Bosch’s PowerBox 360 is super-durable and delivers sweet sound, but it’s large and heavy. If you’re a one-man show with a small tool kit, the 360 will slow you down. That’s why Bosch’s new PB120 compact radio makes perfect sense. It’s small and lightweight and can be powered with an AC adapter or 12V battery pack.
The PB120 radio was also designed to fit inside a Bosch L-Boxx-1.
A downside of the radio’s small size is that it cannot serve dual-purpose as a 12V battery charger.
