Bush Pocket DAB/FM Radio - Black. 3.9 5 54 55
waste of money Bought this radio and charged it up ,turned it on and it found many stations , but all I got was static . Bought better headphones for it but it made no difference so I took it back and got a more expensive one . This is a waste of money. 15 August 2014
Quality of reception lets it down The initial set up isn't as straightforward as it could be - it took a long time and had to be abandoned initially as it seemed to get stuck - but I got there eventually, and programmed in the pre-sets very easily. Unfortunately the reception frequently drops out on a regular basis and can't connect to the stations, so I can't really recommend it. The reception might improve if used on the move rather than in a fixed location (I listen in bed) but, at the moment, it's really not up to the job. 25 July 2014
Nice looking product Not too bad a product on the whole but keeps loosing reception can be annoying 25 July 2014
Pocket Radio I purchased this as I have difficulty sleeping and so as not to wake my wife this little radio is ideal, it's small and compact, I can't drop it on the floor and break it. Smart and the sound is pretty good too an ideal buy., Thank you Argos., 24 July 2014
Bush Pocket DAB Radio CDAB12 I purchased this item as I wanted a way to listen to DAB while at work in my van through the AUX socket. The size its great so fits into the pocket, reception is very good and a rechargeable battery is a big plus and can be charged using my phone charger whilst still listening to my program. The only reason I have not given a top rating is I think the menu is a bit awkward to access and long winded and if you don't hold the button long enough you only toggle between DAB and FM wavebands 10 July 2014

Answer:
Hello there,

Li-Po battery should be good for at least 500 charges but longevity will depend on the care of the battery, for example Li-Po batteries should not be allowed to discharge fully before recharging them as this shortens the life.

Battery is not easily user replaceable but a competent TV/Radio repair shop will be able to do it.

I hope this helps,
Thank you for using Argos Q&A

In the menu you can view the current software version, can this device be upgraded
(to, say, provide a workable user interface?)

Can it be put in pocket while being used? Is it heavy?Does it get earplugs with it? I want to use it while walking home from the office as my mobile doesnt provide good radio quality. However, I dont want to have weight of my mobile and radio.

Answer:
Yes you can.

All you have to ensure is that the earphone/headphone cable is not wrapped up or bunched up but kept as straight as possible - as the cable acts as the antennae.

I use mine in my office that is surrounded by PCs etc and the reception is excellent. I do use it with the JVC HAF1X Xtreme Xplosive earphones - and the superior cable used on that aids the receptive quality as an aerial. Great sound too.
