Received today - great!
Plugged it into my Roberts RD-50 (as listed as being compatible in seller's Amazon listing title) - not so great...
Smoke shot out of the radio - it turns out that the polarity on the supplied power supply was *REVERSED.*
The RD-50 radio requires a supply that is centre-negative, the supply I received was centre-positive.
Exit stage-right, one previously working radio.

This power supply was bought to replace one that failed for use with the Roberts "Vintage" DAB radio.
It works well.
It is rated at 7.5V, 1A output (the Vintage only draws 0.8A maximum) so it should run cool.
The cable between power socket and the supply is a standard radio 2 pin and the cable to the radio seems sturdy.

Pleased so far.

I bought this for my Roberts radio and it works perfectly. I like the fact you can change the plug so you can use it abroad. Quick delivery and well packaged. Overall, really happy. Would highly recommend.

Radio rated with a FLC 850ma, this thing is 400ma. PSU doesn't get hot. Radio works without any problems., but I would have expected an 850ma model if it was a direct replacement. I certainly would not operate un-attended.

After a little searching I found this as the answer to powering my partners much loved radio, works fine and was delivered well packaged in perfect condition.

Replacement for the original adapter which had very flimsy wire. Far more substantial than the original, and the lead is longer. The actual adapter is separate from the plug, and as such there is no stress on the joint with the plug - well impressed.

My wife likes Roberts DAB radios and has 3 of them. They are pretty good, but there is a problem with the chargers. They all have the same plug but some are 7V centre negative and others are 7.5V centre positive like this one. Both of these died after not much use, but this unit is an effective and hopefully reliable replacement. I will update if it isn't.

Yes this was excellent and a bit stiffer than the original, but to be on the safe side I taped the lead where it connected to the radio, with heavy insulating tape for reinforcement, as this is where the copper wires in the first one broke.So far so good.

No doubt the power supply is of good quality, shame ABC did not check the polarity of Roberts radio has the outer part of the connector as positive and ABC has the outer part negative. Hence unable to use the power supply and sits on a shelf gathering dust until i modify the connector wiring which will invalidate the warranty.
