Cam checks out the all in one speaker, radio, battery pack and flashlight from Eton. At $60 it’s a modest price for a product which offers so much piece of mind when you’re out in the wild.
About the product:
Safe and sound
This all-purpose, rechargeable weather alert radio with solar panel and hand turbine power generator will keep you in the know, on alert, and well connected. No emergency kit is complete without it.
When the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms.
Stay in tune and up to date with this AM/FM/NOAA weather band digital radio with display and alarm clock. If you want more than just the radio, there’s an AUX-input to play your own tunes. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.
More power to you
The FRX3 powers up in multiple ways—via solar panel, hand crank, built-in rechargeable battery, or traditional batteries.
Ready, set, go
Crank the hand turbine for one minute and you’ll produce enough power for 15-20 minutes of music, news and weather. Or simply charge it in the sun using the built- in solar panel. You can also use the mini USB cable to charge the FRX3’s built-in rechargeable battery or pop in a couple of AAA batteries.
To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall.
Light the way
The bright LED flashlight is always handy…at home, at the office, or even in the car. And the red flashing beacon is ideal for emergencies. Thanks to the glow-in-the-dark locator, the FRX3 is always easy to find.
