FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Midland ER300 Emergency Solar Hand Crank AM FM Digital NOAA Weather Radio with Cree LED Flashlight and USB Charger Output

Versatile, comes to mind with this little unit. It has AM/FM/Weather bands. It was a bit difficult trying to find a weather band but I finally was able to tune one in. The versatility is impressive, it comes with a hefty LI battery as well as a space for double AA batteries. I charged the Lithium battery with the included USB cable. I ran the flashlight on high output for 5 hours and still had one bar left on the battery. I used the hand crank and was able to recharge the battery. I also set the unit on the window sill and saw that the solar panel also works as advertised. I hope I never need the morse code signal. I may use the dog alert to annoy the neighbors dog when it is barking. LOL. This also incorporates a siren and flashing alert for bad weather that I have not yet and hope never to experience. It is a great item to have considering all the power outages the past winter.  Topping off the impressive features is another really nice feature is that you can charge your cell phone from this unit. That feature makes it over the top for emergencies!
