Bosch Power Box™ “Rocks”
Music With More Power
Mt. Prospect, Ill. - April
15, 2004 - Today, Bosch Power Tools and Accessories,
a division of the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation, announced the
launch of its one-of-a-kind Bosch Power Box™ (PB10-CD),
the ultimate all-in-one power center and jobsite radio/CD player.
With a 4-way GFCI power outlet, integrated Bosch battery charger,
12-volt outlet perfect for charging cell phones and two-way radios,
AM/FM digital radio, CD player and auxiliary jack for MP3 players,
the Power Box keeps jobsites rockin’ all day long.
The Power Box solves one of the
biggest jobsite problems, the lack of electrical resources. Most
projects require the use of all available electrical outlets for
the multiple extension cords, plugs and other creative means used
to power tools, various chargers and scores of today’s jobsite
necessities. And, don’t forget the simple pleasures like
a radio that takes up a coveted outlet. Inefficient and often
unsafe, power issues are always a concern on the jobsite, but
with the Bosch Power Box, the trades can have all these functions
in one unique durable unit, and use only one wall outlet.
Users can plug any electrical tool or equipment into the Power
Box’s 4-way OSHA and UL approved GFCI protected power outlet.
Additional power resources include an integrated Bosch battery
charger compatible with 12, 14.4, 18 and 24 -volt Bosch batteries.
Furthermore, the unit offers a 12-volt power outlet for charging
cell phones, two-way radios or other devices. With all of these
features built into the unit, users no longer need to stress over
shared power resources. In fact, they can even make the day’s
work go by faster with their favorite radio station or CDs.
The Power Box is also a jobsite radio and CD player. Understanding
where other jobsite radios have been unsuccessful in the past,
the Power Box offers enhanced features designed to provide the
best sound possible. Users will find a built-in AM/FM digital
radio with 30 preset buttons (20FM/10AM) for favorite stations
and a front-load CD player with special anti-skip technology and
CD-R/CD-RW compatibility. A LCD clock display makes viewing the
time and function easy with its large viewing area. Keeping ever
expanding technologies in mind, Bosch also designed the Power
Box with a standard 3.5-millimeter auxiliary jack for MP3 player
Four preset equalizer settings,
pre-programmed levels that emphasize bass, clear, soft or vocal
music enhance the listening experience. With a press of the “Bosch
Sound” button, the entire range of sound receives a dynamic
boost in quality without needing to make complicated equalizer
adjustments. A midrange and tweeter speaker combination perfectly
amplifies music and radio favorites. Furthermore, for jobs that
might draw users away from electrical power sources, Bosch batteries
will power both the radio and CD-player.
Durability features assure that
the Power Box will last on the job. An aluminum roll cage prevents
damage from everyday jobsite abuse. Features like sealed buttons,
speakers, battery chamber and CD player assure protection from
the elements. And an integrated antenna eliminates the opportunity
to bend or break even a rubberized external equivalent.
Finally, with convenient power
management and handling features, the Power Box quickly packs
and transports with ease. An integrated cord wrap conveniently
stores the unit’s single cord; while a sturdy top-handle
ensures easy transport.
The Bosch Power Box is also available
in a radio-only design (PB10). Both units will be available nationwide
where fine Bosch products are sold.
