3 Big data security analytics techniques

Sound judgement

This is a convenient portable rather than a gutsy boombox, so DAB and FM are equal performers at this scale; and if your favourite stations are digital-only, then you’ll at least get to hear them in more diverse locations.

Pure One Mi portable DAB radio

One of the cheapest DAB radios around, but there are inevitable compromises

The specs claim an 18-hour battery life. In my run-down test from full charge to its last breath, I managed to squeeze a respectable 19 hours of DAB operation. Clearly, Pure is endeavouring to disprove suggestions that all digital radios are prohibitively expensive and power hungry. However, considering the additional cost of the battery pack, the company still has some way to go.

Verdict

The One Mi’s build quality is pretty insubstantial and the user interface is bare-bones but you can’t expect a lot of refinement on a digital radio at this price. As it stands, it’s a likeable little radio that fills in a DAB-gap in case you have a windowsill that’s crying out for digital companionship. ®
