Field testing and final review of the Meco hand crank solar chargeable emergency survival radio. Read full article: http://www.thedoityourselfworld.com/articles/article.php?id=11570
I have been using this radio for about two months now and feel confident that I can give you an honest review at this time.
During this period I have kept the radio charged up exclusively with the solar cell on top of the device. We use the radio to check the weather reports before we start our day. Then the radio sits on a window ledge to get charged up by the sun.
This radio can also be charged by two other methods. You can charge it up with the included USB cable and you can use the hand crank to charge it up.
The USB charging port is cool for us because we generally take a folding solar panel with us on trips. The folding solar panel has USB outputs so it can charge this radio for us.
The hand crank is great for real survival situations. With its small size and light weight, you could rely on this emergency radio alone due to the LED light on the front and the multiple charging options along with the emergency radio.
One very cool feature of this hand crank survival radio is the charging output port which can charge up your cell phone or other small portable devices. In an emergency all you have to do is crank this up and charge your cell phone to call for help or use the GPS to find your way home if lost.
This radio can not only help light up your path in the night but it can keep your GPS going to show the way to go. This is a great feature.
We used the weather radio quite a bit and it brings in a good, strong signal. I have used other weather radios that did not perform near as good as this one.
Out in the woods in a log cabin this brought in a very good signal. When camping or hiking this is a great tool to have on hand to keep you informed of any coming storms or weather patterns.
This device will be part of our bug out bag from now on.
