The Sangean MMR-88 is one of the most reliable crank radios if you want to receive weather alerts when you camp or the power's out. The hand crank is efficient, and the battery has one of the quickest charge times of the radio models we tested.
The Midland ER310 is a good crank radio for everyday use at the beach, park or campsite, and its survival features make it an excellent addition to your emergency preparedness kit.
The Eton FRX series of crank radios is endorsed by the American Red Cross, which means it's loaded with features to help you in an emergency. In addition to using the dynamo hand crank, you can power it with an AC adapter, USB port, batteries or the sun.
The WeatherX WR-383R is an affordable crank radio that receives all the NOAA weather band stations and AM/FM stations, making it a great addition to an emergency preparedness kit. However, its below-average reception quality and long charge time keep it from being one of the very best crank radios.
The Kaito Voyager Pro is a crank radio that can receive AM and FM, NOAA and shortwave radio frequencies. It also has lights so you can see in the dark during a power outage or while you camp, a digital thermometer, and a humidity meter. All these features make the Voyager a good emergency radio.
