Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good as charger, not for a boombox I was looking for a durable, portable radio and since I am fully invested in Dewalt 18V ni-cad, with plans to eventually go to Lithium-ion, I thought this would kill two birds with one stone. Took it home, it charged batteries fine, but the sound from the speakers is awful. The bass boost makes it even worse. If you are going to pay premium price for a product, you would think they would use premium parts, not so here. Overall, it has a cheap feel to it. The speakers are loud, on battery and plugged in, but a very muddled sound with no separation of highs and lows. Worse than my first boombox 20 years ago. Also, if you use an mp3 player (or phone as I do) for music, there's no compartment to protect it. I returned the Dewalt radio and bought the Milwaukee 2790-20 jobsite radio. It far exceeds the Dewalt in all aspects, except that it does not charge batteries. I did buy M12 impact kit for the batteries, so I spent more in the long run, but am extremely pleased (plus that impact is awesome). If you are looking for a good sounding, durable, highly portable radio, get the Milwaukee, you won't be dissapointed, like I was with this Dewalt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what he wanted! I ordered this as a Christmas present for my husband. He loved the radio/charger. It had more features than he had expected. He works in new home construction. Sometimes power sources are hard to find. This gives him the ability to listen to the radio while charging his batteries. Also his favorite feature is being able to plug other tools into his radio. Overall more than he expected!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Sound Bought this because all of my tools are Dewalt and love to listen to the radio while I work. I was truly disappointed by the poor sound. As someone put it, "sounds like the music is playing underwater", not clear at all. Very surprised Dewalt would put out a product like this as i've always found their power tools to be well built?? The charging capibility is great, the extra plugs is a good idea although i'm not sure i would ever use them. I wanted this for some time and even considered changing out the speakers myself but at the end of the day, the extra costs just didn't make sense since this radio is $150 as is. I will be taking it back and possibly getting the Milwaakee as the reviews were good on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I liked it so much I bought 2! I bought 1 for work mainly for the built in charger and the radio is great. I plugged in the DeWalt and it sounded much better than the Sony boombox I was listening to, and that was that. The extra power outlets came in handy and eliminated the extension cords on my toolbox. I bought a second one for my home shop. When you get DeWalt, you get quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well.. I won't return it. It reminds me of a boombox I had in 1986. The sound quality does stink. I'm not an audiophile. I don't really care. But, yeah, it does. The reception comes and goes if you move the unit. But it plays music. It hooks up to my phone. It charges my batteries. It runs off my batteries. It gives me a few extra outlets. It looks pretty durable. And there aren't many other radios out there that can do all that. It's a horrible value, but it's a convenience. You don't have to bring a charger and different types of batteries. I'm a pro, so I just need stuff to work. And the fewer trips back to the truck, the better.
