I bought this through Amazon for $49.98

I just want to save everyone this time, trouble and disappointment with this radio. It DOES NOT charge your cell phone. The solar panel doesn’t charge the radio and the crank barely does any for the radio charge. I can only pick up 1 NOAA station. Short wave is terrible also. DO NOT waste your money on this radio!

Basic Survival Radio

I got this radio to play when I have to be out on a stake out waiting to serve legal process. It works well but rarely picks up any short wave stations.

Don't waste your money......

This was a gift (new) from someone I care about very much. But, I have found better radios in the free box at a yard sale. Crank for 10 minutes and get 5 minutes of reception. The solar panel is so weak that it won't power the radio even it bright sunlight. I have an old "Outrider" that will not only play in sunlight, but it also charges the battery in less than an hour.

For the price and what it has, it's a must have for emergencies. Actually the cost of this model is comparable to the local big box stores!
