An excellent product
on 7 November 2013
I bought a different make of DAB radio a few months ago - and the 4 LR14 batteries needed replacement at least every week. Because the radio sits in the bathroom, it has to be battery powered and a short battery life is irritating. This is why I bought the Roberts Classiclite as a replacement and have been delighted. I don't know whether the claim of up to 100 hours is correct, but after 3 weeks, and a couple of hours per day usage, I haven't had to recharge the batteries.
Sound is good. Only one niggle and the only reason for missing the 5 stars is that the display light comes on when you switch the radio on - not helpful if you are trying to maximise battery life. There is a dimmer button which has to be depressed 4 or 5 times to cycle round to the "no light" setting. The instruction manual is incorrect in saying that the light automatically switches off after 12 seconds - it does not.
Overall though, a very good product, especially if the long(er) battery life is important to you.
