On top of that, Instant Ink contracts are rolling, so you can cancel whenever’s convenient for you. Print quality is not much different, but the printing experience is a bit better because you don’t need to deal with the bowden setup and all the small annoyances you get with a bowden setup. With the BIQU BX, really flexible filaments can be printed while the CR-6 SE can do it but only with regular TPU. On this model, the layers have a tiny bit more inconsistency, but this is caused by the cheap filament I used (~15$/roll). Continuing the list of top-end hardware, I need to mention the use of 0.9-degree stepper motors. BIQU upgraded the regular 1.8-degree stepper motors to improve the print quality and I’m happy to report that they work well. The heatbed is a bit bigger than the common 230×230 offerings for most small-format printer manufacturers.
Built for the wilderness, the ACXT645 conserves energy by turning off after ten seconds without use and even has an LED flashlight to help you find your way in the dark. CBs are still in widespread use because of their low cost and, unlike with ham radios, no license is required. They also offer 40 channels, as well as a multitude of sideband channels to choose from. They have a range from one to 15 miles, but they are very line-of-sight sensitive, so conversations can cut in and out if one or more radios are mobile.
Monochrome print of ‘Autumn Storm’ at ‘standard’ print quality on luster paper. The colors are very impressive from ManualsDB the PRO-1000, but even better are the black levels.
The ER210 doesn’t look as substantial as its larger cousin, but it proved to be just as durable in our splash and drop tests. If you want a sleeker alternative to our top pick, the Midland ER210 is a great option. Extreme weather events are becoming more and more frequent, and relying on your phone for updates won’t work if it’s offline or out of battery power.

A simple model that got the job done for me was Bellari’s Rolls VP29, which also has a memorable red design. Higher-end preamps or “phono stages” from the likes of Bellari Audio, Cambridge Audio, and Pro-Ject can sell for as much as your budget will bear. If the prices seem like they’re beginning to add up, it’s worth noting that you probably won’t need to replace the stylus in whatever cartridge you buy very often. Sanchez says that in the vinyl pricing room at Amoeba, they play records, often ones in poor condition, 14 hours a day. But despite all that use, their needles only need to be replaced about every four months. “In a normal listening situation, most people are probably going to listen to records for a couple of hours a day at most, so they probably won’t have to change the needle for years,” he explains.
When using it, the speaker of the radio shuts, allowing you to listen to those death metal songs without people judging you. When fully charged, you can listen to the radio through the 2.25-inch speaker, or using a headphone jack. It all depends on the people surrounding you and how comfortable they’d be. Since the radio features a battery indicator, you’ll be able to keep track of how much power remains before running out.
