Review: We Found The Perfect Little RC Pit Box Radio for Thirty Bucks..Great for Emergencies, Fishing, Hobbies, etc. ETON AM/.FM Rechargeble Emergency Radio

Coolest Little Radio on the Planet

Hey Everyone…One of our crew members brought one of these little Etón American Red Cross ARCFR160R Microlink AM/FM Radios with him racing and left it on his table. We all checked it out and knew we should review this and share it with our readers. We all went on Amazon the next day to buy one and have been extremely happy with our purchases. Get does not use replaceable batteries. It uses a rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride battery that has 2 ways to charge it. The first way is a dynamo style hand crank. We cranked it for a minute and 30 seconds and  were able to listen to the Am/Fm Radio for 45 minutes. But that’s not the best part. It also features a solar panel. So while the radio is on the pit table, it is also charging. We went the whole day with solar power and a little bit of cranking. All without having to worry about whether or not the radio had fresh AA batteries. It also has Weather Band, and flashlight and a USB charger for emergency charging for your cell phone.


We have had the radios for about a month now and have had no issues.  They are well built, sturdy, and have decent sound for a little radio. We are all buying them as a second radio for our house too..just in case of a power outage. How many times has your radio gone dead and you didn’t have batteries? This radio solves that problem…
