Summary: This is a nice looking radio, but radio reception is pathetic, I live near Washington, DC, and it gets one AM spanish station, and one FM station. It does get one weather station, and it does respond to weather alerts. That is the good?
Summary: It does not recharge the mobile phone directly. It indirectly recharges it thru the phone bank. I want to see this changed in the future. I want this device to be able to directly charge the mobile phone.
Summary: The design needs work: it's too easy to unknowingly hit the 'on' button for the flashlight and completely drain the charge without even knowing it.

Summary: I bought one of these FRX2 radios for testing in remote areas of Colombia (South America) because of having the novelty of multiple charging options. In reality, however, the solar panel is minute (probably about 0.05 watts?
Summary: I have collected many radios over the years, and this is one of the worst ones I have ever used. The antenna is too small to receive any weather broadcasts, while other radios I have bring in 3 or 4 weather channels where I am. Lousy AM and FM tuning. It went back.
