Tesco CR112DABV Clock Radio Review.

This unit is mains operated but can also take 6 x AA batteries. This allows you to take it with you and use it as a portable radio or alarm clock when camping etc.

The alarm clock functions just like it should and the radio does too although the radio is a little tinny. This is because of the small speakers but there is a headphones socket for private listening. Of course, this also makes the sound much better if you have quality headphones.

There are 10 presets which is ample and it also has a handy snooze button.

To sum up this unit we would have to say that it does exactly what it is intended to do. The only real negative things are the sound being a little tinny and that it has no DAB+.

    How do you set the clock and alarm clock? Tried everything

  2. Robbie says:

    It can be fiddly. We found that you need to put the radio on first then do the following.

    1) With the radio on, press and hold the info/menu button for a few seconds. You will see a menu.
    2) Press the buttons on the left < or > to find “system” and press “enter”.
    3) Find the clock and alarm settings there.

    You may find that nothing happens unless you actually have the radio on, ie listening to a station.
