I haven't had an occsion to need to use this yet, but my son tried it and he says it's exactly whtat I need should we lose power in a storm. So, obviously, I'll keep it for emergencies. That was my reason for ordering it.......the hand crank could be crucial if needed. I continue to find good buys at Overstock and shop there on a regular basis. I've placed at least 12 items this past 8 months.
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.
This is a handy little gadget that should be in every home. Having the radio alone is worth the price. This has been a mild winter but last year we lost our power at least twice and with this product I will have a radio and phone charger that will work because it needs no electricity or batteries. Just a few cranks and this cranky old guy will be all set.
