Frequently asked questions

The USBBOX 2 has a USB/SD play feature. Which USB sticks and SD cards are compatible?
The USBBOX 2 supports usb sticks and SD and SDHC cards with storage capacities that range from 16Mb to 32Gb. (SDXC cards are not supported). A USB stick or SD card must use the FAT16 or FAT32 file system in order to work with the USBBOX 2. MP3, WMA or AAC files can be played, even if stored in various folders.

There are actual MP3, WMA and AAC files on my USB stick or SD or SDHC card, but the USBBOX 2 says "NO FILE". What's wrong here?
To read the MP3, WMA and AAC files, the USB sticks or SD or SDHC cards must be formatted according to the following layout:

Capacity of 16Mb to 32Mb -> FAT12
Capacity of 32Mb to 2Gb -> FAT16
Capacity of 2Gb to 32Gb -> FAT32 

USB sticks are more commonly used for playing music files than SD cards, so why is the radio fitted with an SD card slot?
The advantage of using an SD card over a USB stick is that the SD card fits entirely in the housing of the radio and the rubber cover completely encloses the card so it is dust and water resistant. In contrast, part of a USB stick is always sticking out and this makes it more susceptible to damage.

The USBBOX 2 is rechargeable. How long does it play for on a full charge?
The length of time a rechargeable radio plays for on a full charge can never be given precisely as it depends on a number of factors, including the type of music played (e.g. music with more bass requires more power), the volume selected (the higher the volume, the more power used), the ambient temperature (a battery produces less power in low temperatures), the age of the rechargeable batteries, etc.
The USBBOX 2 plays for up to 2 working days on a full charge (at an average volume level, at room temperature – depending on radio reception and music type).

The USBBOX 2 only recharges when switched off. Why is this?
In order to prevent the charging process from having a negative effect on the quality of radio reception and music performance it was decided to separate charging and playing in a number of models.
