"Forget-it if you plan to use the so called "PORTABILITY" feature of this product."1.5 starson by shaggnasty
Pros: Durable, good sound.
Cons: VERY poor battery life even with the best rechargeable batteries on the market.
Summary: Very disappointed with the porability of the unit. Must always be close to an AC or DC supply due to the units power needs eating up even the best rechargeable batteries on the market in less than 2 hours. Lets face it, I was in the market for a PORTABLE unit, if i knew i was going to always have to use AC i would have bought a home base unit. Secondly if i knew i would always have to use the DC adapter in my vehicle i would have bought a vehicle unit.
Forget-it if you plan to use this unit on a picnic, beach, camping ect....Updated
Would expect extreme battery useage while using the CD feature, but even when using the satelite feature with the display screen on the dimmest setting, still 1.5 to 2.0 hour max.
