    Roberts Solar Powered Digital Radio

    This stylish and compact DAB/FM portable radio has a solar panel integrated into the top of the unit which absorbs direct sunlight in order to power the radio. There is an LED solar and battery indicator and under good conditions, there is sufficient power generated to charge the batteries and power the radio. SolarDAB 2 enables you to use your normal AA batteries or rechargeable AA batteries. The radio will charge your rechargeable batteries with a flick of a switch. Once fully charged, the low power consumption of solarDAB allows the batteries to power the radio for up to 20 hours without the need to recharge them. The radio can then be used away from sunlight or mains electricity until recharging becomes necessary. The batteries can be recharged either by sunlight or using the supplied mains adaptor if there is not sufficient light available.

    This radio was bought as a present for me, I loved it so much that when my father's old radio broke I bought him this one. The sound is of good quality; the buttons, for my father who has parkinsons, are simple to use. As the radio can be used without having to be plugged into the wall socket, it is great to have that freedom to listen to it in the greenhouse, bathroom or wherever we are in the mood to pick it up and place it, without the hassle of wires. It is quite exciting watching it being charged up by sunlight, but when there is little sunlight and it needs charging by the wall socket, it does not take long to recharge.

    Im giving this radio 5 stars based only on my early impression of it, its of good construction and has a surprisingly good tone, let me comment at this point on some of the faults others have mentioned, some have said the batteries would not hold a charge, so when mine arrived i fitted it with my own 3200ah AAs, its been running on these for a few hours so far ok, i have put the ones that came with it into my charger, and will test them later. The aerial, it has been reported its prone to breakage, on examining it I can see why it may be a problem if used in a heavy handed manner as it is thin on the top and has a thick base with a swivel, pulling up from the tip is in my mind not recommended. It has a unique system call the dynamic range control or DRC, that make quieter sounds easier to hear in a noisy environment.its the first time i have seen this. So far im impressed, but only time will tell on durability. it looks great in White.

    UPDATE: Having bought this unit in June and fitted the full recharged batteries I have just (1st December) had to recharge them on the USB lead.

    So thats 6 months use on just one charge. Pretty impressive!

    I bought this for use in the bathroom and it is working extremely well.

    I bought a good set of rechargeable batteries (Duracell) and gave them the initial charge.

    Since then the radio has been charging itself through the solar panel as the radio sits on the window ledge and gets the PM sun.

    No problems with reception, the full range of stations being available, and the unit has not suffered from being in a steamy room.

    All told very pleased as my previous bathroom DAB radio used 6 x C batteries (no power outlet in there) which had to be replaced every six weeks so this unit is a money saver as well.

    This is a really nice radio. I use it in the garden during the summer months, and it keeps agreeably charged in the sunlight. But I keep the charger handy, and sometimes have to top up once in a while. The sound quality is excellent, and is very rich in the base, which I think is the reason why the battery cover vibrates when I have the volume any higher than modest-to-medium. A bit of a nuisance when I want to listen at higher volumes, such as when I am in the kitchen, and the radio must compete against the sounds of boiling kettle and microwave fan. When I press my thumb against the battery cover, the vibrating ceases, so I am looking out for a very thin bit of foam, which if positioned tightly under the cover, will stop the buzzing noises.

    UPDATE. I used a piece of folded tissue paper to jam between the batteries and the flap/door thing. This is only somewhat successful, but does reduce the buzzing and vibrations that otherwise would occur, but does not suppress them for loud volumes. This is sufficiently annoying for me to get another radio for when I want louder volumes. Not a Roberts, though.

    had one that stopped working after 2 weeks. got it replaced my amazon, had the new one as soon as I sent the old one of.
    have had no problem with the second one so far would highly recommend this radio, had in the garden and solar works great.
    forget about small writing on buttons. as soon as you press the big search button you only need to read the display. and select your station not that hard is it?

    As a Gardener of 15 years, I'm now on my forth Dab Radio. All Roberts. This latest one seems to be better than ever. Particularly on the Solar charging front. The charging light comes on even in overcast cloudy skies. The result is the Radio lasts a full 6/7 hours. I then charge the radio for an hour or so each night. Sound quality is clear and sharp. Not quite as good on FM, but not bad. The only downside is that it's not waterproof, a useful perk in my line of work. An upturned ice-cream container does the trick.

    Sounds a bit basey but a real work horse.

    Almost 2 years to the day I bought my last one it packed up, however, I'm buying another one, this will be my third.

    Neat size, looks nice. Agree with the other comments regarding inferior batteries, I tend to use mine on mains. I originally bought it to listen to Radio Lancashire as I couldn't get a good reception on my previous radio. Dissapointingly for me, that station is not yet available on DAB, but other stations (on DAB) are crystal clear. Bought after seeing one in use when having my house painted. The workman had one and I was very impressed by it.
