Omega Portable Rechargeable Battery 4-Band LW MW FM SW Radio- NEW
Radios that offer long wave and short wave in addition to FM and MW are hard to find - but this one also saves the planet!
This four-band portable radio from Omega has built-in rechargeable batteries, so you can listen without having to buy costly batteries which you throw away after use.
As well as the on-board recharging unit, you can also power the radio using the mains lead supplied, or by inserting 2x R20 batteries (also known as D, LR20, R20, MN1300, UM1 and HP2) (not supplied).

Easy to use
On the front of the radio there is a large tuning dial and frequency display, plus a power volume knob. A small button selects whether you wish to use the rechargeable batteries as the power source.

The radio has a folding carry handle and telescopic aerial.
