So I pulled the trigger w/ low expectations and am I glad I did. These FR-160's are ideal for their purpose: they provide basic lighting & communication (read: radio/weather) in case of emergency. The quality was shockingly good for only $30. And they're small -- pretend your hand is in a mitten and subtract your thumb...about that size. They're not meant to provide music for a party so don't expect it amazing quality sound. They're not designed to be used on the ocean as your boat's only radio. Don't drop it off a cliff and expect it to be good as new. They're designed to be a compact combination radio/flashlight that can be a lifesaver if you ever need it.
The sound quality is actually not bad for this little radio. The reception is pretty good too. I have the red version and love the color and also that it stands out and easy to see. The markings are a little hard to see if you wear glasses and you happen to loose them during an emergency or your glasses happen to get damaged. I have only had this for a few days but have used it in my office to listen to both AM and FM stations . No problem picking up the weather bands either. I live 25 miles outside of Nashville so I am fairly close to a big city. The flashlight seems to work good too, but it is a very basic light and will work in a pinch. I like the fact that it is compact and will travel and pack well in a small bag or a suitcase. Leaving on a cruise for 2 weeks and love to see if I can pick anything up when traveling around the Caribbean Islands. Hope this review helps and I would definitely recommend to keep on hand if the power went out and need to get weather updates, or to take with you when you travel. Got mine for thirteen bucks on deals and consider this a bargain for that price.
This feature works very well. It makes it a green product, since you save loads of batteries, just using the handle to charge it. One thing we notice though, was during our last camping trip, a winter one. The temperatures was below freezing (around 29'F/-2'C) and the radio was working perfectly fine, but the battery would last less longer (wich is not exactly a major problem). So if you are planning to use it for winter camping, be advised that you may need to recharge it more often.
The other reason I bought it would be to charge my cellphone just using the solar power charge. This does not work. To charge your cellphone for up to a minute of talking, you need to spin the handle for more than 15 minutes. The instruction manual does not even mention that you can charge your cellphone using solar power.
By the way, the instruction manual is terrible. It does not provide answers for half of the questions we had about the product, and left us to find out by using the product.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase.
(Having purchased this radio as part of of camping/emergency gear in April 2011 we had no idea how important it would become)
Twelve hours after the fire began our local power company cut the juice to our neighborhood.
We pulled this radio out of our Bug Out Bag and after a few cranks we were able to tune into our local emergency channel.
After several anxious hours we were able to inform our friends/neighbors of our cities evacuation plan.
This radio never failed us. It ran for extended periods of time on several cranks.
I forgot to mention just weeks before this wildfire/evacuation we took it tent camping in the Jemez Mountains of NM.
We enjoyed great reception (AM/FM) music and news on demand in these same mountains (8000ft above sea level) that catastrophically
burned two weeks later.
Don't hesitate to purchase this little work horse!
The reason for this late review? We are leaving for Crested Butte Colorado in August for a Cabin/Hiking Trip, won't leave without it!
Buying another for my car just in case of emergencies.
It's simple, easy to operate and a must for everyone requiring a simple method of receiving Emergency Communications as well as AM/FM
Radio. By the way I am Pleased to report it still works like new after 4 years!
