We have been very impressed by this radio.
Build Quality :
The build quality of the radio is excellent. It's a really sturdy little machine. Not too heavy either, about the weight of a thick paperback novel.
Crank Quality :
The build quality of the crank is very good. We admittedly haven't used the radios a great deal, but the cranking mechanism feels very solid, not loose at all. The sounds of the crank turning sound precise and measured.
Battery Life :
There is no battery to speak of, but a minute of cranking provided us with more than 5 minutes of radio. I'm sure it would last even longer, but that's as long as we tested it for.
The radio is excellent. The radio picks up all the stations we're used to (CBC radio, The Beat, Virgin Radio, local stations) and the sound is very clear and loud. The NOAA Weather Bands come in fairly well. The NOAA Bands on a radio are used for emergency situations for people who didn't know. In an emergency, these bands are supposed to stay active even when other stations shut down.
It's not as bright as a 3 or more LED flashlight, but it works just fine, and would be more than sufficient in an emergency situation.
Solar Power :
Haven't tested it. It looks well built.
USB Charger :
Haven't tested it either, but it's just a simple port so I'm sure it works fine.
For the $30 we paid, we couldn't ask for a better radio for an emergency situation.Read more ›
Let me give you a little story.. Last winter the power was out in Toronto for almost a week! Well guess what I used to charge my phone and listen to the radio? Ya.. This little beast. It was great for going up and down the dark stairs of my condo with the dog since I needed a light as well.. 19 stories.. Ya..it was a leg workout three times a day! Get it.. No regrets.

Friends want me to get some three in all. This solar radio is handy.

Works well. Dials are a little small, so you can't use it with your gloves one. Not a huge problem. I like the newer dynamo on the other eton units better, but for the money. . . Read morePublished on March 14 2013 by Cold Loathing
