    In my last thread, Nomad, 2nd said I need to make it a little longer, so here I go. For April 2017 I decided to focus on rechargeable USB devices. Rather than going with a large 12 volt panel, to a charge controller, and then to a battery, I decided to go dabble in a solar panel that has USB...

    Overall, I am not happy with the Kaito KA500. FM reception is pretty bad and the battery pack is only 600 mah.

    If anyone is looking for a nice little radio to put back with there emergency supplies here's one to consider. I just got it and it does everything they say it will. I played with the short wave side band or whatever it is and I got a lot of people speaking in metric or something I can't...

    Hi Folks...thanks in advance for your help. 1.) Can anyone recommend a decent solar/hand crank radio? I found this one for $34 and it looks like a winner but I'd love some advice from someone who currently uses one and can recommend one? I found this thread but would like your input further...

    Found a used Grundig FR200 in great shape on Craigslist for $15. I don't know a lot about these but googled some reviews and seems like knowledgable people speak highly of it. For now, its my only emergency radio, so its better than nothing and I got it dirt cheap :D:

    I was looking at radio/charger and now it's not available. Does anyone know of a comparable radio that is freely available at a similar price. The one cool thing about it is it has cell phone charges included.

    I saw a link for this product, and I'm interested in getting a solar powered radio or two for the BOB, and apartment. If anyone has used this item, let me know your thoughts, or if you could recommend a better model. Here are the links...

    So I will start with the apology. I am on many forums and I am about to break all the rules. I have only been searching for about an hour and I am giving up. I just want someone to tell me what the BEST is. Yes, this is my first post. Sorry. I am looking for the best portable emergency...

    I bought 2 radios today. one is a emergency radio from ETON. It is oneof the simple American Red Cross radios with weather/AM/FM. It also has weather alert function. It is solar powered, has a hand crank and can charge my cell phone and FRS radio using USB and the hand crank. I turned on...

    While on a camping trip with a buddy this weekend, I had a small lapse of gear envy. We were at our camping spot, relaxing, doing some fishing, when my buddy pulls out his am/fm/weather radio. The radio is a Kaito Electronics Voyager. So my buddy starts telling me about the radio - its solar...

    Hey everyone, I'm looking to see what your suggestions are for an emergency radio? I see Eton has a couple, even some with built in GMRS, but they have bad ratings on Amazon. I like the idea of GMRS on a solar powered / crank powered unit, saves the need for additional batteries if possible...

    I believe I've narrowed my choices down to two radios for emergencies. Both have dynamo charging capabilies, built in flashlights and cell-phone chargers, and NOAA frequencies. I like this one for the fact that it has a GMRS radio built in. I like this one because it has a solar charger and...

    I found a nifty hand crank AM/FM/WB radio at CVS for only $10. If you are prepping on a budget, this might fit the bill: Emergency Radio Review: Battery Free Crank Radio From Innovage Outdoor I think it is a pretty good deal for the price. :thumb:

    I'm on my second (failed) emergency radio and looking for better options. First one I had was Eton fr250 with a crank and it failed both electrically and structurally (very poor battery door design) with normal at-the-house use. Got a second radio Eton fr150 at Cabellas with crank power AND...
