Next to a knife, about the best survival piece of equipment you can buy
31 October 2015
Summary: I have put several of these in go packs for my kids and some friends. They are really great little units. They wind up easy, allow for phone and other usb device charging, have a clear radio with decent volume - and a place for headphones.
Summary: I wish the radio frequrency were labeled every so often instead of having to count each line. It seem to last a decent time frame. The light is nice to have as well. The day I got it I let my sister take it to work, and she ended up using it due to the weather her place was on lock down...
Summary: Bought this when my old handcrank radio broke. This needs a lot of cranking for a short amount of radio run time. The flashlight works with less cranking. Also cranking is noisy, can't go stealth with it. The frx2 comes with a solar option to recharge, I think. Maybe that would be better.
Works as advertised; essential information tool in a weather-related power outage.

Summary: I've spent a good chunk of my life in tornado country, so I've come to appreciate the importance of a weather band radio. I like that this one can be charged by the hand crank in case of a power outage (it can also be charged by the included USB cable when you have power). It works as advertised.
Summary: When I go camping and I like to take this along and it's good enough for my needs. I just want to hear the weather should I not be able to use my smartphone. Does it sound great? No. Is it a great flashlight? No.
Summary: asylum did not accept any change of frequencies to tune in a station in every time you move it to a different station would come in or you will lose a different station so it looks good on the outside but there was something wrong with the with the frequency band or the reception.... Sorry
