Keep your household prepared with the FRX3. The 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 locater so you can find it easily at night plus a 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.
There are many products out there that have a USB cell phone charger, but most don't provide weather alerts and let you listen to your own music like the FRX3.
Just sit back and let the sun do the work with the integrated solar panel. Plus, surrounding the panel is a long lasting glow-in-the-dark bezel that will help you find your FRX3 in the dark.

For me, the Eton Weather Alert radio is primarily an emergency radio (or possibly a camp radio). I don't expect to get much use out of it as a weather alert radio, so I did not go... Read morePublished 3 hours ago by Soar
While this is a little bit, it's highly functional and has some great features. I like the flashlight option, but because of the width it's not as hand holdable as I'd like. Read morePublished 8 hours ago by Melaina Lara
