Compact Emergency Crank Wx Radio is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from as me and my mother went camping we used it heavily. all though we have the ER 200 they are functionally the same. battery life was good enough to last all night with the radio on. As it is a small and portable radio the sound quality is to be expected with distorted bass and little treble. but is good enough for casually listening to music or using NOAA radio. my biggest problem with this radio though is that the antenna it comes with can easily break with a lot of use. other than this I have found this thing a great little radio. and a large improvement on the other weather radios I have owned

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like the compact size. But I am utterly ticked at the lack of proper instructions for the initial charging of the unit. Neither the quick start guide or owners manual tell you to open the battery compartment to plug the battery in. I assumed it was plug in so after charging for recommended time and having no charge came to your site and it said the battery needs to be plugged into the unit. Make your written directions clear, not everyone has internet access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding coverage during hurricane Harvey in the Pearland, Brazoria County TX area. One would have to be completely dead not to hear the alarm when dangerous weather is approaching. Would recommend this baby highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your ER210 E-Ready radio was a good investment for me and anyone in the south florida area. I am listening to it right now while I am online. The VA store in west palm beach has it now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Radio with A lot of Features Not only does it provide, weather and civil emergency alerts but I can also be used just a normal radio to listen to AM/FM channels. The best part about it, is the ability to keep it charged. There is hand-crank function, solar charging or USB charging. The antenna is a little flimsy but just needs to be opened and closed with some care to keep it from possibly breaking but besides that its a great value for what you are getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little radio, fun for our guests We operate storm chasing tours and reliable radios are very important to us. We have had Midland radios before that have worked great, but these step up the game to a new level for us. We let our tour guests use them to hear warnings and these haven't failed us yet. The extra charging features are a plus from our old crank only style radios. Battery lasts forever it seems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We'll never be without ours! We camp and hike often and, if we've learned anything, it's that the weather on your phone is grossly inadequate. This crank radio is part of our morning routine when we camp and we take it with us when we hike. Thinking about extended your hike another few hours? Just crank to find out if it's a good or bad idea. Other features like the device charging, solar AM/FM its ultra-lightness push this little radio over the top. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The instructions should tell you to plug the battery into the device. I needed to do that via the website. But it charging now, we’ll see how well it worKS for Irma.

I just bought this radio and so far so good but I can't figure out if it's weather alert or weather band? Will it sound alerts when powered off?

Asked by: Alan Scott
As long as the radio shows the time displayed you will receive alerts.

I have had my noaa radio about 2 years now and use it a lot. Now it keeps turning itself off and when it does, it goes to 8:00 a.m. for default time, 162.400 for default noaa channel and am and fm go to lowest channels. Does at random times. Ideas?

I was wondering if the weather alerts will come on when there is bad weather or if you just have to manually turn it on? My Mom has a NOAA weather radio and it will just come on to announce weather alerts, you don't have to listen to continually.

Asked by: angeleyes
The alerts will automatically come on as long as you have the Weather Alert Function enabled.

Are you able to disable all local alerts except for tornados? I don't want alerts for severe thunderstorms.

Asked by: AmyH
You cannot select which alerts you want to disable with the ER210. If you want to be able to select which alerts to disable we would recommend the WR120 or WR400.

Not that I would try this, but how long would you have to hand crank the ER210 to get the battery _fully_ charged? Somewhat similar models from other companies take a very long time, indeed (hours and hours and hours). Thanks

Asked by: RandomTN
Charge time using the hand crank is dependent on the speed at which one cranks. The solar panel and hand crank in this product are designed to be used for supplemental and emergency charge purposes. The quickest and most efficient way to charge is using the standard USB method.

I understand that this unit can be used to charge mobile devices using the USB cable. Can it also charge the 2-way radios? Would it also work to charge USB Power bank (16000 mAh capacity, input voltage of 5V)?
