5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 3 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pure Accessory - Charge PAK C6L Rechargeable Battery Pack for Pure (Accessory)
This is the updated version of the Pure battery pack, first available at the start of December 2007. I am using it with a Pure One radio.
It is a package the same size as 6 C type batteries, with a short cable and connector at one end. You plug the connector into a mating connector inside the battery space at the back of the radio, then fit the battery pack into the battery space. This is easy to do. Once fitted, the radio operates with or without mains power being connected. Whenever power is connected, the battery pack charges up and the radio operates from mains power.
The instructions recommend a 24 hour charge initially, which I did though the indicator suggested it was fully charged long before that.
In use I found it lasted for about 20 hours before the radio died. The indicator sits at 4 bars for most of this time then drops off quickly. From the drained state it took about 10 hours to charge again. However, I find it easier to keep the charger at my bedside and plug the radio in each night, so it does not normally fully discharge. This way, it is fully charged by morning and can be used anywhere in the house during the day for as long as needed, without running out of power.

Many thanks for the usage figures. I guess that it depends on volume and strength and whether you're on FM/DAB/SD but your usage in relation to their figures should indicate something in the region of 20-40 hours. Much better than what I've got with hi-power alkalines or even good quality AAs in adaptors (gave me about 2 hours). Chargepak, here I come.

Be very careful, this sounds like a review for the C6L NOT the A1 but it comes up under the A1. From what I can see they are very different and I don't think the A1 will fit the Pure One.

can someone please tell me how you know what voltage your radio is as i have a pure one radio but do not know if it is 12v or 9v . so don't know what power connector to get

In reply to an earlier post on 28 Feb 2013 17:31:08 GMT
Mine is 12vDC. Look at where the external lead would plug in to the back of the radio and it should say there what the input is.

Just to confirm, the C6L referenced here, fits my Evoke 3 nicely and gives about 10 hours of DAB at volume 10-12 (about a third of maximum volume, I think). Takes at least as long to charge again, but that's with occasional use whilst charging. Highly recommended.
