BEST ANSWER: This radio is MP3 completable.
I read on Milwaukee's site that this radio has a USB port and they show a picture of that port, but some folks state that theirs has no USB but rather a 12 volt outlet on the back of the unit. Did Milwaukee change the design at some point? I looked at the display radio at home Depot and it had the 12 volt port but no USB...can someone clarify? Thanks.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
