Hello to "StarHalo", a fellow flashlight enthusiast-(Flashoholic). I live in southern florida which has it's fair share of inclimate weather & blackouts. I stock up on various radios, flashlights & batteries. Also an analog am/fm radio is preferable. The batteries in them will last longer than a digital radio. I remove my alkaline batteries from my emergency radios & flashlights until needed. Alkaline batteries will eventually leak & damage whatever is using them. Lithium batteries are expensive but will not leak & they have a longer shelf life.


Crystal sets need minimal components and some of them need no batteries at all. I built one when I was a kid and it worked first time. I don't think they would make for very practical radios though.
