I bought one of these this year and have used it about ten times. Not expensive, but very compact and with handy multiple power options. I found that charging it via the USB port was enough for a whole day session. You can switch to ordinary batteries if the in-built battery runs out - and you can wind it up if all else fails.

Don't expect hi-fi quality for this price, but more than OK for listening to basic radio tunes and banter. And it's 'fishing' green and has a built in LED torch!

This is a current eBay listing,, but you might find one slightly cheaper if you bother to trawl the net.

Sony xdr p1 is the best fishing radio I have found.

Small, strong receiver and can be recharged from a power pack for longer sessions.

Mine has been wet a few times in the boat and hasnt suffered.

I use a pure 400d, the charge lasts for days, and it's bombproof. It's discontinued now but I'm sure they'll do an equivalent model.

Pure Move T4, built in rechargeable battery, runs/charges off battery pack/solar panel controller
Sound quality is great, much better than the original Pure Move I have which has started to misbehave

I got a DAB from Aldi some time ago, it was either £14 or £17, can't quite recall. The batteries last ages.

It's an Envivo dab with FM tuner and there's one on the bay at the moment for £14.99

I’ve got an AZATOM Sonance T1 DAB Digital FM Radio Alarm Clock

Built in 1200mah rechargeable battery
Loads of features
Blurb says it weight 360grams

Uses a 5v usb charging cable so can charge it from mains, car, power tool battery packs etc

Conversely you can use the 1200mah battery to charge your phone in an emergency

Gets good reviews and British Made

The red one was a special on amazon @ £18.95 a few weeks ago now back to normal price of £28
