    I have the big Bosch 360D, great sound, lasts about 10 hours playing radio or mp3 volume 15 (out of 20) on a 18V 3A batterypack. I choose this radio because of the durability as I spend a lot of time outside camping with friends, like a month each year… No concern for rain, dropping it, heard from Bosch people a 9 meter on concrete drop should not be a problem, see tests on youtube, 12meter is where the first radios start to fail, impressive. Some things I do not like: no mp3 name, tag or id on screen / no folder scolling / only reads 999 tracks / only shuffles 250 tracks / who needs AM radio / heavy a bit too much to carry far so I added a shoulder strap / no bluetooth so I added one myself, usb powered, line out, fits in the closed bay, 5 meters reach, but wireless, handsfree, audio from music or video player, phone, laptop, tablet, perfect…

    Very helpful roundup. One feature not explicitly discussed is weather or not the unit runs off DC power. I often find myself using a radio (and lots of cordless tools) in areas where there is no easy access to AC power. Any chance you can add that info?
