If the radio is plugged into 110V AC does it charge an MP3 player?

Asked by: William
The radio will not charge an MP3 player. This radio has an auxiliary in port that you can plug in an MP3 player to play the music through the radio but it will not charge the unit.

Customer Reviews

18 Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Compact Jobsite Radio is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound for small radio i bought this for use around the shop and it works great. Great sound for a small radio and actually can go quite loud and still sound good! The only downfall is the audio cord they send for your mp3 player. It is way too short and quality is not very good but that is a cheap and easy fix

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small size but boombox sound. I bought this radio to accompany me in the yard as I find my Bosch 360 is just to heavy to be constantly moving about in the yard. My first impression was wow, this is even smaller then the 12v Bosch so it's going to be inferior. Wow wrongo. This little guy is awesome. It's simple in design and functions which I think is perfect!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this radio, its small enough to fit... I really like this radio, its small enough to fit in my bag for work. I bought this radio because I already had a Bosch drill that used the same battery. The battery life is about 10 hours for me. The sound is really good. I bought a dc adapter for the car and can plug in the ac cord from the radio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good radio I've had this radio for about 2 years. Good reception but wish it had Bluetooth. Also wish it had a storage compartment for the power cord like the 12v does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this radio Radio works on my 18v batteries - Sounds good - gets loud enough to hear it over my tile saw and other noisy stuff - I wish it had a AC cord built in that stowed inside the radio when not used and with no wall wart, but that's just wishing - Very happy with this radio. (By the way, although I'm happy with this product, but I have to mention that the one negative review I submitted (on a rechargeable light) was deleted by Bosch - so don't expect to see any negative reviews on this site - they don't allow them to get posted)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound for a small Radio. This compact Radio has features of bigger and more expensive radio's. The speakers are very clear and there's no distortion as you turn up the volume. I've listened to my Detroit Tigers games for over 2 weeks on a single battery charge. Love this radio!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, compact radio I wanted a small, compact, light weight radio to listen to while working in my garage. The radio's sound is very clear, whether listening to it in low or high volume. It is a nice looking radio. I like that it doesn't have a slew of buttons to try and figure out how to use. I love the large mute button in case the phone rings. I haven't bought the power pack yet because I am currently using it near an accessible 110v plug. It was extremely easy to plug my CD player into this radio as well. I really like this small but powerful radio!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful radio The audio is very clear and the volume far exceeds anything I will need. The radio is for my garage or when I am working outside. A great selection of clear channels are now available to me and I like having presets.
