Makita’s Smart Job Site Radio Design
The Makita LXRM03B 18V LST Lithium-Ion Cordless FM/AM Jobsite Radio with iPod Docking Station, Tool Only is a great 18V Cordless AM/FM Radio that comes with an AC adaptor, an antenna, and a AA battery for the clock. The included dock allows you to connect your ipod, then listen to your favorite songs all day long while it charges. For most the built-in dock that works with your Mp3′s, iPods, and iPhones would be the most important selling point of this radio, but for the remaining tech savvy minority it would be the stellar acoustics. With carefully considered engineering, Makita asserts a statement with the LXRM03B that simply states, “that being on the job site doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice great sound”. With the LXRM03B radio, Makita delivers rich stereo sound from the two powerful 3″ side-firing speakers and the menu controls allow you to set time, FM stereo, clock settings, loudness, snooze, and the ability to control your iPod.
Makita’s Radio has Durability and Convenience
Makita has made the Lithium Ion Cordless Jobsite Radio with two auxiliary ports for your MP3, iPhone, or iPod, meaning while you have one plugged in and playing, you can hook another one up to charge. In addition, the radio is compatible with Makita’s 9.6V to 18V slide-style and pod-style batteries, which will run up to 16 long hours for you on an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery, or 8 hours on an 18V compact Lithium-Ion battery. The LXT Lithium-Ion battery and Rapid Optimum Charger produce an additional 430% more total lifetime work, with 3x more cycles. With that being said however, the battery and charger are sold separately . In addition to the benefits just discussed, this Makita Jobsite Radio is designed to be durable, thanks to the inclusion of protective bumpers, which enhance and enable this Radio’s water-resistant construction. Finally, this Radio has a convenient and compact design, weighing in at only 10.4 pounds, and is further enhanced by the presence of illuminated control buttons and a dial that offers improved visibility. Last but not least, Makita offers a 3-year warranty on the LXRM03B jobsite radio.
