Is it brushless?

Answers

Thomas, thank you for your interest in the RIDGID 18-Volt Cordless Mini Bluetooth Radio with Radio App. Brushes are only used in tools that have motors. This radio does not have a motor so it isn't brushless so much as it would never be designed with brushes. That said we do have an extensive line of brushless tools and I welcome you to check them out here on homedepot.com. Thank you for asking, If you have further questions and would like to speak with a RIDGID Customer Experience Professional, please call, 1-866-539-1710 M-F from 9am-6pm EST. Hope this helps! - Vini

good small radio but need improvement.
First of the all, the whole package did not come as retail package. it is fine by me because i did not have to rip anything open. lol. the radio is light weight and easy to carry around. sound was mediocre. i think my cheap milwaukee radio (2590-20) sounds better. but for a single speaker, it does pretty good job. sound is still clear even at loudest volume. it comes with a short 3.5mm male/male cable to connect aux port. honestly, the cable is too short. for a radio that does not have compartment to store a phone, that cable is useless. the bluetooth connection is good. i played my music from youtube no problem. i did try the ridgid radio app briefly. it functions well. it gives me control of the radio while on bluetooth. it did crash once when i tried the announcement function in the app. but that function is useless. tried a few times and it doesnt work. i agreed with other review about the app. why does it need my location while connecting it? it doesnt make sense to me. charging port is slow. it can keep up with the music playing and bluetooth function but it is not fast enough. overall it is a good jobsite radio but there are some cons i want to see ridgid will implement for the next radio. - wish it comes with a power cable. - faster charging port. - an adapter or pocket that can attach to the battery for phone storage. - a handle to hang the radio.

Lies
Example, when you buy tools is fine but if you going to have problems with same than you have problems, thay said lifetime service but if you didn't register your tool waranti doesn't work. I bought kit tool for house and didn't use it maybe 15-20 times in 11 years and battery want charge, 2009 i start to register tool but didn't finish for some reason and thay can't do anything about it, I will check how much is 2 new batteries and how much Ridgid company will lose if they send free 2 new ones.

This is a great little radio and perfect for my garage! I love the fact that it is small and compact and can fit on my tool shelf. But don't let the small size fool you. It puts out a good amount of volume! The radio is just a bit wider than my 4ah battery I use with it and it puts out a nice clean sound. As a test, I let it run on the 4ah battery full charge and it lasted 24 hours and 10 minutes straight on the "radio" mode with low volume (7:50 am Saturday - 8:00 am Sunday). I'm not sure how that would have worked via the Bluetooth streaming or louder volume, but my phone would have probably died before it did. There is an app that you can download to control the volume, set the radio presets, and connect to music on your phone via Bluetooth. I will say that initially I thought that there was no way to control the volume on the speaker itself BUT thankfully after further inspection, I noticed that the power button actually rotates and controls the volume as well! Once I discovered that they had included this little detail in the design I was completely satisfied! Long story short, I'm so glad I don't have to keep "borrowing" my wife's Bluetooth speaker or worrying about this one getting dusty. We have hers staying inside and mine for in the shop and I'm way more confident that it is built to handle dust and lots of other shop conditions!

It’s better than the $39 one. It has better sound than the $39 one and it has Bluetooth, but it’s still slightly tin-ish sounding. I was hoping it was similarly sounding to the Milwaukee Bluetooth only speaker, but not quite. It’s also nearly twice the price of the $39 one. Is it worth the extra money? Probably not, but it is a little better

Great battery
I bought this to replace two completely dead batteries that I had. I charged this one and it went several days, with my limited use, before needing to be charged again. I would definitely buy another of these if my usage warrants it!
