Overall, the radio is good and it looks great but if you're looking for longevity in a charging port then this isn't it.
I thought I would have to read the instructions from cover to cover but no plugged it in, extended the aerial and clicked the Mode button for DAB radio and it automatically started searching for all the radio stations. Within 1 minute I had access to the radio stations I had not previously had on our other DAB radio ( another plus). Within another minute I had set my alarm clock and had docked my ipod classic.
This is a great radio/alarm clock and I am extremely pleased with my purchase
Thank you very much
