3.0 out of 5 stars Great radio, poor solar charging functionality, 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to buy a Roberts Solar Radio for a couple of years and have waited for the technology to evolve before going for it. Based on the Amazon reviews I bought one a couple of months ago. Firstly the radio - all good, a great little radio with both DAB and FM options. The DAB reception is great indoors and out and the sound, although a little bass biased for some is good. All of my concerns are based on the solar charging capability. It takes the charge on well, but only in good sunlight. Right now, in the height of summer, it charges because I take it outside and allow it to sunbathe for a few hours every couple of days. BUT, the charge runs out very fast and I would estimate that at around 2-3 hours of listening on low volumes - this is very poor. Perhaps the batteries supplied are bad, I may try some branded, high capacity ones to see if that helps. But right now the solar functionality lets the unit down considerably. No issues with Amazon, but Roberts really needs to improve its solar charging technology. The sudden presentation of a red, low battery light is not good enough, why not a sliding scale battery charge indicator on the LCD display?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality from Tecknet, great travel charger, 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first one I ordered failed after about 6 weeks of use. Amazon replaced the unit quickly and the second one has been working well so far. i hope the failed unit was a one-off. The power outputs are great (you shouldn't bother with anything less than a 2100mAh output).Two sockets support an iPhone and iPad charge simultaneously. The travel plug adapters are well designed and work perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has the power output required to support today's power hungry devices, 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far so good. Replaced a 1000mAh charger which did not have enough power to keep on top of my iPhone's power needs. The 2100mAh socket does the job really well. Nice quality, well packaged and fast delivery.

Great rucksack, lots of room, but not too large. Great day hiking sack, also equally at home in the high street. Great quality, lots of pockets inside and out and a handy waterproof section too. This one replaced my previous Berghaus rucksack which lasted about 15 years of heavy use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, works extremely well and great value, 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works brilliantly. You may be sceptical when you open the envelope but trust me, I put this on my DAB stereo having had zero reception for 3+ years and suddenly a wave of perfectly clear DAB stations came charging through. Faultless. What a great little piece of simple technology. Worth every penny.
