PostSubject: Sony AM/FM ICF-620R Card Radio   Sat Dec 11, 2010 9:06 pm

So Iíve finally gotten some time to unbox some of the trinkets and stuff Iíve gotten from Japan. Most of them are Apple accessories but this AM/FM pocket radio from Sony looked nifty.

There were actually 2 variants when I first saw this ó one is just an AM Tuner and this other one which is an AM/FM Tuner.



The AM Radio Card costs about 3,000 yen while the AM/FM Radio Card like this one is 5,500 yen. I got the latter with a painting of Mt. Fuji on the cover. Other designs cost a bit more (6,000 yen).



The radio card is sized similar to a credit card and is just a couple of millimeters thin. The controls are placed on the side and the back. Tuning is done manually via a serrated dial, much like your regular analog radio.

It also comes with a pull-out earphone thatís tucked on the side. I was actually expecting a 3.5mm audio jack but thereís none so youíre stuck with the built-in earphone.



Another shortcoming (depending on how your look at it) is that the battery used by the unit is the disposable type. It would have been nice if they included a rechargeable Li-Ion instead but I guess that would take up more space again.



Bets thing about this card radio is the thin and light form factor and the very long battery life ó 55 hours on FM and 120 hours on AM. Best for when youíre on long trips or traveling to places with limited or no electricity. IMO, itís also a nice item for gifting this Christmas.
