Eton FRX 3 Multipurpose Digital Radio

Item #: 89404

Our Price: $60.00

Red


Eton's FRX3 Multipurpose Radio allows you to be prepared for any emergency at home or on the go, so you don't have to worry about being without power! Eton's rechargeable FRX3 is a preparedness radio with AM/FM, all seven NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) weather band stations and the "Alert" system. When the "Alert" function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast emergency weather alerts for your area, such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms. Set the solar panel in the sun or spin the hand turbine for one minute to get 10-15 minutes of radio and flashlight use. There are also AAA battery and DC power alternatives (mini-USB included). the FRX3 also serves as a renewable power source for your other critical devices because of its USB smart phone charger. Simply plug in your phone into the USB port and power will automatically "dump charge" to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. This radio has a glow-in-the-dark locator so you can find it easily at night, plus an LED flashlight and red flashing beacon for emergencies. If you want more than just the radio, there's an AUX-input to play your own tunes and a headphone output for individual listening.

                      Overall this is a great radio, happy with the sound quality, great in an emergency and for fireside use. The biggest issue is how easily the flashlight turns on when transporting. We like to strap the radio to the top of the pack to allow it to charge while hiking, simply brushing against a bush or rubbing against the pack will turn the light on negating any charge it may be storing.

                      Also a note about the cell phone charging, really only useable for emergency purposes. It is a direct dump from the winder to the phone, it will not charge from the batteries or solar panel. Winding results in enough charge to make an emergency call, not check your email, fully charge phone or the like.

                                A:

                                It will charge other phones as well however the cable it comes with is a USB to mini USB cable. Youwould have to provide your own cable for other hook ups.
