In theory, this is a fantastic tool. I loved that it has a temperature gauge, compass, signal mirror, radio, various LED lights, and can be charged AC or hand crank. More than anything, the motion sensor caught my attention. In my "what if the world ends" scenario, the motion sensor really stood out as a useful addition, and not one I'd seen before.
After receiving the first, I immediately noticed it does NOT come with an AC charger. I re-read the wording, and it was ambiguous. After talking with an Amazon rep, he assured me it SHOULD come with the AC charger. The plastic holder inside the box clearly has a spot/depression/outline for one. The other thing that was very quickly obvious is that I couldn't get it charged at all, even after vigorously using the hand crank. The temp gauge and compass were decent.
Thus, I sent that one back, hoping the replacement would be vastly improved. No such luck. Still no AC charger, although this one actually held the charge when I cranked it. But the radio is pure dung and can't pick up a single station. Living semi-close to Denver, that shouldn't be. And the volume? Goes from silence to god-awful loud (static) in one click - no in-between. Finally, the compass is worthless on this one. No matter what I do, it tells me West is North. I may not be the sharpest tool, but in my own home, I know where North is.
I used another (seemingly...) compatible AC charger with this, which does appear to be doing the job. The cheap little compass isn't the worst loss, as much of my equipment has other compasses. The lack of radio signal (and volume), though, is very discouraging. I guess my little Eton radio and charger will have to continue to suffice.
I have never left a review before but could not let this one slide. Spend $ on something else you can use.
Plan to use this on a camping trip then store in basement in case of a tornado.

I wasn't that impressed with this thing. Felt very cheap and the radio was a joke. I suppose in emergency it would be better than nothing but I will be looking for something else.Published 16 months ago by Jonathan F. German
