ETON Hand Crank AM/FM Weather Radio w/ USB Charger and Flashlight
Feel Secure Purchase
I feel secure in knowing I have this item to use when the power goes off. It's nice because it has multiple functions and I can use the flashlight, radio and cell phone charger within one unit and not have to hunt for them separately or find batteries.
I was really impressed.
I bought this radio and love it! wasn't sure but as soon as I got it I left it in the sun and man it works great. The sound is really good and the cell charger was a added bonus. great item.

Just rec'd this and amazingly had power outage a couple days later and needed to use it. What a great little item for this price! Lightweight and compact, good AM/FM/weather audio, charged my cell phone confidently, BRIGHT light. Crank it a few easy times and there you go. It doesn't get any easier when you are in a panic-induced power outage! I am now ordering a couple more for Christmas gifts -- GREAT for backpackers and bicyclists! -- but one more for me to just leave in my car. NOT meant to power your household, for goodness sake....Not a stereo system...Just forget those reviews. I am a very fussy and discriminating buyer. This is just a nice, efficient, little emergency product that performed well for me now twice.

I bought this in April. Last night my power was out for 1/2 hour. I went to get my weather radio. I cranked it for 2 minutes. When I went to turn it on, I only had 1 beam on my light, so I cranked it some more and still did not have a light. I needed the light, Because it was dark. I would love to send it back,but I do not have my receipt any more. Also my 30 days are up. Very disappointed. I thought I would have something in case my power went out. Well I was wrong. The only reason I gave it a 2 was because the radio did work.
NOT AS ADVERTISED
Way too much work for a few minutes of power. Wow, QVC...you really should be more specific about this product when you present it. I had this for 30 minutes before I packed it up and shipped it back.
This was a great purchase. I highly recommend this useful radio/charger. Hopefully, we won't need it this winter, but who knows? In case we do, we are prepared. It works perfectly and will come in handy at the beach, as well.
I have had one for a while now and I really like it---bought this one for my son to have if power goes out.
I have never had any problems with mine. As far as some reviews say it feels cheap I have to disagree. I think it has a nice weight to it. It has been good to have when the power was out. It may take some extra cranking to keep going but it's nice to have a radio and weather station as well as a good flashlight when nothing else is working.
Waste of money
Very unhappy with product. Wx radio part doesn't work at all - and I should pick up at least 2 stations from where I live. Volume control knob fell off when taking the radio out of the box and will not stay in the radio. Very poor design.
Hope I'll Never Have To Use This
It does not look cheap. My mom lives in a tropical country that gets typhoons all the time (think haiyan) and this would definitely be helpful if the need arises. I got another one for myself as I live in Los Angeles. Got to be ready for the big one.
Bought to use riding my bike, the solar panel helps to recharge cell phone. Which comes in handy when out riding on all day trips. Could of used it 2 months ago when phone died and I needed GPS on my phone to get home. The flashlight is stong enough to use when power goes out.
What a great gadget! Mine works great, and will surely come in handy when batteries fail. Gives that extra safety that we all need in emergencies.
