great radio

What a great radio it gets great reception even in valleys that often muddle lesser radios. You get three options to power it four if you purchase a AC adapter. I have found it will even run directly from the solar panel even with the rechargeable battery removed. The crank charger works well I have been able to use it to charge various usb powered devices with great success. I'm very pleased with this radio

Worth the Price?

I've pondered whether or not this is worth the price. I've purchased both this one and subsequently the Voyager Pro when this one (I thought) stopped working. The one thing I realized is that with the Voyager Pro (digital dial), you drain more battery power with the backlit digital tuning dial and weather dial - and god forbid if that light goes out. You'd be stuck. Imo, the manual dial in the Voyager is probably more reliable and less prone to problems.

With BOTH of these radios, I had problems with them working properly - they seemed to randomly turn off and lose the connection to the station for some reason, and I've had to hit them lightly at times to turn the radio back on & re-gain the connection. Is it something I'm doing wrong? Don't know, but at this price I shouldn't be having these problems.

Still and all, I do like the Voyager and the Voyager Pro. They have everything I want in an emergency radio - weather band, AM/FM, Shortwave, and can be run by battery, solar, crank, or adaptor. Both have a tiltable solar panel, reading light, and a flashlight. The Voyager Pro also shows the temperature and humidity (read: extra drain on the battery).

If all of that appeals to you, try one of these out. But bear in mind that I also own a cheaper-made similar-type off-brand radio that as I recall cost me about $20 - and it works fine.

One thing is sure - these appear to be well made, and that is particularly true of the Voyager Pro, which has a body with a rubberized texture for extra protection. With all the problems I've had with both the Voyager and Voyager Pro, I'm glad I have them.

{Response from Emergency Essentials - Sandra, you make some good points, and they merit a response. With radios that have all of the features of the Voyager Pro - digital dial, weather band, and weather alerts - they are generally ones that only work when plugged into the wall. We like the added benefit of being able to offer these features in a portable unit using either the rechargeable battery (recharged by either the included handcrank or solar panel) or adding disposable alkaline batteries. The wall adaptor is in truth sold separately so you aren't forced to pay for it. If you are having difficulty however with either radio functioning properly, please let us know at 1-800-999-1863. As long as the units have sufficient power, they should be running without needing to bump them.}

Quality issue

I've owned this radio for about 2 years now and the clear plastic cover over solar panel is now opaque white rather than clear. Sun uv rays damage it. What the hey!

It does play on the emergency battery when charged with either the crank or the solar panel but the regular batterys have never charged. You have to charge them with an external source.

My complaint is that the quality should be absolutely first rate if it is to be used on an emergency basis. They really should solve the issues and then advertise that fact.

{Response from Emergency Essentials - Thanks for your review. You are correct that this unit does not charge regular batteries. The solar panel and hand crank are charging a built-in battery so that the unit will work even if you don't add the 3 AA batteries. We've updated our product information for better clarity. We are sorry to hear that your unit has been sun damaged. Kaito does offer a limited one year warranty on this radio, but we too want to take care of you. Please contact us directly and we will work with you to be sure you have a fully functioning unit that will work now and in the future. Thanks again for your review.}

Perfect so far

We've had several cheap crank radios, none of which kept battery power or had good radio reception. This radio is exactly what we should have bought when we first started. 100% satisfied. We bought it at $80 - at $50 it is an absolute steal.

Excellent prodct!

This is an excellent product, and I highly recommend it with no reservations. The only neg. thing is the dial is a little off the freq. you dial in (99.5 shows up 100.5 etc.) but that is no big deal. If lost or stolen I would certainly buy another. I got mine for hurricane season, and I am confident it will perform exactly as advertised. Great product!

Awesome Radio!

Just got it today and was very surprised to see it was no where near as bulky as I thought it would be. VERY impressed by the features and sounds great for such a small unit. Using the lamp now to type by... VERY well worth the money!

Great radio

Great radio. Took it out of the box, cranked it for a minute and presto! Stations are slightly off from the dial but not enough to worry about. Am and fm work like they should. Great emergency or camping or whatever radio.
