Hitachi UR18DSL/J4 Site Radio : Happy work force

Very good radio works off my cordless batteries.

Really good sound just the metal airial that lets it down it will get broken.

Its a good radio but the sound could have been a bit clear ( i mean louder ).

  • tidy little bit of kit.
  • Happy work force

Hitachi UR18DSL/J4 Site Radio (14.4 V, 18 V or Mains, AM/FM)

  • Compatible with Li-Ion, NiCad and NiMH slide and cassette batteries, from 9.6 to 18 Volt.
  • Heavy-duty design with rubber frame protection and a high sensitivity, large-scale antenna that gives a high frequency.
  • Fitted with a USB socket to charge any compatible mobile phones.

A site radio but unfortunately did not survive our site for long. Worked well but needs protection.

Tried it for one day at work and all good apart from there is a slight vibration from the chassis. Going to give it another day tomorrow and see if it carrys on. Doesn’t charge my iphone 4 either. Lasted all day on one charged drill battery so overall i’m happy, if i hear that reverb again and it’ll have to go back which is a pity but it would drive me mental.

I bought this after looking around and finding no reviews and no answers for my questions. . This does not charge batteries as is stated and it is kind of a bummer, but thats just the way it is. The product is actually nearly perfect in everything they claim it to be. The sound is good, not too basey or tinny, just nice even when cranked up pretty loud. The aux port and usb (just a usb charging port) are located on the outside, they would be nice inside but hey ho. The built quality is solid, it has a good solid carry handle and sits nicely when you put it down. For my 3 amp 18v batteries it claims i can get 27 hours use from a full charge, i havent tried it for 27 hours but i have used it all day long and its never run out on me before i’ve recharged. 1 other thing which is a tiny bit annoying is it takes a few seconds for the radio station to change when you press the button, so flicking for decent music is a bit boring. I’m definatly glad i purchased my radio i love it.

I bought this for the builder on site at my home. He said the radio itself is very good however, one of the power pack cables is extremely flimsy and broke on the first day of use. He couldn’t be bothered to ask me to get it replaced/repaired by supplier so fixed it himself and said he mounted the power pack on the radio ???. Didn’t know quite what that meant but he says the radio is sound.

Great sound with good looks ,a little annoying having to retune preset stations after a battery change.

Briiliant piece of kit especially if you have a matching hitachi drill as the batteries are interchangeable. Great for outdoors or workshop.

Excellent product pleased with purchase.

Great product at good price,battery lasts suprisingly long time,has good sound too,very happy with this purchase.

Arrived early item as described.
