5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Clever Bit of Kit... 28 Sep 2010
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy 5 Jan 2011
By CJT1943
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|Verified Purchase
Bought this radio to take with me to work, and its ideal, it is slightly smaller than I thought it would be (h70mm x w130mm x d35) but the volume is surprisingly good for the size and definately enough for what I need. It has a usb cable to charge which is very handy, and it works exactly as described. It is coated in what looks like rubberized plastic and feels well made and robust.

Since my initial review I have noticed one flaw in the radio, I use an usb mains socket to charge and unfortunately you cannot listen to it whilst plugged in due to static interferance, this is one snag that could have been avoided and made the radio perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little work-a-day radio 12 Jun 2012
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing little device 19 Feb 2010
Size Name:Apex: Windup/Solar Radio Flashlight
I took four of these radios to Zambia as gifts and they proved exceptional. Great reception, decent battery life, fairly easy to recharge with the wind-up and worked mostly just with solar charging, useful torch and unbelievable sound given its size and price. Great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 21 April 2010
Size Name:Ecohand: Windup Radio Flashlight
Firstly, amazon posted this to me so quick, even with super saver delivery i had this in a few days from when i ordered.

The radio itself is so small and light, yet amazingly well built and very sturdy. The buttons are very firm and sturdy and feel very good quality.

It lasts for ages on a short wind-up and the sound in terms of its quality and loudness is really quite impressive for the size of it.

The torch is a nice little bonus, which i thought would be naff, but its so bright it will definitely come in handy.

It also has a headphone jack, telescopic antenna and a little power cable which i think can be used to charge a mobile phone or something of similar low power - provided it fits your type of phone/device, but i'm sure you can get a cable or adaptor for your phone/device if you really want to use this feature.

No paper instructions in the box, but its kinda obvious what you do and the back of the box gives you some details of how long it will last for its different uses per wind-up time.
