  • Summary: Product was as described, but we couldn't use. The radio dial markings are indeed small, I would say tiny and were very difficult to read. Additionally there is no dial back light and since we couldn't see the dial in the light we felt it would impossible to use in the dark in an emergency...

Not a good design for hurricanes

AuntB, Amazon
16 May 2015
  • Summary: As many reviewers have written, the operating buttons are under the handle. They are very small and are marked with very small print. I had to hold the unit under a lamp and tip the unit to read the print.

Nice looking radio but...

  • 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?

Editing the Device

Matthew Edmond Dockery, Amazon
19 March 2015
  • 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.

Ok for weather alerts, but dumb design flaw

VixensMomma, Amazon
14 March 2015
  • 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. Very frustrating to leave it sitting in the sun, thinking it's charging, only to find out it's also shining its not very bright flashlight, which you...

  • Summary: I bought two Eton emergency radios, one for home, one for work. We are very careful with our things (I have some old boom boxes from back in the day that still work pretty well)! The home radio only picks up one FM station, and can't be tuned.
