Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Difference between the DC012 radio and the DC012-CL I called DeWalt about the difference between the DC012 radio and the DC012-CL. There is NO difference between the two radios except that on the California CEC compliant radio (DC012-CL), you cannot charge a battery and play the radio at the same time. (See follow up below, they may be the same radio). There is a switch that allows you to play the radio OR charge a battery, but not both. According to the California CEC, it is not an efficient use of power to do both at the same time. I would NOT advise you to buy the California CEC compliant model (DC012-CL) as it is a lot more expensive and has limited functionality. You could buy the DC012 (which is a great radio per the reviews and the reason I gave it 5 stars), pay at least $40.00 less and not use it as a charger while you are playing the radio, and be CEC compliant. Yours truly will be returning the DC012-CL radio he bought and get one of the non-charging DeWalt radios or see if I can figure a way to buy the DC012. A little follow up: I ordered a DC012 from another company and they shipped me a DC012-CL as labelled on the outside of the box. On the radio itself, it was labelled as DC012. (There was NO DC012-CL label on the radio). This happened to another reviewer too. You can charge a battery and play the radio at the same time. I have a strong feeling the DC012-CL and the DC012 are the same radio. I would not pay a higher price for the DC012-CL radio. Find the company that has the best price for the DC012 and order it. If you live in California, the box will likely be labelled as a DC012-CL but it will contain a DC012 radio. December 17, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Radio Been looking for a good work radio and this is it. I have both 14.4 and 18 volt batteries radio runs off both and charges both that a big plus. Radio has great sound and reception July 5, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 26, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by eh.... I have owned 2 of this exact model and 1 of the earlier model. Tuner dial goes bad on both so I now have to use the seek button which can be an issue in areas that have poor station signal. Speakers lose sound quality over the coarse of a few months. Reception isn't great. I think the manufacturer knows this because the antenna design has changed several times through the years. Will not purchase another one. And have stopped purchasing any dealt tools because quality has really gotten bad over the past few years. October 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Recommended I have always used dewalt tools. however this radio was a little disappointing. I have owned it for little over a year and the radio reception has gotten awful,also the power/volume control has a short in it. will not buy another March 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Radio I've read a lot of reviews of people having sound quality issues. Does this radio stand up to my klipsch entertainment system, of course not...its a job site radio. This thing is built tough. I love the 3 outlets on the side which help me out a lot because my garage has limited plug access. The battery charger is outstanding and charges batteries really quickly. Last feature I really like is the auxiliary plug so I can hook up my phone and stream pandora when wanted. The only thing I would like to see is some sort of protective compartment to keep dust debris from getting at my phone when hooked up to the radio, but at the end of the day that is small potatoes. Excellent radio with lots of extras for the price that I use on nearly a daily basis. June 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Radio My Wife bought me this radio for Christmas. Over the last year or so I have bought several DeWalt tools, including Hammer Drill, Impact Driver and Oscillating tool, all of which use the 20V Max Li-ion batteries, unfortunately my wife didn't realize this Radio/Charger doesn't charge them :-(. Having read reviews for the DeWalt DC015 (the Radio/Charger that DOES charge 20V) it seems that THIS Radio is actually the better sounding of the Two. I have a 14.4V DeWalt Hammerdrill lying around, and I'm using the batteries from that in this Radio so I can use it should I lose electrical power at Home or Jobsite/Campsite or wherever. I also bought the little DeWalt Bluetooth Adapter so I can play tracks from my phone via the Aux input, which is much better than having to leave my phone attached to the Radio. The phone can play/skip/pause tracks and control the volume remotely :-). This radio is very loud and keeps pretty good sound quality at loud volumes. Was recently taking down the Christmas lights around the exterior of my home and could clearly hear music playing on the radio in my garage around the other side of the house ! (Used my phone to turn it down before I annoyed the neighbors lol) January 12, 2015
