good little radio
on 15 September 2010
Bought this to use primarily as a portable speaker for my ipod...and its not bad for that. The sound is very good quality for such a little radio and the solar panel works really well when placed in the sun. Its also shower proof - handy for in the garden. It seems to struggle to get reception for some stations in certain locations in the house.
If its not sunny (and this is the uk..) then you need to charge it up via a USB cable plugged into your computer. This gives you a few hours sound which is not bad. Unfortunately the handle is of little or no use - several minutes winding just gives a few seconds of sound. If you wind it too vigorously the handle will snap off.
It was only £14.95 when i bought it - and i use it a lot - so overall am fairly pleased with it.
