Love that this can be charged by USB, solar, hand crank and, unlike many similar items, replacable batters (3 x AAA). Radio works well, light is handy and hand crank seems good quality. Hoping this saves me in an

This is a fantastic item to add to your go bag in case of bushfire. The ability for this great little radio to pick up signal where it may be tuff, as well as being able to charge your mobile phone are a must during bushfire season in

This little radio is simply not worth the money. The AM station reception is dreadful- lots of static. Noted a friend had the same one and when I asked she also said it was terrible. This product is definitely not one Sony should put its name to. Sorry I bought it and want to return

So I read all the reviews and was a little hesitant to purchase this item. However, at the low price, I thought I would give it a go.
This item is excellent. Performs exactly as described on the box. It is easy enough to use, my 4-year old can operate it. Between the crank handle and the solar, it will never run out of juice.

I was looking for a great all rounder device for my wife's car. The reviews were great and am one happy buyer! At first I thought the unit would be flimsy, but it's quite the opposite. The unit is very sturdy and feels like it's built to last. No rattling parts but a very solid build and the plastic and rubber feel good. Charged it up,

Honestly I wasn't sure what to expect quality wise, but for the price decided to roll the dice.

It feels good and sturdy in the hand, charges all the available ways, the torch is good and bright. The radio and speaker particularly surprised me! It's hardly spectacular, you need to do the old signal waltz and find a good place

Purchase arrived earlier today, packed well enough that the obviously rough handling it received in transit did not damage the radio itself. A good little unit, works well with my Sony and Allen and Heath headphones (I'm not a fan of earbuds and cannot rate the included ones fairly for this reason). Most happy with the fact this radio is

This tiny cheap device works without a hitch. I do use my own earbuds (as in the picture) rather than the cheap ones supplied. Reception and sound on FM are both fine. Its so light and small it fits easily into a pocket to carry on my daily walk. The feature I like best is the "Lock" setting which locks the device to prevent inadvertent

Well I live out in the country of South Australia and was a bit worried about the reception of the Retekess Mini Radio but the radio is working perfectly picking up most stations.There are plenty of little added extras which are proving very useful and the price of the radio is excellent.I am very happy with the product and a big thankyou

I used to go around to my grandfather's house early on a Saturday to drink coffee and listen to BBC and Voice of America before the sun came up - to this day there is something soothing about the wavering signals and noise of distant stations playing through a SW radio so when I needed a new alarm clock I gave this a try instead of the

The ETM sweeping and VM/VF function is superb. The signal display is accurate.. i could pickup shortwave stations by the masses (like 60 of them) internationally from Australia (which has 0 SW stations) at night.

The audio quality is not as good as some, and you should probably upgrade the antenna.. but overall

This is a good small radio, but, for me, it is useless as a radio alarm. The manufacturers have a fixed minimum volume for the radio when used as an alarm. In my view it is too loud to be used in many situations - if you live in a house with others, even if they sleep in other bedrooms, for example, or even in hotels.
If you are

The Sangean DT120BK is a small pocket radio with great features especially the preset stations and the automatic 90 minute shut off to save batteries. No problem tuning and more than adequate volume. I was not impressed with the headphones supplied by Sangean, however I just switched to a set of Sony from my old radio, problem

I use it everywhere, in the garden, travelling, in bed, everywhere. Storing my favourite stations is a breeze. No need to worry about running down the battery by forgetting to turn it off as there is a pre-selection of times which allows you to automatically switch off the radio. Would be lost without

Super little product that delivers good quality sound. A shame that the lowest volume is still too loud for wearing with earpieces but that was easily solved by buying a small adapter which allowed me to lower the volume even more. Great display and very easy to use. Good price. Overall? Very happy with the purchase and the delivery

I wanted this as a small AM radio to use through headphones while riding my bike. Unfortunately it worked only through the left channel, an artifact I found really annoying.

This small radio gives amazing sound for such a small unit. It stores up to ten stations and has three buttons for instant access to your three favourite stations. The FM reception is much better than the bigger cheaper Sony that it replaced, as the reception on the Sunshine Coast is mediocre and DAB is unavailable. A friend brought one

This has so far been a great device for a relative who listens to the radio for hours daily. In-built battery means you don't lose your preset stations everytime you recharge, as happens when you take regular replaceable batteries out of some other DAB radios. Possibly fiddly to operate (small navigation dial/select button) but easy to

Second one I've bought for my mum to use around the house and outside.
First unit (not from amazon) suffered a broken power switch (that does seem to be a known issue) but had been used daily for hours at a time around the house and garden and dropped numerous times for a year so hopefully this one will last a bit longer or at least

Yes the headphone plug is stereo but rather soft. I have connected it to an active speakers and cranked the volume to almost maxed for it to be listenable.
