There is no chance that you won’t notice that this radio is available only in green color with some black parts. The green color really gives us some kind of military vibe, and maybe that is why we feel so safe with it. Oh, and, the size is also perfect. Namely, this radio is around six inches long
When mentioning the size of this radio, we cannot forget to mention its design as well. It is designed that way so that it can be carried around easily without getting in the user’s way. Its right half is being occupied by one giant powerful speaker, while, the left half contains an LCD display with orange backlighting. The backlight for sure helps with the navigation throughout the radio in the dark, since it can easily be spotted.
Since this radio is able to work on both AM and FM frequencies, that means that you will always be able to listen to your favorite radio stations, no matter where you are- its reception is amazing, but, more on that later. To be more precise, the SG-112 is able to catch 87.5-108 MHZ and 5221710 kHz frequencies. On top of that, 19 preset stations are already waiting for you!

The reception of the SG-112 is truly amazing, and you won’t be experiencing any kind of signal dropouts while using it.
The battery is able to last for hours. And the good thing is that it is powered by a high-power 850mAh lithium-ion battery which can be recharged by three methods. The first method is by using the hand crank at the top of the radio, the second one is by USB, and the third one is just simply by placing it in the sunlight. Since it has solar panels, you will never run out of battery as long as the sun is high up in the sky.

Oh, and its price is more than reasonable and affordable. We have had some free time to check the market and we have come to the conclusion that there are many other models, from different brands which offer basically the same features for a similar device, but whose prices are very high.
Is there any kind of an alternative for it?
Considering that, after our search of the market we only found devices with similar features and quality but whose prices are so high up, we won’t be displaying any kind of alternative model for the SG-112. Instead of that, we will let you do your own research before purchasing anything. If you think that some other, more expensive model is better than the Sangean SG-112, go for it, and purchase it. But, in our own personal opinion, we think that the SG-112 model is one of the few which has the quality and the price range at the same level.
