Customer Questions & Answers

does the radio charge batteries

i just purchased an m-12 milwaukee radio and am now hearing about short run 2.5 hours of run time all you get from a full charge?

Asked by: Anonymous
My experience has been with the 2.0, 4.0 and 6.0 batteries. They have lasted from a couple to several full workdays from a full charge. The run time is also dependent on factors such as volume setting, tone settings and type of sound being reproduced by the speakers. If someone plays bass-heavy music at full-blast, they will likely get less run-time than a person who plays harp music at lower volumes. Your battery life will vary accordingly. (If you use the adapter, it will play 24-7 for as long as you leave it on).

Customer Reviews

M12 Job-Site Radio is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best, Toughest Radio This is the best outdoor radio I have ever owned. I takes a lot of abuse - drops, rain, etc. Sound quality and battery life is excellent. If you have an iPhone 6 or later, it will not fit in the weather protected compartment. If you just want to listen to radio - this is the best (relatively) compact, durable radio on the market!!!

In more open work spaces, it has its limits. As a near-field table-top radio, the volume and tone (bass & treble) are more than sufficient. I deducted a star for less than stellar treble response despite maxing-out the treble setting. The radio reception is very strong and tends to hold even distant or otherwise weak stations. Just a little aiming of the short antenna and positioning of the radio itself holds those stations. The battery life is excellent. Even the compact 2.0 battery lasts more than a few work days (at around half volume or lower). The 4.0 or 6.0 batteries help to stabilize the base by adding weight to the bottom and a ledge beneath the back of the unit which prevents it from tipping backwards. With either of the XC batteries, expect several long days of use with one charge--even at moderately high [LOUD] volume. If you plug it in with the included AC adapter, unlimited listening awaits.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It did not. It was shipped and it did not... It did not. It was shipped and it did not work upon arrival. The buttons did not work, could not do anything with it. Brought it to my local Home Depot in Quincy, MA and all I could do was exchange it for a bigger radio that takes the M18 battery. Was very upset.
