  • Summary: This was a gift for my mother which she has loved more than anything else I gave her. I just wish the price was a bit lower.

Excellent product

Kenneth J. Foster, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: We bought this item to supplement our way to receive information and to provide a power source to even charge cellular communications or other USB devices. The hand crank and the solar charging are options to have in extended power outages. Its small size and durability make it the choice to carry when you have limited space.

Very finicky, may not work when you need it most, but could do in a pinch if you knew its flaws.

J. Rasmussen, Amazon
6 August 2013
  • Summary: I wanted a small all-in-one device in an emergency and to take camping, but this has many many drawbacks to be an effective emergency tool, and might just fail you when you need it most. CONS -Solar panel *only* charges the proprietary battery, not the 3x AAAs (if using rechargeables) or the USB. -The *only* way to charge the USB is via the hand crank. You CANNOT charge your USB device off the internal battery, AAAs, or solar.

Eton Solarlink FR360 Self Powered radio

F. L. Farrar "Fearless Floyd", Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the Eton Solarlink FR360 as a backup for emergencies after much investigation. The biggest share of the reviews were positive. It is WAY too complicated to use WITHOUT taping an instruction manual to the back of it! That SHOULD NOT be needed! Alas after a few months of ownership I now have a 50 dollar door stop! Nothing works on the darn thing anymore and new batteries DO NOT help! I have tried all their tips and NOTHING works! Beware..

Buyer beware!

UnhappyinFLA, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: Owned this radio for a couple of years now. Very sporadic use. Kept it safely stored in the original box most of that time (without the AAA batteries installed). Now cannot switch from DYN/SOL to BATT. Even with three fresh AAA batteries installed. Cranking the darn thing for the recommend 90 seconds the radio still will not play. When it did work it quickly went through AAA batteries faster than I could buy them. If I ever need this POS in an emergency I am screwed!

  • Summary: I like the diversity of the radio, and it is compact with many functions which all work. We have compared it with other small radios and the sound is good as well.

Perfect

Holly Johnson, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought 3 of these weather radios to try and this is the winner. I needed one that got good Am reception too and this radio was able to pull in more stations than the eaton or the lacrosse radio..
