Customer Reviews

Perhaps I got a dud.
Stephanie Dee
It's powered by rechargable batteries, by regular batteries, solar panels and can be powered by a hand-crank!

I have owned a Voyager V1 dynamo and solar radio for about two weeks now. It is an AM/FM/SW receiver with the ability to be powered four ways. The Voyager V1 comes with a rechargeable Ni-MH power pack installed in the radio, but not plugged in. Mine came charged and after I plugged the pack in the radio it worked. The Ni-MH pack can be charged from a computer USB output to the mini USB input on the radio, or, as I found, from my cell phone charger that has the Mini USB output. Bonus, my cell phone can be charged back in an emergency from the radio which has a standard USB output to charge a cell phone. There is also a crank dynamo that can recharge the run down rechargeable pack. The solar panel on top of the radio will slow charge or maintenance charge the radio. It also can use three AAA batteries. I should never be without power to use this "green" radio.

I love to DX in the evening hours on the AM band to see how far away I can receive a listenable program signal. For a radio of any size this small radio is a joy. Last night, I received the powerhouse 100KW station WSN 650, and 50KW WLAC 1510 from Nashville, TN, - WTVN 610, only 5KW, Columbus, OH, - two Philadelphia, PA stations KYW 1060 and WPHT 1210 both 50KW, - completely the opposite direction ,WHO 1040 50KW, Des Moines, IA., - and WKZO 590 only 5KW from Kalamazoo, MI., and this morning broadcasting only in daytime hours, WMIC 660 and just 1KW from Sandusky, MI. Where am I? - metro Detroit, right in the heart of lots of powerful local radio activity. This radio has good AM reception.

FM radio is equally strong and, while not stereo, provides power to both earphones if you use them. The FM/SW antenna is only 14 inches long fully extended, but it does the job. Most local FM stations don't need it folded out.

This product has a number of well thought-out design features. It is solidly built, the crank is sturdy. The flashlight is a handy feature. It offers am/fm and 2 sw bans. The sound on the radio is very good for such a small radio and it picks up stations well. It can be powered by aaa batteries, rechargeable battery, crank and solar. It recharges cell phones.

The problem is the execution. The rechargeable battery did not work very well. After cranking for a couple of minutes, the battery would not hold a charge. I recharged it for 8 hours on my computer. Battery died within an hour-no power was being drawn on the battery. Also after about 75 minutes of use, the AM band no longer worked. This radio is designed to be a back-up radio but mine was unreliable. Returned it to Amazon.

Ok, this dynamo radio is a little smaller than I expected it to be; we're talking- fits in the palm of your hand. A bad thing? No. What this diminutive little gadget lacks in size, it makes up for in dense heftiness and great build quality.

Appearance: buttons and toggles are straight forward; red LED lights to indicate radio on, green LED lights to indicate charging from either the dynamo or solar cell- lets you know that the internal cell is receiving juice.

The Crank: actually kind of fun. Has a solid feel that reassures me that i'm not destroying the radio by juicing up the battery.

The Tuner: receives FM and AM stations with little effort- can tune in AM 1120 KMOX (St. Louis) from Chicago. Shortwave reception isn't bad, does a slightly better job than my little standalone COBY shortwave. Does not tune Weather Band stations; but doesn't AM/FM generally make those redundant in all but most unique situations?

Volume: can be as loud as you need it to be, no issues in that area.

The "flashlight" function: kind of cheesy; not that bright- uses the el cheapo bluish 'white' LED's but a welcome feature in any case.

Phone charging: didn't work on my Droid X2, may work for you. Not really disappointed that it didn't work.

Bottom line:::::::::::::::::::
25.00 is a little too expensive for this radio, but with it's host of features and completely self-sustaining power system, you'll be uniquely prepared to catch emergency warning information in even the most post-apocalyptic of zombie outbreaks. Shortwave reception will prove especially useful to those survivors looking for reassurance that others remain uninfected.

I knew this item was small, but I did not know how small. It is ridiculously small...I have medium sized ladies hands, and it literally sat in my palm. Nonetheless, I tried the instructions and there was almost no volume. You could only turn it up so far, and I tried local FM stations, and nothing. Perhaps I got a dud. Regardless, the size is comical if you want any control over tuning. Returned to Amazon same day of receipt.

I didn't get to play with this one much as it was a gift for my 25 yr old grandson, but did test it to make sure everything worked and then got to do it all again after he got it.. To say he was very pleased would be an understatement..For a small radio it has very clear sound, loud enough at 1/2 volume, a bright light, easy to crank and everything worked exactly as advertised.
