I guess I'm happy?...
I am a big fan of the Milwaukee M18 line. When I made the jump from Dewalt I had to get this radio to replace my Dewalt job site radio. There is a lot about this radio that I like....obviously charging my 18V batteries, charging my phone from either A/C or D/C is great, I am happy with the sound quality and the unit does appear to be well built. The Bluetooth is where the issue lies. I bought this radio a year and a half ago...I had also just switched from Apple to Android. I could not get the radio to pair with my phone and I just figured it was something to do with my android. I was blaming my phone and not the radio. A while after that a friend was helping me in the shop and he could not get his Iphone to pair, which really surprised me. Now that I have spent some time researching this I am finding this to be a common problem and if you are able to sync up, the quality is reported to be terrible. I am disappointed because Bluetooth was an important feature to me. So beware, if you want reliable , or even usable Bluetooth, this probably is not the radio for you.

Heavy duty with more than acceptable sound.
Abosoluteley love the radio. Bluetooth is of some quality and it doesn’t kill the battery when the music is turned up. Only complaint is it’s a bit heavy to carry around but then again it won’t break on me if it does fall off the shelf.

It’s got great sound and the Bluetooth is awsome. The volume button dosnt always work tho so I’m forced to have it at a volume I don’t want. I’m a huge fan of the brand and have tons of tools in there name but the volume button not working on such a expensive product dosnt really sit well

Great sound, iffy bluetooth, heavy/bulky.
I use this 4 days a week for 9 hours a day while installing pipe on a scissor lift. It's loud enough that I can keep it on the ground to charge batteries and can still hear it while working in the air but the bluetooth won't connect that far. It usually cuts out about 20' away. The other thing is that it's a pretty big/heavy radio, I used to have a smaller DeWalt radio which was great for scissor lifts, this one is just simply too big to bring up with the rest of the tools & material. If this was made smaller, or if the 2891 had an AM/FM tuner, or if the 2890 had built in bluetooth, I'd be a lot happier.

How do you install the AAA batteries?? Can't seem to figure it out.... Please help!
Alanna on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a screw you have to take out with a small Phillips. It is in the top compartment on the left side towards the front.
Can you listen to music from an iPod with this radio?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use a Microsoft Zune. If it works, I pretty much bet an ipod would work. This radio is EXCELLANT!!!
How much does it weigh?
Colton on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is not too light but weighs enough to stay in place with other equipment in operation around the radio.
I set it down and play music from a recorder plunged into the unit.
The UPS port keeps the player charged as the radio plays the music.
The built 18 volt charger makes up for the weight in the unit.
A charged battery will play the radio a long time if you are somewhere there is not power available, I play the radio at the beach off of the battery where there is no power.

Does the radio have receptacles to plug cords into , like the Bosh . If not will this coming soon ?
Bot Flot on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No Plugs For 120 volt power on the one I have, a little heavy with the included battery charger.
A battery charged in the charging port will power the radio for many hours.
Good radio, the music I listen to is recorded on a portable player. The player is powered by the USB port built into the radio. Much of the time I am in the country with poor radio reception .

Does it come with a battery
Bob on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: @Dennis - For being a "Staff Expert" you really botched your answer. Want to try again there bud? I know it's old but you still have bunk information for any future purchasers.

The correct answer is No, this does not come with a battery. It IS, however, a charger. It will charge your M18 batteries. I know that wasn't the question but our Staff Expert may have given confusing information.
I already have $1000 invested in M-12 products.
Is there an adapter to use m-12 batteries in this?
Also what is the actual weight of the unit.
Dixie on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have this radio and it is good radio.
All of my tools are M-18.
The unit is a little heavy with the charge included.
I play recorded music most of the time with a small music recorder plugged in, with the included USB port the player can be charged at the same time the music is being played.
It would be better if a CD player was included in the radio. I have a few CDs I play in the truck and it would be nice to use the same CDs. I guess I need to get a small CD player that can be powered by the USB port.
I think they have a smaller radio that operates off of M-12, do not know if it includes a charger. Look at see if they still have the other radio. My son has one of the radios in his shop.
I use the small impact driver a lot and keep a battery in the charger so a fresh battery is always available when it is needed.
Sometimes the AM is a little weak when listening to baseball games. A short wire around the antenna helps sometime in getting a good signal in AM mode.

roughly how long will the unit play half sound with a 3.0 mah batttery
Josh on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry it took so long but I gave the radio to my son for his birthday. Talked to him his weekend and he said his radio has been running about 22 hours on a 3amp hour battery and still has 2 bars left. He loves really loves the radio. Made a bracket to mount it on the lawn mower. If I go to the weld shop it playing endlessly even if I am welding on high frequency and the blue tooth is great. My son told me he would rather the radio than his new M18 3/8th impact. Good luck.

A shopper on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the M18 battery should charge a M18 battery.

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.
