A shame about the 4xAA power; the simple controls and solid AM reception would make this a fine power outage radio if only it were powered by D-cells. The Sony ICF-F10 lives on..

Yes, I noticed that too. 4 AA cells on a radio that size means it will eat up batteries like crazy. Surprised it wasn't mentioned in the review.

In a radio like this, I'd use two or three sets of low-discharge NiMH rechargeable AA batteries, like Sanyo Eneloops.

Alkaline batteries significantly outlast NiMH cells in a low-drain application, specifically analog-tuned radios, so long as you're okay with the possibility of a leak.

I had this radio; it was the biggest piece of junk ever. It could not pick up almost anything on FM; the dial wheel was so hard to move. I returned it the next day.

I like the blue one.

Lack of FM power, makes it unappealing to me.
