Great Little Radio
Was skeptic at first after reading some reviews about poor reception. I think it works just great. However I did notice slight interference on certain stations when it's plugged in, but nothing major. Love the cordless feature, 8+hrs of runtime on my 3.0Ah battery. Wish it had 3 power outlets like the previous DeWalt 18v radio. But on the upside it is more compact and charges both 20v and 18v batteries. As some have stated the aux input storage compartment could have a little more space, but no big deal. Quality is great. Would definitely purchase again

I would buy another one if I had too.
I use it around the ranch. It's very useful because of the duel plugs when I'm cutting wood out on the ranch I use my electric sharpener to sharpen the chain saw chains and the USB and MP3 jack to charge your phones or listen to music my boy loves it he has endless power for all his electronics.

After what seems liked years finally a 12/20 volt radio
Although a great sounding radio that charges my 12/20 volt batteries. And after waiting years for the arrival and buying it on the first day. I have to say, I was hoping for a lot more for the near 200 buck spent. The phone/MP3 compartment is really small and will only fit outdated and obsolete phones, no thought was put into anything larger than an iPhone 4. If you own a Samsung Galaxy size phone you can shoehorn it in the compartment (without a phone case) but never hope to plug it into the headphone port. So useless. Also with a little forethought the door should of been some what water proof, not gasketed. I know that I was not the only diehard Dewalt fanatic anxiously waiting for this item, and I'm sure it will be as tough as the last couple of radio's dewalt put forward. But I kinda feel after waiting 2 years that it was a little rushed in design.

I will update this review down the road after I've used it for a bit
Did I say it sounded Great.

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.
