Product Overview

Details

Add some music to your work day while saving space! At only 10-1/2 in. and 3.5 lbs, the 2590-20 M12 12V Cordless Lithium-Ion Radio offers a footprint up to 10 times smaller than existing job site radios. With the introduction of the first digital processor in the category, it also delivers the highest reception and signal clarity in the industry. For those tough weather conditions, the 2590-20 features premium weatherproof aluminum speakers that produce a rich, full sound and a built in weather sealed compartment to protect smart phones and MP3 players connected to the auxiliary port. An included AC adaptor allows the M12 Radio to run off of AC or battery power (M12 REDLITHIUM battery sold separately), while shock absorbing ABS polymer and steel construction protects the radio from the harshest jobsite conditions.
Features:
  • Thanks to the exclusive digital processor, the 2590-20 Radio delivers highest reception and digital signal clarity.
  • Premium weatherproof speakers deliver a high quality sound
  • Weather sealed MP3 compartment protects any small device from rough situations

This is the best outdoor radio I have ever owned. I takes a lot of abuse - drops, rain, etc. Sound quality and battery life is excellent. If you have an iPhone 6 or later, it will not fit in the weather protected compartment. If you just want to listen to radio - this is the best (relatively) compact, durable radio on the market!!!

Everything about this radio works great except the radio. If you connect a separate device or play music it's pretty good. With the exception the battery life is aweful.

If you are like me however and like to actually use the radio tuner, don't buy. The reception quality is probably the worst I have ever had on any radio. I do live in a rural area but consistently this radio will find no stations and others will find a handful.

Compact radio
This radio plays loader than you would guess. There are many videos of it being dropped and surviving. It seems rugged but I'm not going to test it. Reception is decent. I wish it incorporated a USB port for charging devices. Unfortunately the first one I got had 2 buttons that didn't work. Tyler Tools replaced it and covered return shipping on the broken one. Otherwise it would get 4 stars.

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 120 days.
