job site radio
Very well built for a job site radio. Makita's style is small & good sound. The size does not displace equipment that you need for the job, but the sound is plenty. The side speakers are intended to project good sound 360 for wherever you are working on the job site. Instead of having to reposition for better sound. I do not feel that the sound quality is compromised at all.

Won't charge
Good product, will be better if it was also a charger. Bluetooth range is not that great. Disconnect at 15 feet.
Won't charge mobile devices with the battery, has to be plug with the ac adapter

Before i bought it i tried the one that came with white frame arounf=d was really disappointed of the quality of the sound and issues with the radio reception, so i returned and exchange for the bluetooth, such a difference, easy to control and establish connection with my iPhone, sound quality are reception are great. can even charge my iPhone at the same time but the radio must be plug in to an outlet only. My only complaint its that the radio does no charge the batteries, otherwise its a great radio, i definitely recomended .

Easy pick
Comments about the Sound being sided by the speaker orientation is erroneous. Good sound and reaches all parts of a room without having to move the radio every time you work in another side of the room. All listeners get a good sound.
So well put together - rubberized handle, roll bars, buttons solid, 4ah battery lasts forever.
The supplied wall chord should fit deliberately in the back battery cabinet

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.
