Midland Radio Corporation's new ER10VP Company Emergency Alert AM/FM Weather Radio is preparedness in your pocket.
Ned Magdaleno is a hiker, camper, and travel photographer based in Southern California. He took the ER10VP with him on an adventure and shared how the radio made a difference while exploring.
It's important when you're heading out on an adventure to be prepared for anything that might come your way.
More often than not these hiking, off-road, skiing, camping, fishing, and other adventures take us off-grid where cellphones are little to no help.
Having a reliable emergency radio like the ER10VP is key to your safety.
"Being prepared while hiking can be the difference between getting back home safely or not returning at all," Ned Magdaleno said.
While you may have checked the forecast before you left, weather is always changing. Midland's ER10VP Emergency Radio is equipped with NOAA Weather Radio alerts.
"No matter what your experience level is when it comes to hiking, you can never trust yourself enough to be adequately prepared against the elements. You may have your route planned in advanced, constantly checking the weather forecasts, and do everything right.. but sometimes things go wrong. At just $20, you'll thank your past self for throwing this emergency radio in your pack should you ever find yourself in a sticky situation," Magdaleno added.
The ER10VP is also battery operated, coming with three AA batteries.
"I think it's safe to say you won't be changing out the batteries anytime soon if you're smart with usage," he said.
Perhaps the ER10VP's biggest selling point is its size.
With a compact size of 5" x 3" x 1.2", you can throw this emergency radio in your pocket or in your backpack. It won't take up much room at all.
"With its light weight yet rugged design and small frame, this emergency radio takes up no space in your pack and for those us that like to count our ounces in gear, you won't have to worry about adding unnecessary weight with this radio," Magdaleno said.
Even if you have a lot of other gear to pack, there is plenty of room for this life-saving device.
Other features include the integrated flashlight, something Magdaleno is fond of.
"One of my favorite features about this Midland emergency radio is the integrated LED High/Lo Beam Flashlight with a SOS strobe. If I'm ever in a situation where I find myself stranded and my headlamp dead, I know I can rely on the built-in flashlight to guide my way. Or worse case, I know I can stand behind the SOS strobe feature to signal an overhead chopper or faraway hiker if I find myself in distress."
