  • Summary: I have had this item for a few years, now... The radio still seems to work good, but the water-resistant coating has now started to deteriorate, leaving sticky residue on your hands when you touch it.

Good product and great customer service

Larry, Amazon
6 February 2012
  • Summary: When I purchased this radio I checked all of the advertised functions and they all worked as the product manual said they would. The only thing lacking was the correct tip to charge my Nokia cell phone, which was promptly supplied by mail.

Doing well after 5 years

Doxycycline, Amazon
23 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought this about 5 years ago as an emergency radio/flashlight and just today broke it out to see if it was still working. I live in Modesto, California and am pleased to report that radio reception was just fine (with the notable exception of shortwave, see below).

American Red Cross FR350 Emergency Radio

mirotrav, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: Amazing thing: very well built-up in general, nicely tuned with a good, i.e. solid, crank mechanism. Not sure about its water resistance though - will check this spring. As the radio will be used in Russia - will need to get a 220 AC adapter. Recommended!

Immediate Failure

JohnLM, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: Bought this radio because we have had frequent power outages. Batteries have limited shelf life so the crank charger was the draw. Plus it included the ability to charge phones. Tested the radio OK after purchase and then put it away for the next power failure.

american red cross radio

mike, Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: I have bought this radio for others as a gift. No one has complained yet, so I'm guessing it's an ok product as of this date 7-17-2010. The price was right. I searched for the best price on this model of radio. I have one myself, but I've not used it much. I bought it in case of a power outage. mike

Product long discontinued--may be battery issues

Paul S., Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: On first unpacking mine, it would play for only a few seconds after cranking for two minutes. A call to Eton (800-872-2228) revealed that the model has been discontinued for 4-5 years, and the built-in NIMH battery pack had expired. They sent me a new battery with no hassle, and it works fine. Paul

Almost perfect

R. Hiestand, Amazon
4 November 2009
  • Summary: As an emergency radio, I find it important to have multiple power sources. This one works great. Also the ability to charge a cell phone is great. You do have to tell the company which phone you have and they'll send you the appropriate adapter.

Nice

Blaz Toups, Amazon
3 October 2009
  • Summary: Nice radio, nice size, good sound and the light is great. Hard to turn on and tune, but does a good job of what I wanted it for. Just the ticket for when the lights go out, and you on you own.

First Impressions

Ursus Somnolicus, Amazon
13 January 2009
  • Summary: This is a solid unit! The case is not brittle, shiny plastic but a dense, rubbery material that should be able to take some punishment. Handle the antenna and dynamo crank carefully and this radio should last a long time. Night time AM reception is stellar.
