Less than 1-week after receiving this order we had a severe thunderstorm with straight line winds over 70-mph. The Lightning Detector gave the 1st Warning indicating a lightning strike 21-miles away. My Wife was doing yard work so I went outside to warn her. Just as we got inside the winds hit and the Weather Alert Radio sounded the Warning, then the downpour began. When the storm finished in our area 3-hours later the Lightning Detector indicated over 130 lightning strikes. We didn't have any damage but there was a lot of tree damage in our area.
Just ordered for outdoor use on a regular basis. I wish the Weather Radio had a power button. I already have a weather radio that stays on all the time so I don't need the power base... just wanted something battery operated. This is battery operated but when not is use it has to be on the base or the batteries die. Just wish it had a power button.
Lightning Detector is pretty accurate.
Both were good buys.
I already had a weather radio upstairs but wanted a portable downstairs to take to the basement if needed. I'm a runner so the lightning detector is a good bonus. So far both work well.
Outdoor Preparedness Kit with Weather Radio and Lightning Detector. (I received the product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.) I was super impressed with how well this picked up how many lightning strikes that were near my home. In one day, the AcuRite Lightning Detector picked up about 18 strikes. The small device works great and takes 2 AAA batteries that are included in the packaging, this has a Pocket-sized with no-slip clip for portability.
Weather Radio Portable Emergency Weather Alert NOAA Radio. This handy radio is digitally tuned to NOAA Weather Radio (NWR), providing continuous weather information including warnings, watches, forecasts and all hazards 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Sounds a loud alert siren when emergency conditions occur. This has message encoding ensures you will only receive advisories, watches and warnings that are intended for your specific location. Where we live this is always nice to have when the bad weather turns up. The Siren sound is loud! This also has a docking station to listen to the weather alerts or you can install 3 AA batteries that are not included in the packaging and have this ready in case the power goes out you're prepared in the event of bad weather. I really love this so handy to clip on you and carry with you.
