          Great Weather Radio
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The WeatherX Weatherband & AM/FM Flashlight is a very useful radio, not only you can be weather aware but you can also listens to AM & FM radio. It can also be use as an external speaker when connected with your phone. It’s also a flashlight and a portable charger for your phone or other devices via USV. It’s solar and also works with a grank hand power so if there is a power outage this radio flashlight could come in handy. It feels sturdy and durable and it’s a great quality product.

            Works Great
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am loving this little WeatherX. Here we love going to the beach and parks also we live in a weather change state and this little radio comes in handy. It is a weatherband and am/fm radio with a flashlight.and what I love is that you can use it with a rechargable battery, a normal battery or you can hand crank it. One feature that is great is that it also has a solar charging panel and it works awesome.Also for emergency it has a emergency siren. Overall this is a great peace to have in your emergency bag or bugout bag.

              Decent gadget
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great little emergency gadget but it isn't like the old ones that were just a light or radio. This one has USB charging ports, a solar panel for charging in the sun, siren, light....it is quite an upgrade. This is perfect for home, vehicle, camping, bug out bags or really anywhere that you can think of. I would recommend if nothing more than being able to charge your phone in emergency situations. Definitely worth it.

                  Compact and useful
                  I purchased this since I live in Florida and hurricane season is coming up. Its very compact and can take power from a USB, batteries, crank, or solar panel. It has room for non-rechargable batteries and comes with a large recharable battery (that can be replaced). Its got a decent light on it and both AM/FM radio and siren. This is must have if you live in an area with bad weather or you like to go camping.

                    Great features!
                    Great little weather and am/fm radio with flashlight. The light works great and so does the radio. The model I have comes with a solar rechargeable battery and it uses 3 AAA batteries. It's a great device with back up solar rechargeable battery and it charges your cell phone too. It has many great features.
