The radio works well. The weather channels are all but non-existent. But the big thing about this hand-crank device is that they "say" it will recharge your cell phone. It won't! Or at least not without some obscure type of adapter -- that neither Overstock nor the importer sells. I called the importer. They suggested that I go look in ****. :-( For the price it's probably worth keeping just for the emergency radio. Just disappointed about the rest.
Wow, what a great item! I live in Florida, we have weather that causes power outages with this emergency radio I know I will not be with out the news in an emergency situation. With everything that has been happening all over the planet emergency preparedness has never been more important! I took this out of the package and tried it, it worked beautifully. I also bought the hand crank lanterns so I can have light and I am just blown away by how great these items are. Why don't they make more human powered appliances? I think everyone should have at least these two items in their homes for emergencies. I just bought myself peace of mind, PRICELESS! Thank you Overstock for selling such wonderful items. I love shopping here!
