    Hi there,

    My sister-in-law's boyfriend is just starting out as a builder/handyman so I thought a good xmas present for him this year would be a site radio. The Makita BMR 100 looks the best but does anyone know what would be the best sort of battery to get for it that could power it for a day?

    Thanks,

    T.

    I have the BMR100 and it does not come with a mains lead, however it does have a 12V DC input port on the front so you can run it from a suitable 12V DC power supply. Otherwise it runs from most Makita batteries (see Threadjacker's link for a list for the exceptions, e.g. the 10.8V batteries won't work). I run mine from the 3.0Ah 18V Li-ion batteries and it will last about a day and a half from a full charge. The newer DAB one may use more power - I've not used it.
