it in the back of my truck with my other tools and not have to worry about breaking it.
