General Observations: Battery life is excellentthe manual claims over 10 hours at medium volumeover the course of a weekend I used mine in MP3 mode at least that long driver smart card reader gemalto at sometimes loud volumes and it was still going strong.
The M7 comes with a detachable (and easily misplaced) kickstand to sit the radio at a convenient angle, a wrist strap, a short mini-jack audio cable and a USB cable.However, unlike most radios with built-in changers the M7 features an intelligent charging system which charges until the battery is full then switches off so there is no guesswork involveda charging indicator light is orange when charging and green when charging is complete.AM/FM operation is straight forward with a minimum of controls.Although it seems like nit-picking at this price point, I do wish they had designed their 5 built-in EQs a bit better because the potential is therethe M7 sounds amazing for its size.Navigation via the LCD display does have a major limitation in that it can only display folder or track numbersafter loading hundreds of songs intp several folders onto a Micro SD Card it was almost impossible to find any particular tracksI found it best just.Cell phones and the like have been doing this for yearsits nice to finally see a radio that does it too.Fake Knobs: Two fake knobs on the left were clearly put there to resemble the Grundig Satellit 500 and 700 radios see picture below)odd to say the least!Shoutbox provided by vBShout (Pro) - vBulletin Mods Addons, copyright 2017 DragonByte Technologies Ltd.It is powered by a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and recharges via its USB port from a computer or any USB chargerno AC adapter is provided.Those two dummy knobs notwithstanding it offers credible performance, pleasant sound and a host of features that belie its low price.
