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 67 reviewers.
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 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by good purchase Did not know you had to purchase a battery for 74.00 December 15, 2015
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
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great radio! but why not battery charging capability keep innovating, really like what your doing. Would really like to see a slim down/lightweight pull over of your heated apparel line to be worn by rescue, snowsport, through hiking enthusiasts alike. I have alot of solar recharge gear that could be useful to integrate with simple adapter. imagine mountain climbing or hiking and with a small solar panel on a pack or arm band heating your vital core areas with an under armour(esque) shirt fitted with heating bands or piping. Thank you have a good day April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong little Overachiever I got this little guy as part of my first m12 combo kit with a drill driver over 5 years ago. I needed the driver more so, but I was also looking for some type of rechargeable radio for the boat and beach trips do to the cost of D cell disposables. I also want to say it's when the new M series came out and Milwaukee may have thrown it in for free at the time. Any one that lives in a saltwater environment knows how hard the elements are on every thing, much less any thing electrical. This thing has been soaked with saltwater from being laid down in the bottom of my bay boat many times....if fact one time I actually felt bad when it so so sprayed by a wave coming into the boat and it was dripping salt water....I pulled out the battery and it was all wet in there. I just knew that battery was fried. When I got back home I wiped off the radio and let the battery and the radio air dry for a couple of days, stuck the battery back in and both worked. That battery has rust on the terminals to this day and still holds a full charge after 5+ years of hard use. It's been covered by blowing sand many times at the beach, then just knocked up against something and put up. This radio has been on the jobsite many times, been left out in the rain over night...it just keeps on going. The wall cord could be better, but at least it has one. To the people asking for Blue tooth this, and more of that.....you've got to realize, this thing came out like 5 or 6 years ago. BT wasn't on every thing at that time and if it was it was going to cost you a few hundred more dollars and certainly wouldn't be as durable as this little guy is! It has great reception especially for a small antenna, all of my features still work....I took a couple of pics to show the condition it's in today. I just finally pulled out the air gun and blew the sand out of it, also put a couple of drops of oil on the latch lever. Now it's good to go and still kickin' like David Lee Roth in '84.... May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great radio I have had this radio for about three years. It has never failed for me. I use it on the jobsite, in the garage, on the patio, basically wherever I have been the past three years it has been there too. I even leave it on for days (plugged in) in a row in the garage. Easy to transport, it fits right in my small hand tool bag. Great radio! Now I am saving up for the new M18 charging radio so that I can leave my little guy in the garage. Thanks Milwaukee!
