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: This is an average AM FM Weather radio . What I like is the flashlight with the green glow in the dark ring around the flashlight . Making it very easy to find at night time . This flashlight is very bright and as good as most led flashlights .

Oh, oh I guess it was me :(

  • Summary: Recently complained that the solar panel was cracked from inside; and I never really used it much. But, I actually crank it every week or so to keep it charged. I noticed when I was cranking it, my thumb was pressing down VERY HARD on the solar panel. Clumsy me!

  • Summary: Decent little radio. Mine has good reception, although battery charge doesnt last long, which is very disappointing. Cheaply made, very touchy to tune. Not worth over 10 bucks or so. Light is good for a cheap unit.

Hand Cranked Weather Radio Great for Emergencies

Working Mom, Amazon
9 January 2015
  • Summary: I purchased two of these small hand crank radios as a gift for a couple that I know are very prepared for emergencies. They each have back packs, with emergency supplies, hanging by the door. I thought this would be a light weight addition that wouldn't take up much room in their packs.

Good buy and realiable little radio.

Native Pheonix, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this radio on sale, near $18. It arrived on time and in new condition. I purchased it because it's small, can recharge independent of power and its abilities. I had read some of the reviews so when it arrived, I did crank it at least 60 times.

  • Summary: This is quite possibly one of the most useful things I have ever purchased. I will be getting more and stashing them in various places for emergencies. Get one and put it in your glovebox and in your emergency supplies! Highly recommended and a great price.
