                    stopped working less than 90 days
                    Always a ridgid fan but what happened here? Returning tomorrow since its still in a 90 day return period. Led screen went out 10 days in. Working in the sun must have killed it. The next week it stopped working. No power from AC or battery pack. Fuse was still good too. Thankfully it went out less than 90 days or this thing would get a 1 star review.

                        For some reason the screen display does not show up. Have no idea what may be causing it. I’ve tried everything. Other than that. I’m happy with my purchase.

                              This radio has no mid-range control and the treble and bass controls aren’t much to speak of either. Also this radio could use more volume also. My opinion is shop around and insist on a demonstration be making your purchase!

                                    When you put the volume up it starts to sound distorted. My old JBL flip4 sounds better. Returned

                                          Junk
                                          I bought this about 6 months ago. Within a week the display stopped working so the only way to see what station the radio was on is through the phone app. The Bluetooth range is horrible. Maybe 30 feet with no obstructions. If there is anything between your phone and the radio it’s more like 10 or 15 feet. Then, randomly, even when plugged in, the unit will just turn off. This thing is just total garbage. Don’t waste your money.

                                            NOT WEATHER RESISTANT
                                            Within the first week of owning it, the radio got a light sprinkle on it and the LCD screen broke. I can see nothing, so its hard to operate. Also, the bluetooth goes in and out. Very frustrating.

                                              Sound is awful
                                              I got this radio for Christmas to take to my jobsite as I was excited that it paired for my Bluetooth music as I consistently work in areas where there are no radio stations. Even at full volume with the volume up full on my phone you can barely hear this radio if you walk into another room. Once and awhile the Bluetooth drops out and takes forever to reconnect. Nice features terrible sound.

                                                I love the little radio
                                                Radio has been perfect for me for about a year and a half now the only issue I've ever had is Bluetooth doesn't work that well if you're on battery if you're plugged in works perfectly fine I would recommend it

                                                  Not loud at all, does not work well on job site
                                                  This is a nice radio and seems rugged. I really wanted to like it because I have lots of Ridged tools and it is compatible with my batteries. The main issue is that is does not turn up load enough. You can hear it OK in a closed off room, but no a job site it is useless. The Ridged app did not work, but I was not really bothered by this because I could easily get it to work via Bluetooth. If Ridged ever creates a version of this I can actually hear I would be in line to purchase the product. I would not recommend this unless you are listening in a quite place.
