Take Your Favourite Radio Stations Wherever You Go With a Portable DAB Radio

A portable DAB radio allows you to enjoy your favourite radio stations wherever you are: in the kitchen, in the garden, or on the go. There are models designed for personal play, which allow you to listen through earphones, and models that are designed to be played through speakers for everyone around you to enjoy. Whichever type you require, there is a model that will meet your needs and budget on eBay.

How is a portable DAB radio powered?

A portable DAB radio is powered either through replaceable batteries or via an internal, rechargeable battery. Some models can run off mains power as well as with batteries, making them ideal if you need a radio that can be used within the home and taken out when needed. Models vary with regard to the battery type that they use and battery life, so always check the manufacturer's information for details.

Are you able to connect other devices to a portable DAB Radio?
