FR160 Microlink Weather Radio-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great emergency radio Husband loves it, great small size it works after barely even winding, plus has solar panels. The LED flashlight is nice and bright, great item to have on hand radio sound comes in clear. Everyone should have one of these, and Home Depot has the best price on this that I found online so definitely buy from here. It has a phone charger too we haven't had to use that but convenient if you're camping or something- I have read reviews saying you can't use iphones with the charger though so don't use the charger if you have an iphone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DO NOT USE THIS TO CHARGE IPHONE !!! ABSOLUTELY DO NOT USE THIS TO CHARGE AN IPHONE !!!! I have a 32GB 3GS that I purchased in February. I purchased the Eton Microlink FR160 for a Cub Scout campout to celebrate the 100 years of scouting. We were camping in a farm field with no access to electricity. When I used it to charge my iPhone, it FRIED IT! I mean no phone, all loss of data, completely black screen. The Apple store tried to due a hard reset and couldn't even get it to turn on. Thank goodness that the phone was still under warranty! Apple gave me a new phone, but I had to reload EVERYTHING! A HUGE time commitment and pain. Eton tech support was willing to replace iPhone, but emphasized to NOT USE this to charge an iPhone! All other features are awesome and weather band works great. I will keep it for that reason only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good emergency radio The quality of the radio seems adequate. I took it out of the box and cranked it for about 30 seconds to see if it would work. The light came on when I pressed the button and the radio picked up both FM and weather channels. The reception was not great until I got by a window, but then worked fine. Seems like a good deal for a device that I hope I never need to use. The price from Home Depot was great as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hope we never have to use it. The only reason I did not give this item 5 stars is because we haven't had the need to use it yet. It's small, compact, and has everything we need.
