How much does it weigh, Gary?

From their website, 250g (almost 9 oz).

Gary's opinion notwithstanding, reviews on the web are pretty poor (e.g., 1.4/5 stars on their own Facebook page), mostly about shipments never received and the company being flagged as a suspicious vendor. Caveat emptor.

Scroll down to the bottom of the Amazon ad to see other models of the same radio for different prices and colors. And prices range from $19.99-$26.99.
