Reviews and Problems with Logitech Squeezebox Radio Accessory Pack

Great Battery...Not So Great Remote

Summary: The remote in this pack is virtually useless. You can switch the radio on/off and control the volume well enough, but that's about it. There's no way to get to your favourites. The battery on the other hand is good. It charges as the radio is plugged in...and charges fairly quickly..
Programming the remote to select your preset favorites
26 June 2012
Summary: I have seen reviews complaining that the Squeezebox remote cannot be used to select your preset stations. I too found it strange that Logitech had not included this facility. I called Logitech and was told that this function was not possible with the small remote provided with the battery pack.
Summary: Have had this for 4/5 months and it's been great - essential for SQ box Radio which is not the best user friendly facia - this remote solves that - it is very easy to use for playback and radio station selection/ sound level adjustment - and the price was much lower than a new AP.
Summary: It is ridiculous that the remote cannot be used to select the preset stations. This effectively means that the remote can only be used to turn the radio on and off and to adjust the volume. The radio is a fine product but the restricted remote really let's down the package.
Summary: Being able to unplug the radio from the mains supply and to move it without it losing connection is a great boon. It isn't a problem with conventional radios because there is no delay in reception.
Summary: I am happy with this product and it does what you expect. What a pity the Logitech has flushed the product line - Shame - Sonos shows how to do it - obvious that Logitect didnt really know what they were doing with these fine products
Summary: The battery and remote didn't arrive as quickly as the Logitech Duet ordered at the same time, it's a bit expensive for what it is; although it was about £45 when it first came out. It does make the Squeezebox portable and it seems to last about 4 hours between charges.
Summary: I am an existing user of squeezebox radios so have had these kits before. They do exactly as described and make the radio fully portable. It would be good if the battery was sold separately as I have less need for the remote.
