NOAA Weather Radio

A critical feature to look for when considering an emergency crank radio is being classified as a weather alert radio -- opposed to a weather band radio. Weather band radios require being powered on and tuned into a local weather station to receive alerts. Weather alert radios notify you regardless of the station you’re listening to or if the radio is even on. The radio could be powered off and you would still receive the alert.

Our weather alert radios are enabled as All Hazards NOAA Weather Radios meaning you receive severe weather and civil emergencies alerts instantly. In a crisis, instant alerts can make all the difference.

Hand crank radios are simply more reliable than cell phones and the internet. Cell towers and networks are vulnerable and susceptible to service disruption from extreme weather, mechanical failure, and solar flares. When extreme weather strikes and you’re without power, hand crank radios are your best option for staying powered up and informed. Multiple, sustainable, reliable power source options are a fundamental feature when shopping for an emergency radio.

Our crank radios offer multiple power options: solar panel, hand crank, AA batteries, and a long-lasting rechargeable lithium-ion battery. You can quickly recharge the device when power is available and have the backup charging options when it’s not.
