4.0 out of 5 stars Neat package and reasonable sound quality, 6 April 2011
This review is from: Aquabourne Wind up & Solar Radio AM/FM/WB, splash proof. V2 high output solar panel (Electronics)
I wanted something either windup or rechargeable for the bathroom that didn't cost too much and this seemed to fit the bill. I'm quite pleased with it overall. My only gripe is the amount of charge it holds. On the box it states 1 minute winding will give 20 mins radio time but I only get about 10 minutes. 35-40 hours of solar charge is supposed to give about 7 hours of radio time. Given it's been sat on the windowledge since I unpacked it (Sunday) I would have expected to get longer play time from it by now. Having said that, it's a really neat radio and reasonably priced and reasonably 'green' so I can live with having to wind it up more often than I'd hoped.

in my opinion this is great ,and i love it,but to help anyone buying in vain,,it will only work instantly in direct sunlight and when you have that its perect,hence why when im in france,spain etc its brillaint,but when it clouds or a cloud hits the sun,,when the cloud passes it will come back on,the good thing is its not heat ,simply sunlight it needs. hence why on a freezing cold day outside my garage in sunny edinburgh it works perfect.but as i say direct sunlight to work instant,IT WILL NOT WORK IN CLOUD YOU WILL ONLY GET A BUZZING SOUND AND IM NOT SURE ABOUT IT STORING ENERGY THEN WORKING.great for beach.travelling.camping etc.,, as for sound .also imagine sitting in sun wherever you are.lets say on beach ,have it next to you enjoying the music to get over boredom of sitting in sun,lol its a good enough sound for you to enjoy but great thing is it wont bother someone sitting say 7 or 8ft away they will hear it but hey will be happy.cool
