So I pulled the trigger w/ low expectations and am I glad I did. These FR-160's are ideal for their purpose: they provide basic lighting & communication (read: radio/weather) in case of emergency. The quality was shockingly good for only $30. And they're small -- pretend your hand is in a mitten and subtract your thumb...about that size. They're not meant to provide music for a party so don't expect it amazing quality sound. They're not designed to be used on the ocean as your boat's only radio. Don't drop it off a cliff and expect it to be good as new. They're designed to be a compact combination radio/flashlight that can be a lifesaver if you ever need it.
The flashlight is minimal, but I would not expect more from an LED light source. I have my 6-D-Cell Mag light if I need a powerful (luxury) light source.
Tuning the radio is a bit sensitive and can be difficult to fine tune.Read more ›
Update as of 5/14/2012.
I let it sit out in the rain all day today, and it hardly got any water in it... It still works!
M. Mason would want to know exactly how hard the rain was... The weatherman says up to 1"/Hour.
M. Mason would want to know exactly how long it sat in the rain? approximately 8 hours...
I took it apart, noticed about 4 drops of approximately 1 mm in diameter. After an hour, got tired of waiting and put it back together, it seems to work fine.
The AM/FM radio works fine, and the weather radio works. Of course, time will tell how the Dynamo works, but I don't expect water to effect the solar charging. I won't turn the dynamo for a while, as the battery should have a full charge as it sat out in the sun yesterday. How long? I just don't know, sorry M. Mason.
I finally packed it in an air tight container with an old packet of Desiccant to try and dry out any remaining moisture. As long as the packet isn't too saturated, it should work...

I just don't get why people getting all bent out of shape because you can't charge your phone. This is a emergency radio and light not a backup cell phone battery charger. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Patrick
It doesn't work :-( Sure the radio works, but the flashlight is dim, and it simply doesn't charge battery for smart phones. They should not sell this defective product.Published 8 days ago by Satori Girl
I purchased this for emergency use. Well we finally lost power and I got to play with it. The radio picks up local stations just fine. The light provides moderate illumination. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Rich
The radio received stations very well. The audio quit working on mine within just a few uses. Maybe mine was just defective but I did not order again.Published 21 days ago by Four Low
Manual hand crank charges it for a brief amount of time, but the solar doesn't work at all.Published 22 days ago by Michelle Stamates
If this radio is handled too much the plastic will become sticky and attract dirt with no real way to clean it. I've had remotes in the past with this problem. Read morePublished 1 month ago by J. Geib
