Product Review: Wavelength™ Emergency Radio, Charger & Flashlight

August 5, 2009 | 8 comment(s)

The Wavelength™ is a crucial emergency preparedness item. It is an AM/FM radio, a cell phone charger and a rechargeable flashlight all in one!

A hand crank charges the built-in Nickel Metal Hydride battery. The battery will run the radio for up to 12 minutes from just 1 minute of cranking.

One of the unique features of the Wavelength™ is its ability to charge a cell phone with its universal charging cable. Unlike other cell phone chargers, the Wavelength™ comes with a cable that looks just like your car's power outlet. This allows you to plug in phones, PDA's, and other electronics that have car-charging cables. Simply connect the included cable into the Wavelength™, plug in your car charging cable, then plug in the electronic device and begin cranking. It's that easy! The unit sends the electricity to your device as long as you crank at the rate of two turns per second. The Wavelength™ isn't any faster at charging your electronics than your car, so if you have a very low battery, you'll have to crank for a while to get a full charge. But in an emergency you should get about 3 minutes of talk-time for every minute of cranking.

There is also a 3 LED flashlight that toggles between two brightness settings. The flashlight will stay on for up to 30 minutes on the low setting (only using 1 LED bulb) for every minute of cranking.

We highly recommend that you include the Wavelength™ Emergency Radio, Charger & Flashlight in your emergency supplies.

    I like the fact that this comes with the car-cable connector. This way we don't have to worry about the hassle of "Will this fit my device?"

    We have one of these. It is a great product.

    Is it EMP proof? Will the radio's charger's and flashlights that Emergency Essentials still work in a Electromagnetic Pulse situation?

  • Tammy  |  August 18, 2009

    It's probably not. I haven't been able to find any radios or chargers made today that are EMP proof. An old tube radio (like one made in the 50's) would work, or you can build a Faraday cage and put your radio in that.

    I am very interested in the faraday cage. Please explain.

    You can build a simple Faraday cage at home that is supposed to protect a radio from an EMP. You can find some examples of how to build one on the internet.
