A great value, and an even better radio.

  • Excerpt: When it arrived it was a little smaller than I expected, but that was actually a plus. It takes up less counter space. I liked the USB port on the side, if you have a power outage, you can charge your phone with it, and if the radio goes dead, it has a hand crank that will charge the battery back up. You can either use the hand Mic to transmit, or unplug it and use the PTT button on the radio itself.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life

Good Radio That Would Benefit From Improvements

  • Summary: The Midland XT511 GMRS Two-Way Emergency Crank Radio is a power packed radio full of functionality. You get GMRS/FRS with privacy codes, FM/AM radio stations, NOAA weather radio with alerts, clock with an alarm, VOX, and a flashlight. There is a Dynamo crank for battery charging capabilities as well as a USB jack for charging a mobile phone. I like that fact that you can use the NiMH battery pack or 4 AA batteries.

  • Pros: Lightweight, Long Battery Life
