Great item but poor reliability,
This review is from: Eton Scorpion (SP100) Multi-Purpose Solar Powered Radio, Compact and Power Packed for Extreme Outdoor Conditions (Sports)
Firstly the good bits.
The radio and torch are great. The solar panel is handy but needs a few days charge in the sun to work for long enough.
I love this device , very useful in the bathroom and when camping.
The bad points
This will be the third device whereby the plasic handle to wind it up has snapped. I am not heavy handed but after about a week of use twice a day it snaps. which is a shame as the solar panel takes to long and charging via the power socket defeats the purpose of the device.
I also have not been able to charge my phone with the USB charger, (may be my phone).
Would i buy one again, yes and have, do i wish the handle issue was fixed yes!!
If youre going to charge it via the power socket all the time then buy one, if not dont find something else.
The concept is brilliat but the practice and quality of this one does not live up to it.
