A Very good emergency toolSep 24, 2005
By Bryan K. Jones
I bought the Kaito KA888 radio a couple of weeks ago for
shortwave and in case of an emergency. It is a real nice
radio for emergencys with its features, the compass,time,
temperture,and a perfect bright light during night or
black outs.The radio is pretty good and smooth.The KA888
has AM,FM and shortwave (4bands) with quality sound on FM
AM. The shortwave is ok and not the most clearest,but this
specialliaces on being for emergencys.Which its very good
for that.I kept the radio for about a week and returned it
for the KA077 emergency radio because it covered more bands
like VHF,TV,and weather bands.For me I liked this one better
for my interest and needs.I would say that both radios are
nice.It just depends what you need and want.The KA888and
KA077 are good quality radios for a good price.

Wonderful Life SaverDec 10, 2008
By Bill McLean
"Just My Opinion."
This little jewel will not only entertain you with your favorite radio station, it will also give you rather decent light and will sound a very loud alarm so that you can be rescued. It will also tell you the ambient temperature and will even tell you the time.
No, it is not a high tech digital radio that can scan the tropics of radio transmissions and provide incredible reception, but it really does the job it was designed to do. It will light your way. It will connect you with world band radio. It will scream a loud siren to help you be found among the rubble that once was your home. It will comfort you. And, if you haven't even given it alkaline batteries, all you have to do is turn the crank. Miracle of miracles, this little radio will love you.

disappointingSep 12, 2005
ordered the Kaito KA888 emergency radio for a present. It worked for exactly one day, then the AC adaptor died, making it impossible to use the radio on current or recharge it. Then the solar function stopped a few days later.
I have been in contact with the company and am returning it for a replacement, as that first day was wonderful.
I'll let you know if the replacement one works.
very disappointing so far.

A good portable emergency radio can be powered by many sources!Jun 04, 2012
We picked up two of these at a clearance sale and they are good radios. I liked the fact that they can be operated by so many power sources. Usually when we have very bad weather we can lose power and knowing that you can just crank this radio and operate it keeps us in touch with the radio and emergency channels. You also have a pretty good flash light for use during the power outage issues.
The second radio is one we can use for being outside at a picnic or traveling. We don't camp but it would be ideal for that also. I like when you are outside that it can charge via the solar panel on the top of the radio. Sometimes I even just set the home one in the window to have it charge up instead of cranking it.
I like the storage compartment and I keep a few waterproof matches in there for starting fires or grills. We have had no issues with our radios and they are several years old. The radio reception is very good and if you even need it there is a pop-up extendable antenna.
Overall this is a good emergency radio that is lightweight and portable. We like ours.
