5.0 out of 5 stars A nice AM/FM water resistant radio!, 5 April 2014
By 
This review is from: Ivation Battery-Powered Splashproof AM/FM Radio with Hanging Strap (Blue) - Great for Shower, Jogging, Hiking, Camping etc. (Electronics)
Length:: 3:58 Mins

This is a cute AM/FM radio that is water resistant. You can use it in the shower, outdoors, camping to listen to the news, weather or music. The antenna for the radio is ingeniously inside of the carrying strap. The unit operates on two AA batteries and I used rechargeable eneloop batteries in mine. The radio's reception was good and the sound quality was fair. It is a simple and easy to use radio and it reminded me of my childhood days when we all had a transistor radio we used. I like that this one is water resistant. Just remember that it is rated to IPx4 which means splash proof and not submersible. That means they spray it with 10 liters of water per minute for 5 minutes.

The controls are simple and old fashioned just like the old radios I used to own. You twist the knob and tune the station. The center dial is the on/off switch and the volume switch. It is my only issue in that it has a small dip in a smooth plastic dial and my slick skin made it hard to turn. If it was wet it would have been worse to control the volume. The tuning for me was a little better because of the extended knob coming out of the dial.

I liked the size of the radio and it makes a nice portable radio for going camping, hiking or any outdoor purpose. It is always nice to have a radio around for emergencies and bad weather. I liked this radio and I thought it was priced properly. I rated it as a 5 star item.

I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation and I promised to provide a fair and honest review.
