HAVENT USED THE PRODUCT YET BUT PLAN ON IT IN THREE WEEKS Just what I was looking for. We had a power outage three days after we received the radio..it worked perfectly. description misleading The product does not run on solar power, as was implied in the catalog description. Disappointing as my intent was to use it in the sun. Battery life a little short for beach use Good product I purchased this for emergency use only which means I wont be using this much and havent yet. But I did test it to make sure everything worked as stated and it does. All radio stations came in clearly. The light on the side isnt that bright but the light behind the solar panel is.

Everyone really liked the emergency radio. We live in tornad N/A Lightweight, but sturdy Love the features. Struggled at first to figure them all out, but I think I got it now. BUG-OUT RADIO getting ready for the big one.... One exception On all night,least movement moves dial. Hard to turn off.otherwise ok. Complete Array of Functional Features Added to our emergency kit for possible power shortages after an earthquake. Seems very functional though the solar power charge feature doesnt register in stored power (unlike the hand crank and batteries). The radio is easy to set up and use. Provides an important power source for mobile phones and will allow for up-to-date information on any emergency. Piece of JUNK! Extremely poor reception. Speakers have a tinny sound, low quality. I have followed the Sharper Image Return protocol per the Sharper Image web site. It has been three days and I have not received a response from Sharper Image!! Cant wait to return this radio! BEST OF THE BEST THIS UNIT IS A GREAT BUY and Has all the bells one would want in a weather radio. Beats Radio Shacks brand - Hands Down ! ! ! Best Pick for Emergency Radio ! After researching emergency radios this was my pick and there were additional features that came in addition to my requirements. I am very happy with my radio and I will be set in an emergency. GREAT GIFT I gave this as a gift to my brother, he could not be happier, after Frankenstorm Sandy, he wanted a Radio with all the bells and whistles he could get, the only dissapointment I had it doesnt come with SW band, nevertheless I was a great gift. radio works ok for use during a bad storm & there is no power Very Nice It will come in handy in the summer while camping. With the display having a thermometer and humidity meter and the alarm clock there to wake you up, all without batteries. Its great. all you need in one radio This part of TX has thunderstorms every afternoon...during Spring and Summer. NOAA notifications are very important, because flash flooding can be a problem. Excellent Emergency Radio Emergency Use-- disappointed it wont charge my iphone 4s Awesome with one flaw The only flaw that I found so far (and Ive only owned this for a week or so) is that you have to manually dial in whatever shortwave radio band youre looking for. Which means you have to know the frequency, at least with my shortwave scanner I can hit scan and get whoever is broadcasting. Oh sure they give you some of the more popular bands but it doesnt cover them all. Other than that, I LOVE IT!!! Storm readiness I needed a radio to know the news and weather during power outages Unfortunately it did not work! I gave it one star because unfortunately, I could not get the product to work as it was designed. The only part that worked was the reading light. I changed the batteries twice to no avail. I am sure had the product worked I would have loved it. It had all of the features I needed and more. Since I could not get it to work, I returned it. Emergency Handcrank Power Radio Rocks No more (cut off from the world when the power goes out). I might like the smaller one better, Ill have to get that one also. This is a great product! I keep this unit over my workbench and listen to the radio while I work. It also has weather channel 24 hours per day so I can always be up to date! Very nice little emergency radio This is a nice little emergency radio with a number of nice features for use when the power goes out. Weather radio offered several options, handcrank appears to be fairly sturdy, though it takes a lot of cranking to charge it up. Solar recharging was a bit of a disappointment, particularly since the instructions say to not leave the radio in the sun too long (?). This radio will need to be kept plugged in or the battery charge will run out by the time there is an actual emergency. Otherwise it looks cool on my shelf and serves the purpose of emergency light and radio very well. Looks good I purchased this item mainly for emergencies. I havent had to try it during an emergency as yet. I find this product. Compact, and well made. Playing with it, I find it a very good must have for emergencies or for none emergencies. Its a goog little radio as well. I like mine. The price isnt too bad for all this radio does. Good Emergency Radio We bought this radio for use in power outages or to take on trips if bad weather is expected. The controls are clear and easy to use and are better than the Eton FX5 we previously bought and returned. The display is much easier to see and use than the Eton as well. The only disappointment is having to purchase the AC adapter separately - this should be part of the package price. great product! Everything it says it is. All in all product. Must have during emergencys. Awesome radio I spend most of my day in a vehicle with no radio! Portable sound is a must. Radio more than serves its purpose! good in an emergency just great to have in an emergency. we recently lost electricity due to hurricane sandy. had we had one of these, we couldve been using the flashlight, listenning to the radio, charging my wifes iphone so she could browse the internet,etc Weather radio Needs to have A/C plug as part of unit. Crazy I need to buy that as an individual component. Out Performs Great Radio for the Price . Best one I ever owned . much better than i thought liked it so much I bought 2 more one as a gift and one for the car Replacing one unit We ordered two units. One arrived with a cracked case, even though the box was not damaged. I assume this is result of quality control. We plan to use the radios during bad storms in Florida. Does it all Played with this for a little while and found it to be amazing. Hope i never need it, but feel better now if the lights go out Wish it came with a usb cord for emergencies, smaller than what I thought it would be. A great thing to have in an emergency My brother-in-law is a security freak and lives with my sister in the Catskill Mts, subject to severe weather and power outages. This is perfect. Seems to have everything necessary to survive a storm, and its a nice little radio in good weather. He was very happy with the gift. I got the AC adapter for times when power is available. great great for what we used to say in California "earthquake liveables", but here in Colorado, great all year round. Excellent Radio Due to its multiple power capabilities, adapter, AA cells, rechargeable battery, solar cells and hand crank it can be used anywhere, anytime. The reading lamp and flashlight are also very useful Great for power outages I bought this as a Christmas gift for someone who lives in an area where power outages occur during the winter. The recipient was very pleased with this product. Im considering buying one for myself. great for camping its very useful to camping. Unfortunately NOAA doesn`t works in Brazil Made well, sounds great and is reliable Bought this for my husband for Christmas 2012. We were so impressed with it, we purchased one for each of our 3 grown children for Christmas 2013. We used it during storms and electrical outage. Ultimate outdoor gear This is the ultimate outdoor companion. I take this multi-everything radio whenever I go camping or even on long trips in the car. It has everything you could think of. Weather alert, flashlight, alarm clock, charger, radio, etc. the list goes on. It has truly been a lifesaver. It is so convenient to have all these important tools compacted into one small piece of equipment. I suggest getting one if you enjoy the outdoors. Compact very useful radio This great electronic device offers emergency information in a situation. It offers various charging to the unit, for use at your home or on the go. This device can last a long time. The cost of this unit will pay off and be worth it in the long run. Love it Never hurts to be prepared for an outage. Small and compact, easy to pack if on the go. Purchased this item and used sucessfully Worked great Reliable Operation easy Realible Great product ! Great for power outages due to poor weather conditions. Everyone should own a product like this! Everyone should own this product just in case of an emergency! Its a Winner Easy to use, good battery life, recharges fast. I really like the solar charger and the flashlight. Nice!!!! I moved to an area that has frequent power outages. I got the radio right before Sandy hit the east coast. Fortunately we were spared, but I put the radio to the test and it passed with flying colors! The solar and crank charges as advertised (very impressive). Took it on a camping trip and it was the first time a "gadget for electronics" actually worked out there correctly. Wonderful product, crystal clear reception! i need two more I should have purchased this type of radio years ago Emergency handcrank Radio A must have during emergencies and power outages. Emergency Radio I live in Oklahoma where the weather can change in a flash!! This Radio has everything need to track the weather & recharge cell phones. It has a GREAT SOUND, I liked so much I have re-order 10 for Christmas presents Great item !!! Glad i have found it ... I feel safe at home with this great all purpose radio. My family feels the same as I do about the unit. Many friends liked it so much they plan on getting the same radio, for home safety. power radio not used yet. Christmas gift. I Hope I Dont Need It But . . . . . . If I do need it, I know it will be very useful. Two and a half years ago we were hit very hard by Superstorm Sandy here in New York City. Our building was without power for nearly a week. I had to scramble to find batteries that were still good. This radio takes batteries out of the equation. Very bright LED flashlight and reading lights, plus a charging port for a cellphone. What more could you want in an emergency situation? It also serves as a nice radio to have for non-emergency enjoyment. The reception was good all over my apartment. I would recommend purchasing the AC adapter so that you can quickly charge the NiH battery, allowing the radio to be ready to go whether its an emergency or for casual use. Great device for storms After Hurricane Sandy I wanted to have this in the house, trying to get more solar flashlights and emergency radio for bad Noreaster storms. Just got it so yet to be storm tested. Great product for the right price This professional emergency radio has a built in cell phone charger that is a huge plus. FULL of functions I have not had this long enough to check the battery life. Also it mentions an a/c adaptor 6 volt but gives no information on where to obtain this adaptor. Really nice radio This radio replaces an older one that had an old school dial tuner. The digital read out was a huge plus. Its nice that it can be charged by many sources and actually be used to charge other items. It will be handy when we have a hurricane threatening with the weather alert. Tight little emergency radio I bought this radio to use during power outages and camping, and its a nice looking solar radio. An excellent product.Should be owned by every husehold. Used primarily for emergencies, at home and on the road. works well. Husband happy. convenient si mainly power failures. Take on car trips Information is Power Great to use anywhere, even on vacation. One power outage will reassure you that this was a great purchase! We bought one for every group in our family - they will not feel powerless (sorry) again! A friend when the power is out. I needed this Emergency Handcrank Power Radio during our last power outage. Since my unprepared four day power outage from hurricane Sandy, I made sure I wouldnt get caught like that again and prepared myself now with dozens of batteries for those new type lanterns for short outages and a 6500 watt gas generator for another Sandy type storm. I have these backup items, but having this handcrank radio makes me feel a little more secure because those batteries could die and the generator can run out of gas, but when all else fails, the handcrank radio makes its own power, need I say more, except, get one for yourself you thank the Emergency Handcrank Power Radio company when the time comes when your electric goes out. Works well Purchased to use in emergencies for a retirement community. Not sure about the battery life though, constantly blinking low battery. Purchased a/c adaptor but not received yet. So...we will see. Radio as described and better great deal and quality of radio Everything I need in one place! I live in FL on the coast, and am always on the look out for items that I can add to my hurricane kit to make life easier when the power goes out. THIS IS IT! To be able to have a clock, radio, flashlight, reading light, and charge my cell phone & ipod all in one place, and have a choice of hand crank or solar recharging, makes this the perfect choice. Does everything you could ask for Has everything you could ask for. Not the most durable item out there - the antenna wonked out a little within a few days - and I wish the buttons on the front of the radio were backlit. Aside from that, weve been finding this to be a useful and fun gadget. Really looking forward to using it on our camping trips. all in one This was bought primarily as a weather alert. How, the radio has great reception! It is also used for the alarm, You wake to the radio not a buzzer. Love the handle and the fact that it is so lightweight Plenty of features. Well laid out. Good emergency radio. Emergency Handcrank Power Radio I gave this to my husband for Christmas and he loves it. Great size, works well. Perfect item to have for emergency. My Review I am what some would call a prepper. I have placed the item in a faraday bag within my go bag to shield it from potential electromagnetic pulses. This item is an integral part of my prepping. With this items multiple powering options I will have on-going access to important information. The short wave combined with the dynamo and solar features sold me immediately. It is lightweight yet very durable and rugged. This item is a must have for all people serious about preparing in the event of any catastrophe. Nice features I like the fact that it has a hand crank as well as a solar panel to charge it up. If you keep it around a window it will always be ready to use. kaito voyager pro multiband radio I like the color of the radio (black) I will use it for emergency purpose and occasionally FM radio. Looks Very Well Equipped - Quick Charge Hoping this will meet our needs Outstanding Radio Great product! Not only does it provide very useful radio broadcasts, you can also use it to charge your cellphone! Great Emergency Radio This radio meets all the requirements for emergency use. It has all the emergency bands, works on battery, solar, or cranking power. Additionally, it has lights and the ability to recharge small portable devices - like cell phones. I think that the signal strength could be improved some. However, this is common to most multi-band radios. Overall, its reception is good. Needs batt. Chargers supplied. Hse,Car Needs to come with battery charges. House and Car. Great for weather emergencies! Very helpful as a "go-to" device for bad weather with power outages. Great for emergencies and just to listen I live in the mountains,where we get occasional power outages. Last one was over 30 hours, and we DID not have this unit. It arrived 3 days later. In setting it up, I was amazed how easy it was to charge the internal batteries, and set up time. Also-have the function of charging cell phones, would have come in handy. I just purchased a second unit , to keep in the truck. Great item. 3 different power sources Sharper image excellent. Stands by the product. fast and easy catalog sale The radio really works really well. I use it for weather alerts. Weve had a lot of bad storms recently and it is a great help. "Great product during power outages" I really like the easy of use and the dependability of knowing this product will have power when I need it most. I especially like the USB connection feature that allow me to recharge cell phones. PERFECT! I am someone who likes to hear songs most of the day, and this helps me whenever I have to do different things around the house, and also whenever I have to go do things out in public! You could just say that all that I need to do is turn on my stereo, but this is more compact, and it doesnt require you to plug it into anything. Also, it has the radio channels so that I can hear anything with regards to the weather. I love this product!! Its easy to use,lightweight and reliable!! My husband loves it!! Will Come in Handy! Living in Florida you always have to be prepared! I really feel like this addition to my Hurricane Kit is a fantastic one. Its easy to use, holds its charge well and serves multiple functions.

Emergency Preparedness at its Best This NOA Weather radio, contains many elements needed during emergency weather related situations, such as power outings. Radio, clock, flashlight, reading light and many battery charging options. Great Emergency Radio. Works pretty well Dials are very flimsy. I will be saving my receipt. Other than that, all features seem to be working as advertised. Solar charges very slowly. satisfied with purchase Used this product while working in yard and car. Good design and more than a toy Very handy (literally!). Functions are second nature, so far. Battery life is unmeasured yet. Short wave receptivity (for my favorite channel)is a surprise. Even if I cant get, saty, 2 hours on the Nimh battery, Id still be satisfied. I think Im underestimating things. good emergency radio $10 discount on $50 purchase from Amazon. Gave radio as gift to son. I have a similar radio without the solar panel. Examined this one and compared to make comments. Excellent Product! Great price for a durable emergency radio. The functions are easy to use and are nicely covered to prevent dust/debris from getting in. So glad I bought this product I really love the product once I learned how to use it through trial and error. I found the instructions to be very confusing and not clear. I learned to use it during a storm in which the alert came on only when in "battery crank" and "solar power" settings. It would not work in the adaptor setting. A little disappointed that I could not use adaptor to ensure the alert would notify me of a storm etc. Very good product I will be buying more This a great product i will tell my friends about this product they are preppers for these kind of items also Thanks alot. Wish it had come with AC adapter. It will be great during dreaded power out and emergencies. Great versatility It is a utilitarian radio. Sound is not high quality if you want to hear music, but very practical for other purposes. Very Useful Useful for your emergency and camping kits. You may not use often, but when you do youll be very glad you had one. Just what I was looking for. I like the weather service alert feature and the fact that if the batterys run out you can use the crank. Great Emergency Radio This NOA Emergency Radio would provide useful information during upcoming bad weather, storms and power outages. It contains a number of features that come handy during the situations mentioned above. I would purchase again Havent had to use it in an emergency yet, but glad I have it when the time comes. GREAT product!! Purchased for my husband since he had been wanting an emergency radio. He is truly impressed with all the features and how easy it is to use. He said we needed to purchase one for each of our kids!! :) Happy Camper Overall satisfaction with value of this multi-functional radio for travel and emergency uses. Portable Self Charging Radio Whether it is in my home office or sitting out on the deck, this portable radio makes it possible to listen to Detroit Tigers games and or the radio/NOAA. "Dont be left in the dark" Cant ask for any better in a power outage. Gives you light, information, even the ability to charge a cellphone. Has terrific reading light. Does not include an AC Adapter but, one is not really necessary. a gift purchase I can only give 2nd hand information as this was a gift for Christmas...I have considered buying another for use myself. Emergency Radio 7 band weather alert that automatically goes on if an alert is made. Performs As Advertised It was delivered on time and has performed exactly as advertised so far. I will have to give it a real stress test during hurricane season but it looks promising. Great bargain, useful product Even though backordered, I was kept informed about eta several times and given chance to back out. Glad I didnt. Great product, very happy with purchase Use product for power outages. When I go camping. Outside for Bar B Que days Excellent product Great product. Want to give to all my family!
