Great for CERT Teams & Emergencies

Customer review by WPUC720

5.0 stars by WPUC720

Excellent! Only, why didn't somebody think of this sooner? After a hurricane, power can be out for weeks. And who keeps weeks worth of spare batteries piled up--or wants to pay for them?? By using the "armstrong" method, batteries need never be a consideration during an extended power outage. With this excellent product, we have unlimited GMRS talk-time power for emergency contact to other licensed GMRS users such as REACT & local CERT teams. And we can charge up our cell phones, for when the cell networks remain up and running. I am exceedingly pleased. Thanks Midland!

I found this radio to be a good value to have in case of an emergency. It receives AM and FM and weather well and has short range 2 way communication as well as a flashlight. Living in FL it will be stored in my emergency kit.

Just a note, in addition to the rechargeable battery pack provided, you can also place 4 AA batteries in the radio. This essentially provides you with three power sources, 110V, rechargeable and regulat battery power.

  • This radio has 2 battery options: a removable, rechargable battery pack and 4 slots for alkaline AA batteries. When using the crank charge feature, the rechargable battery pack is charged. The only rechargable battery that can be used is the battery pack provided by the maufacturer. Unfortunately, only alkaline batteries can be used in the battery slots.
