Introducing the newest and most advanced model of HQ ISSUETM Digital Multi-Band Weather Radio. Whether using it for yardwork without the hassles of finding an outlet nearby, or for keeping informed about oncoming weather while out camping, it's the perfect tool to keep you informed. Plus, it powers up in a variety of ways for added peace of mind. Its included rechargeable Ni-MH battery can be charged by your computer (AC power cord not included), or hand-crank the dynamo internal generator to provide some listening "juice." Or use the patented flip-up 180° adjustable solar panel to power it up even without batteries. And if you really want to play it safe, add (3) AA batteries (not included) as a backup to your backup. With its revolutionary design and versatile functions, the HQ ISSUETM Digital Weather Radio makes it perfect for bedside use, or for emergency preparedness while traveling in remote locations.
