german company bosch
has released an upgraded version of the power box™, a job site stereo
with a CD and MP3 player, AM/FM radio and a remote control. the aluminium and rubber roll cage
protects the radio, allowing it to withstand up to a ten foot drop. german consultancy
collaborated with bosch to develop the new design.
the latest features include an advanced antenna and digital tuner for improved radio reception,
a new subwoofer and four-way speakers that emit high-quality sound in 360 degrees.
there is a small caribineer remote control that attaches to a key chain and is stored on the
power box handle.
in addition to playing CDs, MP3s and iPods (from a protective interior charging station),
the power box also recharges bosch power tool batteries, cell phones and other 12v
electrical equipment. the backlit UI was redesigned to be more user-friendly,
and rubberized chambers that seal off the buttons and speakers protect the unit from dust
and weather conditions.
