By Bryan K. Jones on September 24, 2005
I bought the Kaito KA888 radio a couple of weeks ago for

shortwave and in case of an emergency. It is a real nice

radio for emergencys with its features, the compass,time,

temperture,and a perfect bright light during night or

black outs.The radio is pretty good and smooth.The KA888

has AM,FM and shortwave (4bands) with quality sound on FM

AM. The shortwave is ok and not the most clearest,but this

specialliaces on being for emergencys.Which its very good

for that.I kept the radio for about a week and returned it

for the KA077 emergency radio because it covered more bands

like VHF,TV,and weather bands.For me I liked this one better

for my interest and needs.I would say that both radios are

nice.It just depends what you need and want.The KA888and

KA077 are good quality radios for a good price.

This little jewel will not only entertain you with your favorite radio station, it will also give you rather decent light and will sound a very loud alarm so that you can be rescued. It will also tell you the ambient temperature and will even tell you the time.

No, it is not a high tech digital radio that can scan the tropics of radio transmissions and provide incredible reception, but it really does the job it was designed to do. It will light your way. It will connect you with world band radio. It will scream a loud siren to help you be found among the rubble that once was your home. It will comfort you. And, if you haven't even given it alkaline batteries, all you have to do is turn the crank. Miracle of miracles, this little radio will love you.

ordered the Kaito KA888 emergency radio for a present. It worked for exactly one day, then the AC adaptor died, making it impossible to use the radio on current or recharge it. Then the solar function stopped a few days later.

I have been in contact with the company and am returning it for a replacement, as that first day was wonderful.

I'll let you know if the replacement one works.

very disappointing so far.

We picked up two of these at a clearance sale and they are good radios. I liked the fact that they can be operated by so many power sources. Usually when we have very bad weather we can lose power and knowing that you can just crank this radio and operate it keeps us in touch with the radio and emergency channels. You also have a pretty good flash light for use during the power outage issues.

The second radio is one we can use for being outside at a picnic or traveling. We don't camp but it would be ideal for that also. I like when you are outside that it can charge via the solar panel on the top of the radio. Sometimes I even just set the home one in the window to have it charge up instead of cranking it.

I like the storage compartment and I keep a few waterproof matches in there for starting fires or grills. We have had no issues with our radios and they are several years old. The radio reception is very good and if you even need it there is a pop-up extendable antenna.

Overall this is a good emergency radio that is lightweight and portable. We like ours.

When I first received this item, the solar panel did not work, on account of the fact that the switch would not turn to the solar option. After a while, the internal batteries died and would not retain a charge. It was returned to the retailer, and we received a new one, which works OK... Extra emphasis on "OK". Everything works on this one, except that the radio seems to be permanently set on it's loudest setting. I have to plug the earbuds in to "turn it down." Also, the clock is extremely hard to set, and the instructions are written very badly. So, you run your chances getting this... If it works, great, if it doesn't...
On the good note, the compass is handy, although small, and the temperature gauge is nice, the design is ergonomic, and the strap is nice.

I bought this radio based on the positive reviews on Amazon. This is NOT a SOLAR radio. i have left the radio out in the Arizona sunshine for 3 days straight, and the solar cells do not charge anything.
the radio works only in direct bright sunshine or with the provided plug in power adapter. no wonder the radio has 4 different powering options, since the solar one is a sham

i wonder who writes these positive reviews about the functionality, when the main reason for being for this radio is that it has a solar power source, good for use for camping and emergencies??

Every thing works well on this item except the winding of the magneto. It is hard to turn and must be turned rapidly to generate enough energy to operate the unit. The good part is with a storage battery built in and the common battery cells, you will probably never need to wind it.
