Is there such a thing as being too prepared? Sheldon Cooper of "The Big Bang Theory" would scoff at such a question. Most likely, he also has this radio or one quite similar to it in his multiple disaster kits.
For the rest of our readers, a suggestion for the (Nearly) Prepared on your list.
The Kaito Voyager AM/FM/SW NOAA Radio pulls in AM & FM radio signals, as well as all 7 weather bands and shortwave signals to boot. With features such as an LED reading lamp and 6 cellphone charger tips, what really sets this radio apart are the 6 ways it can be powered. The most noticeable ones are the solar panel and the dynamo or hand crank. However, it can also be powered by disposable AA batteries, the included rechargeable batteries, the AC adapter or via a computer using the USB port and included cord.
An added bonus? It is available in 5 colors plus a jungle camouflage scheme.
The only thing nicer than this emergency radio is the price.
