Dewalt DCR018 12V-20V MAX Compact Worksite Radio

The jobsite doesn't always have to be a mess of noise from power tools and construction, crank up the tunes with DeWALT's Worksite Radio. Built to handle the harsh environments and demands of the jobsite, DeWALT's DC011 Radio/Charger features a rugged roll cage and weather resistant speakers. Capable of running off both AC/DC and 12V to 20V batteries, the radio quickly transforms from a portable jobsite radio to a USB device charging station. With the choice of a built-in AM/FM digital tuner, auxiliary ports to connect IPods, MP3 players and more, you play what you want to hear on the jobsite with clear sound quality.
  • The cordless radio function runs off 18V Ni-Cd / Lithium-Ion, 12V Max, or 20V Max DeWalt batteries making it compatible with DeWalt's largest systems of batteries
  • AC/DC power allowing the flexibility to be powered by AC power cord or DeWalt power tool batteries
  • Device storage box protects digital audio devices from jobsite debris and damage
  • USB power port allows devices to be charged via USB when radio is plugged into AC wall outlet or when running off DEWALT battery pack
  • Heavy duty design with roll cage increases durability to withstand jobsite abuse

Neat Little Radio
I recieved this as a gift four years ago and overall I am satisified with its performance. Its rigid construction and outer "cage" allow for it to be placed anywhere you go. The radio does allow for numerous battery types to be accepted so that it can be powered either via its own power cord or battery power, adding to its versatility (NOTE: Batteries cannot be charged using this radio, but given its size and other features it doesn't detract from my rating). The door on the side hides an auxillary audio input jack and USB port, and the cavity is large enough to house a small music playing device such as a cellphone or iPod. However, since the radio is not Bluetooth enabled, you will have to purchase a Bluetooth reciever; but it can be stored and charged within the secret compartment on the side. The quality of the speaker on this radio is decent cosidering the pricepoint, though it would be nice to adjust the quality of the reception or playback settings for the speaker.

Bought this radio to listen to music in my garage and after just 18 months it stopped working. This unit has lived in my garage and has never been subject to adverse weather. Looked at the bottom of radio to read label stating “Made in China”, no surprise.
