Frequently asked questions
The length of time a rechargeable radio plays for on a full charge can never be given precisely as it depends on a number of factors, including the type of music played (e.g. music with more bass requires more power), the volume selected (the higher the volume, the more power used), the ambient temperature (a battery produces less power in low temperatures), the age of the rechargeable batteries, the use USB port, etc.
The UBOX 500R plays for up to approximately 1 working day on a full charge (at an average volume level, at room temperature – depending on radio reception and music type).
If I use my rechargeable drill near the radio the latter fades away. When I stop the sound returns. How come?
If machines (e.g. drills, saw benches, forklift trucks, etc.) or battery chargers are operated next to or near a jobsite radio, the electromagnetic field they generate can interfere with reception by the jobsite radio. In the case of DAB+ reception, strong electric currents in the immediate vicinity can even cause the radio signal to fade completely.
An average of 10 metres or more in open spaces. But this greatly depends on the type of mobile phone (the strength of the Bluetooth signal emitted by this telephone) and the presence of any intervening walls and doors. If you become disconnected from Bluetooth when leaving for a moment, as soon as you return within range connection will be restored automatically.
No. Once it is connected the radio only recognizes your mobile phone. Only if you purposefully disconnect in the radio’s Bluetooth menu can another mobile phone be connected to it.
In order to prevent the charging process from having a negative effect on the quality of radio reception and music performance it was decided to separate charging and playing in a number of models.
With DAB+ signal reception, moving the radio a short distance, even just a few dozen centimetres, can make a huge difference to the signal level. This is typical of DAB+ radio reception.
