This emergency radio earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it had the longest playback time and clearest reception. In addition to being the only tested model that allowed users to set multiple weather alert types (49 total) across multiple counties and states using Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) technology, the Best Emergency Radio ran for five hours after a full charge, far superior to other radios that lasted merely 11/2 hours. Unlike lesser models that could not charge an iPhone more than 4%, The Best model charged an iPhone from zero to 88% of its full capacity. The Best model allowed analysts to hear every word of the NOAA Weather Band, unlike other models that produced distorted, static-filled audio. The Best Emergency Radio’s large, ergonomic hand crank required little effort to turn and it has an easy-to-adjust digital NOAA/AM/FM tuner that was superior to competing radios with analog tuners. The Best model’s superior features include an integrated LED flashlight, water-resistant construction, USB port for charging smartphones, and a built-in solar panel for supplemental power. 7" H x 51/2" W x 13/4" D. (11/2 lbs.)

Amazing little machine
from Jacksonville, FL
This is a high quality, multifunctional tool. Because it has so many features, you need to read the instructions to know how to activate each feature. The instruction booklet is somewhat small and difficult to read. I solved that problem by locating a manual online.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Does It All
from Havertown Pa.
With all the different charging options you will never be left stranded without power. Great for trips when you want that security of knowing you can have access to charging and information. Add in the liftime guarantee and I do not see how you can go wrong.
Product delivered on time and in good condition. Everything works as advertised. I did a lot of research before making this purchase, because it can mean the difference in life or death. After hours of reading product and user reviews, I choose this radio. I know now I made the right decision. It does so much for the price. Very happy with my choice.
Definately recommend this product
By Banana Nana
from Greensburg, PA
We use it every day to check the weather. It is much clearer than any weather radio we have had. We are very pleased with it.
high quality radio with many features
from Rancho Mirage, CA
I bought the radio for emergency situations. It gets in my weak NPR radio station of choice and holds it clearly, no matter where I move it. It is lightweight and easy to crank, too. The other features, such as the weather band, and the multiple light modes are great.
