We decided to let Hubby be the recipient of a gift from Buy Green. After he took some time looking over the sight, he choose the Solarlink ARC FR600.
Living in Arkansas we have our fair share of storms (a tornado hit our town in February 2008) and go without power it seems like several times each year from storms and ice. Although we have a NOAA weather radio, this is so much more!
It is self-powered and features a digital AM/FM/SW/NOAA, S.A.M.E. weather radio with flashlight, siren, solar power and cell phone charger-talk about mulch-purpose.
It can be powered from four different sources:
1) Dynamo/hand crank which charges the Ni-MH battery
2) From 3 AA batteries (not included)
3) From the AC via USB adapter (not included)
4) Solar power which charges Ni-MH battery
I love that it has a hand-crank option as well as a solar option. When you are with-out power for extended times periods it is nice to not have to rely on batteries (because those eventually run out too!)
