I purchased this in advance of any potential emergency. When I received it, I tried out each of the various functions so that I could be familiar with them in case I needed to use any of them. I generated the power by hand cranking the unit, as described, and it worked like a champ. I tested the flashlight function, the cell phone charger, the radio and the siren. I was happy with the performance of all of the functions.
After reading personal reviews of the RA Emergency Power Station, I ordered one for myself and several as gifts for family members. Everyone loved their power station and is happy to have one on hand for emergencies. I plan to buy a few more as birthday gifts for friends.
This combination power station is great. A few cranks of the handle and you have a great flashlight & radio. My only complaint is it came with a variety of adapter plugs for charging a cell phone, unfortunately none of them works with either of our cell phones which was one of the reasons I wanted the power station to begin with. I hope I can find one at the electronics store.
