To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The instructional manual might as well be in a foreign language for all the use it is. It wouldn't even open to display the setting where the radio is set up. I tried various combinations hoping i find something that worked, but sadly no joy. Hard to understand why a company like Amazon would sell a product that has a history of not working. It seems from other reviews that its regular occurrence.
When working out at the gym, I wanted a radio with headphones that was small. It is everything I was looking for even incuding the time. I am sure I will use when walking as well once the weather cooperates.
I bought this radio for am /fm programming to listen to on my daily walks. When I tried to use it, it was not functional at all. No screen lcd for direction on battery charge, no information on troubleshooting ; nothing. there wasn't even a phone number or website to get help. the phone number was a fax. I had to contact Amazon customer service to get return info. the instructions that came with it were how to turn it on and described external parts i.g. tuner, volume etc. but that wasn't much info for a non functional device. very disappointed in this product and the company that made it. it was just trash. probably someone else returned it and they reshelved it without examining it. BTECH, you need to up your game.
This is a small, dependable pocket radio with minor flaws. The battery has a short shelf life and requires frequent recharging. Sometimes, the controls do not respond as expected. I have to turn the device off for two minutes and re-energize before regaining control. I bought this to wear around my neck and under a shirt at local professional baseball games in order that I can listen while I work. The directions leave much to be desired, however, once decyphered, the radio provides dependable service and lasts through a complete 4 hour/nine inning AAA ball game. However, for the price, the radio, rugged and dependable is a bargain. It is sturdy and gives good service in both AM and FM frequencies. If lost, I would not hesitate to buy another.
While it has taken me some time to master the power lock and the preset station methodology, I have bonded with this small radio and its easy mini USB charging. As an alternative to the trusty little Sangean battery powered radio of the same approximate size, this is a great companion especially if you have some station choices in an urban area. The sound is quite good (the antenna is in the wired earbuds) although I don't think it always quite pulls in the stereo FM signal even with strong reception, as does the Sangean DT-180 and 120. The BTech company communicated with me right after my purchase. Very thoughtful!
Let me share the good points first. - great sound - small, lightweight - great reception - it is AM+FM, which is not easily found these days - some of us are about music and mind.
The rest of my thoughts on this little radio. I really wanted to love this enough to get a second one and one for a family member. It arrived looking as though it was already used, yet it was new according to the purchase info. I'm pretty sure. It was half charged. When I chose it I didn't realise it is an internal bat that gets recharged via the usb, as many moder devices do. That kind of was a let down. It doesn't charge enough or quickly imo. Then there is supposed to be a favorites setting. My hubby was able to set my AM stations up but the FM he couldn't get them for me. So my hands are not great, I have to scan for the FM choices and lose them everytime. The last let down is the lock feature isn't a slide type lock. It's a push down button. If you are an active person it will release unbeknownst to you. For me not only does this happen but also the power button gets hit 'off'. I hear silence, look down and see what has happened.
