Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mtao BETTER THAN JUST A JOBSITE RADIO!
I cant say enough good things about the 18v Milwaukee tool line up. I already had the Milwaukee 18v tools but I still shopped around at different brand Jobsite radios cause Im particular about music and if im gonna spend money on a radio it better sound good. Some other brands show thier radio falling down steps or getting beat with baseball bats and thats all good to have a durable radio but it still has to sound good. some had no bass at all or too much. This radio/charger is really refined. it has nice controls like equipment should have, great display, Bluetooth, aux port, and usb. You can hook anything that plays music up to this thing. The sound is great, loud and undistorted, dial up or down the bass/treble to you liking, it can take it. It sound the same running on 120v as it does on 18v. As sson as you plug it in it switches to charge mode and charges the battery. The usb port in the protected compartment also charges devices while on 120v and 18v. When on battery the radio will last 8+ hours at moderate volume. I use 4.0 and 5.0xc batteries. The radio is a beast, it is very heavy and probly would not survive rolling down the stairs again and again but you get a much better radio and i can only assume its weigh attributes to the good speakers inside with proper size magnets for the drivers. In the audio world, heavier is better when it comes to speakers.
As far as uses goes, It come with me to work on the job site and at home in the garage. in the truck to picnics and outdoor event. It always something friends ask me to bring with. when its not doing all that its at home on my workbench playing mucis to my ears.
long story short, if your in the market.......GET IT!!

First of all,I have been acquiring fuel tools for the last 6 mths.I have almost all of them.Still waiting for the finish nailer due in may.This is about the last m-18 tool I will need to purchase.I love them all.I don't know if anybody out there agrees with me about the jobsite radio should be considered a tool or not.The radio seems to work ok,but I think millwaukee should extend the warranty to 5 yrs. like all there tools.In my honest opinion,1 yr tells me that the radio will not hold up to there heavy duty standards as there tools do.That has me concerned about the quality in the electronics.I have had the radio for approx. 1 month and am pleased so far.But I do not use it every day.It sounds good,not great.I do like the added features the previous models did not have.Lets just say for the price I paid(which I cant mention)I am satisfied.All in all it does what it is supposed to do.I do think millwaukee should back up there radios with a decent tool like warranty.4 words "only time will tell"

Just purchased this radio yesterday morning and right out of the box the Bluetooth didn't work! I'm a milwaukee fan but this has to be their most overpriced piece of junk I have ever purchased. The sound is average as far as the radio goes. I took it back and ordered the small version of the heavy duty jobsite radio (M18 jobsite radio). I have the heavy duty jobsite radio as well sounds great never failed. It's just too heavy to be hauling up and down the stairs so i was looking for somethings smaller and was interested in the Bluetooth. Listen to the reviews the Bluetooth is a piece of junk!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chris Puts out a lot of sound
Was a little hesitant at first but the radio works great. Volume ramps VERY quickly with the knob, and Bluetooth is strong. Doesn't drain my battery quickly at all. Feels solid and phone charging usb is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stewy Great sound quality and durable
This Milwaukee radio/charger has Great sound quality and is very stable, it won't get knocked over on the jobsite. It has Bluetooth for all your wireless music streaming. It has a 2.1 USB jack for all your wireless device charging needs. The large display is great for seeing what time it is. It also has a bottle opener on the side. It charges dead M18 batteries in less then 45 minutes. This radio/charger rocks.
