5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Backpacking, March 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kaito KA200 Pocket AM/FM Radio, Black (Electronics)
This is in my opinion the most ideal radio for ultralight backpacking and hiking. I did much research before settling on this product and after using it on a recent outing I'm satisfied with my purchase. It uses AAA batteries like my other outdoor products i.e. headlamp, which simplifies having to bring separate size batteries and the unit also extremely small and light. The sound quality is excellent given the size, I'm very impressed with the reception and quality of the product overall.

Any idea of the battery run time on these? AAA cells don't have much power (AA cells have about 3 times the power). I find stuff that runs on AAA cells just last a few hours or just barely get through an evening... not good for emergency use during power failures that last an entire night or for days. So I usually avoid items that run on AAA cells.

For outdoor use far from fresh batteries, the power grid, & emergencies, AA cell operated devices are a far better choice. "D" cell power is even better.

Checkout the Sangean SR-3, runs on a single AAA for 60 hours!
