This radio has every on my ideal list. This Midland ER310 doesn’t technically have a memory settings feature. However, there is one button that switches quickly between NOAA, FM, and AM. As long as the battery doesn’t die, it will stay on the last station I was on in each of the three bands. For example, I can toggle between three set stations of my choosing as long as they are on the three different bands (NOAA 162.550, FM 101.1, AM 590). It took 6 hours to charge connecting the radio using a USB to my computer. It also takes 6 hours using the solar to charge. The radio and flashlight can be used at the same time which is nice.
The included flashlight is plenty bright, and has a "low" (default), "high" and "SOS" setting, and of course there is the ultrasonic dog whistle, which I think is a little gimmicky, but if I'm trapped in a collapsed structure, I'd probably change my opinion when the K-9 SAR comes-a-barking. I live a little over 20 miles from most of the major AM/FM towers in town, and I can pull in all local FM with no problem and most AM stations. The WX frequency for my area (162.400) comes in nice and clear, and while the WX band has a total of seven NOAA "All Hazards" frequencies (check local WX office for your area's frequency), you cannot program S.A.M.E.codes to your specific county with this unit, so if you have the WX alert activated, the very loud alarm and flashing light will certainly get your attention, though the threat may not necessarily be in your backyard. The radio is somewhat ruggedized, but isn't water resistant. There are no station presets on the AM or FM band, just a direct tune with "seek" function.
* The solar charging to too weak to even maintain a charge while sitting in a west facing window.
* Hand crank no where near efficient enough to charge internal battery enough to charge a phone (I tried running down the internal battery and cranking and it was hopeless).
* No way to disable the Required Weekly Test as other radios have. This means if you keep the weather alert feature on, you'll hear a loud siren and strobe light every Wednesday between 11 am and noon.
Pros: The price is very inexpensive
It comes with many features
Battery size is good
You got different ways to power the radio
Solar is an great addition
The house is solid. It sure will survive drops
Sound quality is good
Cons: Weight can be small problem if you wanna take it on a backpacking/hiking trip
Final thoughts:Just buy it.
I have poured over and over the descriptions & reviews for an addition to my emergency kit. I have had a Realistic DX-440 for many years, but wanted one with alternative power.(The DX-440 takes 6 D Cells + 2 AA cells)
I pulled the trigger on this one, and an very happy!
For me this size is just right. the buttons are spaced nicely apart, and large enough to easily operate. the display is readable, and backlit in 5 second/ after button pushed, always off, or always on. The battery gauge gauge blinks w/ charging either from cranking or solar power. An LED also indicates that the unit is charging.
The crank works easily, is not so small that it is like a hamster cage, but seems sturdy enough as long as it is not abused.
The solar panel charges even in suprisingly lower (Cloudy / sunset to dusk) levels.
The FM band came in very clear, and the sound quality is good. On AM, the reception is of a lower quality, but adequet for getting information and basic listening. The WX band came in clear with minor adjusting of the aerial on several of the frequencies. (7 Frequencies)
The aerial itself could be easily bent, but taking normal care should be fine.
The Flashlight is quite bright, even on the low setting. The blinking mode is a bit of a gimick, but OK. Dog whistle - an Icon shows up when the whistle is activated, I'll have to see if the neighbors dog goes nuts when I try it again!
The supplied cord does not fit my phone, but did fit my Kindle, and charged that device. Also wrapped neatly, the cord fits where the AA Batteries go.
The case is plastic, of course, but doew not fee chintzy. It's not waterproof, but stick it in a ziplock if you expect any water. The Handle on the end is a nice thought.
