Portable DAB radios are great. But paying a small fortune for disposable batteries to enjoy your music on the go? Not so great. Thankfully, there are a number of rechargeable DAB radios that can make this issue a thing of the past. To help you make the right choice, we've narrowed down the options to our top three picks. Read on to discover our top picks!

First up, we have the VQ Christie, a stylish retro-inspired radio with plenty of charm. Small enough to easily transport about with you, yet powerful enough to offer plenty of depth sound-wise, the Christie is an extremely versatile little model. It's comes with a whopping 10W speaker output, which is enormous for a radio of this size. If you're looking for a speaker to soundtrack a garden party or to cut through background noise, then the Christie is definitely worth considering.
The optional rechargeable battery pack offers up to 25 hours' listening from a single charge- more than enough for a full day out. Powering it up again is as simple as plugging the VQ Christie back into the mains. The Christie is also more than just a DAB radio- it also includes Bluetooth connectivity, so you can use it as a portable speaker, too.
Next up is another model from VQ: the VQ Monty. This is already our number one DAB radio for 2019- and with an optional rechargeable battery pack, it gets even better! Using special analogue processing technology, the Monty provides some of the best sound quality we've heard from a DAB radio. What's more, it also features Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to use it as a portable speaker as well.
And you'll certainly want to show off your new radio- the Monty has a gorgeous Scandi-inspired design with a real wood casing. It even has a neat leatherette handle to make it easy to carry about. The battery pack provides up to 25 hours' use, meaning you should get a few days' heavy use out of the VQ Monty before it's time to recharge.
Finally, we have the Como Audio Amico. Unlike the VQ radios, this model comes with a built-in rechargeable battery. Admittedly, the relatively high price will doubtless put it outside of many people's budgets. If you can afford it, though, the Amico certainly offers plenty of band for your buck.
Essentially, it takes everything that's great about the Como Audio Solo, and makes it portable. Uniquely for a rechargeable radio, it includes WiFi connectivity. Not only does that mean you can tune in to internet radio stations, but it also makes it multiroom compatible. That makes the Amico ideal for rooms without easy access to the mains, such as the bathroom or loft. With 8 hours of battery life, you'll get plenty of listening out of the Amico before it's time to recharge.
If you're looking for a rechargeable DAB radio, then we would definitely recommend the VQ Monty as our first choice. Not only is it our current number one DAB radio, but it's also great value for money, offering performance on a par with speakers at double the price. If money is no object, then the Como Audio Amico is definitely worth considering- especially since it includes WiFi connectivity for internet radio. Finally, the VQ Hepburn is another solid choice, with a design that makes it especially easy to carry around.
