Good Radio with short battery life

By Jim

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Durable
  • Good Sound Quality
  • Great Reception
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Short Battery Life

Best Uses

  • Home Use

Comments about Grundig Pocket AM/FM Shortwave Radio:

The radio is well made with great sound quality. Very compact, will fit into a shirt pocket. It would be nice if the case had a belt loop. The major problem is the short battery life. The batteries are not dead, but when they get a little weak the radio will turn off. You can restart it and it will turn off again. Batteries can be used in another device and they will operate it. Tested batteries taken out and they show 1.1 to 1 volt left. Having an SD slot would make this radio better to take your music while traveling.

      A Lemon

      from New York, NY

      Pros

      • None

      Cons

      • Kept shutting off

      Best Uses

      • No Use Whatsoever

      Comments about Grundig Pocket AM/FM Shortwave Radio:

      The Grundig has a feature that automatically turns the radio off after 15, 30, or 45 minute intervals. Which I find unnecessary. But worse, that function was haywire in mine--so that the radio was constanty shutting off. I had to return it and asked for full refund. National Geographic was very responsive, told me to keep it or donate it. I threw it out.

        Better than I expected! It works!

        By Transistor Sister

        from Vancouver, British Columbia Canada

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Slim Easy To Carry
        • Works On A Train

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Commuting

          Comments about Grundig Pocket AM/FM Shortwave Radio:

          I have purchased transistor radios in the past for dog walks and commuting on the train. Either they were large, or didn't work on the train (static). This product exceeded my expectations. Clear reception on the train. Slim profile. It works for me. 2 batteries vs large data usage on the Iphone.
