    A normal radio. Long went right. It's a safe and sound, in the industrial packaging. Everything works fine. Sound is clean, not hi fi but for such devaysa quite decorous. Pleasant to the touch, visual inspection "stocks" were found. Admission confident even with the folded antenna (in the apartment on the 9th floor). Recharged by solar panels ... Read more

    Excellent. I could receive > 50 stations in Alkmaar. Both solar charger and crank charger work well. Simple to use. Sound quality is rough. Not a good buy if hi-fidelity is your thing! It's really plus is that no batteries are ever needed to operate this thing. Makes it ideal for a camping trip or a survival kit! My father-in-law thought it was so ... Read more

    Seems like good build quality. Reception is good. Crank feels solid when used. Telescope antenna is long enough to catch all the "wonderful waves" in the air (Cited from the manual) The tuning button is a bit tight when turning, but it works. The radio was packaged in somewhat hard plastic, which protects it a bit I guess. Mine came without ... Read more

    This portable radio is made of a very nice-touching material and is build well. Nothing on it will disclose the country of origin because it is a high-quality made product! The awesomeness of this radio is that it has an infinite source of power - you can charge it in any way you want - either from sun/light or from USB port or even by hand! Radio has ... Read more

    Pretty simple radio, works great and gets charged just by sitting on my window. I have not tested the usb charging feature but cranking works ok. small enough to carry it in a jacket pocket or bag there will be distortion when listening at maximum volume, but's pretty loud for listening from one room to another. fm tuning is pretty sensitive, it's hard ...

    I used it camping and received a number or radio stations in Country Australia (Bathurst 1000 race) AM and FM. Good recharge from sunlight and hand cranking if required. As a small portal radio not much size is too large for a shirt pocket, I improved this by buying a small camera bag from DX which worked well. I used ear-buds and a camera bag to make ... Read more

    A perfect back-up radio: it is lightweight, does not need batteries, works remarkably long on a one minte crank (much longer than the indicated 20 minutes). fairly small as well, so easy to store somewhere or keep in your emergency kit or backpack. It has a small indicator light which assure you when you ahve enough light and the device is charging.... Read more

    Good build-quality It looks sturdy It has all the functions you need Small size, easy to carry with you No batteries needed. it has three possible power inputs: solar, usb or manual labor The frequencies may be a little close to eachother, making it a little hard to find your favorite channel. I bought it as a radio to keep in my emergency kit. So it ... Read more

    + Nice small portable size. Picture from DX is a bit deceiving, as it appears bigger than it actually is (as other reviewer noted) - see picture with camera and measuring tape for actual reference. + Nice "velvet" touch to the plastic casing. + Solid feel with solid controls. The AM/FM switch looks better than in the DX picture. The switch ... Read more

    Small (palm sized - photos make it look big), well built satin finish plastic casing. Good reception on AM and FM (if FM stations are well separated!) and speaker is quite loud - easily heard at partial volume with little distortion in adjacent rooms. Quite acceptable for background listening. It's on partial volume 2 rooms away and I can hear it clearly.... Read more
