be prepared, the end is near!Feb 14, 2011
Although I ordered this product because I felt it would be good to have a radio during power outages and storms, and of course the upcoming 2012 Mayan event(?!) when it arrived, I was quite dissapointed. it looks rather cool with it's sort of retro look, which honestly, is why I chose this one, but unfortunately, it simply did not work. The hand crank was a bit awkward, and it never made any kind of sound, no matter how long I cranked it, which is probably one of the key things you want a radio to do... make sound, right? I don't know if it was defective, or simply not powerful enough to pick up any kind of radio signals, but regardless of it's issue, I just returned the thing. I had looked at all of the crank radios on Amazon and felt this one was the best looking, but knew in my gut that it was not going to be all that functional, since it didn't even have the NOAA weatherband ability, like many others. it was inexpensive enough, but this will not save your life in any kind of apocalyptic disaster, but it sure looked nice.

after 2 uses, the crank broke. the only reason i bought this was because of the crank factor. never again! buyers beware.
