ETON Hand Crank AM/FM Weather Radio w/ USB Charger and Flashlight
Good useful purchase. I bought for any emergency we have. Very compact, works great.
I bought it for a friend who lives in NY. I have a similar one and I use it often as a flashlight. And it is so handy for radio and weather information. They had all those big storms last year and she thanked me for sending her this item.
Got for a gift for a neighbor and he loves it. No batteries needed! Perfect for staying up to date on weather, or just listening to radio.
I bought this to replace my old crank radio that I broke the handle on. Overall I really have not used it. It’s just in case of and emergency and so I could listen for where to tune into. I only gave it a 3 because I haven't used it.
Great Innovation..Loved it..
A great product, I do a lot of biking and usually run out of batteries. This is a miracle; it’s like carrying a generator along with you. It has always helped me in the times of my emergency. I totally recommend this product. The best part is crank, and then weather and flash light share the same position. I don`t use fm much but still my girl likes it sometime. I feel this product is a great innovation.
WISH THIS HAD WORKED
ORDERED THIS AND WAS AWAITING ITS ARRIVAL. WHEN IT ARRIVED, IT WORKED FOR ONE DAY. THE NEXT DAY I COULDNT GET THE RADIO TO WORK AT ALL. NO MATTER HOW MUCH I CRANKED IT OR WALKED WITH IT OUTSIDE. I WANTED IT TO WORK AS I DONT HAVE A RADIO AND WE DO HAVE EXTREME WEATHER HERE. SO ITS REALLY SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE IN THE HOUSE. VERY DISSAPOINTING. HATED TO SEND IT BACK BUT, I DID.
Great idea including crank!
Great for taking along on my motorcycle. Also it allows us to use all our emergency generator power for essentials. I will use it for getting around in dark, phone charger and keeping up with news and weather. Having crank best option. Great idea.
Glad I got it :)
Decided after a tornado touched down in our county that this was a need. We did not have a radio and our satellite TV went out during the storm. Received this yesterday and put it to the test. It cranks and charges easily. I was able to find the radio stations easily, flashlight works well and it allows me to charge my cell phone (just be sure you look on the dial for the WORD "CELL" to put in in charge mode). I am so please I bought two. My children will be taking them to sporting events (or other activities) so that they are able to keep their phone's charged without having to look for an electrical outlet. I feel this will also be a great thing to have camping this summer.
Helpful During Flooding
I want to buy this but I need to know if it will charge a I pad as well as phones. When electricity goes during floods we have no phones and use our iPad for everything.
Not at all what I expected
Too much work to keep the battery charged.
I wanted it to listen to the radio but the battery did not hold the charge long enough not matter how hard I tried.
I bought several of these as Christmas gifts last year for my sons and son in law and they really enjoyed them. Great to keep in car or backpack in case of emergency.
Great little radio
I love this radio. It gets good reception, and has three ways to charge it. It will be good to have in emergencies, because of the WB, AM/FM, and the flashlight. Sounds pretty good for a small radio, but the volume does not go very high. I use earbuds with it, or you can hook up an external speaker.
