press release

The small and compact GML 10.8 V-LI Professional jobsite radio from Bosch provides quality sound on the jobsite. Two five watt speakers, 20 volume settings and an equalizer function for bass and treble adjustment ensure optimum acoustics. The memory offers space for five station presets in the AM range and five in the FM range. Professional trades people can therefore find their favorite station with ease, or they can quickly switch from one station to another if their workmates have a different taste in music. Additionally, it is possible to connect external devices such as MP3 players via an aux-in port.

The controls on the front of the radio are dust-protected and easy to handle. The digital display shows the time, frequency and battery level.

Jobsite radio fits perfectly in half of the L-Boxx 102
The mobile GML 10,8 V-LI Professional jobsite radio is designed to be transported in the L-Boxx, taking up exactly half of the space in a L-Boxx 102. Professional tradespeople can store another 10.8 volt tool, such as the GSR 10,8-2-LI Professional cordless drill/driver in the other half. The radio can either be powered by a 10.8 volt battery or it can be connected to the mains (230/110 volts) using the adapter supplied. The adapter is easy to store in the radio, so it is quickly within reach when needed. On the middle volume setting and with a full battery, you can listen to the radio or music in cord­less mode for about one working day.

A robust housing and the handles protect the display and controls against damage if the jobsite radio should happen to fall. It remains fully functional when dropped from a height of one meter.

The GML 10,8 V-LI Professional jobsite radio will be available at specialist retail outlets from September 2012 onwards at the recommended retail price of 99 euros plus VAT. It is supplied in a carton with mains adapter, aux-in cable and two AA batteries for the display. From September on­wards, the radio will also be available in a set with the Bosch GSR 10,8-2-LI Professional cordless drill/driver, two 1.3 Ah batteries and a quick charger. The set is supplied in the L-Boxx at the recommended retail price of 209 euros plus VAT.
