Product description

Product Description

The Ecologic 1 is a member of the Roberts brand new Ecologic range, developing and enhancing our products to become more environmentally friendly. The Ecologic 1 benefits from all the usual fantastic features of a Gemini 59 and is an extremely compact portable DAB/FM radio measuring just 160(w) x 105(h) x 35(d) (mm). This tiny gadget is only slightly bigger than some personal radios on the market!

However, the Ecologic 1 has built-in battery charger, enabling you to recycle rather than having to purchase new batteries at the end of their life. It's improved power consumption also ensures the batteries will work for longer.

The Ecologic 1 is simple to use, when you first switch it on it will automatically tune in all the radio stations available. You can then go through and store your favourites on the 10 station presets. The Ecologic 1is a very easy to use portable radio, perfect for outdoor listening with it's built-in battery charger, alternatively it can be powered from the mains.

    I bought this radio on the strength of the Roberts name and the three reviews on this page. I was not disappointed. It's a cracking radio,solidly built with a great sound. Its easy to use,and has two possible power sources.You can use the mains adaptor or batteries,either rechargable(the radio will recharge them when not in use)or the ordinary alkaline.You just have to move a small switch to tell the radio which type of battery you are using. It tunes into all DAB stations when you first switch it on and its a simple job to store up to six channels, and also with the FM band.
    Excellent radio.

    received this in time to listen to five live sport for the golf and cricket.
    Superb battery lasting power and really convenient not having to remove batteries to charge them and great signal and sound. Does everything I was looking for as I wanted a portable radio as can easily listen to radio stations on television at home.

    Bought this as a new bathroom radio so it gets maybe a couple of hours listen a day, batteries seem to last for ages unlike most DABs. Nice clear sound, a little compressed due to the small speaker and would benefit from a tone control (why do so few DABs have these??). One minor niggle, the volume buttons could be bigger.

    Updated review after 3 months use; in keeping with others the on/off switch has "gone". Really not good enough for a £50 radio with the Roberts brand on. Avoid.

    When the on/off switch gave up after 1 year (works unreliably, getting worse until really annoying), I bought a different radio. When that one died, I bought a second one of these Ecologic1's, That shows how much I like the neat size, good sound, easy to use.
    But now the on/off switch is doing the same thing, after about 6 months of fairly heavy use. Either there's something wrong with my right thumb (?) or there is a reliability fault.
    It's a great radio, but I won't be buying a 3rd.

    Great little radio. Sound quality good. Reception amazing, even in my basement home where the freeview box needed a booster. Those poor of sight will need help with making presets, but once these are done the radio is very user friendly even to those of us with challenges both of sight and in use of hands. Economical to run, I've gone with using the built in charger to fire up the rechargeable batteries that were recommended to buy with it. Sound quality equally good on battery and on mains. Perfect purchase !

    Sexy looking and easy to use. I've had it over a year now and listen everyday. I love radio 4extra. The lost star is because it refuses to turn off. Why shut off with one button push when you can have 3 or 4. I love it really.

    I did a lot or research before buying this as I have always thought that DAB radios were expensive but I decided that I wanted a small portable radio to listen to in my home office but could be taken with me on trips away.
    I looked at a number of different types, mainly Roberts and Pure, and having listened to some of them I thought the Roberts had a better sound and build quality. I went for the Ecologic 1 as it was nice and small and would run off AA batteries including rechargeable ones, charged by the in built charger.
    I have had the radio for 2 weeks now and could not be more pleased. The reception is excellent and the sound quality is really good too considering it is only a 0.5 watt speaker.
    It is well built and easy to use. It charged my well used 2000mah rechargeable batteries from flat to fully charged in about 4 to 5 hours and they lasted about 16.5 hours over 10 days. My only complaint is that you only get 1 or 2 flashes of the battery warning light before the thing dies so I have ordered some more rechargeable batteries Duracell Supreme AA 2450mAh Rechargeable Pack of 4 Batteries to have a spare set with me when I travel. Make sure you change the switch in the battery compartment to the type of batteries you are using, i.e. rechargeable or alkaline.
    I would thoroughly recommend this radio as I am very pleased with it.

    Bought pack of re-chargeable battteries from yourself. Perfect signal with dab and sound quality is very good.
