Bluetooth Wireless Technology

Going wireless is always the better way to go for worksite radios and Ion Job Rocker has presented us with such. You can pair any Bluetooth device with the Ion Job Rocker to play your music from those devices. Since it uses Bluetooth, no physical connections or wires will be used.

Your iPhone, iPad or Android device may even be 100 feet away from the Job Rocker, and it will still continue playing. Besides its Bluetooth connection feature, it also has a built-in radio, AM or FM. It also has six preset buttons to save your favorite stations.

It also has two AC outlets that can be used to power other tools or recharge any tool or device. The 50-watt batteries are rechargeable, of course.

Ion Audio iPA30 Reviews

From a total of 332+ reviews on Ion Job Rocker, it earned an editor rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars. First and foremost, a lot of customers have found it easy to use, with a great look even if orange is not for everybody. Most of the positive reviews from customers have said that the Ion Job Rocker’s audio is loud and clear with a great bass as well.

With this loudness and clarity, it can handle playing outdoors (such as campsites, parties, and even volleyball games) or indoors, basically, every environment, as stated by another customer. Some of the customers have also noted that there were no distortions even at high volumes. Customers have also confirmed that the batteries do last long.

Things to Improve

Amongst all the positive reviews given by the customers, some of the flaws or downsides of the product were also raised. One of the issues raised by some of the customers were the AC outlets. Although Ion made it clear that the AC outlets will not be active unless the Job Rocker is also plugged in, some customers were disappointed that the Job Rocker cannot use its batteries to power the outlets.

A second issue is its weight. Again, Job Rocker weighs 21 pounds, although it is entirely portable, some customers have complained that it was heavy to carry around.


Ion Audio iPA30 Job Rocker indeed is a great worksite radio that uses Bluetooth technology to keep things wireless and hassle-free in the workshop. With its long-lasting batteries that can last for two-straight days, the men and women who use it will be able to enjoy it’s loud and clear sound during work or their after work activities.

And with its durability through its chrome-steel make as well as its rugged steel handles and protective corner bumpers, you would not have to worry about using it in the workshop, indoors and outdoors. With this, we most definitely think that Ion Audio iPA30 is worth it. Do check out other best jobsite radio reviews here.
