Ryobi has been coming out with more and more tools to add to their already massive 18V platform. This time it’s the Ryobi 18V mini AM/FM Bluetooth radio. I have to say I am digging the fact that these manufacturers are coming out with small radios. It’s nice to be able to listen to tunes while you’re working, but not having to carry around a large radio. Don’t get me wrong, I love the large radios when I want to jam music loud, but sometimes you don’t want that loud music. Sometimes, you just want a little background noise.
I am not going to say the Ryobi radio is the best we have heard because it’s not. The sound is good, but not great. The reception is good, but not great. However if you have the Ryobi line up, this is a good addition. It has both AM/FM radio, plus the ability to snyc with your phone and listen to your own music. Bottom line, if you are looking for the one perfect small radio, this isn’t it. If you love Ryobi and want to add to your line up, for the price, it’s a nice addition.
