Solar powered digital (DAB) radio

If you are going to buy a DAB radio, then why not go green and buy a solar powered digital (DAB) radio?

Available in a range of colours, including shocking pink, these stylish DABs are sleek and compact.

The integrated solar panel on the solar DAB radio can generate sufficient power to charge the batteries and power the radio too. To monitor the power level being generated and consumed on your DAB radio, there is even a handy ‘level indicator’ on the display screen.

Once the rechargeable batteries have received a full charge via sunlight, solar DAB’s low power consumption allows the battery to power the radio for up to 27 hours. During this time, you can use your digital radio away from sunlight or mains electricity until further recharging is required.

Should sufficient sunlight not be available when the radio is needed, you can always recharge the batteries for your digital radio via the supplied mains adapter.

Due to its large battery capacity and compact style, the solar DAB radio is ideal for use in gardens, on windowsills, in greenhouses, or even further afield while camping, travelling, or on holiday.

And as if that wasn't enough, to add to the solar DAB radio's eco-friendly credentials, it is packaged using cardboard produced from recycled waste paper.
