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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery doesn’t last long The radio was bought for me as a birthday present. I actually use it mainly as a portable in the bathroom so it is not on for prolonged periods. However, the battery needs recharging far more frequently than my previous radio (made by a different manufacturer). It looks lovely but the limited battery life is really annoying as is the requirement to keep the on button depressed to switch it on. Relatively small things I guess but irritating for a product at a pretty premium price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top drawer quality, performance & aesthetics. We bought the radio & BackPack as a package a couple of months ago - everything is excellent & we are delighted to have selected this package after reviewing many prior to purchase. The radio normally remains plugged-in to the mains but we've used it on BackPack only a couple of times - up to 2 hours - and it has functioned perfectly. Just got to remember when switching on in BackPack only mode to press & hold the start-button until the Ruark logo appears - otherwise it will not switch on. This is covered in the instructions which come with the BackPack. We are very happy indeed with this high quality & beautifully built package - not cheap but great value for the superior performance it delivers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to add portability to MR1 Mk2s My Ruark MR1 MK2s sound great and this battery means that I can use them easily around the house. I have not worked out how many hours the battery lasts between charges but it does seem to last a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality! We have two Ruark 1's now. The style, build quality and most importantly sound quality is top quality. We added the battery pack for extra flexibility, which has been really useful. I believe they offer excellent value at the price they come in at.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Having problems. I purchased the battery pack and found that it worked well but now I am finding that it seems to decline to run on battery power as if it is not charging. I leave the pack in place and play off the mains supply. I am not sure if the battery button should be in the 'on' or 'off' position when left in position. I have tried both button positions but charging is not happening for some reason. Tim
