The high efficiency Li-Ion 2200mAh battery pack supplied in the package guarantees up to 25 hours of use in normal conditions. The Midland ER310 is the best emergency weather radio because it offers better reception, a brighter flashlight, and more-effective charging options than the other models we tested, including the ability to charge from dead through solar power or hand-cranking. Like our other picks, it’s reliably resistant against tumbles and water, and it offers USB charging and a headphone jack, as well. The flashlight also has a dimmer beam option and an SOS blinking pattern, both of which can come in handy for casual camping or wilderness survival. You’re likely to find more use for an emergency weather radio that doubles as a personal or group entertainment device—which makes you likely to keep it around, and keep it charged, for the rare situations where you actually need the emergency functions.

If there’s a weather alert in your area, the ER310’s built-in NOAA audible alarm and flashing display will make sure you notice. I was also impressed with the brightness of the integrated flashlight, which provided three settings to choose from: standard, bright and flashing. The ER310 emerged unscathed from both our drop tests and our water-resilience tests, with a few barely noticeable scratches to show for it.Features like this should be standard with emergency tech, and if you ever get stuck somewhere, you’ll be glad you have it. Whether dealing with a blizzard, tornado, or any unforeseen event, you may need to be able to keep it charged for days on end. If you just need the basics of a weather radio with a built-in light, the RunningSnail MD-090P will get you through a camping trip or emergency without a problem. Those who live in areas frequented by dangerous weather events like flash floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes should absolutely have an emergency radio. If you’re carrying the Eton Sidekick by this handle, your knuckles may accidentally punch some of these buttons, which is a little annoying but hardly a dealbreaker.

Also, the loop on the end makes it easy to fix onto a backpack and lets the solar panel soak up the sun during a hike. Because severe weather situations can develop extremely quickly, it’s imperative you give yourself as much time as possible to prepare. Maybe you’re more concerned about tornados than flash-flooding, for example—with SAME alerts, you can program your Eton Sidekick to alert you only when there’s a tornado warning that might affect you.It was also one of the few radios we tested that lived up to their crank-generating claims: We found that just one minute of cranking produced 10 minutes of radio time or a few minutes of flashlight use. Re-insert the battery pack and AA batteries (if desired), then using the hand crank, crank the radio at a good pace for 90 seconds and try the radio function.

Emergency radios can also offer additional features that can be valuable in an emergency, like hand cranks and solar panel chargers when batteries run low, and USB ports to charge your phone. Additional features such as a flashlight or the ability to charge your phone: These are helpful, especially if you can charge your phone by crank.So if you have hearing loss, or if you’re out of the house when the alarm goes off, you can still find out if some ugly conditions are headed your way. In addition to receiving AM/FM, weather-band radio, and NOAA weather alerts, the Sidekick also picks up the hyper-local and customizable Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) alerts—it’s the only portable emergency weather radio we’ve found that does so. It’s up to you to decide your budget and to figure out how many accessories you want for your radio. It can’t beep or flash to let you know when bad weather is coming, but it still picks up NOAA weather-band radio signals with great reception once you turn it on and tune it in.

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging . The ER310 also comes with a headphone jack—a surprisingly inconsistent feature among the weather radios we liked, but one that can certainly come in handy. It lacks the dog-whistle feature, too, and we found its internal wiring to be a bit messier in comparison with the clean connections on its larger cousin. Digital radio transmitters take sound and process it into digital information, which is then transmitted much easier over long distances and at a much higher fidelity than traditional analog. For our 2021 update, we tested seven emergency weather radios: the Midland ER210 and Midland ER310, which were already picks, as well as the RunningSnail MD-090P, the Eton Sidekick and Eton FRX2, and the Kayinuo DF-580.

A lighted digital LCD display and presets let you dial in your preferred stations quickly and accurately, and the auto-scan feature finds the clearest stations for you. The WR400 has a clearly marked menu button with a four-direction cursor and an LCD screen to walk you through all the necessary steps—as a result, it’s accessible and easy to figure out, even if you tend to skip instructions. The radio sports a range of band reception that includes AM, FM, shortwave, and NOAA weather stations, with all seven NOAA channels pre-programmed for easy switching.
