Review this product
Top reviews from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Bought a slightly bigger rechargeable battery off eBay to make the radio last longer.
Like the 90 mins sleep mode. Torch works ok and in low mode will easily go through the night, for a couple of nights before charging required.
But maybe it's not suitable for emergency in Australia.
I cannot locate any specific emergency channels here in Victoria.
Signal/Reception is no better than any other radio.
Top reviews from other countries
There are seals around all the charging ports so it is some what water proof although I would probably never want to dunk it in water, the seals do there job to keep out rain.
The hand crank on it is easy to use, and does charge it quite well. The flash light is not to impressive on it, but in a pinch it will do. Over all very happy with this purchase.
So why just one star? you ask. Because, I answer, one thinks less of a replaceable battery that is not replaceable.
First, Sangean has chosen a fairly rare size to begin with, the 18350. Keeping in mind that 18350s do not come in standard sizes as do, say, AA’s and AAA’s, and that the battery compartment is very tight, limiting the choice even further (BTW “even further” means “zero” in my search to date). One Amazon reviewer—in a most insightful perspective on the MMR-88—suggests removing the original and inferior 18350 battery and replacing it with an AW brand 18350. Good advice if the AW factory had not been flooded and, as of this writing, no longer able to produce batteries. The other few options include a handful of Chinese 18350s with the word “Fire” in the name: ReadyFire, SureFire, EverFire. Especially avoid OnFire. These are not good choices, especially when the batteries are unprotected. Does the radio itself offer protection? you ask. I ask that, too.
Write to Sangean, you say. Tell them the problem. Ask them what to do. I did: I wrote. I told. I asked. Weeks later and I’m still waiting for a reply. I’m thinking it might be something I said. I do know that hurricane season is looming, and I have nasty visions of trying to crank up/solar power a dead battery as my house blows away.
Listen, I’ll be more than happy to bump this review to 5 stars if Sangean will write me and tell me specifically where I can get an 18350 battery that’s safe and fits. If Sangean goes the extra step and tells me whether or not the MMR-88 offers internal battery protection, I’ll even throw in a puppy.
A favor: if any readers know of a battery that fits, please let me know. It would be much appreciated.
Has a very strong atenna, I was able to get AM stations from as far as New York City (I'm currently located in Halifax)
(Does work in Canada for any Canadian buyers that are interested)
This is my 3rd purchase for friends who live on a semi-remote island. It can pick up stations that other radios can’t and is nice and portable. Really nice quality
