The CCRadio Solar is a small digital portable radio that is successful as an emergency radio but the form and format invites you to use it daily. Placed in a sunny window it's perfect for the morning news. Audio is a surprise, it's accurate, pleasing and it has a miser setting to conserve battery power in a true emergency. Long range reception is one of the best of emergency type radios. Reception is good for the size. The almost brick size depth and unique UV resistant rubber perimeter is concave on the bottom which makes it inherently stable. The flashlight is above average in brightness and color because of the selected high quality LED. The hand crank inlaid on the back is the only visible clue that it's an emergency radio. When the battery is fully charged the radio will run about 50 hours or charge your phone from the approximately 50% level to 100% level.

I brought the first CCRadio Solar home and my wife absconded with it until our designer/illustrator had to beg to get it back for documentation. To get it back from him was also overly arduous. I have never seen a radio so coveted. It is about hand size and it stays charged in a sunny window with an oversize solar panel which means it may not need a power assist for years. Bob Crane

I have the radio in the sun but the battery icon does not blink.

The icon blinks when charging by using the micro USB input and the crank. It does not blink when charging in the sun. (sorry)

Why is it easy to crank the radio when the battery if fully charged?

When the battery starts to get low it will accept more current and it will become harder to crank.
