You know what I hate? I hate it when I’m trying to have an intimate, 6 day garden rave with a little DAB radio, only for the batteries to give up the ghost a few hours into my epic party. Yes, I know a dedicated PA would make far more sense, but I like the portability factor and random nature of broadcast radio, so stay with me on this one.
It looks like the folks over at Roberts have had similar problems in the past, as they’re looking to launch the ecologic 7 portable DAB/FM radio, which features a mammoth battery life.
Running off of 6xD size batteries, the ecologic 7 will give you 150 hours worth of playback, as well as offering 20 station presets, an alarm function and headphone and line-in sockets.
While it’ll also work with an AC adaptor, its 295w x x168h x 115d size and 1.3kg weight put it on the right side of portable too.
Available in black or white and retailing for around £89.99, you can get more info on the ecologic 7 by visiting the Roberts website here.
