The Bosch Power Box 360 seems very durable as evidenced by dropping it off my work bench several times while reviewing it. The Bosch Power Box 360 actually bounces!

I especially appreciate the Power Box's weather-sealed digital media bay that offers secure storage and protection from moisture, dust and debris. I can now safely take my IPod to the job site.

The power cord is beefy as is the aluminum and heavy plastic protective roll cage.

The Bosch Power Box 360 comes with a top handle but the roll cage functions well as a handle on any of the six sides. Everything about the housing and roll cage looks well made and rugged.

FUNCTIONALITY AND VERSATILITY:

The Power Box 360 can charge Bosch 14.4V or 18V lithium-ion power tool batteries and if no power outlets are available the Power Box can run off of any 14.4V or 18V lithium-ion battery. Which is ideal for outdoor activities, gardening or beach trips.

If users do have access to electrical outlets, the Power Box 360 also serves as a power center. The PB360S model features built-in four-way power outlets and will supply power to any corded power tools, other battery charger, cell phones and laptop computers.

The power outlets have a protective spring loaded covers and all of the plug-in ports and charging compartments have durable rubber plugs and gaskets.

The Bosch Power Box 360 provides it's lucky owner with many electronic charging and playback options; simply plug your IPod or digital media player in, close the door and get to work without worry of dust or damage.


If you do not want to take your media player to the job site the Power Box 360 digital media bay also features a built-in SD memory card and USB ports so you can play your favorite MP3 and WMA digital music files right from your SD memory card or USB thumb drive device.

The USB port also doubles as a powered USB port so that you can also charge most USB-enabled devices.

SOUND QUALITY:

My wife is totally into music and is the one with the music ear, she thinks this radio sounds fantastic. Me, I'm just happy to have music on the job site and a radio that I won't destroy.

The weather-resistant 4-speaker system and integrated sub woofer produce real nice sound in all directions with a whopping 26 Watts of sound output.

The Power Box's AM/FM radio with 20 FM and 10 AM presets, 4 preset and custom equalizer settings worked well and was easy to use.

My Ipod connected and played well with the Aux. cord that came with the Bosch Power Box 360. The provided aux. cord is ok but I have an aftermarket cord that is longer and better quality, [thicker wire] that I will probably use.

The Power Box 360 is a rugged and versatile job site radio and power station. It is the most versatile all-around job site radio I have seen.
I did almost everything the Bosch Power Box 360 claims it can do from charging my cellphone, to playing my IPod, to charging a battery and plugging in and using power tools. It worked great and as claimed.

The PROS definitely outweigh the CONS with the Bosch Power Box 360 but I would be doing you and Bosch a disservice if I failed to mention all aspects of my review.
