Tips on Buying a Bathroom Shower Radio
Some people enjoy listening to music or news while taking a bath. This is more relaxing and fun than usual bathing without music or anything to listen to. After all, multitasking has never been this relaxing.
There are different types of shower radio. They differ in features, sound quality, and water resistance. If you want to choose the right model, here are some tips to just that. There are many traditional walk in shower enclosures that are sold even until today, so it is no wonder radios are being designed to be used in them. Some people who prefer portable music can go for MP3 players and the like. There are models that are water proof.
The price ranges from ten to seventy dollars. It depends on the model and the feature you are going to buy. Popular brands include Memorex, Curtis, Sony, Panasonic, Sangean, Coby, and Protocol to name the least.
These radios can also be used at the beach and other places where water is very much present. You can enjoy it when you’re at the poolside getting a tan, in the kitchen, on a cruise, on a garden camping, and so on.
Most of these portable radios work on standard batteries. This includes AAA, AA, C, and D. Portable radios with C or D batteries can work for months without charging. AA batteries can also last for days and even weeks depending on the frequency of use. Some radios can be powered by AC electrical mains. Others can be rechargeable.
In choosing the radio, you should always consider how splash proof and water resistant it is. You will also need to think about where you want to use it and for what reason. Lifestyle is another thing to consider when it comes to choosing portable radios. You may want to think about where you want to bring it in and which places you are most likely to use it.
When it comes to shower radios, there are two main categories. One is the splash proof or water resistant and the other is waterproof. Waterproof radios tend to be more expensive and difficult to find compared to the splash proof ones.
If you are out to buy any if these two types, you must look for certification by IPX or JIS. There are government and military tests that approve these waterproof radios. Look for that guarantee and you can rest assured it is a quality radio.
