A Radio for Everyday Preparedness
When emergencies or outdoor adventures take you off the grid, you need a device that can meet your multiple needs. The Etón Scorpion is a compact unit that you can easily store in a safety kit or toss in your rucksack and take with you anywhere you go. With the rugged exterior skin and aluminum carabiner, the SCORPION is designed to endure any extreme outdoor conditions or emergency situation you may find yourself in the midst of.
The emergency essential features include a crank powered handle, built-in LED flashlight, and USB/cell phone charger. The high-quality digital AM/FM tuner provides you with news, entertainment and public service announcements. Not only that, but it also integrates a NOAA Weather Band receiver that brings you weather forecasts, alerts and other emergency messages - information vital to backpackers and travelers.
In addition to the crank powered handle, the Scorpion also includes a powerful solar panel with a battery charge indicator to ensure that you’re always aware of the amount of power you have remaining. The digital tuner/display allows for precise tuning and optimal reception everywhere you go. And if that wasn’t enough, there is an AUX-in for the pure enjoyment of music from an iPod or mp3. It’s perfect for any room in your house or any outdoor venue.
Generate energy to power this sleek unit by simply setting it under the sun or with a few turns of the hand crank. Free yourself and ease your mind with self-powered radio broadcasts anytime anywhere.
AM/FM/NOAA Weather Band
Easy tuning to any band whether it’s AM (520-1710 KHz), FM (87-108 MHz) or NOAA weather band. This keeps the listener tuned-in to weather forecasts, alerts and other emergency messages—information vital during severe weather conditions.
AUX-IN and Headphone Jack
Simply plug any iPod or mp3 player and take your music with you. Listen to your music without distractions.
USB phone charger
Charge virtually any phone or small electrical device with this added feature.
Sound quality - The sound quality is what I expected.
This may be due to needing to crank it to charge as it does not appear to use the solar cell or internal battery to charge the USB devices.
The plastic crank handle itself also seems flimsy and could easily break if too much stress is applied to it.

This is a great little product. Directions are a little skimpy but it's easy to figure out. Works better than I thought and is compact. Good item to have in your survival kit.Published 1 month ago by C. Eichhorn
Mine never charged via the solar cell. Hand cranking for about one minute produced less than one minute of radio and less of flash light. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Evan
