A solar radio gives you the ability to power an emergency radio anywhere. This device is perfect for those who go hunting, hiking, or camping in remote locations. The solar radio includes small solar panels that can charge the radio in the sun. Those radios with a larger power bank, measured in mAh (milliamp hours), can store more power from the solar panels. Larger power banks allow them to run for longer periods before needing another charge. Many solar radios have a hand crank option for generating power as well. This is a nice feature for those times when you have clouds that prevent solar charging, or when you need power at night.
