I have been very happy with this radio - very nice quality, sound, reception, etc. It charges via solar very efficiently and the battery option has held up well using rechargeable AA's. I have not used the winding handle for charging - no reason to, but I do take the other reviews raising questions about a plastic winding handle...if I used that option I would just take care in using it. What would make this the ultimate "perfect" radio would be automatic NOAA warnings triggered by weather events...and even short wave bands - but I've had this now for a few months and I' very happy with it's performance!

I reviewed this radio back in 2012, and it's still working well. It sits on my sunporch and uses its solar panel most of the time for charging. Still has the same rechargeable batteries in it, that it came with. Originally I gave it 4 stars, but it works so well I bumped it up to 5 stars
nice little radio

I am a fan of AM radio, and did not have a radio that could tune in my favorite stations on vacation; I took this radio to put it to the test at an Alabama beach at night. It was able to receive ALL of my favorite stations at night, and that was AWESOME!

We're very pleased with this radio. I bought a similar but cheaper one elsewhere that wasn't able to receive the weather band. I bought this one a few weeks later and it works great! Definitely worth paying a few bucks more for a higher quality product...

We haven't had this radio very long yet, but I think it will be with us for a long time. As we have reduced our use of on-grid electricity in a lot of other areas, we found ourselves wanting a good ol' radio; this was just the thing! We've been amazed at how easy it is to tune into a station and the solar power is just fabulous. We haven't used it to charge cell phones or anything yet, but it's nice to have to option, just in case. Lehman's has supplied a wonderful product once again. Thanks!

I love having such a portable radio that requires no electricity! I can hear the weather and pick up regular stations no matter where I am!

Just received my new radio and am pretty happy with it. The tuner is much higher quality than I was expecting. It was actually picking up signals from a city about 300 miles from where I live. My only complaint is the handle for the dynamo is plastic and could probably be broken easily if dropped or abused. One nice feature I wasn't aware of when I ordered, it has a backlight setting for the radio display. Overall a good product for the money.
