One for the sports fans

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

We’ve got the Jubilee out of the way, so now it is time to focus on the Olympic Games in London. With over 14,500 Olympians and Paralympians taking part, and more than 9 million tickets distributed, the 2012 games are going to be one of the biggest (if not the biggest) yet. So, it is no wonder that everyone is jumping on the bandwagon on an Olympic scale – even energy companies are using the games as a marketing tool – and electrical appliance manufacturers are no different.

There have been a number of limited edition portable radios launched by both PURE and Roberts Radio to celebrate 2012. All are DAB enabled for easy access to the new BBC Sport radio station that will cover all the sporting events, as they happen, and most feature a Union Jack design so you can show your support for the Team GB athletes as they compete in front of the entire globe.

The two PURE models are the ‘One Mini Union Jack’ and ‘One Mi Union Jack’. Both are compact enough to travel and produce brilliant sound quality for their size. The One Mini has a headphone in socket, and an auxiliary connection so that an iPod or MP3 player can be attached. Both models offer 16 presets so that it is quick and easy to find the station you need and both can be powered by a mains connection or a PURE ChargePAK. The price of the One Mi is £34.99 and the One Mini is £49.99.

Roberts Radio has released a Union Jack version of their popular Sports DAB 2 Portable Radio. Featuring a built-in loudspeaker, built-in rechargeable battery, 20 station presets, Key lock and earphones this pocket-sized radio is perfect for any discerning sports fan. The Sports DAB 2 Union Jack is £71.90 from Go-Electrical now.

These models are limited edition and once stock has gone, there will be no more. Get yours quick, and don’t miss out on an exciting summer of sporting events.



Be fashionable in 2012

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

According to the website colour is big for interiors in 2012;

“This year, we should all embrace colors that we wouldn’t normally associate, combine intense shades with balancing tones and think out of the box, giving our home a brand new personality. Dare to celebrate neon shades, using fluorescent green, yellow or pink, delivering thus new accent elements to your freshly decorated interior”

This got me thinking about how we can bring colour into our homes without tearing off the existing wallpaper, and painting the walls in clashing colours – can you imagine the headache – and I hit on the perfect conclusion…Coloured appliances and electricals.

Here at Go-Electrical we have a range of ‘Retro’ refrigerators that are available in some amazing colours. Whether it be a Gorenje or a Smeg, there is a fridge, or fridge freezer to match every budget and colour palette whether it be blue, pink or even candy striped (Smeg FAB28QCS £1279.90).

We also stock a fabulous range of Dualit toasters which are available in over 15 different colours. From a 2 slice Vario to a massive, family sized 6 slice toaster, Dualit should be the first port of call if you need a new toaster. Every part of the iconic appliances are replaceable which means your Dualit toaster could outlive you (grim thought, sorry!) and with Swiss-made timers used on every model you can expect nothing but reliable performance and perfect toast time after time.

To add a splash of colour to your kitchen and be in with the ‘cool crowd’ why not spend your hard earned cash (or Christmas money) on a KitchenAid Artisan Stand mixer? If you saw any of the lifestyle programs on TV last year, such as ‘The Great British Bake Off’, ‘Saturday Kitchen’ and ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Britain’ you couldn’t miss the KitchenAid mixer being used, or casually positioned in the background shots. This prominence in the media has made the mixers extremely sought after, and some colours sell out almost instantly. The mixers are available in over 25 colours, and open up endless possibilities in the kitchen because of the amazing range of accessories that are available for them. Homemade pasta anyone?

Even music lovers do not have to miss out on adding a bit of colour to their homes. PURE and Roberts Radio both make portable radios in a range of colours. The PURE Evoke Mio DAB/FM model is available in Teal, Lava, Cherry and Grape, while there is over 15 colours of Roberts RD60 Revival radios to choose from including a Union Jack print. Sounds cool to me.

Hopefully, this has convinced you that you don’t need to redecorate your whole house to be in with the fashionable crowd in 2012. Why not explore the Go-Electrical website further to see what else you can find in some lovely bright colours?

Roberts Radio new additions

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

There are a few Roberts Radio products that are new to Go-Electrical, so I’m going to fill you in with all the details of our favourites, as both would make great Christmas gifts.

The Vintage is a DAB radio which, like the Revival range, has a retro look about it – it is finished in black leatherette cloth and has wood effect side panels, and features two dials on the top (for volume and tuning). Just because it looks a bit vintage, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on modern technology though. You can enjoy unlimited station presets, and there is a ‘favourite’ button so you never lose your favourite radio programme ever again.

The amber lit LCD display clearly displays which DAB or FM station you are listening to, and the radio is very easy to use. The Vintage not only works from the mains but takes batteries too, and you can get up to 80 hours use when using the batteries – to make life easier (and more environmentally minded) there is a built-in battery charger which means you do not have to keep buying new batteries for the radio.

Other features include;

Headphone socket

USB socket (for upgrades)

Auxiliary input socket for iPod/MP3 player playback

Another new addition is the DreamDock. Based on the popular iDream radio, the DreamDock is the perfect bedside radio as it features a large, dimmable display, an alarm function and DAB capabilities.

The DreamDock is compatiable with iPod, iPhone and iPod Touch models, and it comes with a handy remote control (perfect if you sleep on the far side of the bed).You can save up to 20 of your favourite radio stations, and you can choose whether to wake up to one of them, your iPod or the buzzer alarm, and if it isn’t quite time to get up there is an adjustable sleep and snooze timer.

Other features include;

Auto Time set

Search/manual turning

Headphone socket

Auxiliary input socket

Also, now available is the RecordR which has the ability to record DAB and FM radio. To view the full range of Roberts Radio visit Go-Electrical. Prices start from just £20.00!

Fantastic radios from Roberts

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Roberts Radio Ltd was founded in 1932 by Harry Roberts and Leslie Bidmead. Since then company has grown slowly but surely and today Roberts radios are sold around the world, from Japan to USA.

In the 75 years the company has been making radios, Roberts has formed a reputation for producing quality radios that are extremely reliable and innovative. That is why today there are approximately 2000 shops throughout the UK that stock, and sell, Roberts radios – including the now iconic Revival radio (see earlier blog posts), which is instantly recognizable, and very stylish.

Roberts created the “first truly portable DAB/WiFi radio” when they made the Stream 202, and the “world’s first Solar DAB radio”, which not only looks good but is kind to the environment. In fact, Roberts have a range of radios which are eco friendly – these products are energy efficient as they have increased battery life and reduced power consumption. For example, the Ecologic Gemini21 has up to 150 hours of battery life, and the new Expression runs for up to 100 hours on its battery – that means these portable radios can be used in the garden, or taken on picnics to the park or beach, and there is no fear of your summer soundtrack running out midway through the day!

All products are packaged using cardboard made from recycled waste paper, and can of course by recycled again. Roberts Radio also has a fantastic repair centre, so if your radio does break (very rare) then it can be sent away and fixed, instead of being thrown away. All this means you can do your bit to save the environment, but the best bit is that it all saves you money, and we all know how precious pennies are these days!

Roberts radios and accessories are available from Go-Electrical and start from just £20.90 for a clock radio. Bargain!
