Notes - Who says that an emergency radio needs to be stripped down to its bare bones and left with room for essential functions only? Kaito, makers of the Voyager Pro KA600, sure doesn't. It's packed full of features that feel downright luxurious compared to other radios in this category. Like many of the others, this radio runs on rechargeable batteries that can be charged through a USB port, hand crank, and a solar panel. It also can accept three AA batteries. The KA600 sports a three-LED flashlight and the ability to charge other gadgets via a USB port. Unlike other radios, however, the Voyager Pro's solar panel is positional for optimum performance and includes a low power five-LED reading light on its backside. Like other radios, it can receive AM, FM, and WB bands, as well as both Short Wave (SW) and Long Wave (LW) frequencies. Its back-lit digital display lights up and displays not only the time, but also date, temperature, and humidity. Frequencies on all bands can be stored in its memory for quick tuning. The Voyager Pro even includes a dual alarm clock, sleep, and snooze modes … talk about full-featured!
