I once accidentally dropped a radio cassette player into a river. Pulled it out in seconds, but it was never the same again. If only it was water-resistant like the Poolside 2 radio from Roberts.
The Poolside 2 is an FM/MW radio that’s splash proof – that means it can withstand a moderate amount of water, not a long soak in the bath. And just to jump on a bandwagon, it also has what’s described as a “contemporary iPod design”. Other features include a bracket for hanging it somewhere. LED torch and poolside alarm (in case of emergency), auto-tuning, five presets and best of all, five preset nap timers. They saw me coming.
The Poolside 2 costs £60.
