I have to say what a neat product the MECO Emergency Radio is. Not only can you plug it into your laptop to charge it via the USB cable, but also put it outside in the sun, as it has a solar panel, and thirdly hand crank it.
All of these will enable you to use the radio, as well as the really bright flashlight, and also it can be used as a power bank. The radio works really well, as you can see in my short video.
It has a sturdy plastic exterior to protect the radio/flashlight/power bank. The red and black makes it show up well. The dials are easy to turn, and it is easy to read on the radio itself. It does come with a leaflet that gives you more detailed information. I have tried all the channels, and they are loud and clear with the antenna up. I am pleased to say that it works great on the weather channel.
The Flashlight has a push button on top of the radio, and it has 3 brilliant white lights.
The hand crank is simple to use, and takes very little effort.
Overall this is a must have product for a Hurricane Kit. I wish I had this emergency radio when Hurricane Irma came, and we were without power for several days.
I did receive this product at a discounted price, but after seeing all that it can do, I would be very happy to pay the full retail price for it.
