FAQ (frequently asked questions)
Top of page

How is this Emergency Radio powered?

There are four sources of power for this radio. Firstly and foremostly is the revolutionary generator: a unique dynamo mechanism that captures your own human energy as you turn the winding handle. This energy is then directed towards towards powering the radio.

Radio operation time depends on the number of wind-up turns and time per turn. Winding for just 60-90 quick turns (at say two turns per second) will provide up to 20 minutes of play time.

Secondly, the radio can be powered by the sun using the built-in solar panel. When in sunny location, built-in solar panel will directly power radio when in use or charge it when turned off. 12 hours in the sun will provide you with 6-8 hours playing time.Thirdly, the radio can be run using normal batteries (3 x AA, not supplied).

Finally, the radio can be powered or charged using a plug-in 4.5V AC/DC adapter (included) . There is a jack location for the adapter in the back of the radio.

An optional car adapter could also be used.

How well does the radio receive and play?

The AM/FM/SW1/SW2 receiver picks up stations incredibly well. The frequency range is for FM: 88-108MHz, for AM: 530-1710KHz, for SW1: 6.00- 12 MHz, and for SW2: 12.00- 18 MHz. There is an internal AM antenna and an external telescopic and rotating FM antenna. Short Wave stations from around the world tend to have stronger reception at night. Orient the radio for optimum performance and tune in using the sensitive tuning control knob. The 2.5" speaker (0.5 W at 8 Ohms) provides a good tonal sound and volume.

Our Considered Comments

Take our advice: always be prepared by keeping an emergency self-powered short wave radio on hand.

It is important to have a dependable, working radio at hand in case of emergency. In the event of a power failure caused by a natural disaster (eg ice storm, earthquake) or other emergency, you will need to keep in touch with what is happening by monitoring the radio.

Dead batteries or no batteries are not options! A Self-Powered radio does away with these uncertainties. You have a quality radio always working when you need it. And you can tune into radio broadcasts from all over the world on the short wave bands.

And it is very handy and fun to take a Wind-up Radio with you to the cottage, lakeside, beach, ice fishing, camping-- or wherever for your listening pleasure. Just pick it up and go. No need to worry about batteries as the radio runs by its own "wind up" or solar power. You can even use it with regular batteries or by plugging it in with the included DC adapter.

We were very impressed by the quality of the radio's reception and sound. The speaker gave off a fine listening sound and good range in volume which made it suitable for outdoor use. It was tried and tested by our staff on the beach, at home and in a canoe! The radio played very well in all trial conditions. The built-in compass, thermometer, digital clock are useful features. Into the special storage compartment with screw-on lid, we put bandages, insect repellent, sun tan lotion etc... The casing is strong and durable. The wind up mechanism was easy and quick. The solar panel will run or charge the radio when exposed to direct sunlight. In our trials, the length of play from a wind-up exceeded the claims of the manufacturer. It was unbelievable how long the radio played when it was fully charged.

We carry the Emergency Self-Powered Short Wave Radio because it is clearly a quality product made by a well-known company and represents excellent value for money. It is a serious bit of equipment derived from excellent technology and design. In a crisis or emergency, it would be essential and reliable for survival. This is aside from its obvious recreational use.
