Rated 5 out of 5 by RIOlga Superior Emergency Radio
This radio/flashlight is even better than I thought it would be. In addition to having it available for an emergency, I use the radio every day in the kitchen where I get poor reception for the local NPR radio station when I use a plug-into-the-wall radio.
I also want to commend the speedy delivery. I ordered on a Saturday afternoon, and I had the radio on Monday! It was processed over the weekend!

The radio works great and I charged it through my computer as it comes with the usb cord in addition to be able to charge it through the crank. The radio stations are clear and also it is great having the light. Great buy and so glad I made the purchase.

I get better reception on this little thing than on my larger plug-ins. Small, compact, easy to use, dependable . . . who could ask for more??? Yellow, of course!!!

The radio worked very well on an NPR station for several hours after only 5 minutes of cranking.

I love this radio, wind it up and it charges it's self. Eton Corporation will send you the proper adapter to connect your cell phone to the radio to charge the cell phone in case of a power outage. How cool is that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldSGM Meets expectations...almost
Although new, everything I got the radio for seems to work fine. My only concern is the plastic charging crank. Maybe it's strengthened internally by metal but doesn't feel like it. Otherwise, I like it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Merc78 Works as intended
The radio, for the price, is not a bad deal. My biggest concern is that it doesn't seem strong enough to pick up many stations where I live. Other than that it is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissMich Nice little crank radio and flashlight
After several huge storms hit Michigan this summer, my husband and I decided we needed to spruce up our emergency preparations. This little radio is great. Easy to crank, and I like the additional USB cord so that we can charge it in our cars or with the computer. I purchased the bright yellow so that we can find it quickly when the power goes out. I fully charged it the other day with the USB cord, and we got a full day;s worth (at least 12 hours) of AM play time on medium volume. It picks up both AM and FM here in Metro Detroit along with the weather alert channel. My only complaint was that the USB cable was a little hard to attach to the radio. But I managed with some wiggling and some patience. Flashlight is nice and bright as well. I highly recommend - great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nanugran The Weather Band Works
If you only want the Weather Band with the electrical backup that Eton offers, then this radio may satisfy your needs. The AM and FM bands are almost useless. The FM band does not reject nearby frequencies when you try to tune a station, and the dial is virtually no help in finding a desired station. The AM band on the radio I received does not receive any AM stations except at the very upper end of the AM band - and then poorly. The radio was a nice idea but poorly executed - it does not reflect the quality of product that one expects from L.L.Bean.
