Having an emergency radio is useful both at home and on the road. This one from Midland has a hand crank and a solar panel to charge its 2600mAh lithium battery in case no power is available. It can also charge devices via USB. It has a 130 lumen Cree LED flashlight and an ultrasonic dog whistle. The NOAA weather band receiver receives weather forecasts, alerts and emergency messages. In the event an alert is received, a siren will sound and the flashlight will flash so you don’t miss it. Of course, you can jam out to tunes listening regular radio stations, too.
