ETON Hand Crank AM/FM Weather Radio w/ USB Charger and Flashlight
great little emergency backup
contrary to some of the poor reviews, this little radio/flashlight works great...i charged it in the sun all day, and it not only held the power for a good length of time, the radio is so clear and light so bright. so glad i bought it.

I thought they would make great Christmas Stocking Stuffers for friends, but I was wrong. I put it on the window sill to charge the battery in the sunlight for 2 days and it did not hold a charge very long at all, about 10 minutes.. I couldn't get the radio or the weather radio to work in my area. I sent all four back. Very disappointed. I could not depend on anything but the flashlight.
Does not work with iPhone 5! They don't say that on air, just keep referring to how it works with your smart phone. Dumb move. Will return. Dissappointed.
Call me IMPRESSED!!!
I purchased this (in graphite) to have a back-up that did not need batteries for emergencies when the battery powered items run low or are not available for use. I have to say, this is one powerful little piece of equipment, very strong LED flashlight, bright, glow in the dark ring works wonderfully as well, the crank is simple and quiet, the tuning on the radio is flawless and crisp in sound with loud volume, antenna works easily, and it powers up and holds power for a very long time. Amazing little item, would highly recommend to anyone!!!
THE GREATEST GADGET/GIFT FOR ALL!!!
I am ecstatic about this product. It performs exactly as described. I've had absolutely no issues/problems with it. The concept of NOT having to buy and replace batteries is awesome. Initially I purchased 4 of these, yet I'm back to buy more. They will be Xmas gifts for the gadget-loving guys in my family. They will also be a must-have for my teenage drivers to have in their cars. It was practically a steal of a deal with a clearance price, free shipping, and easy pay. Thanks QVC!
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.
