While off the grid, I'm testing this hand crank weather radio. It also has a solar panel, which seems to be keeping everything up and running.
It was a gift for Mother's day, perfect for the current adventure, living off the grid for 10 days at a time. Amazingly, internet and electricity are hard to come by even when I return to civilization to resupply. Right now I'm writing this at a McDonalds.
The volume is low on the radio, and seems to wear the battery down much quicker than the light. For this reason, I seldom use that function. It does have an antenna, which helps with reception back in the woods.
