*Image shows battery attached to Ruark radio. Radio not included.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good piece of equipment I was given this along with an R1 for my birthday recently and find it a very good battery pack. I do have one slight comment in that the transformer plug would be better as an 'L' shape because there is a danger of damage to it from catching on the surface the radio is resting on. Otherwise very good. Very easy to fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Suddenly stopped charging Owned the radio and backpack for a few years and suddenly the battery stopped charging, quite a large financial outlay for a few years portability!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most useful addition The backpack is very easy to attach thereby increasing the versatility of my R1S and making it even more user friendly. I would thoroughly recommend such a useful addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Ruark purchase I brought this battery pack together with one new Ruark radio very pleased with the performance of both I now have three of the portable radios .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruark R1 4 Bluetooth Dab Fm radio/speaker I bought this as a Christmas present. Excellent piece of kit. We lined up all the DAB radios in the shop and listened to them all. The sound quality is superb and the build quality seems good. We have yet to try the FM radio but I’m sure it’s as good as the DAB and Bluetooth. We also bought the battery pack which we have yet to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a boring battery, R1S game changer! Great accessory. I want my new R1S everywhere, and this is the solution. No more re-boots between sockets. Just perfect portability. It’ll be outside in summer too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back Pack 3 Simple addition to your Radio, I'm looking forward to the Summer months for outdoor use.
Date published: 2023-12-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery Pack The battery pack attaches easily and makes the unit usable anywhere. However, after several full charges followed by full depletion of the battery it doesn't last for 12 hours as stated. Also, the socket for the charge cable is at the bottom of the battery unit so when the cable plug is inserted into the socket the cable is forcibly bent by being too close to the surface the unit is standing on. In time this will no doubt break the wires inside the cable. An 'L' shaped plug or the socket on the side of the battery unit would be a better design.
