Usually hovers around the £60 mark, if you're in the market for a branded radio that runs off of batteries/solar then looks good.

Definitely not the loudest and reviews says its bass heavy but there is an aux out which means you could plug in other speakers to make it sound better.

I've had the this radio for over a year and can't fault it the solar side needs direct sunlight to work. take both type of batteries just have to flick a switch so not to charge normal ones.
Had to do a reset on it once but other than that it travels round with me.

good find op, heat added

I had their first solar,dab,it was rubbish,had to be in direct sunlight and i think in egypt!Never ever worked over here unless it was hot enough to fry an egg,mIght be different now like

Old everywhere near me.

Forget the solar panel. It's useless unless in direct sunlight.

I have this for work as a painter and decorator it's the best radio IV ever had for work.
it has a good charge port

Its a good deal for £45.... heated.

Excellent price and brand, but keep in mind this only supports the antiquated codec which predates even MP3. It will eventually be a useless radio after everyone has switched to DAB+ which most of Europe has already settled on.

The radio does support the DAB+ codec, unlike the BBC which doesn't.

It's solar...... It's not designed for the reasons of hosting a Rave.

That's probably a real watt, not a Chinese watt. And RMS means it's measured for continuous sine wave sound, not the maximum output it can reach for a microsecond, as many other amplifiers are rated. I have a old 20w NAIM amplifier which goes way, way louder than many "100w" systems.

Not on the Argos site now

What is this 'antiquated codec' you speak of???? FM will be around for a while yet!

Can't fault Roberts for built and sound quality, had the 83i for years and was after a cheaper portable so this will do nicely.
