Don't think I've ever seen this so cheap. Came across it after seeing it on Amazon at £63 and I thought that was a good price. Has a water & dust-proof compartment with 3.5mm jack for holding your phone/MP3 player.

This is a bare unit (no battery) but does come with a mains adapter, so you can still use it even if you're not invested in the Milwaukee tools.

Generally about £25 for a 2ah, and about £25-£30 for the charger if you shop around (the radio doesn't charge the battery via the power supply). I probably wouldn't recommend getting this if you don't already have batteries and charger, unless you're happy to just run it off the mains. Actually I think on SGS's website they do a complete set (radio, battery, charger) for about £100.
Thought it said Maltesers on the front.
Nice review here

That's what you wanted it to say
Hmm considering it's £55 there seems to be a lot it doesn't include that you would normally expect as standard on consumer models (battery and charger). I don't know anything about these kinds of radios so maybe it's standard practice but still seems stingy on a basic radio that costs £50+...

Its a heavy duty robust unit designed to take on the extreme punishment its likely to see on a jobsite such as knocks, heavy dust/grit damp etc units then at the end of the day get lobbed in the back of a builders van with the rest of his/her tools and it will face this day in day out, yes the radio aspect specs are on a par with a much cheaper radio, its the build quality and robustness you are paying the extra for. The batteries and charger you may already have from tools say an older battery that is no longer up to use in a power tool but ok for this, same with dewalt and makita radios.

Yes as @harlzter says, they're built to stand up to the rigours of site work, which largely involves getting caked in dust and plaster and getting thrown with no care into the back of a van at the end of the day Normal radios just don't last five minutes sadly (been there, done that). You can get better specced site radios than this, but you pay more again for them.
