ChargePAK? ready as standard, ONE also offers class-leading battery life, with around 35 hours of DAB listening from six standard C size batteries. In addition to DAB usability, station choice and sound quality, ONE also features FM with RDS for areas where DAB is currently unavailable. Not to mention a host of other features including Intellitext®, textSCAN?, kitchen and sleep timers, a backlit display and USB upgradeability. All the benefits of DAB More station choice, station selection by name, scrolling text display, easy autotune, and crisp, clear sound. Portability Around 20 hours of portable DAB listening from the optional, rechargeable ChargePAK-C6X?; around 35 hours from six C size batteries; or connect to the mains for home listening. Ease of Use & Style We?ve used our expertise as world leaders in DAB to produce a radio that not only sounds great but is intuitive and easy to use toox EQ settings. Display shows volume level, battery life, time, signal strength, EQ setting and favourite station mode.

good little radio there
shame the rechargeable battery packs cost about as much again

Excellent radio, have it in white and is great for the kitchen. nice sound for its size.
these have been around 50 quid for at least 2 years so a very good price indeed!

yeh we have it, paid a lot more than this when it came out. Is good though

It looks like the successor has to this device has just been launched, the "Pure One Elite", so I guess the existing "Pure One" will all be on special offer now.

Good deal. My dad got one of these last year, a white refurb for £30 and as mentioned earlier it's really good as a kitchen radio. We have problems with MW on analouge so bought one of these and the reception is brilliant. There's so much more choice with DAB - it's the future!

Voted HOT

Mono? tuh....

does anyone know if you can put normal non rechargable batteries into this?

p.s do you know how long this will be on promotion?

had one of these for six months and it was worth every penny...black is best

Yes you can (see reviews on Amazon site) :roll:

OK so explain how you're going to get stereo sound out of a radio with only one speaker then?

Btw. The earphone output supports stereo though.

Hot Deal - I've had one of these for a while and think it's great.
Shame about the cost of the ChargePak's though.

wasnt there a deal a while back when these were £19.99?

Fantastic radio & a cracking price HOT from me.

Eh? Well you can't, obviously, which was my point.

I can't believe so many people have jumped on the DAB bandwagon by buying mono units. Surely a step backwards from FM? Ok, a step up from crackly mono MW, but a huge proportion of the user base is for Classic FM listening or similar.

I wonder if HD tv had been released in black and white, whether there would have been such good take up! ;-)

And don't get me started on the Ipod masses putting up with very inferior sound quality in favour of beautiful design...

My MONO unit sits in my office at home and the sound is fine....its not Bowers and Wilkins but it serves a purpose. In my case it tells me what tracks and celebrities im listening to, which to me is the best aspect of DAB.

And while I agree on the 'Form over Function' just remember that one mans meat is another mans poison

yeah, it says in the battery compartment C 1.5V so yes

Fantastic unit, I have had one since December last year, I listen to it for 30 minutes each weekday morning and have only changed the batteries once! I dont think the chargepak is worth it tbh

I got one of these in pink for Christmas and love it (though I loved it more before my two favorite stations stopped broadcasting; now I don't listen as much). It was about 38 or 40 pounds then. The sound is exceptional and not what you would expect from one speaker. I have used it with regular batteries and never had to change them yet -- but that's because I rarely run it on batteries. Most of the time it's plugged in. If you want to mainly run it on batteries and plan to use it a lot, keep in mind that you might want to figure into the cost of owning this buying lots of batteries or a rechargeable thing Pure sells. Check out the reviews on Amazon for an idea if it will suit your needs.

But that's ignoring the point - why should you settle for mono off a stereo signal? I'm sure it's a crystal clear signal, and it's handy to read the info on what you're listening to, but why is the norm to have mono, and stereo is a luxury? They make stereo units of course, but they're so much more expensive. It's not as though we are talking cheap units here - Pure charge a lot, best they may be but they load a hefty premium onto their products.

It's all a question of marketing. They knew they would shift 1000s of units regardless, just because it was the latest thing. There is no reason to not offer stereo, we're not honestly believing that it would be expensive to add a second speaker to many of the range, right? (unless you buy their add on one of course...) Call me a cynic...

They're not the only manufacturer guilty of this of course.

That aside, this particular one is a portable model so it's half excusable, and for this price well worth it. It just triggered a rant!

In which case you want to look at the new model, the "Pure One Elite" as this does have stereo speaker. Pity the RRP of this is £69.99, £20 more than the RRP for the "Pure One".

Hopefully the "Pure One Elite" will drop in price below the £50 mark, but that might be a good few months yet...
