The VQ Blighty DAB / DAB+ Digital & FM Radio pocket radio is an ideal way to listen in to all your favourite stations on the go, whether it’s the usual commute, a trip to the gym or at a sporting occasion.

What the designers say

“In creating Blighty we didn’t want to compromise on the aesthetics just because it’s a pocket radio and conventional wisdom says “what does it matter if it’s hidden in someone’s pocket?

We believe we’ve created a product that you’ll want to show off, is easy to use, still sounds great and of course is easy to tuck in a pocket.”

- Jonathan Merricks CEO & Creative Director

Blighty by VQ is a stylish pocket portable DAB / DAB+ Digital and FM radio which lets you listen to all of your favourite radio stations on the go without needing to run down your mobile phone battery or rack up expensive data charges.

Blighty features comprehensive Digital and FM radio reception which means you’ll be able to listen to all of your favourite stations and discover many more. It couldn’t be easier to tune and find radio stations with your Blighty, on digital radio there is a convenient auto scan which will reveal all your available stations, which are then listed alphabetically. On traditional FM you’re able to scan radio frequencies quickly with the auto-scan or manually for fine tuning. Once you find a station you love on Digital or FM radio you can store it to one of twenty presets.

Blighty features a powerful lithium-ion rechargeable battery which will deliver around 10 hours of listening between charges, more than enough for a usual weeks commuting or a day at a sporting event. Blighty is simply recharged with a micro-USB cable, with one included in the box.

The Blighty DAB Digital & FM radio comes with everything you need to start listening straight away, with headphones included. If you do wish to use your own headphones, that’s no problem at all but it’s advised you avoid headphones which include a line-in microphone as this may interfere with radio reception.
