This is a very well built pocket radio, that anyone could carry and take it wherever he/she wants. With crystal clear sound & brilliant reception you can enjoy your favourite programmes at any time of the day. So I truly encourage you, if you are looking for a very good product in pocket radios just get this one, you won't be disappointed.
Went back to an old style 'tranny' after trying one of the latest solar/wind-up eco radio's that disappointed and broke easily. This one is very well built, enough volume for a typical kitchen or garage, and has really excellent reception, as with most sony radios. 2xAA batteries lasts for many weeks on an half an hour a day. Really unbeatable value at under 8GBP.
