PowerPlus Panther Wind up & Solar Radio Review:

You can’t beat the thrill of a real wind up radio! This was the first kind of device anyone would have owned in childhood – a tried and trusted method of keeping in touch with the world. Now you can be transported back to your childhood with this retro design from PowerPlus©, which has a vintage feel with brands reminiscent of the 80’s. The design is sturdy and convenient – it’s easy to put on charge or wind up, and charges quickly. However, the light rustic feel may not be to everyone’s taste and there is no LCD screen, which is not a deal-breaker for most people. Overall, it’s a great retro radio which does everything it says.
