This review is from: Etón SCORPION NSP100GR Multi-Purpose Solar Powered Digital Weather Radio - Green (NSP100GR) (Electronics)
During a week long camping trip-- The antenna is too short - the radio reception is poor no matter what band you are on. On a full charge at moderate volume your listening time is about 30 minutes. It takes alot of cranking or time in bright sun to charge. It was rained on- lightly for about 15 minutes, it stopped working and showed an odd display & condensation in the display window- however after baking in the sun for a few hours it dryed out an worked again. The buttons to change the station can't be located well with your fingers, they are all stacked together in a row. You cannot charge a phone via the USB port unless you are turning the crank [and turning and turning and turning]. Except for the rain issue it does seem to take shock/drops.
