hi shane! does the sysroc come with a built in battery like the syslite? not sure if that was covered.

@#Tee, good question. No internal battery. You can power it with AC power or with an external Festool battery pack.

Here's a look at the backside. With the AC power, you have a hanging hook. You can just slide that part off and replace it with a battery pack.

thanks shane, maybe in the future they can make a sys roc lite, led flash light built in speaker would be the ultimate :), im sad theres no usb support for the us version :(

There you go tee!!

Kind of like a centrotec setup for the battery platform. Battery in back, lights with control board and switch, USB charging plate, radio interface, all sorts of things!

Cheers. Bryan.

The SysRock does not have a built in battery like the KAL II SysLite?  If not, that's a problem.  You can't use the hook when an auxiliary battery is in place so you are forced to use the AC adapter cord anytime the hook is used?  That really limits when you can use the hook. 

And the Syslite Duo does not have a standard tripod socket or an on/off switch but the SysRock and SysLite do?  Quirky design decisions.  A little common sense, please.

Really? Is it a non-standard thread, or is it also non-standard in some other awkward way?
That does seem a bit of an odd thing to do. I'd considered a Duo, but I'd want to be able to attach it to all sorts of combinations of photographic tripods, booms and contraptions that I already have access to.

With regard to an on/off switch for the Duo, is there any reason - apart from the feeling that perhaps one shouldn't have to, and voiding any warranty of course - one could not (or should not) introduce an in-line switch into the cable?

Nope, no internal battery for the Sys-Rock. You can use AC power or a Festool flat pack battery.

And, the DUO does not have a standard thread/socket. Correct.

One last question about the SYS-ROCK. Does it come with a DC adapter or do I have to purchase a separate one? Either generic or Festool? Thanks!

Let me verify, but I do not believe it comes with an auto adapter. It does come with a plug for use with AC power.

Yes, AC adapter included.

Also confirmed no auto adapter. The SysRock is 18v internally and auto is usualy 12v so not compatible.

It's not really a U.S. version it's just the original sysrock that we've had here for a year or more. In sure in a years time you'll have the new version we've just got. That's if you use DAB in the States I don't know ??

We finally implemented chip readers for our credit cards in 2016. 
So, yeah, the only DAB we do is a drug or a dance. 😂

Honestly, we do have something similar, HD Radio.  But no end user, and I mean no end user, utilises it.  Youngsters stream on their phones.  Elders either stick to analog or pay a premium for a subscription satellite service.

Thank you Gerry; I'd missed that earlier thread re. the Duo.

The baseplate opens up some possibilities - as @PreferrablyWood was planning - especially as in stock form it appears the Duo cannot be tilted on its own tripod; I would like sometimes to be able to 'bounce' the light off of a ceiling.

. Hah, I posted this exact request in the Festool Wish section for a modified tri-pod that would allow just this.  I knew going in when buying my Duo about the mounting and non-Tilting , but hope someone comes up with a clever mod for the Tilt portion.

@escan, welcome to the forum.

The AirStream batteries do not appear to feature a belt clip.

However, the PDC has an integrated belt clip on it. You can see them in Peter's review video at the 14:30 mark.

Shane,

I may have missed it in the video... do you know if the SysRock will charge your phone will plugged into it (and while the SysRock is plugged into the power source)?


Just to confirm the dab radio will charge phones over the USB. I picked one up last weekend at a tool show- first to enter the country the rep said. So far been happy with it. The dab and phone charging capabilities is worth the upgrade in my opinion.

Just to be clear, the *new* DAB+ version of the SYSROCK BR 10 available in Europe can charge a mobile device via an integrated USB port. The non-DAB+ version of the BR 10 (which I believe is what will be sold in the US) does not have this capability.

That's correct. The version sold in NA is SYSROCK BR 10. Only the SYSROCK BR 10 DAB+ has the integrated USB interface.

So much for buying one of these.

Friendly reminder!

The new Sys-Rock radio, AirStream charger and batteries, and Domino connectors begin shipping on Monday.

Please note that we just learned from Festool that some of the updated cordless tools, which will now include Airstream batteries and charger, will be delayed by about a week. The expected ship date for these are noted on our website. This does not affect the Airstream batteries and chargers themselves.
