Bought this radio just before hurricane Irma. it ran for 2 days before i got to charge it after the storm. it still had two charge bars left so it would have gone more. solar charged it after that. worked great but takes more time to charge. not a complaint. huge piece of mind when your house is shaking and you have no power to be able to get updates on the storm. we were able to get the weather update that told us that Irma had turned a little east and we were through the worst of the storm. we had no power for the next 9 days but we had all the local info we needed thanks to this radio. buy it and put it in your hurricane kit now.

I remember Midland radios from back in the hay-day of CB’s, the 1970s. Always good quality and a good signal. I am a licensed Ham Radio Operator today and I am still impressed by the quality of workmanship and quality of signal.
The ER-310 has many great features but one stands out for me; Other “emergency crank radios” can only be charged by solar or crank… both taking a long time. The ER-310 can also be charged with an included USB cable. This makes re-charging SO MUCH EASIER.
I have bought 4 radios now; for myself and other Ham Radio friends. They all enjoy and appreciate these fine radios. Especially during Hurricane Season here in FLorida.

Over the years I have either purchased or use Midland radios and found them to be a good product. The E310 E+ emergency radio continues with the tradition. Two things about this radio that i have to be comment on. I can’t tell when the dog whistle is on or off. I read the manual for the E310 prior to purchasing it and it leads one to believe the antenna had a swivel feature which it does not. Having the antenna with the swivel feature would be great. One could hang the radio on a limb and position the antenna for the strongest signal. Present antenna requires the owner to turn their body around to get the strongest signal. In the mountains where I live this added feature would be great to have. The radio appears to be able to pick up most of the AM, FM and NOAA signals one would need in an emergency situation. I can recommend this radio “as is.”

We’re very pleased with this radio. It performs exactly as advertised. I hope we never need to use it in a serious emergency, which here in Florida would be a major hurricane, and some occasional tornadoes, but I have confidence in it.

A major issue here is power loss for extended periods, which has happened before. I like that it has multiple power options, in addition to plug-in AC. The solar, battery (both Li-ion and double-AA), plus hand crank sources should keep us connected.

I also like 2 features I think are quite clever, but potentially important. One is the continuous SOS beacon. We’ve had hurricanes where flooding has marooned people onto their roofs, even into trees. This could attract rescue aircraft.

Second is the dog whistle. We might not use that locally, but if we tried to evacuate with our car, and subsequently became blocked and stranded, perhaps had to abandon the car, search & rescue teams might find us. That’s also where its self-contained portability is a plus.

My only suggestion might be making the radio water resistant. Since heavy rain & flooding are typical with most of the weather threats we’ve faced here.
