Answer: 
Perhaps at full volume, and with the 1.5ah battery. A larger-capacity battery and running at less than full volume will both increase runtime.

Answer: 
Two and a half hours is far more than you will get from a traditional radio. I get closer to four hours out of mine. They make a larger 12v battery which may help you (I don't have). As with all tools get one more battery than you think you will need, and cycle them. Two suits a wekkend warrior, 3 to 5 suits the general contractor for years of performance.

Answer: 
Runtime will depend on volume level and battery type.
At half volume with a compact M12 lithium-ion battery, the 2590 will run for 5 hours. WIth an M12 XC (extended life) lithium-ion battery, the 2590's runtime will double to 10 hours.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 69 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Nice radio. I thought it would fit in my tool box and went with the 12v for that reason. I wish I would have gone with the 18v but the 12v is a great radio and has great reception. August 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lasted 2 years Loved it for the time I had it. Warranty good for one year. Wasn't rough with this radio at all so was shocked it didn't last longer. Will just get a regular radio ... cheaper and lasts about the same. July 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Milwaukee great sound Plug a battery right in and found my favorite station and went straight to work July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Radio!! I have had one of these for about five years. I have put it through the gamut for sure. I work as an electrician and take it everywhere with me. I love being able to have spare batteries on hand for all the tools that use the M12 series. The radio is just the cream that rises to the top. Ver yloud for it's size. With the MP3 player area on the front it works great!! No worries about losing a bluetooth connection if I have to walk to another room. Don't have to worry about maiking the time to connect with a bluetooth setting. It just works. Simple. PERFECT!! December 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by milwaukee m12 jobsite radio I like the Milwaukee m12 job site radio had good sound has descent reception compact seems well built compared to others this size seems like a good value although one in store were closed out for 50.00 ;{ January 26, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boyfriend Loves It! Got this for my boyfriend not knowing if it was the right one. Apparently, it was perfect! He loves it and uses it on a daily basis. January 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M12 Job-Site Radio My husband loves this radio. It is small enough to carry around, fairly drop resistant, has a good sound and is easy to program favorite channels. December 9, 2015
