Again excellent quality by makita, this radio will easily last for years and still play clear loud music. Easy to change batteries, only downside is the aerial is a bit flimsy and makes it hard to store.

Very happy with this DAB / FM radio as ideal for what I require it to do. Aux port located on front and in rear near battery compartment for connectivity to phones etc. Great sound produced and accepts many different Makita batteries or you can use with supplied mains power cable. A great addition to have whilst at work.

fairly expensive but i was given it as a birthday present. clear sound and i play songs from my phone through it if dab signal is not great in the area. only downside is I seem to have loads of stations my van radio picks up that this doesn't? perhaps an update might sort this I'm not sure as I haven't tried.

Its a radio, I don't use mine to connect my phone, MP3 etc., however it has been used as a hammer a number of times. Sound is good and batteries last for ages, the power lead I lost and can't find another one to fit without paying a fortune. Software needs updating (not just an auto tune) as there is now DAB+ with more channels etc. I don't think its possible with this radio as there is nothing in the user guide.

Sound is ok. Signal is sometimes a bit questionable but that could be down to area. Very big and probably unnecessary. Compared to a good Bluetooth speaker its just not worth the money.

The Makita DAB radio is one of the best out on the market. I’ve had other brands but Makita just sounds so much better. The 18volt battery lasts about 5 days so very little re-charging required. Tuning the DAB stations in is so easy and instant with so many radio stations to listen to unfortunately I spend some time re-tuning the radio as I like listening to so much choice of music. Overall great radio with great sound.

Got this unit in the white body. Sound is fantastic and bassy, keeps boredom astray when working. Like the fact I can store the aerial and plug in the battery bay when I store it back in my van. Versatile as it uses 10 volt, 18 volt batteries or mains power. Downside is that it does charge batteries whilst running off the mains plug. Never had a problem picking up DAB signal except for interferrance from a 110v transformer I put in next to or a battery charger for my tools. Apart from that it's a great radio, shame they haven't done a DAB and Bluetooth combined model yet.

Review for Makita DMR104W DAB Digital Radio by JPS Electrical Services
4th August 2018

It does what you would expect from a digital radio. It’s not too complicated to use but lacking bass adjustment is poor for those who work in properties whilst the client is home, especially if they’re trying to work themselves. They’ll take a pretty good hammering especially since it has the guard on the front.

Had one of these before it got knocked from my van, to which I replaced it with a Milwaukee one which is better (but also Milwaukee tools so the batteries fit) This was a good radio, well built, solid and good sound, however the bass was a bit much especially if it was in a corner or on a window sill and couldn't be adjusted. Prefer my Milwaukee but it was £30 more expensive than the Makita. Good radio for £100 and I Had it in white, looked good. Also can use the 10.8v batteries even though the manual said you couldn't. Lasted a day if not slightly more on a reasonable volume so id guess the 18v would be good for 2 days.

Had this over a year now, its great it gets thrown around in the van and on site but always works. It takes any of the Makita batteries, shame it dont charge them though. All in all a fantastic product wouldn't be without it.

It was one tool I could not live with out.

It is extremely useful that this radio can take all types of Makita batteries also. We also found this good value for money, however it does depend on where you purchase it from.

Hi guys it's Matt here from Tools2trust. I have a makita DAB radio and must say it's incredibly durable, made to last and easy to lose. With 5 possible station presets as well as roaming and aux lead ability this radio ticks all the boxes based on features ! It's even built to withstand light showers and knocks. The only problem and big problem that I have is...$$$$$ Money, I paid slightly over £100 for mine from Screwfix and felt it was WAY TOO MUCH, didn't come with a battery or a charger so that's another £40-50 as well as the original price ! (I know it says bare unit but still for £120 on a radio, you kind of expect that to be included). So if you're about to purchase then please weigh up the pros and cons ! If you can avoid VAT and claim it back through your business or spending £120 on a radio doesn't bother you then it's a great buy, but on a budget you may want to check out other alternatives.

I've had a few of these over the years always had issues with handles and the last one the radio function stopped working after a year. I'm a Brickie so my radio probably gets more abuse than most

Got one of these after going through 4-5 small DAB radios in 2 years. I'm pleased I did they have great sound but more importantly they are very robust it's had a few knocks and carries on no problem. Great build with strong sturdy handle. Wish I'd got this earlier it'd have saved me a fortune

Great radio, handy if you already have the Makita 18v battery's, 2 downsides, firstly it has to much bass and mine after 2 years has lost the writing on the LED screen which is a pain! But still the most important tool in the van.

Got 3 of these one for me and the lads. The only 1 negative is they are very bassy if your inside.
