That looks really huge, at least in the picture. Can you compare it to the portable one as per op

Its definitely not something you would put in your pocket. But it works great. I never have to worry about charging it. Just put it in the sun lol.

Some of the reviews on this talk of cheap build quality. Could be an issue when cranking in an emergency.

I'd rather not buy something Red Cross branded. They have a history of throwing stuff away if it doesn't have their name on it for disaster responses.

I made the bittersweet decision to give blood a few years back. Then I went through hell to get the Red Cross to stop harassing me with phone calls. If I buy this, it just might give them reason to start the whole cycle all over again.

I'd recommend one of those foldable solar panels and a charging battery.

A lot of the Amazon reviews are awful. Sounds flimsy and poorly made/designed. Also a B on fakespot.

I have a similar one from LLBean. After a year or so the plastic crank broke under normal use. I used this very rarely. Most often I would just crank it up to see if it still worked. Until they make one with a metal crank, I'd pass.
