AM/FM Weather Wind-Up CC Solar Observer
The Observer is a simple, affordable and compact radio with enhanced reception and audio performance. For emergency use it can be powered in four different ways and can charge many different USB type devices such as cell phones in a pinch. Many of our customers use it as their main radio.
The emergency radio was honestly born in 1992 when we experienced three large earthquakes in Northern California in 17 hours. Communication and services including electricity were hopelessly overloaded. In the Crane home shards of broken glass were everywhere and so were bare feet. All of our flashlights had been over used by our blessed children. We vowed to make a good emergency radio so this would never happen again.
This customer could not have said it better: "I have had only one, thank you Lord, occasion to use this in an emergency situation and it worked flawlessly. (I was the) Only one in the area with radio for two days of power loss... Thank you CCrane!!" vpipes - Dufur, Or.

Sound is great, reception is great. Works 5 minutes and dies. Did exactly what it instructed to train the battery. Holds a charge for about 5 mins. Even tried 5 minutes cranking 2 revs per second. Charge lasted 5 minutes and faded out.
Fantastic radio when its energized.
Holds a charge for 5 minutes.

The best little radio I have ever had! C Crane people are nice to deal with... I have had this radio for a few years now, and it still performs great! Still have an old CC radio, and while the display is shot, it still pulls in the stations.
