NOAA Weather Alert Radio

Kaito Voyager KA500 Solar/Crank Emergency AM/FM/SW NOAA Weather Alert Radio

  • When the Unexpected happens You Better be ready - 11 Bands + NOAA Westher Alerts + Shortwave
  • 11 Bands - AM/FM, Shortwave SW1 & SW2 plus 7 weather bands

  • 4 Way Power: Solar, hand crank, 3 "AA" (not incld), AC Adapter (not included) USB port for charging

The good:
  • The radio itself does the job
  • Accessory shortwave antenna available for additional purchase.
  • Obviously, the multiple charging methods - solar/crank/AC/DC
  • Lightweight enough
  • It comes in CAMO!
The bad:
  • Product is bigger than expected
  • Cheap plastic crap feel
  • Was not holding much of a charge after sitting in full sun for 6hrs then hand cranked for 30 minutes - ended up having to buy the 6V charger separate.
  • You have to buy the 6V charger separate
  • Sound quality is pretty bad, as expected though.
Bottom-line: This Noaa Weather Alert Radio Worth the money so far.
