Worked Well Until it Didn't
I bought this radio for entertainment while working with my numerous Dewalt tools. It worked well until this winter when the radio would not turn on. It would work with a charged battery in place, but not on 110VAC. Still have warranty on it and will contact Dewalt to see what it will take to repair it. Unfortunately, the nearest Dewalt service center is 60 miles away.

Not Durable
Not recommended
Worked for about 15 months, using it at home a few week ends a year while working in my home shop, then quit working when plugged in, would only turn on when powered by a battery. Contacted DeWALT, was out of warranty, still asked to ship it (free of charge, thank you) to a service center. They looked at it, told me it was out of warranty and they could not fix it for free. They did not do estimate, but thought it was the PCB assembly. They would have charged almost as much as I paid for the new radio itself. I looked up online, spare PCB assembly was as expensive or more expensive than a brand new radio... I disassembled it, it is poorly made, there is no fuse inside, all the electronic components are enclosed within EMI shielding, pain in the neck to unsolder, and no way to fix it really. I guess my point is that this radio is junk and is unfixable unless you are extremely advanced in electronics repair. I like DeWALT and would buy their power tools again, but I would steer away from their radios. Buy a boom box at the dollar store, it will serve you better for a fraction of the cost.

Horrible radio
I’ve bought all of Dewalts radios and was excited to find this with built-in Bluetooth. The design is poorly thought out and you cannot control the audio volume via your phone when connected. You must physically turn the knob on the radio itself. This makes it useless for my use. You should have to return to the radio every time you need to adjust the volume. Ugh.

Boom box for relaxing and craft shows
I know i am not using it at a job site but my dad has some dewalt tools and for Christmas he got me the radio because I was having issues keeping my Bluetooth speakers and portable chargers charged so i asked for Christmas for this radio because i love how i can listen to my music on my phone or radio and cahrge my devices if we don’t have outlets for charging or if we don’t have power in the house because of weather. The only thing I’m bummed about is that I cannot charge off the ac outlets too if i am on battery. I also wish there was multiple usb outlets so i can charge my devices on battery. Overall everything is great and has great sound. I plan on using it at craft fairs to have background music and a place to charge my check out stuff.

Best radio!
We’ve been using this radio on jobs for about 6 months now. Has never given us any problems. We listen to it everyday. It’s rugged, gotten wet, been in mud, basically everywhere around the job site. It’s awesome being able to throw a battery on it to charge or even run it cordless. The bonus outlets are always in use as well. This is such a great product and work everyday wouldn’t be the same without it.

Amazing sound quality!
We recently acquired one for my husband’s workshop. And he loves it put there. But when our speaker system blew for our projector inside we divided to get another one for that. Hooked it up and our movie experience immediately got waaay better! The base that comes through really makes a difference. We love this Radio!

Decent sound but missing key features
The sound is decent for a work site radio, the bluetooth range is not awesome, but if you have a clear unobstructed path of 50 feet it will reach. If I were to buy a different one it would be the T stack one

  • 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.
