Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grab and go Many days, I have to jump in the truck and go to a job site and dont have time to think through all the details of what I need to power things up, but with RIDGID batteries, I just keep enough in the truck to provide power for my radio, and 5-6 power tools for the day and I am set. I love this specific radio because its weather proof- I have literally had it in a downpour and it works and sounds great. I love also that it is incredibly durable! It has taken many beating with the work that I do and has not skipped a beat. One time I even dropped a 2x10x12 pine board right no top of it when it was playing and it works just fine. It didn't even scratch it! Thank you Ridgid for designing such great products and ones that I can trust will continue to work in the natural environments that are around and also the crazy environments that I might inflict on it.... :) All the more reasons why I am proud to be #TeamRIDGID for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool little radio I'm the type that likes to have music playing in the background just about always. So I saw this little guy and thought I would give it a try. I've been impressed with it so far. It sounds good, it's durable and the battery life is amazing. It usually sits in my small shop and collects a lot of dust but just keeps working. My 2 year old loves to smash on the buttons and hasn't broken it yet. My true test of tools is to let my son play with them and if they don't break they are pretty durable. He chucks my radio off the table over and over onto the concrete floor. It's cringe worthy. Overall this radio goes with me to job sites and keeps working I love it! Recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet radio I bought this radio with the idea of it being a good camping radio. It has proved to be true. It's small and fits in well at the camp site. It's also a tough little bugger, it gets ash from the fire blown onto it from time to time and still pumps out great sound. I've been impressed with this radio and recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Radio This is a very well built and great sounding radio in a small package. It's nice to have a radio that I can just grab and set it anywhere. It has some great features such as bluetooth and usb charger for a devise such as your phone. The free downloadable APP is pretty kool in itself. You can change volume, stations and set alarms. This radio is very durable and batteries last a looong time. All covered by the lifetime warranty... Can't go wrong here. So, if your looking for a BIG radio in a small package this is it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sounds great! First, this radio sounds great for its small size. I like the size for my shop, it fits perfectly. It's always the first thing I turn on when I go to the shop. It's small size makes it easy for me to throw in the tool bucket and take to all the job sites. With that being said, it takes some abuse getting knocked around in the tool bucket. It has held up great so far. I can listen to the radio all day on one battery. This little radio has taken the test and passed. I recommend this to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This little Radio packs a punch! I gave this baby a complete run down pinning it against it's gen x4 predecessor. At max volume this little bad boy can reach a max db level of 85db (1foot away from speaker)super loud and clear with precise well defined bass. Unlike the x4 at max volume 75db and the not so predominant bass response. The new gen5 is stable to 60hz unlike the x4 at 70hz. It's loaded to the gills with more features that weren't available on the x4 like a 5v usb charging port, 10 FM/Am presets, bluetooth connectivity, bass and tremble adjustments, all packed in a 30% smaller case. Other great features like a clock and battery indicator. Expect a 2amp battery to last you a min of 8 hours on full volume. I think this has to be the loudest clearest little speaker Ridgid has ever made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great radio for my shop! This is a great little radio and perfect for my garage! I love the fact that it is small and compact and can fit on my tool shelf. But don't let the small size fool you. It puts out a good amount of volume! The radio is just a bit wider than the 4ah battery I use with it and it puts out a nice clean sound. As a test, I let it run on the 4ah battery full charge and it lasted 24 hours and 10 minutes straight on the "radio" mode (7:50 am Saturday - 8:00 am Sunday). I'm not sure how that would have worked via the Bluetooth streaming, but my phone would have probably died before it did. There is an app that you can download to control the volume, set the radio presets, and connect to music on your phone via Bluetooth. I will say that initially I thought that there was no way to control the volume on the speaker itself BUT thankfully after further inspection, I noticed that the power button actually rotates and controls the volume as well! Once I discovered that Ridgid had included this little detail in the design I was completely satisfied! Long story short, I'm so glad I don't have to keep "borrowing" my wife's Bluetooth speaker or worrying about it getting dusty. We have hers now staying inside and mine for in the shop and I'm way more confident that it is built to handle dust and lots of other woodshop conditions!
