Three stars because the USB connection to cigarette lighter for power is useless. I could not get a firm connection at all. The cable is also far too short.
However, 2 batteries installed and it is a gem. Perfectly clear reception. Battery life seems fine. Easy to use. Memory functions work fine.
Headphone cable to connect to MP3 player is very short, as can be seen in the picture, but this is not a problem for me.
For the price, this is a fine deal compared to alternatives.
