        This is the second one of these small Eton's that I have bought. I used the first one 2 years ago during an eight day power outage, and it was great. The radio picks up stations well. I live in Northern Westchester, and only good radios pick up the NYC stations here, and this one does. It also get's the local weather bands which is great in emergencies. The flashlight is not so bright that you will throw out the one your using, but it throws decent light. I've used it to charge an iPhone 4s and a 5s. It worked on both of them, but just be aware that this doesn't do a "Dump Charge". You don't plug your iPhone in and walk away, you crank it to charge the iPhone, and you would be cranking for a long time just to get a couple of minutes of talk time. That's ok though, it's meant for emergencies. I keep my first one in the house, and I ordered the second for the car.

        I use this product to listen to AM/FM radio. Problem I noticed is the solar cell on top doen't charge under house hold lighting or the battery inside doen't hold the charge, even after cranking 50 times, longer than a few minutes. Most aparatus with solar cells charges uner normal house lighting. Initially, when I received the radio the charge was holding and the radio worked well. I am not pleased with the performance of the battery.

                This was the product that was listed as a necessity if we ever had an emergency where all power was out for an extended period of time. I was watching for this radio in adds...this is the first one I came across. I think it will do the trick when needed. And the price was right!
