Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes great sound portable Been using for the last two weeks, makes already great speakers even better. Runs perfectly on battery power and has lasted through hours of music and a couple movies at moderate to high volume on a single charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it for quality and longevity Having recently bought the Ruark Radio, it isn’t a cheap radio purchase. However, it is so worth it and hopefully it will last for years to come. I decided to buy this Backpack. This allows full portability so the radio can be enjoyed around the home without the fuss of having to keep plugging it into the mains. It is easy to fit, looks totally in keeping with the unit. As detailed in the instructions, when playing the radio from the battery, you have to keep your finger pressed on the on button until the Ruark display appears (2 secs) and then you’re good to go. The only downside is that the battery isn’t guaranteed for 3 years like the radio is. I bought this as a package with the radio which made it more appealing. Would certainly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile extra. I bought this along with the R1 Mark 3 as I regularly take the radio into a garage/workroom. Exactly the same sound as on mains of course - which is excellent. It screws to the back of the radio and looks like part of the original, recharging automatically when plugged back into the mains. Fairly pricey, but very well made. Replacing regular batteries would soon cost as much as the backpack! Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enables portability while retaining sound quality I bought the Ruark Audio BackPack II in April 20 in order to take the R1 to places without mains power. The BackPack is well engineered and integrates easily into the radio, keeping with its aesthetics. Following the instructions for using the radio with the battery attached sets the expectations for the user - I do not find waiting a couple of seconds for the set to come to life an issue at all. I believe the product is value for money as I could not purchase an alternative portable radio with similar sound quality for the price of the battery pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great improvement I brought this to replace old backpack which had started to fail. The longevity of the charge is a great improvement but I wish a battery level had been included.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't last for long Rarely used but kept charged. Now won;t take a charge and of course well out of warranty. Shame as it lets the side down as have both the R1 and R2 which are excellent.
