Bosch Power Box 360 Job-site Radio Review
The Bosch Power Box 360 Jobsite Radio may very well re-define job site radios.
The Power Box has a five-speaker design with an integrated sub woofer and a weather-sealed digital media bay that offers secure storage and protection from moisture, dust and debris.
Simply plug your digital media player in, close the door and get back to work. Not sure you want to take your expensive media player to the job site? The digital media bay also features built-in SD memory card and USB ports so you can play your favorite MP3 and WMA digital music files right from your SD memory card or USB thumb drive device.
The USB port also doubles as a powered USB port so that you can also charge most USB-enabled devices. The PB360D model even features a built-in SIRIUS™ Dock & Play port for connecting select SIRIUS satellite radio devices (device, antenna and subscription sold separately).
Both versions of the Power Box 360 feature external auxiliary ports as well as a line out port for connecting your Power Box 360 to another unit.
The Power Box 360 can charge Bosch 14.4V or 18V lithium-ion power tool batteries.
If there’s no access to electrical outlets, those same batteries can be used to power the unit, which makes the Power Box 360 ideal for on-the-go or outdoor use.
If users do have access to electrical outlets, the Power Box 360 also serves as a power center. The PB360S model features built-in four-way power outlets and the PB360D model features four-way GFCI outlets so you can power or charge anything from corded power tools and small shop lights to cell phones and laptop computers. Both models also feature a 12V DC (car charger) outlet for more even more versatility.
The PB360D model features a fully back lit front control panel for easier viewing in the dark and exclusive remote control with on board storage for users to control the Power Box 360 from up to 40 feet away.
The Bosch Power Box 360 Jobsite Radio retains the distinctive and rugged aluminum and rubber roll cage design. By using precisely positioned rubber bumpers to suspend the radio inside the protective cage, the Power Box 360 is isolated from the shocks and impacts commonly encountered on the toughest job sites, so the music never skips a beat and the Power Box 360 stands up over time.
The Bosch Power Box 360 Jobsite Radio will be available in two versions later this year through authorized dealers nationwide – the PB360S, launching in June, and the deluxe PB360D shortly thereafter. To find out more or to locate a dealer, users may visit Bosch Tools.
