This feels rather strange: being the first person to post a 5-star review who is also a Verified Purchaser.

In any event, Eton used to be the name in emergency radios. Unfortunately Eton's quality has plummeted in the past few years and the last three units I purchased have all literally quickly fallen apart, Two of them had miserable reception.

Emergency radios, of course, are purchased primarily with emergency use in mind. In the Chicago Metro area that would be mostly power outages which can last, believe it or not, for several days. A couple of years ago on the street where I live, the north side of the block lost power for only a few hours. But the south side was without power for almost two weeks because of a hard-to-replace transformer of some kind.

In any event, I just want a radio that will be ready to go when the power goes.

This unit fills the bill nicely and very inexpensively.

Construction is much better than I expected. What feels like a substantial plastic shell, tight fitting door over the battery compartment,crisp push button switches, smooth knobs for volume and tuning.

Hand-cranking will deliver a charge, but it takes a lot of cranking to build up a charge. I intend to use AAA batteries, of which I always have an ample supply.I will not be purchasing an external power adapter. Again, aside from casual listening which is a rarity in this era of internet streaming, this unit will be used only when the power is out.

AM, FM and WX reception are all excellent. AM and FM stations are nicely separated. The antenna does help with FM and WX stations. Volume is good, but certainly not deafening.The digital display is a very nice finishing touch.

Finally!
As a survival enthusiast I've been wanting an affordable crank radio.

This device is exactly what I was looking for.

1 usb port for powering up devices.
AM/FM/WX channels.

A weak, (but useful for emergency scenarios) flashlight.

An LED lit display for your channel.

Out of the box this device had a small charge that lasts a few minutes.

200 cranks and/or approximately 2-3 minutes of cranking produces about 10 minutes of use.

Thanks,

Bucky Wilson

Great sound and portable. Nice looking and useful. However, after cranking the unit several minutes to store power in the rechargeable batteries, there is a minute or two of power and then it dies.

You will NEED to carry (3) AA batteries if you hope to use this radio or seek out a replacement of the rechargeable internal battery. I doubt that it can be used for very long as a flashlight or a USB charger for your phone. That was the reason I ordered these. Frustrating!

The Emergency AM/FM/WX Crank Radio appears to be a very good value. I just received it yesterday. It seems to be very sturdily built. The rubber feet on the bottom hold it firmly in place on the table top. I like the built-in carrying handle and the retracting antenna. The Dynamo crank handle looks and feels substantial. The actual cranking motion does take some effort though. More effort than I expected. Here are my first impressions:

Pros:
- Sturdy construction, simple controls
- Retracting antenna to prevent damage
- True digital tuning. Strong signal pulling power. Lighted dial for night use.
- Emergency Weather alerts
- Decent sound quality and volume from a small radio. It's about the size of a hardback novel.
- Built-in LED light is adequate for emergency use. Don't plan on lighting up a room.
- Battery and a/c adapter power options
- USB port (I have not tested whether this will be useful or not)
- Replaceable Ni-cad battery pack
- Exceptional AA battery life for use without cranking

Cons: (so far)
- It takes a lot of cranking for 5-10 minutes of radio play.
- The crank takes some effort, lots of resistance
- No solar option for battery charging
- No a/c adapter included

The built-in Ni-cad rechargeable battery pack is pretty small. Most Ni-cad batteries require some care to work properly and give good service. To achieve full power and maximum use, the battery pack should be fully charged (a/c adapter) before use. The instructions do not mention that. If it is only cranked for 60-90 seconds at a time, the battery will develop a 'memory' eventually thinking it is fully charged after only 60-90 seconds.

I purchased this for a survival bag, but its invaluable for camping trips too. It is easy to charge with the crank and lasts much longer than expected off of a charge. I imagined I would have to constantly crank to listen to the radio or use the charge feature, but that's not the case. The option to use with batteries is anther added bonus that has many uses and convenience. If you spend time camping or are putting together a Bug Out Bag, I would highly recommend.

I paid $12.99 for this on clearance and thought it would be usable but cheap. i was surprised. it's very good quality and performs as stated. This is probably a regular $49.99 - $59.99 device at retail. so for $12.99 it's a steal. hope there are some left if you read this review and decide to purchase one.
