On the ninth day of Christmas, Emergency Essentials gave to me . . . the gift of communication.
Today’s giveaway item is the Kaito Voyager V1 Dynamo and Solar Shortwave Radio/Flashlight.
The word “dynamo” is a good description for this small but powerful multi-featured radio and flashlight. It accesses both regular AM/FM and shortwave bands to give you a constant stream of weather updates, warnings, and forecasts.
The flashlight has a super-bright LED light with a USB port to power small electronic devices, including most smartphones (it does not power Apple products). The Kaito Voyager has a built-in HD speaker and headphone jack so you can listen to your music or forecasts alone or with your family, friends, and neighbors.
Keep your radio charged using one of four options for powering this radio’s internal battery. These four charging options include:
- 3 standard AAA batteries
- Solar power, via a built-in solar panel
- Through the USB port
- By hand cranking: one minute of cranking provides fifteen minutes of listening or one hour of light
The value of this 9th Day of Christmas gift is $21.99—unless you’re in a situation where you’ll depend upon it—then it’s priceless! This gift is great for camping, outdoor adventures, or to use in an emergency.
