I first purchased this emergency radio for having something to listen to at the beach or out in the woods camping. It came in handy one several occasions camping...It's current draw is very minimum so batteries last a good while, even if you did forget to set the sleep timer and leave it on all night, a full day charging in the sun will keep this thing going till the sun comes back up again. I like the weather alert function, works just like all other emergency weather radios...does increase the drain on the batteries though...Left the weather alert function on for two weeks straight on accident and the AAA's finally died. Has the ability to charge cell phones for emergency use using a standard USB cable (Not included). Tested this out with my dead HTC Surround, booted up and showed it was charging, was able to put in a 30min call and still put a charge on it.

Exactly what I wanted. Cute, lightweight, easy to move around. Only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 is because sitting out in the sun I felt like the solar panel should have kept the radio on for longer! That could be just me wanting everything I'm entitled to and more, though! Picks up stations just fine, no complaints there! Haven't had to use it for its intended purpose yet (tornado tracking from the tornado room), thankfully!

Radio is nothing but a paperweight

Stay away from this product, and anything this company makes. It was a $60 paperweight, and a mistake for me not to read product reviews on Amazon. This radio is a waste of money. Bought during the winter earlier this year. Opened it up during Hurricane Sandy, and nothing but the flashlight worked. I don't have the receipt, my mistake, but I can't hold onto all my receipts. The company refused to exchange it. I now have (select one): _ $60 paperweight _ $60 low powered flashlight _ $60 for a stress toy that I can crush beneath my feet Please stay away from the products this company - Eton - makes. Many other brands out there; Grundig, Coleman. I should have bought from a company known for things like this.

The radio plays longer than I expected from a hand crank charge. Having a clock and alarm is also nice to have. I was disappointed in the the sound quality. At low volume levels there is distortion. This goes away when you turn up the volume but I prefer low volume levels.

The capabilities of radio to use AAA batteries, solar panel charging of enclosed rechargeable batteries and ability to charge through USB Cable my cell phone are great capabilities that I need during power outages.

This radio has very clear reception provided that the antenna area is not blocked and the battery is properly charged. It is good for taking it out on walks to listen to the radio in the daylight. Like the digital tuning.

It is a wonderful comfort to know that if electricity goes off, I can get report and having the built-in flashlight is also a tremendous comfort. Thank you. Glad I have it.
