Makita launches multi battery radio torch

  • Cordless site radio
  • Runs on Makita 14.4v or 18v Lithium-ion batteries
  • LED flashlight

The super-convenient, robust and multi-purpose BMR050 radio and torch combo affords both sound and vision on site: one tool, two functions.

The 1.4v triple LED flashlight is powered by either a 14.4v or 18v Lithium-ion battery to provide wide and bright illumination of 1,600 lx or more.  The six-position light head provides positive stops at -60, -30, 0, +30, +60 and +90°.

The push-button operated AM/FM digital tuner has an LCD digital display and includes a three-stage battery indicator.  Positioned beneath the flashlight, a large single speaker is forward facing and provides clear sound transmission, even at full volume.

The BMR050 has a rubberised, ergonomic soft grip handle and comes complete with shoulder strap for comfort, convenience and easy carrying to site.

The Makita battery radio torch is expected to be a popular hit with the trade.
