The Crème de la Crème: Top Radio Brands

Milwaukee M18 Packout Radio

When it comes to job site radios, the Milwaukee M18 Packout Radio steals the show. It's the ultimate triple threat, combining power, features, and sound quality like a true pro. It's not just a radio; it's a lifesaver for your Milwaukee Packout gear, making it a breeze to haul your equipment around. This radio cranks up the volume, and the Bluetooth pairing is as smooth as a fresh pint. It's the top choice for our workshop, outperforming all of Milwaukee Tool's previous models. And if you're not keen on charging or Packout compatibility, Milwaukee offers some budget-friendly radio options too.

DeWalt DCR010 Bluetooth Speaker

We've got mad love for the DeWalt DCR010, thanks to its mobility and compatibility with both 12V and 20V Max batteries. You can easily power up the speaker using the included power cord, plugging into an AC power source like a champ. This Bluetooth speaker packs a double punch with two speakers and a bass function (EQ) that brings those low frequencies to life. But keep in mind, unlike other DeWalt work site radios, like the ToughSystem Music+ Charger, the DeWalt DCR010 won't charge your batteries.

Milwaukee M12 Radio + Charger 2951-20

The Milwaukee M12 Radio + Charger takes a dynamic approach to job site tunes, with a full-range speaker system, multiple mounting options, and the ability to charge not only your M12 batteries but also your smartphones and tablets. It's the go-to pick for budget-conscious folks who want something compact and portable. This gem packs a real AM/FM radio, something missing in many new Bluetooth job site speakers, and that's what makes it a winner in our book.

Bosch PB360C Power Box Jobsite Radio

Someone at Bosch had their thinking cap on when creating the Bosch Power Box PB360C. This upgrade to the Bosch PB10-CD PowerBox is packed with almost every feature you'd want in an outdoor or job site radio. Instead of the usual front-facing stereo speakers, the PB360C goes all out with four drivers that pump sound upward and outward in all directions. This radio might not win the loudness contest when you look from the front, but its multidirectional design pumps out more sound.

Ryobi PAD01 18V Bluetooth Speaker

The Ryobi PAD01 18V Bluetooth speaker delivers excellent bang for your buck. It boasts two 3-inch speakers that deliver crystal-clear music, even when you're cranking up the volume. Pop in a 4.0Ah battery pack, and you're set for over 10 hours of audio bliss. The Ryobi PAD01 even has a 2.1-amp quick-charging USB port for juicing up your phone or tablet.

Noteworthy Features:

  • Top-notch sound quality is a must for a job site radio, but having the right features can take it to the next level. Some models from Bosch, Milwaukee, and Makita come with built-in battery chargers, giving you extra space in your work ride.
  • An ideal portable radio should be a power champ, offering multiple outlets for all your low-amperage gadgets. For that, Bosch and DeWalt are your go-to mates.
  • If all you need is some water-resistant protection for your smartphone, you should pick a job site radio that matches your needs. Find the perfect match for your purpose.
