Product Specifications

Long now have men desired a more rugged radio. One that would withstand his accidental dropping to fill his garage with music. Long have campers looked to entertain themselves at their camp site with a radio but had to deal with home portable stereos. This radio is their answer. It's water resistant, can be powered by AC current, your car, and even batteries! No matter where you take it you will hear from radio away what you hear at home. It even has the ability to charge a cell phone, has 10 programmable memories, and even an alarm clock! If you are looking for a durable radio for travel, play, or even work, stop looking. Uses 6 'D' batteries (not included), AC plug (built-in), or DC Apapter (not included).
