This black 'VL-61801' DAB radio from Pure works with both mains and battery power and has a 1W speaker output. It boasts 16 station presets, including 8 digital and 8 FM and a facility to add new features as they become available via a USB connection.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Abidaddy Excellent reception and easy to use.
Living in a poor DAB reception area, all my previous attempts at receiving a comprehensive radio selection were limited, so I only bought this item to receive FM broadcasts in the kitchen.
When I performed a scan I was delighted to discover that stations that were previously 'invisible' or were of 'poor quality' were coming through clear and interference free !!
Item controls are well laid out and the item is very easy to use.
My only gripe was that the back up battery system is not conventional AA or AAA batteries, but you have to buy an extra 'Power Bar' that slots into the battery compartment.
Overall a good buy :-)
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Legislation
From 1st July 2007, all retailers of electrical goods must comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation.
This is a scheme to prevent all such waste being disposed of in general landfill sites and to promote recycling of components and materials. The legislation aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by creating products with recycling in mind and encouraging reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE.
How do I know what product is "WEEE"? The definition of a WEEE product is one whose primary function is dependent on electrical currents to carry out the main function, e.g. a toaster. However, some product, such as a child’s soft toy with an electric circuit, is not classed as WEEE as its primary function is a toy. For further details on product definitions, please click here.
You may also take the item(s) to your local authority Civic Amenity Site if this is more convenient.
