Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that it charges my battery! I really like this radio a lot! I had the smaller mini Bluetooth speaker as well but my father-in-law wanted a small battery powered radio to take with him to his garden so I gave him that one and now have this big guy! Although the radio has a great sound, plenty of volume, and functions in all the ways I would have hoped, I mostly love it because it serves as a battery charger! I only had one single charger before this radio and now I can charge another battery and listen to something at the same time! That may not be a big factor for you, but that's a big deal for me and is reason enough to recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It This new radio has some great new features that really make a difference. Finally I can charge a battery with the radio (A must Have Option). The new cored is flexible and will stay in the storage position because of its flexibility and the longer antenna, I always have reception. Good sound and durable outer shelf. I would recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charge baby charge Yet again I’m impressed with Ridgid, they’re constantly improving their tools and they are listening to their consumers. I have the gen 5 radio and love it, but one thing I wish it had was a built in charger. Well here it is new and improved radio with a built in charger, it’s a great feature to have a charger because I leave the battery in there and it’s always charged when I have no outlets near me. The sound is great and well loud enough to hear over the tools running at the job site. The app is well designed that you can control the features of the radio. Aux and usb are also well thought out. Let me not forget to mention that this bad boy I’d super strong and durable, it’s been hit dropped and rained on and it just keeps going and going, I love this radio

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the sound quality and easy for on the go Ridgid keeps thinking about the small details that matter to the consumer. I work in my shop each day and love how easy it is to connect to bluetooth and listen to my favorite playlist. But the small details is what I love most about this radio. I can charge my batteries conveniently as well as my iphone/ipad. It has a small cut on the top of the handle that make it easy for your phone or iPad to fit in when you are in the shop. With job site radios in the past, the music has been soft and hard to hear over the sound of saws and sanders, but not for this bad boy! Plenty of sound for our workplace for everyone to hear. Well done Ridgid! Just another reason I am so happy to be #TeamRIDGID for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice radio I really like this radio. It's great to have an extra charger on the jobsite. Especially when it's combined with music! This radio gets beat up on the sites, rained on, tools and wood get dropped on it and it keeps playing tunes. I pumps out loud enough to hear the music over the loud background. It's also a good size for a jobsite radio. It's well made and will stand up to daily use at the job sites. I love it and it goes with me on every job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jobsite radio I actually really like this radio! I like that it charges battery packs when plugged in to shore power. It sounds great and plays loud enough at the job site I can hear the music over the background noise. This radio has been through a rough life so far in my hands. It's held up to the abuse and still keeps kickin. I recommend this radio to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WooooHooooo it has a charger!! I think This is the best radio on the market, it has everything. Bluetooth, aux cable, charger. 110v cord, 18 battery power (battery not included). Am,fm. Let me say I'm really glad Ridgid was finally able to put the charger in this thing I realize it was not ridgids fault they couldn't do it and I patiently waited and it was worth it. The thing is built like a tank has great sound easy to use and I like the little compartment on the end so I can put my phone if I want to. Oh did I remember to say. IT CHARGES YOUR BATTERY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better and Better Just when you think the Ridgid radio's can't get any better... they do! This new Ridgid radio now has the ability to charge the very batteries it uses. When you're plugged in it's charging the battery and when you unplug it keeps going off the battery. The run time is crazy . I use a small 2amp hour battery in it at full blast it will give you nearly 4 hours of play. With a 6amp it will last you a full day. I love the fact that you can use your smart phone as a remote to have full control over all the radio functions. It also seems to be a tad louder then the gen 5 non charging radio. Overall I am super pleased with it's performance and durability. Exactly what I expect from a great tool company!
