Great in emergencies! This AM/FM Radio with NOAA, TV-VHF, Flashlight and cell-phone charger is all you need to survive the Apocalypse!
I spent a week without power and I was ever so glad I had a hand crank radio. There were no batteries to be had for miles around by the end of the first day. My little radio kept me connected and up-to-date throughout the week. We really bonded. But... I have to admit I'm trading it in for this baby- it has a built in cell-phone charger and comes with an array of tips for common brands, it gets AM/FM, shortwave and weatherband frequencies, and it has a spiffy little light (there were no more candles to be bought by day three). Time to upgrade!
IF YOU STAY READY YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO GET READY GET ONE OF THESE - OK I AM
