Pros:Extremely durable, compact, solar and crank powered, weather channels, and built-in flashlight.

Cons:None that I can find. 

The Bottom Line: This is a great little radio loaded with features and built to survive a tornado! I highly recommend it!


I bought this radio because I wanted a compact radio to carry along to football games. I really love the fact that you can turn the crank to charge the unit because batteries are expensive and mine always seemed to be dead when I was ready to head out to a game. But the reason I am writing this review is because of what happened at the last game I attended. I was standing at the top of a four story set of bleachers against the railing. When a fellow spectator asked to borrow my binoculars, I fumbled my grip on this radio ( I wasn't using the wrist strap...). Needless to say the unit bounced at my feet where the 2 knobs popped off, and then to my horror, it went right off the back of this 4-story grandstand and smashed violently on the asphalt far below. I figured the worst, but then a guy walked over and picked it up, looked up at me and yelled "It's still playing!!" I retrieved the knobs and ran down to get the radio. The only damage was a few scuff marks on the metal casing. I stuck the knobs back on and checked everything out. The radio still functions like new! If that is not quality craftsmanship I don't know what is! This radio has definately gained my respect.
