Compact Emergency Crank Wx Radio is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21.
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 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 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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy I bought this three weeks before I lost power for the weekend. The small size makes it handy and the multiple charging options are handy. The downside of this product are the battery needs to be plugged in first the directions are not clear and it is not easy to do. It also does not come with a plug or car adapter for USB cable.

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)?

Can the radio be connected to the charging port all of the time

Asked by: Thomas W
Yes it can, but we would actually suggest that you place this radio in a sunny window and let the solar panel keep the slow trickle charge going.

The display light does not shut off model ER210. is this normal?

Asked by: jack
Hello Jack, the ER210 should always show the time and the battery but the display light should shut off after about a 10 second period of non-use. If you could send us an email at we will let you know how to go about sending this model in so we can check it out and get you a working unit! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

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
