Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great partner for your R1 or MR1 I bought this to use for either my R1 or MR1. Fitting is very easy, and it works very well. It looks very good on the speaker, including being able to tuck the antenna into the slot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to a brilliant radio. I bought this external battery so I could use my lovely Ruark radio in my car at the Drive In Opera. Now I can have the same excellent sound anywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product as far as I can tell! I have the rechargeable battery pack but as I actually don’t have the Ruark MR1 Mk2s as yet I can’t really give an objective review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Increased flexibility Works great with the R1, which I can now use throughout the house and garden

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective add-on to my R1 I’m very impressed with my R1 Mk3 that my wife gave me for my birthday, and I figured that the BackPack would extend its use outdoors. Battery life seems to run close enough to the suggested 12hr capacity, and it fits nicely to the R1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Honestly I think the rourke R1 has an amazing sound that is quite distinguished and different from the rest. With this uniqueness and flavour comes the ability to change the sound via the Bass, Treble controls that can effectively make it sound worse or just like any other speaker. I love the amount of radio presets. The bass is quite supreme and the classical is a joy to listen to on Fm. I have tested the radio in the garden with the rourke R1 backpack and it has delighted the neihbours aswell as myself and friends. The sound is far reaching and clear. The bluetooth is quite an amazing feature and the system emanates company organisation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruark outdoors. Used my R1 outside for the first time today after fitting the new backpack a couple of weeks ago. Wonderful to be able to listen to music while reading with the usual high quality Ruark sound and not blast the neighbours out. I'm old enough to want quality rather than volume so "perfick". Delivery was as promised and the backpack was installed well within 24 hours of ordering. thank you Ruark. Just one question; was there a Mark 1 R1 because I think mine is old enough? It doesn't really matter. It works perfectly. Sorry, second question ; are you ever going to produce a turntable to go with my MR4 Mk3 so that it becomes a complete music centre / TV speaker ?
