      Excellent weather radio

      We purchased this for hurricane Irma's imminent impact on our area. I'm a paramedic and was on duty during the entire storm. I wanted to give my family every opportunity to keep informed of weather hazards. The lithium ion battery in the unit lasts FOREVER. It has held a charge in stand by mode for just over a month now. You can charge with a mini USB, hand crank, or, the built in solar panel. Along with the lithium ion battery, you can install AA batteries. There is a little toggle switch to switch between the two. It's small, and slightly hard to get to you have fat fingers like I do, but, it's do able. It has AM, FM, and dedicated weather bands. In standby mode, when a weather alert is issued, everyone in your ZIP code will be made aware when the alert goes off. I think a few dead people woke up in the nearby cemetery. The built in LED flashlight is NUTS. That thing is so bright you might think the sun is out if you put it outside your window. This thing is incredibly rugged as well. What's the first thing my son does when I'm reading the manual? (He's 2 mind you) He picks it up and before I can say anything, he throws it across the room. Not even a single scratch. The telescopic antenna is another story. That didn't last very long before the top 2 portions broke off. The unit still works great, but the only complaint I have is the flimsy antenna. If you live in an area prone to severe weather, you need this. If you have family who live in severe weather prone areas, you need to buy this for them. This is a great product.

      We bought this prior to a camping trip not expecting to need it. But when a storm rolled with high winds and flash flood warnings, the alarm easily woke us up and we evacuated, as it is quite loud. We were in an area that lacked good cell reception and wi-fi, but we had no problem tuning in a weather station. Having a solar charger in addition to usb is highly beneficial and it seems to hold a charge for a while. My son did break the antenna right off, though, the first time he got his hands on it.

      Very Practical

      Let me start by saying that this is a very slick radio. You can powered with AA batteries, the built-in battery, the solar panel, or by plugging it in via USB. And of course, let’s not forget that nifty crank. The sound quality is better than expected forward size and the ease-of-use was natural. The reason why I could not give this radio five stars is because it does not have a programmable stations. All of the features worked as described and are very practical. No wasted space at all.

      After the missile scare in Hawaii, I realized that I was totally unprepared for an emergency. I researched emergency radios and this one does it all. Haven't needed it yet, hope I never do.

      Lots of features to have if the power goes out in compact portable size but a little difficult to use at first. Get familiar with it before you actually need it.

      Mostly pleased with this device. AM radio reception is terrible, but FM is OK. People who can't read an owner's manual may have some difficulty.
