Does the job

Brett, B&H Photo

  • 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 very useful item

Not a big fan

okiejoe1st, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: We bought it because my daughter wanted a flight light she could wind up herself like my son's lego flashlight. Well the thing lasted two weeks then it broke. Now here is why I gave 3 stars versus 1 because you are able to charge the device via a computer. I say that but if you don't remember to put it on the charger then you have a dead device. The radio works fine. I won't be buying a Eton product again.

Nice design but reception sensitivity could be better

Luckster, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • 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.

A Gift

Yolanda Ruiz, Amazon

  • 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 for extreme emergencies, but could use some little tweaks here and there

Planet Residence, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: I guess this is ok for what you need it for when the conditions are at its worse. Yeah it could use some improvements. I think a nice improvement would be a lanyard so that it can be hung from a pole or hook. I went to a sporting goods store and saw this one. It had a flashlight and radio on the same piece. I didnt look online for one......but I think I will now. I may see what other little goodies are on other units. But like I said......a lanyard on it really helps.

Touchy

25 June 2013
  • Summary: Very precise adjustments required to dial in a station. Also, if youre wondering, this does NOT have a usb charging option for your phone. I would recommend you drop the extra coin for that feature.
