Fantastic DAB reception (unlike my Alba DAB) - even works in the car!

Power options;
1) Mains powered
2) 3 normal AA batteries
3) 3 rechargeable AA (2400mah supplied) which are charged from small mains charger (supplied) or sunlight via Solar Panel.

Bought this as a gift for a family member and it is fantastic. Reception in hospital is really quite good, where other radios we have tried have been very poor. It is also extremely portable and has a very clear and full sound (amazing for its size).

Compact with soft-touch rubberised rotary controls, the unique ROBERTS … Compact with soft-touch rubberised rotary controls, the unique ROBERTS SolarDAB 2 uses the sun as a power socket, letting you enjoy crystal clear digital radio wherever you are. Its integral solar panel provides continuous play under adequate sunlight, while topping up a rechargeable battery which kicks in when the sun goes down or things get gloomy. Reassuringly, a mains adaptor is also provided for when the sun really doesn’t want to come out and play! The 2-line green backlit LCD display is easy to read and features function icons for indicating the solar level, battery and signal strength. There’s even one-touch access to your favourite stations. A 3.5mm line input means you can plug in your iPod or MP3 player – ideal for sharing your favourite tracks with friends (cable not included). ROBERTS have been making radios since 1932 when Harry Roberts founded the company. They are renowned for the quality craftsmanship and today hold three Royal Warrants.Key FeaturesBattery lifeHow long the battery lasts for until it needs recharging Up to 20 hours from alkaline batteries Brand ROBERTS Dimensions H14 x W20.2 x D7cm Finish Black Guarantee FREE 2 year guarantee, extend to 3 years £20Model name / number SolarDAB 2 Power supply Mains, 4x AA batteries (not included) Radio tuner DAB, FM W eight 623g

Seems a good buy, if you like portable radios that can be powered by batteries. Buy unfortunately, I need an alarm which this does not seem to have ...

Just found this and annoyed I missed it, as its £79.95 now.

Anyone seen these instore recently?
