    Re: Milwaukee M12 Radio durability test

    I didn't drop kick mine down a flight of concrete steps like in the video but it fell about 6 feet off a water heater and down some stairs. I was fully expecting the plastic display to be destroyed but only a small scuff mark.

    My only complaint is that it doesn't keep time very well. Off by about an hour every 24.

      I love the idea behind this little 12 volt radio. I know we have a few options now in the Ridgid radio stuff, but I'd love to see a little 12 volt lithium-ion Ridgid radio come down the pipeline. That, and especially a new update on the Ridgid 12-volt right-angle impact and/or drill/driver. That would be sweet for Christmastime!

        Off by an hour per day? Could it have been a bad one? My buddy got one of these, and he didn't notice an issue - he's more than pleased with it.

          Might be just the AAA batteries that hold the time are low but they were brand new when I put them in.

          The only clock I ever use is Verizon Time

          Everyone comments on the radio and what good sound it has. Sometimes I get jiggy wit it

            clocks use quartz crystal that vibrate with the constant frequency regardless of battery voltage.

            EDIT: technical correction

              Vibrating crystals?

              Sounds more like witchcraft
