Rated 5 out of 5 by from WooooHooooo it has a charger!! 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 This charger has a radio! There is no need to pack and carry a charger to your worksite now. The internal batteries store your radio pre sets even when your 18V battery is removed. All cords store neatly out of the for transport. This tool provides some worksite enjoyment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This radio rocks! This radio rocks! It has great sound clarity, volume and projection. It is very easy to use with the large intuitive buttons. I like how the aux input jack and wire store nicely in a protective shock resistant pocket. There's even room for an MP3 player in there! I really like the versatility of being able to play the radio with a battery or with AC power. The fact that it has a built in 18v battery charger is a plus too. I think one thing that I was most impressed with though is the Bluetooth's range! I have walked between different shops that are separated by CMU walls and was over 100' away and the music kept playing!

Will this charge batteries while it's plugged in?

Asked by: Trobzx6r

What kind of run time does the radio have on battery?

Asked by: MechanicGuy

Does the radio have a built in charger? Is it stereo? Without these two features it's just taking up space.
