Noisy, & needs a lot of cranking.

  • 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: 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 .

I like the radio

  • Summary: I like the radio, and was surprised to see it has two more bands. I like the fact that my computer can charge the radio battery. The reception of the weather band is good, too.

  • Summary: I picked this up for my husband to put in his winter car break-down bag. It has since moved to the house, because the radio has better reception than my under the counter Sony in the kitchen :) Great little thing. Feels sturdy to crank. Good find!

  • Summary: Ad showed a different radio that was more capable. Still it works and the price was right. I just wish I got what I thought I was buying, not what I got.
