R1 / MR1 BackPack II Rechargeable Battery Pack

BackPack II transforms our R1 deluxe tabletop radio and MR1 wireless speakers into completely portable products. It frees these miniature marvels from the mains power socket and into the bathroom or onto the decking and the great outdoors.

R1 BackPack Rechargeable Battery Pack

The R1 Backpack allows you to take your Ruark R1 with you wherever you go without having to be limited by a mains cable with no compromises. The backpack delivers the same power to the R1 and MR1 as the included mains adapter meaning no degradation in the exceptional audio quality you would expect from a Ruark product.

Acoustics & Compatibility

Placing batteries inside takes valuable speaker capacity which can result in unrefined sound, but BackPack II allows R1 and MR1 to retain their rich mains powered performance, but with complete portability.

A total evolution of the original, BackPack II attaches seamlessly to R1 and MR1 and once fitted can be left permanently in place as it charges automatically whenever the music systems are connected to a mains power supply. A full charge will deliver up to twelve hours of mains free listening depending on volume.

Li-ion Battery

With the new Lithium Ion battery technology Ruark was able to make a slimmer, lighter battery offering the same amount of power as the previous generation increasing the portability of the R1 and MR1 when in use.
