BackPack 3 for R1 and MR1

BackPack II for R1 Mk2/MK3 and MR1 Mk1/Mk2 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.


BackPack 3 transforms our R1 Deluxe Tabletop Radio and MR1 Bluetooth Speaker System into completely portable products. It frees these miniature marvels from the mains power socket and into the bathroom or onto the decking and the great outdoors. Placing batteries inside takes valuable speaker capacity which can result in unrefined sound, but BackPack 3 allows R1 and MR1 to retain their rich mains powered performance, but with complete portability.

A total evolution of the original, BackPack 3 attaches seamlessly to R1 or MR1 and once fitted can be left permanently in place as it charges automatically whenever connected to a mains power supply. A full charge will provide up to twelve hours of mains free listening depending on volume.

Compatible with R1 Mk2/Mk3/Mk4 and MR1 Mk1/Mk2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to fit This battery pack is easy to fit and easy to use. Surprisingly it does not increase the overall depth of the radio is it doesn't extend beyond the width of the aerial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great. Logical purchase and makes the speakers really portable. Good battery life. Re the mr1 mk 2 speakers, I wish a longer wire was provided.
