ETON Hand Crank AM/FM Weather Radio w/ USB Charger and Flashlight
Don't hesitate,, buy, buy NOW
I purchased two of these. For the price you can't beat it! Just charge the battery and wow you have all radio bands, great emergency flashlight. You can crank up the battery if the lights go out. Used during snow storm, radio worked wonderfully. Put in sun to charge solar panel. Keep one in house and the other is in the car for emergencies. Great product!
worst product ever
this worked for about 5 min. & never worked again. gave one to my sister & her's has never worked. kept them too long to return.
I was ok with it at first, but I really never did anything but keep it in the draw next to my bed for emergencies. I just noticed the solar panel is cracked, FROM WITHIN. How does that happen?? I won't buy a ETON radio/light again!
Great gift for big and little kids
I purchased these for my grandsons as stocking gifts for Christmas this year, and what a hit they were. The boys are 6 and 9, and loved that they could generate the power needed to make these light-up or to have a working radio of their own. This is a novel product for children and serves as a good teaching tool for explaining energy power of varying types.
Great for camping, in the car, or for using when all alone.
Great "man gift"!
I bought these as Christmas gifts for all of the men in my family. They work great and everyone loved them!
SAVE YOUR MONEY
I bought these as gifts but after seeing them close up I couldn't see myself giving them to ANYONE. They are cheaply made and there is way too much effort for very little payoff. Returning.
Great shelter tool
Very versatile tool for emergency preparation. Works with very few cranks, even after sitting for weeks. Wish I had, had it last year during the ice storms here.
Husband Loved This
Got this for my husband for Christmas and he loved it and said it was cheaper then the store had it.. Good deal
waste of time and money
don't bother getting this only you want it for the flashlight. It would not hold a charge no matter how long we cranked it. WE couldn't get any radio stations on it either.
I bought three for gifts and couldn't get a signal on the radio. They are light weight and feel very cheap. Returned them.
GREAT DEAL FOR THE MONEY AND IT WORKS FINE, GLAD I GOT IT.
Maybe good for campers
I really wanted to like this as I purchased it to keep in the car for emergencies. With that said, if it was an emergency I doubt I would be able to crank continuously for long enough to say it was useful.
However, I love having a solar charge!! So, I left it sitting in my south facing window for 2-3 days while out of town. I expected to have a fully charged unit upon my return. Instead, I got 5-10 seconds of radio and then nothing.
I called the 800# to see if I had misunderstood directions, or perhaps gotten a defective unit, only to find out that for the 'solar panel' to charge, it has to be left OUTSIDE to charge, not in a window with blinding sunlight pouring in. So much for the idea of having this solar charged in the car, ready in case of emergency.
Sturdy enough feel and size
Comes with usb cable
Bright light for a couple seconds with a quick crank.
Clear radio sound, again, for a couple of seconds after quick crank.
CRANK CRANK CRANK for little return
Having to leave unit OUTSIDE for 3-4 hours to charge in full unblocked sun
Tiny print on radio dial. Although it's easy dial and listen, you charge might expire while searching.
