Eton Red Hand Turbine AM/FM/NOSS Analog Weather Radio, Model FRX2
Part emergency radio, part LED flashlight, the Eton FRX2 Weather Radio is a hand crank radio that will keep you out of the dark when the power goes out. One of the most important things to do during a disaster is to keep yourself informed, and the FRX2 will ensure you can do that even without access to electricity.
Depending on your location, emergency messages may be broadcast on various frequencies. The Eton FRX2 emergency radio can tune in to FM, AM and NOAA weather band radio frequencies, so you'll have access to a wide range of news sources, as well as your favorite music. But the radio is only half of the Eton FRX2's abilities. Built into the slim unit is also a super-bright LED flashlight, which can be invaluable in an emergency. Surrounding the light is a glow-in-the-dark bezel, so when the lights go out, you'll be able to first find your FRX2, then use it to find your way out.
Inside the Eton FRX2 flashlight radio is a rechargeable battery that will be easiest to recharge by plugging the unit into a wall outlet. But when the power's out is when the FRX2's best trick comes into play. Fold out the dynamo hand turbine, start turning and this hand crank flashlight will instantly come to life. Just a minute of cranking will give you 10-15 minutes of radio or flashlight usage.
Keep an Eton FRX2 Radio in your desk drawer or on the kitchen counter. Even if you're never stuck in an emergency, the radio and LED flashlight will be handy during daily life. And when you do need it, the versatility of the Eton FRX2 Emergency Radio could end up being a lifesaver.
