New RIDGID GEN5X 18-Volt Charging Jobsite Radio with Bluetooth Review R84085B

Charging Jobsite Radio

If you do not have a Bluetooth job-site radio in your shop, you are missing out.  Most people would say that a battery operated radio is one of their favorite tools.  Because this radio is now also a charger, the user has the option to throw a battery in it and leave it to use the radio when away from power and charge when you return or use this as a radio and a charger on the jobsite.

No matter how you use it, this radio is set up well and has good reception.  The radio is put together so well that the side compartments were unknown to us for some time.  Those areas allow for a great place to store a phone or other items out of the weather.  This radio is weather resistant, so it can take dust and rain, but not a pressure washer or a dunking under water.

If you are into the Ridgid battery line and looking for a nice radio with great features, look no further!
