The crank charges it quickly, the light is bright and a phone charging cord is included.
It would have been nice to have see a multi-function flashlight -- Constant/Flashing/SOS -- as well as a larger display since bright light is needed to read the display without having to turn on the radio to illuminate the screen
The flashlight works fine and has a fairly bright light - enough to let you navigate in the dark
The flashlight isn't very bright and the blinking red light is even less bright
On the good side, the radio seemed to work well and the LED light was adequately bright.
The NOAA weather band, the AM and the FM all have good reception and good sound
The radio portion works well, the sound is good and what you’d expect from a hand size portable radio
I was able to receive a bunch of local radio stations without extending the antenna, the weather station was loud and present the second I turned the unit to "on", and the sound wasn't bad given the size of the speaker!The buttons are easy to figure out and large enough to be seen by most anyone
The speaker puts out good, clear sound (it's not a Bose, but it's very good, better than my Sony radio cube).
This is really a great little radio and has a surprisingly good sound
The flashlight is nothing to write home about, I think the flashlight apps on my Iphone are brighter but if you don’t have any other light source for some reason it will do in a pinch.wwA carry strap is included and I noticed in some other reviews here that some folks are having a hard time getting the strap threaded through.
However, since it's an emergency backup device, the timing can be extremely unfortunate to find out you got a dud.
Again, if you dont try to turn it like an animal, it wont give you a hard time
The alarm has activated by itself afew time and that's no biggie
