Flashlight with NOAA Weather Radio

We lose power here a lot!  One time a beaver ate a line into 2 pieces and took out power to the whole town for 2 days.  So this is perfect for our house.  Most of the time our power goes out there is not a storm, it just goes out.  Then we have no way of finding out if bad weather is heading our way.   The storms can come up fast and we need to be ready.  Most people do not have a basement here so we have to make do.  This radio/flashlight is going to make us feel a little bit safer.

This is what is in the package.  You can purchase a DC power cord for this, which I recommend, but it does not come with it.  I love that I can press the “listen” button and hear my local weather report at anytime.  So no more sitting waiting to know if they say the weather report or go to the bathroom after sitting there for an hour and miss the report.  Believe me, been there, done that!

You can adjust the volume on this.

This is a very sturdy unit.  I think it will last a long time.  Plus they have a limited 1 year warranty.  For the price of this Flashlight with NOAA Weather Radio, you cannot go wrong!

I love how easy the button is to find to turn the flashlight on.  I have too many times, ended up “flicking my bic” to find the switch on other lights.  OK not everyone will get that joke, just showing my age! haha

Yes, that is a crank on the side.  You can use this in emergencies to recharge the battery pack that is in the unit.  Now you will always know the weather coming your way, with or without batteries.

This side is for the batteries.  No D batteries here, you need 3 AA batteries which are normally easier to have on hand.

The switch at the top changes from batteries to crank power.  You can use headphones with this.  Also the DC power goes here.

The flashlight is really bright and I am sure we will use that a lot.

Weather Alert Radio

This will show messages scrolling across.  When you get one of these, there is no set up, put the batteries in and turn it on.  It is ready for your location.  The reception range is 50 miles.  Lights will indicate an advisory, watch, or warning.  Keep updated on thunderstorms, tornados, hurricanes, and amber alerts.

This would be a great gift for almost anyone.  Know a camper, climber, elderly person, single person, or family person can use this.  Easy to get up and going!  Find this awesome Flashlight with NOAA Weather Radio on their website or on Amazon below.

  2. My husband would love this flashlight.He has many flashlights but none of them would stand up to this one with all it’s multifunctions.This would be perfect for him on our camping trips or just to have at home when the power goes out.Thanks for the great review.

  3. I want something like this. There are too many disasters happening and I don’t have a link to NOAA radio to hear announcements. Nice gadget as it’s in a needed flashlight too.

  4. Living in Florida you always need flashlights
    This one with radio is fantastic because if we are without power we could still keep up with the weather
    Right now we are dealing with rain from tropical storm Hermine

  5. I have for a long time now kept a flashlight by my bed and in the glove compartment of my car. However having the flashlight handy is so helpful but it doesn’t tell me the weather therefore this flashlight would be the perfect solution.

  6. I would love to have one of these when I am out on the road or camping, I love what this can do for me and
    my family.
