|Well, I took it out of the small box which surprised me at first because I thought the radio would be much bigger, but I was pleasantly surprised to witness a mini-green-radio come out, I mean this thing doesn't even need a carrying handle, but it comes with one attached anyway. My brother and I laughed as we cranked the small handle for not even a minute and it almost gave us 30 minutes of power. Just crank this little-son-of-gun for no more than a couple of minutes and you should have power for an hour or over.
I picked up Chinese, Japanese, and euro channels. The weather-bands were clear and I did receive other clear broadcasts. I don't know why people gave this radio so many bad reviews, this thing is meant for emergencies, and at that it does more than exceed my expectations. CTD did it again.|
