1) If you are running off mains then the display will stay illuminated but if running on the battery then the display illumination will switch off after a few seconds 2) The volume dial is on the side and yes it does go down really low

Is has an internal CHARGER not internal batteries. If you buy good quality NiMH rechargabke batteries then you'll get a better charge. Hope this helps. It doesn't come with batteries so you'll need to buy these separately
