Pure ONE Mini receives a makeover; packing FM and DAB in a new case

Pure's small footprint One mini has had a makeover. Out goes the shiny black, white or pink finish and in comes an uber-cool soft-touch feel.

Mirror-finish chromed buttons of the old One mini give way to more restrained satin-finish controls that make the Pure One mini Series II look more like a £50 radio than a cheap budget competitor.

In short, the One mini Series II has been carefully tweaked to make it more visually appealing against the plethora of looky-likey, own-brand, inferior DAB receivers.

Like its predecessor, the Pure One mini series 2 takes a custom rechargeable battery pack, the ChargePAK B1, which retails for around £25. It's a useful addition and makes the Series II completely portable - ideal for use in the garden or on a UK holiday.

The One mini also features a handy headphone socket alongside a 3.5mm audio input socket for connection of an mp3 player to the unit.

While the sound from the 3 inch full-range driver in the Series II is not going to set the world alight, the radio manages a much fuller sound than other cheap rivals.

The radio's vital mesurements are 130mm wide x 135mm high x 60mm deep (excluding controls) and the low-power standby of under 1 Watt, with 3 Watts in use will appeal to eco-savvy consumers. Audio power output is rated at 1.6 Watts maximum.

Uk models will receive standard vanilla DAB and FM; those sold abroad in Australia, for example, will be able to pick up the country's DAB+ broadcasts.

Do you need DAB+?
Although UK stations broadcast using the DAB standard, there is a more efficient DAB+ standard in use abroad in countries such as Malta, Australia and Italy. Pure One mini Series II units purchased in Europe also support the DMB standard used in France and Norway. Pure One minis bought in Britain can receive stations on FM if used abroad with the appropriate travel adaptor.

The Pure One mini Series II is available in a black or white soft-touch finish online right now at under £50. The Pure One mini original model is still available at time of going to press.
