Does the job

Brett, B&H Photo
3 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought these for a few of my offices to use as emergency radios. Although the flashlight could be brighter, it is a bonus as all I needed was the NOAA weather radio. Crank supplies good power and the unit is very compact.
  • Pros: Easy On/Off

A Gift

Yolanda Ruiz, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: Bought this as a gift for both my sister and mother. Due to power outages, this has become a go to product that they have both used and comes in handy! Great product even though the plastic covering does feel cheap.

Nice design but reception sensitivity could be better

Luckster, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: I like the design and the DC port for charging through a mini USB is useful. In the area where I use it some FM stations have weak signals sometimes even with a long audio cable attached to the headphones the reception is not consistently good. I just have to switch to other radio stations when that happens. I would have preferred to have the micro USB instead of the mini USB.

Eton FRX1 Radio

HJZ, REI
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Used it on a remote island hunting trip for news and weather. Station adjusting is like many small radios that have a small tuner knob, sensitive.
  • Pros: Generator, Good Receiver
  • Cons: Bulky, Touchy Tuner

Lousy reception? Charge the battery and be amazed.

P. Drew, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I love this! Yes, the tiny dial screen sucks, but that is only an issue if you want a specific station tuned in. Otherwise, this is a great beach or camping radio. If reception gets lousy, CHARGE THE RADIO. I was frustrated by losing reception and lots of static when I had previously been crystal clear at the same beach. The radio just made static farting sounds (to the great amusement of 10 year old boys), then I thought about the battery.

Worthless in any color

Dr. Huber "Huberto", Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: Reception is poor even under ideal conditions, weather band is mute. Station selection is hit and miss at best. Speaker is a screeching dime-store monstrosity. To call the crank-charge a turbine is a poor joke - on us as consumers. How the American Red Cross got roped into supporting this piece of *** is hard to understand. Save your money for something better, sold with less hype and more quality.
