Key Features:

  • Look No Further
    Need a weather alert radio that’s rugged , rechargeable, and reliable, not to mention solar-powered, splashproof, smartphone & tablet charging, Bluetooth® streaming and with S.A.M.E. technology? The FRX5-BT is just the ticket. With a rechargeable lithium battery, superduper solar panel and hand crank power generator, it’s an essential for every emergency kit—at home, at work, or in the great outdoors.
  • On Extra Alert
    When the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast NOAA emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms. Plus, the FRX5-BT also features S.A.M.E. technology (Specific Area Message Encoding) for extra alert power. Just enter your S.A.M.E. county code and if there’s a warning, watch or advisory you’ll see it—with red, orange or green lights—and hear about it, too. You can set up to 25 locations so you’ll be safe, wherever you are.
  • Triple-Power
    The FRX5-BT powers up in three fabulous ways—via solar panel, hand crank and built-in rechargeable lithium battery.
  • Listen Up
    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, it's Bluetooth® ready and has AUXin to play your own tunes or listen to your favorite podcast. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.
  • Say Hello
    To charge your smartphone or tablet, simply plug it into the 5V 2.1A USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your device, just like plugging into the wall. The FRX5-BT will provide >50% charge to most smartphones.
  • All-Powerful
    The super-sized solar panel will charge the battery fully in 5-6 hours. Looking for alternative sources of energy? Crank the hand turbine for four minutes and you’ll produce enough power for 10-15 minutes of music, news and weather or one minute of talk time. You can also use the micro-USB cable to charge the FRX5-BT’s built-in rechargeable battery.
  • Light The Night
    Shine the bright LED flashlight to find your way. Use the glow-in-the-dark locator and illuminated buttons when you’re in the dark. And for big-time emergencies, flash the red emergency beacon.
  • Add Some Ambiance
    The built-in, top mounted, dimmable ambient light on the top of the FRX5-BT provides just the right amount of light for the family to still enjoy a relaxing conversation or dinner even while the storm rages outside. Use it to light the tent on your next camping trip.
  • Weather Or Not
    The FRX5-BT has an IPX4 splashproof rating2 so neither sleet nor snow nor rain will hamper its performance. Ideal for camping trips or river expeditions.
