Size Name: Hybrid: Windup/Solar Radio Verified Purchase
I previously purchased a "wind up radio" from a large electrical high street outlet, no names of course (Maplin) and it said on the packet "One 1 minute wind will give half an hour of radio play " really? not in this dimension, you were lucky to get 3 minutes of playing time!!!

So i was understandably wary of another wind up radio, but having read the reviews I thought it worth speculation with another £15 or so.
And i must say its marvelous, give it an overnight charge via USB and al you need do after that is leave it @ an area where the blue charger light will light up and Voila its charging viz the solar panel.

Super smashing Lovely
Im going to invest in another one for my duaghter coz she keeps using mine and changing the channel from Radio Scotland or Radio 4 to some infernal pop music rubbish-lol
regards to all

This little radio as been so well liked in developing countries that I have left them as presents: one in India, the other in a remote village in South America. What did attract them was the lack of use of electricity and being powered by sun, which is PLENTY in those countries

very good, also nice to be back to something that is not digital!!!

Glad I bought it!!!

Size Name: Apex: Windup/Solar Radio Flashlight
This was my second purchase of this radio. I bought the first earlier this year to use while working in my greenhouse and it ran all summer on solar power without the need to wind it. This latest purchase was as an additional Christmas present for my sister and she was delighted with it. Super little radio, amazing price and on both occasions delivered very promptly by the seller - absolutely satisfied

Size Name: Hybrid: Windup/Solar Radio
This is a very impressive radio - from new, it has kept charge and not required any cranking. The 'solar charging' indicator is activated in dull, low daylight situations, and is obviously sufficient to keep the unit charged from day to day.

The reception is very good, and travelling around the UK I've found that stations are pulled in (both AM and FM) which are 'iffy' on other, supposedly 'better quality' radios.

With regard to the sound quality: you're never going to achieve HI-FI reproduction with a small speaker, and expectations should be set accordingly. It does reproduce speech very clearly, and is very handy for picking up sports commentary. Listening to music is acceptable, especially on FM, if you accept the limitations of the unit.

I did look at other options which offered a torch in addition to the radio, but struggled to think of a time when that would be useful. Having opted for the radio only, I haven't missed the lack of a flashlight.

I've been delighted with the purchase, and would recommend it

Size Name: Apex: Windup/Solar Radio Flashlight Verified Purchase
Having read a few negative reviews of this product I was a little nervous of buying it. I needn't have worried. It replaced a wind-up torch radio that needed two minutes of winding every fifteen minutes. Two minutes of winding with this brought me forty-five minutes of clear sound.

The solar panel also worked extremely well on the rare sunny days of the summer - once or twice I'd unwittingly left it switched on and the radio burst into life via sunlight hitting the panel. Which was slightly disconcerting when I was the only person in the house!

One of the best selling points of this radio is the ease of tuning - the digital display makes tuning a breeze. Radio 2 is notoriously hard to find on some radios - this model found it no problem. Alone of all the four wind up radios I've owned, this one makes it possible to listen to the radio whilst still winding. The winding mechanism is much quieter than its predecessor too. There's a light that goes on when the radio is charging, so that you can be confident it's working.

The only thing I can say against it is that the on-off switch is hidden on the base and is very small - when I first unpacked it I thought I'd bought a dud, as it took me a while to find this! There are eight buttons to press (to set the time, alarm, select band, light for digital display, and the torch) and two dials to twiddle, and the little switch on the base wasn't obvious.

The design is very stylish without sacrificing functionality - it's small enough to fit into a large coat pocket.
After a few months of use I haven't found the decline in performance that some others have reported. I'm really happy with this and consider it an excellent buy.

Size Name: Apex: Windup/Solar Radio Flashlight Verified Purchase
I wanted a little radio for when I'm pottering about the greenhouse / garden and this fits the bill perfectly. It's very sturdy with a rubberised finish that has so far withstood various knocks / drizzle / crumbs of compost. I've had the radio for about 6 months now and have used it regularly outside for about 3 months.

Plus points:
- stays charged from the sun most of the time if left in a sunny spot (the greenhouse in my case)
- red indicator light tells you if the radio is charging
- when the charge runs low (after some hours of use), a 1-minute wind-up keeps it going for another half-hour or so
- good reception for both FM and AM
- capacity for nice loud volume if needed
- torch is surprisingly powerful (but a narrow beam)

Minus points:
- sound quality is not great but you wouldn't buy this radio for the sound quality
- a bit fiddly to tune it using the rotary switch and I also find the tuning drifts slightly after a while
- volume seems to vary spontaneously at times
- top buttons are a bit small and fiddly
- instructions are not overly useful

I charged it up using the USB connection when I first got it but it hasn't been necessary since then. I've used it many times when I've been out in the garden the entire day and it's kept going all day if sunny, with a few windings to keep it going later in the day. I mostly listen to sport on it so the tinny tones don't trouble me. I've now started using it indoors doing some decorating because it's so handy to perch on a window-sill.

I've never used the alarm so can't comment on that but I've been absolutely delighted with this radio so far. I can see it being handy for days out / camping as well. I've actually grown so fond of it that I've even given it a name!
