From the Manufacturer
Be Red Cross Ready
The American Red Cross encourages everyone to be prepared for emergencies and disasters. Since these events can strike suddenly, individuals and families can make a difference by gathering important emergency supplies, making a plan and being informed.
Being Red Cross Ready is to join the ranks of the millions of people who are preparing themselves today to face and overcome tomorrow’s emergencies. Simple preparedness actions can equip people with the necessities that can make all the difference should an emergency occur.
Safe and Sound
Keep your household prepared with the American Red Cross FRX3. The hand turbine 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.
More Power to You
Spin the hand turbine for one minute to get 10-15 minutes of radio and flashlight use or place the FRX3 in the sun for a passive charging option. There are also AAA battery and DC power alternatives (mini-USB included).
Don’t Just Use It At Home
The American Red Cross FRX3 is great to take on camping trips. It will light your way, provide music around the fire, give you access to news & weather and also can charge your phone.
Power Your Phone
The American Red Cross FRX3 also serves as a renewable power source for your other critical devices because of its USB smartphone 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. There are many products out there that have a USB cell phone charger, but most don’t have the capability to charge a smartphone like the FRX3.
Lights 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.

The main feature that clinched it for me wasn't really even advertised. I compared this to the eton FR600 and the Axis. The FRX3 does state in the manual that it dump-charges like the Axis (and it DOES), but it's not really advertised anywhere else. The styling looks a little nicer too than the AXIS. But the FRX3 supports solar charging, and the Axis does NOT. They're both the same price, but an extra power source is a definite plus, especially if it's "free". You CAN tune the FRX3 with the knob, or the up and down buttons, a nice feature I stumbled upon. It also supports 24 hour time, but it's not in the manual. Just press SET for the hour, again for the minutes, and again for the 12/24 hour. The unit charges through a window even on a slightly over cast day, so I can leave it in the window and not worry about the battery going dead from non-use, or having to keep it plugged in.Read more ›
construction is plastic- I don't believe it is waterproof (not a big deal to me). If you drop it, it may break depending on the height it is dropped from.
It has a cable for charging and comes with a rechargeable battery.
It can charge an iPhone4s and a Droid X2.
the crank is plastic so be gentle. You don't have to have brute strength to crank it or to utilize the recharge function.
The antenna is retractable and metal. It is easy to break but you can keep it tucked out of the way. The reception is good and dependent on your location. (am/fm/weather)
There is a solar recharging cell on the handle and it works nicely.
The flashlight is a joke. It is best suited for reading something close-up. Your best bet is to also have a flashlight around for emergencies. The flashing red light is also a joke. Again, have a handy flashlight to accompany this radio for emergencies.
Overall, I don't regret buying this radio. It is nice and serves the functions it was designed to perform. I would buy another if I needed to.
Good value for the money.
