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.

18 Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Compact Jobsite Radio with Batteries is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
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 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.

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 4 out of 5 by from Solid Solid SOLID First impressions: this thing is solid. It felt like I could throw it against a brick wall or toss it in sand and have absolutely no issues. This radio is also very compact and sounds really good for how small it is! The handles on this thing make it extremely easy to grip and toss around the job sight, and reception with the antenna is better than expected. It is also rubber and not a metal antenna so I'm not worried about it bending too bad or breaking. There is an aux input in the back and it also came with a cable. You can run it off of batteries or if you have several bosch tools that require 18v batteries, this will work PERFECTLY for you. And one battery will last you a few hours on full volume. I would recommend this radio just for its durability!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome radio Excellent sound for such a small unit. Long battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of sound from a lightwieght box..... One of the hardest parts about construction is weight, Everything is big, bulky and heavy, Anytime I can cut weight out of my tool load I'm happy to do it. This radio is compact, lightweight but has tons of sound. Plenty loud to be heard on a jobsite over the other sounds of saws and drills, hammers, nailers, etc. The sound quality is also great, sounds just as good if not better than my home stereo unit, Its amazing that so much sound can come out of such a small lightweight box. It has a jack for my phone so I can put on an internet radio station and listen to music for hours on end. I bought a velcro strap for it so I can hang it up just about anywhere. Also runs on 110Volt or 18 volt tool batteries. It will run on a tool battery for almost 4 full days. It's a quality product made by a quality company known for their tools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Job Site radio I ever owned Very nice job site radio, not big and bulky. Powerful speakers, love the EQ button…….great Bass. Also the AUX is a plus for my MP3 player. It also has an pivoting antenna I could easily get the station to come in without static. High impact case seem to be very strong. …… thing I wish it would have came with the 18V battery…….but all in all this is the best job radio I ever owned.
