Based on the popular original, the Roberts SolarDAB 2 (SolarDAB Mk2) is an environmentally-friendly DAB and FM radio with an innovative solar-powered battery charging system.

Like any other radio, the SolarDAB 2 can be run from the mains, using the supplied adaptor, or from standard or rechargeable AA batteries. But the SolarDAB has an eco-friendly trick up its sleeve in the form of an advanced solar panel - allowing you to power the radio simply by placing it in direct sunlight. This solar system can not only be used to power the radio but also allows you to charge standard NiMH or NiCad rechargeable AA batteries inside the radio too. In good sunny conditions there's even enough power listen to the radio and charge a set of batteries at the same time. To help you find the best charging location and tell you how much battery power you have left, there are built-in solar level and battery level indicators.

With both DAB and FM (with RDS) reception, you'll never be short of something to listen to and the SolarDAB 2 delivers a delightful sound thanks to its 6.3cm full-range driver. If you have an iPod, iPhone or other portable music player you can connect it to the SolarDAB2 via its minijack auxiliary input and enjoy all your portable music. And finally. for private listening, there's a headphone socket too.

Perfect for taking down the garden or by the pool, or as an eco-friendly replacement for battery hungry portable radios, the SolarDAB 2 is innovative and extremely entertaining.
