The power bank will keep the power on. The power bank in the emergency radio can provide emergency power to any small device. The emergency weather radio has 3 power sources that you can use when you need a boost of power or a refill. The radio's crank lever and solar panel are both capable of regenerating enough power to keep the radio, lights, and alarm ready to go when you need it most. When you can't regenerate power, you needAAA batteries. There are always power sources. Light can be provided by the emergency crank radio. If you and your loved ones are in an emergency situation, the 1W flashlight and 4 LEDs reading light will keep you out of the dark. The radio will get up to the second emergency weather forecasts and emergency news broadcasts from the National Weather Service. A limited lifetime warranty is included. Please visit the website for more information.
👤We lost all power when Hurricane Florence came into North Carolina and couldn't even use the generators for a few days. Local radio reports that during that time, we kept our phones charged in hopes of getting cell service and light back, and that the little hand crank radio was our main source of weather information. I must have turned that crank a million times, but it never failed us, and when it was all over, it went into the emergency supplies to be ready for the next one.
👤My husband received this as a Christmas gift. I should've researched it better, but we discovered there was no jack on the unit. There is no way to listen to the radio in private. The second disappointment is that when you tip up the solar panel, the light panel underneath it turns on. The solar charging purpose is defeated by totaly. There is no way to turn off the light panel. It turns on when tilted up and off when laid flat. The radio and flashlight work well. It is early to know how durable the unit will be.
👤I was sleeping when this device caught on fire.
👤You need to have a weather radio that is on all the time in order to get notifications. Apparently, this one. If you live in a part of the country where the weather is unpredictable, you should be used to hearing the drone of the National Weather Service all the time. Nope. This device has a lot of useful things, like a solar panel, but it really falls down on its main purpose, which is to sit in silence until there is a weather alert. Sending it back. No instructions come with it. The on-line manual is sub-par. My calls were dropped by the customer service line. I'm in the middle of a dangerous storm pattern and I'm annoyed and disappointed by this product.
👤One of the larger battery backups is available for it's size, about the size of your hand. The solar panel has a charging light. The crank handle is unlikely to break in use. The radio reception was good. Not all weather radios have sirens and red lights. You may get different prices for this radio because it is marketed by more than one seller.
👤If you're working on a small budget bug out bag, this is a good thing. The radio has a battery that can be charged by crank or solar power. One of the lights is bright, but the other is decent. The radio can connect to local weather broadcasts and AM or FM radio, for $20, which is pretty good. This little thing is for twenty bucks and can charge a variety of devices. This would be great for a bug out bag, or even hiking and camping, because it also has an emergency mode. If you get separated from a group, you can emit a loud sirens and flash a red light.
👤This was purchased for a trip to Philmont. The unit never worked. At one point, the scouts took turns cranking it. It's complete waste of money. The unit is light and flimsy. It was impossible to charge anything with it. It wouldn't hold a charge, so it couldn't be used for the radio. Customer service was a joke, argued with me that there were so many other "neat" specifications on this piece of junk that I should have been happy to just put batteries in it and enjoy the radio. Great. I paid almost 40 bucks for a radio. It was a disappointment. It was too late to send back the item my kid got back from the camping trip. Customer support was not good. Do. Not. Buy. I went to Walmart to get one. We did that for our first Scout who went to Philmont. It at least worked. It worked well. We tried to save money with this thing. I only gave it one star because you have to write a review. 5 stars for this piece of junk.
The flashlight is impact resistant up to 1 meter. Ultra Bright and 8 hour play time. The main light can light up for 4 hours of strong light and up to 40 hours of low light. The flashlight can light up for up to 8 hours of strong light and up to 35 hours of low light with enough battery capacity. It's perfect for outdoor and indoor purposes. 3000 large capacity batteries and solar panel are built into the Mesqool camping lanterns. It can be charged by regular 5V charging cable and also by solar and hand cranking when the power is out. The option to use windup power for weather emergencies is provided by the dynamo Crank. The large capacity battery has a charging port. The camping lantern has a large capacity battery that can boost a dead phone. You can charge your mobile phone or other devices with theusb port. The lantern is portable and easy to operate, you can click the flashlight button to turn on or off the main light. What's more, it's only 3.11inch,weighing 0.296 kilogram. You can either carry it or hang it on any hooks you can find. The Camping lantern is a great company to work for. One-year warranty and no-Worry after-sale service.

👤Customer service was great in getting me a refund and I gave it 2 stars. If you have an iPhone, I would avoid this lantern. I think they are being a bit deceptive with their advertising. They don't specify where this lantern will not charge an iPhone, and the only area I could see where it says "charges android phones" is hidden very deep in the description. This made it very frustrating when I took a camping trip out to Utah, expecting to charge my phone at night using this lantern, only to find out it doesn't work. The lantern is okay. It is bright initially, but it does not last the duration advertised. It might last 1 hour before the brightness goes down to useless. The solar charging is nice, but not much else. It would be a good idea to try a different lantern.
👤I was looking for a lantern that could be used as a backup source of light and could also be used for solar charging. If you need more power during the night time, this lantern has a hand-crank. It meets the need beautifully. It is a bright white light. It has a light on the end that can be used as a flashlight or down light. I would prefer a warm hue to the light, but this will meet my needs in an emergency power-down situation.
👤I charged the product and put it aside for normal use. The lantern wouldn't work the first time I tried it, because I didn't hold a charge. I tried to use the hand crank but it broke and is no longer usable. Very cheap.
👤I ordered these for 2 homeless brothers who were homeless due to the end of daylight savings. They were estactic to have light and are really enjoying the ability to charge the light with solar power or with a crank. When the power goes out, I will be adding a few more.
👤The product seems like a good idea with three charging methods but the internal battery can't possibly live up to the claims. The main light can light up for 4 hours of strong light and up to 40 hours of low light, and it has 12 LED bulbs. I timed it twice. It was at zero light for four hours. 1.5 hours of bright light. Returned the two I bought.
👤I like the light. It stays charged for hours because the crank charges it so fast. I haven't used the plug in or solar charge functions yet. It does charge my phone and tablets, all I have to do is crank it up. It's great for emergencies and camping, and no more spending money on batteries that go dead and have to be thrown away. I'm getting one for each of my boys and grandbabies.
👤I bought for camp. The flashlight part works well, but the charging part isn't reliable and didn't charge my phone well
👤I bought one for myself and one for my son-in-law. I was amazed at how easy it was to use. My son-in-law played with it all day. It's great to take out to the barn when it's dark or to the storm cellar during a storm. It is small enough to fit on my night table. I put it in my car when I go on long trips. I can't believe how good this is and how useful it is. I will give this again.
Every home needs a best lantern. Perfect gifts for men, family, and friends, whether as a work light, book light, or reading light. Hurricanes, storms, hiking, camping, fishing, boating, car auto emergency light, shed, attic, garage and power cuts are just some of the things that have happened. When the weather is bad, you should have an emergency kit. The set of 4 crank lights have a few cranks. Great for emergency use, camping, home, office, car, and many more. There is an On/Off switch, a Crank Lock toggle and a Carry Strap. Batteries are not required. The Light has two powerful lights. The dimensions are 4 inches long by 2 inches wide and 1 inch tall.

👤The product uses batteries, 3 coin cells to be specific. Pull the switch back and you can use the built in batteries to power the switch and take the batteries out of the loop. The batteries can't be charged or squeezed while they're on the battery. You need to squeeze the lever more than once per second to keep the lights on. Changing the batteries for fresh ones is technically possible but it would be cheaper and quicker to build your own flash light out of duct tape and 3 AA batteries. It would be unpleasant to use for more than a few seconds, as it would cause eye strain, and it produces enough light to not run in to walls. I am using this as a demo generator and not as a light because I want to do that job at a very low price. If you are planning on using this for an electronics science project, the rest of this review is technical data. The crank outputs unrectified AC power. The max performance appears to be around 3V rms open circuit, 80mA rms closed circuit, and runs around 300 Hz. The circuit has two white LEDs connected in parallel to one another and one lead connected to a spdt slide switch that connects to a battery or generator. The LEDs are bright on the battery. The generator outputs a max of 3V rms which is 4.3v peak, but it's not on AC so the lights are off most of the time. The straight DC from the batteries is at 50% brightness. The flickering is not visible to human eyes without tricks. You can see a trail behind the light that leaves a trail behind it. On battery it leaves a trail, on manual power it leaves a trail.
👤The light can't be powered by squeezing the handle. The only thing that does anything is light the weak LEDs. The light cannot be charged by exercising the handle. When you flip the switch, there is light from three button cells. The batteries are non-rechargeable and there is no Capacitor inside. You are not going to have light when you run out of batteries. Look at the wire connecting the batteries to the dynamo and compare it to the thin wires to the switch. The design makes you keep the light initially. This is worse than not having a backup because you will discover that when it's too late. Sorry seller, it is not fair to us consumers.
👤I bought them for our kits. They were the only squeeze dynamo flashlights I could find. I have an old bulb that works well when you squeeze it. It would work better with LEDs. I am disappointed. There are batteries in there. I wanted to know how the continuous light part worked. There are three buttons. Over time, these will ruin the purpose of the light. The light goes off when you squeeze the dynamo. The light on my older one is not continuous. Even at full brightness, it is surprisingly dim. It is better than nothing, but not much. The construction is typical chineesium garbage. It will break after very limited use. It is going to break, they lie about no battery, and it does a poor job. These are disposable toys. Don't put them in a stocking after New Years. I will be looking for replacements.
If you're not 100% satisfied with the product, you can get a full money back guarantee. There is a bright led wheelbarrow. The solar powered torch light has a bulb that shines brighter than other small flashlights. It can be put in the sun or wind it up. EFFICIENT: 1 hour of light is generated by 6min of winding or cranking. You always have a charged self powered flashlight source ready, because the internal battery stores solar and cranking power. A carabiner that can be used on a backpack or a key chain makes it easy to travel with your flashlight. There are outdoor supplies. It's the perfect addition to your survival gear. The no battery spotlight is a must have. It is guaranteed that the SATISFACTION will be positive. If you don't like your flashlight, return it for a full refund. It is guaranteed that the SATISFACTION will be positive. If you don't like your flashlight, return it for a full refund.
👤There was a lot of trouble Friday. I thought I was smart because I had a big Coleman lantern and had already filled it with batteries. I was wondering why they made it so complicated. And heavy? I don't see it charging in any way. The power goes out and I grab a lantern. So angry. I immediately warned others when the power came back on. I saw that its small lights need batteries and screws, as well as its compartment needs screws. In an emergency or camping, who needs that? These little lights were found when I looked for something better. They came on Sunday, thanks to Amazon. I remember the box from Amazon when the power went out again. Pull the wrapper off and crank the little light up. Turn on the switch and light up! The power came back before it went out. I had to tell you that this is the one to buy and keep around the house. I bought four of them. I will put them in every room, every car. It's too easy to crank and leave it in the window. It's perfect for camping. So happy! This is the one I tried and it was not the winner of the lantern contest. Being able to stand it on end is the only thing that would make it better.
👤I thought there was more than one pack. There is only one. No one else was expecting that, so I put it in the reviews. It seems like a great product, but I haven't used it yet.
👤I bought this because it was cheap, but I hope it works. I carry this in my bag all the time, even though I didn't expect much. It's a small flashlight that is very bright and has a solar/crank. The light that is emitted is focused and not as broad as a broad stream. I used it many times during my backpacking trip to help me navigate the dark streets. It's small and lightweight, the clip is sturdy, and it gets the job done. It would be great to have an emergency flashlight in your car. Absolutely recommend.
👤I bought an O.D. green about 7 years ago. A month ago, I bought two yellow ones. The O.D. and yellow flashlights are the same, but different brands. The green light is not as bright as the yellow one. The lights are brighter when the crank is in motion. The green older one is only half the brightness. The lights were on for eight hours. The lights only lasted for four hours, after that it was a dim useless glow. The light is light and plastic, so I wouldn't recommend using a hard constant cranking to charge the battery as the plastic gears are prone to failure. My conclusion. Modern technology has improved the quality of the light. It's good for a real emergency or back up.
👤The light holds the charge well. When I got it, I didn't crank it for a while, but I turned it on 3 days later and it still has a bright light. I left it on for about 5 minutes the first day to see if it worked. I ordered another one to keep in the car but I want my mom to have one for her car, so I'm going to buy another one. It's small and light and can be carried in my purse. I like the hand crank ones because you don't have to search for a battery for them when they have sat a year or more. The flashlight gives off a bright beam of light, so it could be used as a regular flashlight. We spent a week without power due to a snow storm, so I wanted more flashlight.
Their promise is that you will get the best tactical flashlight and user manual. Within 24 hours of customer service, there is a replacement service. The hand crank flashlight does not require batteries or electricity. You will never run out of light when you use the solar panel and windup hand crank. It is possible to charge the flashlight in the sun for 30 minutes or 40 hours of direct sunlight. If the solar battery runs low, the winding hand crank should be turned on for 1 minute to generate power for 8 minutes. You will always have a charged light with you. The carabiner clip makes it easy to hang, store or carry a compact light. You can easily clip this flashlight to a backpack, bag, belt loop, or key chain to have with you for emergencies. Adding power outages to your emergency kit is also a great idea. The dimensions are 478 inches x 1.77 inches x 1.26 inches. 3 ounces is the weight. 100,000 hours is the lifespan of the flashlight.

👤I wanted to know how bright the light was and how long it would last. The flashlight was left in the window for a month to fully charge the battery. I guess. There is no charge indicator. At 5:00 AM, it was tested inside. The sun hadn't risen. The drapes were not open. I was impressed. It would illuminate objects about 20 feet away. It lasted for about 30 minutes. It went down to about 15 feet for the next 15 minutes. It dropped to about 10 feet for the next 15 minutes. It was no longer putting out usable light after that. This was inside the house. The light would be more diffuse outside where the results would be less good. I wanted to see if I could charge with the crank. The flashlight was left on to draw down the charge. It was still putting out light after 24 hours. You could still see the lights were on. The flashlight was turned on for 5 minutes. The results were not very good. At less than 5 feet from an object, the flashlight was more than just a light. Normally the solar charge is for emergency use only, but in this case it seems to be different. I'm not sure if the dynamo needs to break in. If you can leave this in the sun to fully charge most of the time, but in a true emergency, you might be better off looking for a better solution. Testing will continue.
👤It was bought. The brightness was tested. It was mediocre. It was ranked to replenish. Let it go on and off. Next day, put it on the window sill. It was mediocre low-light. Put in a backpack. Since light was packed, no other use was made of the strap ring on the backpack today. I decided to refresh some of the canned foods. I thought I would crank the light to make sure the light would be charged if I ever needed to use the emergency pack. About the tenth spin, I broke. I bought others to give as gifts. If they break on the second crank cycle, I will be in hot water. Done with the lights. Was not of any money.
👤I had given it a 5-star review but I don't think it should break by three months. I was going to buy another or even a couple as gifts because it did work well, but suddenly stopped. Products that break within 3 months are not available.
👤The second time I used it, it broke. The first time, the crank charger worked well. It was ranked for 60 seconds to see what it would do. Definitely charges the battery. It does work as advertised, even though I only use it for a short time. It was left to charge by solar for a few days. The bright light went to half brightness before the battery ran out. The cranking got very easy and much less loud after I tried to charge it again, but the light was not bright enough. To get the desired quality, you need to find one for more than $100.

👤California has a way of life where power is out. I had an emergency kit with a cheap radio. The power went out for the first time last summer. I got about 30 seconds of radio when I turned it on. I needed to get serious about providing for emergencies after two days of no power, no wi-fi, and no cell phone, so I ordered this model. This model is easy to crank, holds the charge, has a solar panel as a secondary source, and a bright light.
👤This is a small radio. It can be used to charge your phone, flashlight, and reading light.
👤There is a cute little radio. A compass on the handle strap and a reading light are just a few of the unique options this weather radio has. Plug it in with the charging cord or use the crank handle for an instant charge if it's fully charged in less than 30 minutes. When you're out camping, you don't need to worry about a low battery because you can charge your phone from the radio. This is a great gift because of the tough plastic body and easy to use features. The national weather channel is easy to tune in. You can watch the video for more details and a live action review of the features.
👤After testing the solar and crank charging for two days, the radio played for about 30 seconds each time and the crank charging worked only for five minutes, no charge!
👤I'm so happy I got this. I did the first full charge. The light is bright. The radio volume is great. The tuning dial is difficult and may need a secondary knob like a lot of shortwave radios. The alarm will sound and blow out your ear wax. My dog was scared outta my dog. I think this was a great investment to provide peace of mind over the winter, out in the wild, in any weather emergency. It was a good price and product.
👤The radio is large. It has a great sound. It sounds good for a small speaker, and loud so you don't need to be close to it to hear it. The solar feature works well in partial sunlight or ambient light. There is a The 2000mh Li Ion battery has a good amount of power. The solar and Li Ion have been adequate for me. There are two flashlight in it. One is a reading light that can light up a small room with soothing light and the other is a regular flashlight that is better than my mag light. There is a short wave and weather. I don't think a loud siren will be of use to me. It can charge a cell phone. The dial for finding stations is a bit odd, but I don't care about that. You have to turn it slowly and in small amounts. The radio is hard plastic and can break if you drop it. It's important to be careful where you place it. The bottom line. If you are looking for a nice little radio with multiple charging options and quality devices, this is it. I paid a bit more for the others, but I think it was worth it.

The fail-safes in the smart protection chip protect your lantern from overcharging, over-discharging and over-circuiting.
👤This was purchased to modify and install a led inside. It was made well and it was decent made. The battery is a hybrid. The led was wired in and I measured the voltage. On low: 2.68v, on high: 3.06. A generic chip is mounted on a star board. It is likely capable of more power. It has two modes, a low and a high. The feature is nice, but just 30 seconds of cranking will get you a decent run time. It was on for over five minutes on low. There are 3 tiny screws that hold the top part of the lantern down. It is possible that it may get pulled off over time. It is well constructed and the price is not too bad.
👤Let the light shine! My previouslantern style light used non-rechargeable batteries and was big and bulky. When I needed to change out my cable in the attic, I found this light to be a great light. It's perfect for other needs when a flashlight isn't right. I put this in a clear plastic bag and hang it on a command hook on the back of the bathroom doors, so I will know where it is if the power goes out. I will put one in each of the vehicles glove boxes. I didn't receive this product for free or at a reduced price, so I didn't make an "unbiased" review. I paid for it myself. I did not receive compensation to review the product. The above review is my opinion after using the product. So there!
👤These are my first impressions after receiving this light. I will update this review after camping. It was a little smaller than I expected, at 3 1/2 inch diameter and 5 1/2 inch tall. It is 5.90oz and weighs 0.270 lbs. After only a few minutes of "winding," it was brighter than I had expected. I didn't like the plastic that was used in the lantern because it was thin and easily creased when the halves were pulled apart. I believe that over time, this will tear or wear into it. .... The lantern cost a little more than other sources but it feels better made to me. I think that I can replace the diffuser with milk jug plastic if it does fail, since it will save the lantern for use but lose the compactness of collapsing it. I have some small battery lanterns that use a spring and a cloth tube, I may look into doing something similar if the need arises.
👤One of the most useful items I've ever purchased! It was in time for a power outage last winter. I was able to use the solar panel I bought to hook up theusb charging device because I was able to crank them for good power lighting most of the time. The panel in my south-facing kitchen window gave me a lot of light in both compressed and expanded mode. I'm buying more. These should be in the emergency kit or go-bag.
Can tolerate temperatures from -40 F to 230 F. The emergency crank radio can receive broadcasts from AM/FM/ SW/NOAA certified radio.

👤This is a slightly improved version of the Mesqool CR 1009Pro that I bought last year. Better radio tuning. The documentation has been improved with information on battery life and charging times using the hand crank, built-in solar cell, or the fastest cable. This one does not include the AC plug. It would make it 6 ways to power this little guy. The Li-Ion battery level is specified on the display. The flashlight and reading light work well, as does the radio tuner, allowing both single step changes and scanning to the next available station. Sound is okay, but use headphones for better sound and longer battery life. I like the case. A good deal.
👤The Emergency Alert Radio is great for hikers, bikers, walkers, and just plain sitters because of its ability to operate on multiple power sources. If AC power is not available, multiple types of batteries provide the power and as backup, a hand crank and/or solar panel can charge the batteries. Guidance on battery life is provided by the instructions. If the light level is reduced, there are multiple flashlight options. When the cell phone's battery is low, the units can charge it. All in all. What a great product.
👤The emergency radio has a lot of nice features, like a flashlight, different radio frequencies, and different ways to charge the battery, which is really nice if the power goes out. It is portable and has a strap to carry it. There are several ways to charge-crank and plug. There is a spot light and a reading light.
👤The weather radio is easy to use and reliable. I was waiting for some bad weather so I could get an alert. We did a couple of days ago. The radio is working. It seems the volume only goes to "16", it could be louder for us to drown out the excess noise in our house. The flashlight feature is very useful.
👤It is incredibly useful when out and about, like a Swiss army knife. It has a radio, a torch, an emergency beacon, and a 5000 mah battery, which is enough to charge your devices off, and it has a reading light, too. The + - Volume buttons are the only thing that needs to be changed.
👤I put the batteries in the unit. I returned the unit because the flashlight functions worked perfectly. The lighting functions were excellent, especially the broad area lamp under the solar panel. The unit was very strong.
👤Would not be able to power up. We returned it.
👤The features are considering the size. 4 ways to power it is very forward thinking. I can't wait to see what this company comes up with. Nice job!
Their lights last a long time and are always used every night. There is a bright led wheelbarrow. The solar powered torch light has a bulb that shines brighter than other small flashlights. It can be put in the sun or wind it up. EFFICIENT: 1 hour of light is generated by 6min of winding or cranking. You always have a charged self powered flashlight source ready, because the internal battery stores solar and cranking power. A carabiner that can be used on a backpack or a key chain makes it easy to travel with your flashlight. There are outdoor supplies. It's the perfect addition to your survival gear. The no battery spotlight is a must have. It is guaranteed that the SATISFACTION will be positive. If you don't like your flashlight, return it for a full refund.
👤This is a good product for a small amount of money. It has an internal battery. You can charge the device with a crank or solar power. We bought them to keep in the car. The instructions say to crank the handle for a minute every 3 months. That is easy to figure out. I don't know if you have to do that if it's kept where the solar is constantly topping it off. If you have a car dash, most likely you need to give it some cranks. It is a test. The unit came with a charge, but I turned it on for a few minutes and then left the room. I used it overnight and it was still light when I woke up in the morning. Went back to bed after giving it a 30-second crank. It had a very faint light in the morning. The PROS Light-weight Hand crank is smooth and seems solid, even though it is a little stiff at first. It's nice to have a flashing in case you need it, but the solar panel should only be charged one bulb or 3 bulb setting. It would be hard to accidentally turn on CONS if the button was pressed on and off. I have two of these, one has a black part that makes it wobbly when you crank it, and the other does not, so I may ask the company to replace it. Maybe it lasted so long because it was on a charge.
👤The PrimalCamp hand crank light is half the light of the Thorfire one. The circle is half lit compared to the full circle, and the brightness is very dull. I need that extra brightness in an emergency, but it is 10 dollars cheaper than the Thorfire. It does last a long time compared to other crank lights, but I was disappointed when I compared it to my other light which has the same features. The instructions looked similar to the factory instructions. There are other hand crank lights that are much brighter and last just as long, but it does function and give you a decent light source. The left side of the picture shows the PrimalCamp and the right shows the Thorfire.
👤The flashlight is amazing. It's well built and gets power from a solar panel or hand crank. It's also waterproof which is an added bonus. I've bought several of these types of flashlights off of Amazon and this one is the best. I bought a few to put in my cars and house. This is a must have.
👤The little thing did five months in the jungle. It's tough and durable. I've dropped it at least a hundred times, once into a creek, and smashed it into trees and doorways. The solar panel seems to be for show only and as best I can tell it's worse than useless, taking the place of a belt clip. Informal testing showed that leaving the light out in the sun or putting it away didn't affect the battery's performance. It can be used as a reading lamp at night, because it can be turned back on in less than a minute and stay that way for an hour. The sound of a crank at night is attractive to children, drunks and random creatures, which made for some interesting experiences. It's too heavy to wear on a hat and not being able to use it hands-free is its only major flaw. I used a length of string through it so I could wear it around my neck and see my feet in the forest, but a strap would be better. It would be a critically important modern survival device if this thing could charge a phone through ausb port. It already goes everywhere with me.

The best way to help in the case of emergency power failure is to use a hand crank radio.
👤This is not an Audiophile device and that is perfectly fine as that is not the intended purpose. The speaker and audio quality is not great. The 5000mAh battery has a decent amount of power to give hours of bright light from the various LEDs lamps, give hours of emergency or weather radio reception, or top off your cell phone. The audio quality of many inexpensive "pocket radios" is good, but it is not adequate for emergency news and weather. I knocked off a star for that, but it isn't the greatest, and probably would have increased the price a bit - a fair tradeoff. The fold-out solar cell is larger in surface area than most single cells on other radios, so it can be used to charge its battery in a reasonable amount of time. That is what you really need from such a device in an emergency where there is no other power source. It would take more than a full day for a single small cell radio to be charged. It is a reliable go-to device when you need it. It won't change your life, but it may be a lifesaver when you need it the most.
👤The emergency radio works. It can be charged with a hand crank, batteries or a plug. During the last winter storm, I used it. The house was blacked out after a few trees fell over our power lines. I pulled out the Emergency Radio to listen to music and get the weather updates when internet and cable were down. The Emergency Radio has a flashlight with two settings that was useful for getting around the house and cooking on the gas stove. The device has a power meter that you can use to monitor the battery life. I like to keep the battery charged until our electricity came back on.
👤I was impressed by the two radios I received. It's larger than most solar panels. When AC power is not available, you can use solar, but it will take all day and part of another day to get the radios charged. AC power was used to finish the recharging. The NOAA Weather Radio station, light, strobe, am/fm radio, hand crank, siren, ambiant red light, and other things are all great. Radios kept their charge for a while. I love them! So far, so good!
👤I like this little thing. The lights are bright and can be charged in many different ways. The speaker quality isn't going to impress anyone, but that's not what this type of radio is made for. I intended to use it as a camping/fishing radio, but I have been using it as a work light around the house. I would buy it again.
👤On December 11, there were 3 tornadoes that came through our town of Bowling Green. I have been looking at these weather radios for a while and I wish I would have had them. I didn't know what was happening outside during the storm because the power was out for a week. I did not have a radio or cell service. I stayed awake until 5am when I saw the first responders. Absolutely devastating. The houses were destroyed by their neighbors. I only had trees that were down. For Christmas, I bought 4 of these for my family. On New Years Day, a tornado hit our town, and my family was thrilled to have these as backup batteries for their weather radio. Thanks!

👤The radio channels were reset. I held the sos button for 3 seconds and it shut off.
👤Considering the size, the sound is better. Radio reception is good. The battery life seems to be good. The only way to program preset stations is to let it run through auto programming, which means you get a lot of preset you don't want, and have to click through them to get to the ones you want. You can't save your favorite stations like a car radio. You can double tap the up or down button to seek the next station if you want to change the frequencies one at a time.
👤A lot of features are included in a very nice product. The reception of the weather band is strong. It works great with digital tuning. It has a good sound with a lot of base. It doesn't have any private listening ability like a headphones jack or ear buds. It's a great product.
👤Thinks to like it, there are 3 ways of charging, wind up, and solar. It seems to last a while. There is a bright reading lamp. It's handy when the lights go out. The bands of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration as well. It's water proof. Sound control and minimum volume could be better. Don't expect to be able to charge it quickly. The wind up and solar are used for last resort emergencies.
👤If you want to use this in an emergency, look elsewhere, because you may want to use it for prepping for a disaster that may result in power loss. If you are looking for a good sounding speaker for camping, this will suffice. After fully charging the batter and storing it, I had to get a speaker for it, but it was almost completely drained. I have cheap cell phone battery packs that last a long time. The solar panel is too small to be reliable on solar recharging.
👤I bought this little radio for its many features, not only for the sound quality, but also for its multiple charging capabilities. I use this radio for emergencies and other outdoor activities, because it can kill regular electronics if it gets wet.
👤I've owned Block Rockers for over a decade. When I'm piddling around, I always enjoy having music outside. I was at a friend's home recently and he had a device like this. The sound quality was really good. I decided to get one of my own. I wanted to listen to both AM and FM radio. I liked the idea of being able to charge it by hand. I live in a part of the country that is prone to hurricanes. The lights made me feel better. Probably never will. They're there. The batteries of the Block Rockers always lasted more than a week at a time. The speaker had less battery life than advertised. I left my apartment early in the morning and came back later in the day and was surprised to hear the radio playing. More than 24 hours. It was still going strong. I put my Block Rocker up for sale. The speaker beats it with his hands. Stereo sound quality, light weight, and emergency ability. It is a fraction of the price.
