I have used and depended on a similar product for several years. It shares most of the same features. Here is how Midland took each of those features and improved on them. That will answer the question if it is a good value for the price.
I mentioned rugged. Yes, my old unit has been thrown into a backpack more times than I can count and it still works and looks great. The difference is the Midland has weatherized buttons, a more protected speaker, an antenna less prone to get caught on something and break and a more substantial feeling magneto crank. The size is about 75% smaller, in fact it is hard to believe how much Midland has packed into something about the size of a compact digital pocket camera. Oh, and whereas built-in radios only used to be AM/FM, this one also has the full NOAA weather band.
My older unit uses a flashlight bulb. My how things have changed. The Midland not only uses a bright and energy-efficient LED light it is a CREE light, known for projecting a powerful beam. No, it's not the brightest flashlight ever sold but it is more than adequate for an all-in-one device. IT has 2 levels of brightness plus it can flash a distress signal in Morse Code.Read more ›
Overall, the unit performs well enough and I *do* recommend it. It is at a great price point (price vs features and quality).
First off, I am happy to say, this product charged my iPhone4 from 12% to 100% in 2.5 hrs! The ER200 radio battery went from 100% to 4% during this time. I am impressed and happy that the unit was capable of fully charging my iPhone 1 time.
I am also happy to say that the flashlight *does* work with NO battery installed. For emergency situations this is comforting to know. I could also get the radio to work with NO battery, but only sporadically, and with great difficulty (hand cranking ~5 cranks/sec and with the assistance of a partner to push the buttons to turn on the radio and select the station). So, the flashlight IS practical with no battery, the radio is NOT.
Solar charging note:
Due to the extremely small surface area of this solar panel on the radio, I have calculated that it is considered to be only a 0.18W solar panel.Read more ›
Setting up Midland's ER200 Emergency Radio is a breeze. The first thing that needs to be done is to insert the rechargeable battery by simply opening the battery door and plugging it in. After that the battery may be charged by several different means: via USB cable, solar panel or using the hand crank. My main complaint with this device is that it only comes with a USB to micro USB cable to charge it. Midland assumes you have a means to plug in the included USB cord to a power source. True, most people do, but what the people who don't own a computer or a smartphone and can't plug it in? Similar emergency radios in the same price range include both an AC and DC car adapter at no extra cost. For an additional twenty dollars each Midland will sell you a power adapter for the home or the car. I just think at least an AC adapter should have been included.
After the battery has been inserted it is best to set the built in clock by pressing and holding the WX/Menu button. 12/24 hour time can be selected in the settings menu as well as the backlight settings - on, off or off after 5 seconds (default), and whether the channel or frequency of the weather radio is displayed. Once that it setup it is advisable to press the WX/Menu once until "WX" flashes in the display. This turns on the weather alert radio, and the siren will sound if there are warnings in the area.
Operation of the radio is pretty simple. Press the "Band" button to choose either AM/FM or Weather. Use the Up/Down "Tune" buttons next to it to tune the station.Read more ›
