ETON Hand Crank AM/FM Weather Radio w/ USB Charger and Flashlight
Angel Eton hand crank
It is a good radio, flashlight, emergency radio receiver, & quick phone charger. We ordered two of these for Tornado season & snow/ice season. Sometimes, we need the source that it provides & with a crank charger to have a charge even when there is no other source. It can also help for light when walking the dog but the light really is best for the emergency situations. We are thinking to keep one in the vehicle & one in the basement. Thanks!
NOT QUITE SURE
I purchased this for myself in case of a power outage. I used the hand crank when it arrived. The charge didn't last. I'm going to place it in the sun (when the sun comes out...I live in Oregon) I'm still debating if I will send back. The concept is wonderful, however if it dosent work there is no need in decorating a junk drawer.
Works great.....nice size.....would recommend everyone have one just in case.....
Not the best...
I will keep this for a "just in case it might work correctly when I need it" reason. The radio works fine, but I have a very hard time getting the weather radio to work in my home. Sadly, this is the main reason I ordered it. The blue color is nice. The light puts out well, but again, I mainly wanted it for the weather radio and it certainly lacks in performance.
I have seen this product before, but I almost always wait to read the reviews. This radio is AWESOME!!!!! My husband and I absolutely love it as a night radio that doesn't need electricity. The flashlight is ultra bright, too. Just another great purchase from QVC. I am very proud to be apart of this family. P.S. Might be purchasing for ALL Christmas presents.
I bought a hand crank flashlight from my local department store but I couldn't see my hand in front of my face when it was lit. With this I got a bright light, I was able to find a radio station to listen to in emergencies AND I really liked that I can charge my electronic devices via USB with this.
Hand Crank review
I revived the item pretty fast. When I opened the box I was so surprised how small this was. It seems to be good quality cranking is easy but not sure how long you have to crank to keep it going. The real reason I purchased this is because of the port to charge my cell phone.
Preview Your Review
After I order this, in about 2 weeks, we had a black out. It lasted all night. I am so glad I had this Hand Crank. Even though I had to crank it up several times, It is worth the effort and muscle. It is not hard to do. It beats worrying about batteries going out. My batteries went out in my flashlight. I
intend to order more. The way this weather in the Earth is now, I believe it is essential that we all have one of these on hand.. It's an all in one emergency product, a child can use it.
I have bought six of these, and ALL are Christmas gifts including one as a stocking stuffer for my husband. So, I don't know about its actual performance. Hence, the four stars. However, they appear to be well made with sound, substantive construction. Throw in a great price and free shipping, and you can't beat it. The concept is excellent and they get other great reviews. It makes a great gift for a guy; someone living alone, families, etc. But more so, it is a good thing to have always close at hand; right next to all other emergency supplies! With weather having been as crazy as it's been in all parts of the country, you never know when this will become a vital necessity. The flashlight; information from the outside world; the ability to recharge your cellphone: ALL with a self- sufficient power source. I think its a winner!
Very Handy Device
Only had this item a short time,and had to use due to storms,power outage.Worked as it stated.
Does Not Hold Charge
This is a great idea but after using the crank several minutes; the charge lasted less than two minutes. Sent it back.
I put this in the window all day and it worked for 30 seconds. I cranked it and it barely worked for 1 minute. It is only good for a paper weight.
