The DeWalt Tough System Music Player with Charger delivers quality sound with battery and phone charging capability along with Bluetooth connectivity . As with all DeWalt products the music player is built and guaranteed tough.
When I was younger, I worked in the trades installing drywall, finishing and and/or painting. On many occasions I worked alone which made the day go on by very slow at times. Bringing a radio with me so I could whistle and sing while I worked made the day go by much faster and more enjoyable.
My little radio took a beating on more than one occasion. It got christened with everything from water and dust not to mention being knocked over accidentally and as a result the life expectancy was not very long at all.
More often than not, the battery for my power tools would drain with nary a charger in sight. Then of course when I go to use the spare battery it has no charge. This resulted in downtime looking for a charger and waiting for the battery to charge. What I would have given for something that I could listen to music, charge a power tool battery and charge my phone all at the same time.
Fast forward to today with the DeWalt Tough System Music Player with Charger!
The DeWalt Tough System Music Player can be operated by plugging into a wall outlet using the power adapter that comes with the radio. The power port is located on the rear of the Music Player (on the bottom of the Music Player if standing upright) which is protected by a rubber cover.
Designed with the job site in mind, the DeWalt Tough System Music Player has built in charging capabilities for DEWALT 12V MAX and 20V MAX batteries. This is a much welcome feature that will aid in and enhance job site productivity.
Simply open the compartment and slide the battery inside. I am using the DeWalt 20 MAX Lithium Ion Compact Battery Pack (battery does not come with the Music Player but can be purchased at Home Depot https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.20v-max-15-ah-lithium-lon-battery-pack.1000719497.html). I have found that these batteries do have some life in them before use. With this in mind, I use up whatever battery life there is and then I fully charge the battery.
I love that the DeWalt Music System has the charger built in. This feature not only gives the ability to charge batteries for power tools while on the job or at home but it also gives the Music Player portability which I love.
Charging the battery is quick and easy. I simply plugged in the power adapter into the Music Player and then plugged the adapter into a wall outlet. The display will feature a little battery icon that will indicate when the battery is fully charged. I was really quite surprised and impressed at how little time it took for the battery to fully charge.
Turning on the the DeWalt Tough System Music Player is simple and easy. Just press the power button and music is at your fingertips. Please note that you must hold down the power button until the display appears. A quick press of the button will result in the radio not turning on. ( I learned that from experience).
With an AM/FM radio, selecting features and station settings are very easy to choose and set. Simply pressing down then turning the center knob allows you to navigate each feature. When a station you love has been reached, simply hold down the 1 button and that will set the station into the preset. Continue choosing and setting stations by pressing the 2, 3, 4 buttons and so on.
The DeWalt Tough System Music Player has 4 full range speakers, 1 subwoofer and 1 assisted bass resonator. These have been designed to provide a more clean and clear sound. Compared to other music players, there is a lot more bass which made the sound more enjoyable to the ears as it was less “tinny”. One of the features that I really love is it has the RDS data system built in. This means that the song title will appear on the display screen.
The Music Player is also equipped with a 3.5mm auxiliary input and wireless connectivity to any Bluetooth enabled device with 100′ range which is awesome!
I can listen to the radio or I can select from a playlist. I also love that I can charge my phone using the Music Player as well. This is of great benefit to anyone who needs access to their phone on a constant basis to communicate with the boss, fellow workers or in case of emergency situations.
The sound is great, especially when connected to a phone’s playlist. When using the radio I did find that at times the sound volleyed up and down as if it were losing reception. That said, when I moved the music player just a tad, placed it in the center of the room or used it outdoors the music came in clear.
