Thank you ...just got mine today...I like this very much...its fun and it comes with a lightning attaching for iphone...if you like playing with small solar tech... this is it when it does break.....built very sturdy.. 3 option to charge...
Thanks for the Lightening Adapter info. Never had an IPhone, now I know what the adapter is in the little zip baggie. Mine arrived today as well. Seems like a decent build. Everything works, radio reception is just ok. I didn't try reception outside the house.

I read these 18650 batteries are best stored around 50% charge for longevity. I guess that's fine for those that get a heads up about incoming storms so that you can fully charge the batteries beforehand. A bit of a dilemma for myself in earthquake country. I hope I never have to use it. It's going into my emergency / b.o.b.

Bought this, and returning it after half hour. Horrible reception. Everytime you touch the light, SOS, or backlight the radio plays static for 30 seconds. After you turn radio off, it somehow loses the station it was on. Horrible junk.

You probably received a defective unit. After putting a bit more of a charge on mine I sat down in my backyard patio. I couldn't duplicate any of your problems.

Inside reception in my So Cal house is 6/10, outside it is 7/10. The AM/FM tuner is very sensitive, you have to turn the tuning knob very slowly or you will run past a tunable radio station. Zero issues with static with the radio after turning the lights / SOS on then off. I brought in a weather station no problem.

$20 is fine for something I may well never need. This is probably a YMMV item based on the strength of radio signals in your area.

Had been looking at getting one of these for a little bit now. Glad this deal came up because most I've seen with the same features are in the $30-$40 range. It came in today and I was able to try out all the features except for using it to charge my phone. Radio seemed to work well on both the weather band and FM stations. The LED lights seemed reasonably powerful. Crank-charging and wall charging both worked. The SoS feature is very loud and I think would be very helpful in some situations.

This was bought as camping radio. I have Sony 7600GR and another ICFP26 for pocket listening and live in major metro close to radio stations. ICFP26 picks up everything, this radio is junk in comparison.

This is one of those things that looks crappy on the surface, but can be turned into something rather useful. The product is probably just fine as an emergency radio, flashlight, and cell phone charger with one exception: the battery. At this price, the battery is guaranteed to be utter rubbish and this claim of 4000 mAh is impossible. But, they made this one with easy access to the battery and it's a common 18650. Use an external charger with a decent battery (like a Samsung 30Q) and you're ready.
The quality of the device is really good, I wasn't expecting that it has 2 18650 batteries, so I believe that the battery capacity of 4000mah is real, good product for the price.

I think the Sony 7600GR was a $800 SHORTWAVE radio, so I hope you get better reception with that than with this am/fm radio on this $18.95 solar/radio/light/generator.

The shortwave will be much better at getting distant radio signals than any am/fm radio. While your other Sony ICFP26 is a closer match at just a little more in price, and will do a much better job as well with in-town am/fm reception, it may also have trouble pulling in radio stations when you're out camping. But, for everyday radio listening to local am/fm stations, yeah, you are better off with soemthing like the Sony ICFP26.

At least where I and maybe many others go camping, it's usually very difficult to get good radio reception out in the wilderness, so using the unit in this deal as a camping radio may be a slight miscalculation. Your shortwave radio will do better. But, take into consideration the last thing neighboring campers want to hear in the backcountry or at a campground is someone next to them playing the radio when they're trying to enjoy the quiet sounds of nature. Wink

Oh, by the way, does your Sony 7600GR or ICFP26 receive NOAA broadcasts around 162.400 to 165.500 MHz? Hmmm, I thought not.

The radio on this $18.95 unit supposedly does receive NOAA Emergency channels, so it may help a bit during weather emergencies [in town, that is--I wouldn''t expect it to pull NOAA broadcasts out in the wilderness]. Either way, you're more likely to get better, and more timely information through your cell data on your phone, if you are within cell network range.

It may not work well for regular radio listening but at least it may cover the NOAA channels. If one really needs reliable access to NOAA channels, or listen in to stations located a distance from metropolitan areas, or wanst one that tunes better and has better reception, one probably should look elsewhere.

Early impression is it works as advertised so I am happy with this product to be used primarily for camping. For home power outages I have better flashlights and radios but even then, this is worth having for $19 in my opinion. I don't have much experience with 18650 batteries so I am going to read about what to expect and how to use the batteries, for camping, I know I will just charge a day or two before leaving. Sitting around the house for emergency use, charge once a year, twice a year or every month? It isn't going to be used daily, only rarely so when needed it has to work, only time will tell and I think this is worth the risk for that purpose.
