Comments about American Red Cross Safety Radio and Phone Charger:
After using it for a few months, I can no longer change radio stations. It was stuck on my favorite station until I had to change the batteries. Now it is not on a station and can't be changed. I had a very similar one for years without problems. I use it mostly to listen to the radio on weekends as I work around the house and yard.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
