Product Description

Eton's compact, multi-purpose FRX2 Radio is a solar, DC battery, or hand turbine powered AM/FM/NOAA weather radio with a USB smart phone charger. The FRX2 allows you to be prepared for any emergency, at home and on the go, so you don't have to worry about being without power! Spin the hand turbine for 60 seconds to get 10-15 minutes of weather updates, news and entertainment. To charge your smart phone, simply plug it into the USB port. Power will automatically "dump charge" to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. The FRX2 is easy to find, thanks to the glow-in-the-dark locater, so it's perfect for camping and surprise power outages. It even includes a bright and long-lasting LED flashlight that's handy in any situation and there's also an input to charge via a wall socket or computer using the included mini-USB cord.Glow in the dark locator makes it easy to locate the radio in the dark.DC input (mini USB).3.5mm earphone jack allows easy private listening with headphones (headphones not included).Internal rechargeable Ni-MH battery stores power generated from dynamo hand crank, solar panel or USB port (USB cord not included)..Telescoping antenna for FM reception; internal ferrite antenna for AM reception.Size: 5.4" x 2.4" x 2.4" (W x H x D).Weight: 9 oz. (255 g)*.

I bought the Eton FRX2 for my bug out bag, but with so many blackouts from storms I use this radio a lot. This radio has already proved its worth. The light lasts for hours without much cranking. Being able to charge the radio on laptop or in sun helps me be prepared before rain storms or for trips to the beach. I have used it a few times to charge my smartphone, and it charges pretty quickly.

My favorite thing about the radio is the reception. I accidentally broke the top of the antennae one night. I was afraid the radio wouldn't work as well, but I was surprised to find that it still worked. I can get the weather band radio very easily. I can get almost any local station were I am, broken antennae and all.

The only thing I wish this radio had was a way to know how much battery was left. I would go a day without charging the radio and it would lose power. I would have to crank away. The radio body is kinda clunky, but how it preforms over shadows how it looks. That's a good thing.

It's sturdy enough for frequent use. I've dropped it without much problem too. Great radio for your needs.

We have the American Red Cross FRX2 Hand Turbine AM/FM Weather Radio with Smartphone Charger - Red (ARCFRX2WXR) version of this radio (just branded different) and it is a very good choice for an emergency AM/FM Weather Radio that is suitable for home use, camping, car emergency kit, or as part of a "bug out bag". Here are my observations:

Pros -
+ Many Charging Options; can be charged by placing it in sunlight via the built in solar panel, by using the integrated hand crank, or via a mini-USB cable (not included)
+ Acts As Charger; can charge cell phones via a standard USB cable (not included)
+ Bright Flashlight; the 3-LED flashlight is very powerful and lasts a very long time
+ Weather Radio; includes 7 NOAA weather channel presets

Cons -
- Plastic Construction; unit looks and feels "plasticky"
- Radio Sound Quality; while not really detrimental to getting information, the internal speaker leaves a lot to be desired but using the earphone jack makes a big difference

This is a decent emergency radio that is also useful for camping and hiking.

Highly Recommended!

I loved it when I first got it, the feature set is amazing. Weather radio, solar panel, USB in and out, FM radio, flashlight...

But after around a year, during which I used it infrequently, it's slowly showing its poor design/workmanship. First, the crank handle warped after being left in the sun (it's solar powered, maybe use a plastic with a higher melting point, duh). Then, the button for the flashlight became harder and harder to operate, until eventually the entire button assembly just fell out and now I essentially have no flashlight function (unless I want to do some soldering, which I don't). And now, the needle on the radio dial has disappeared. I have no idea where it went, but rolling up and down the frequencies, there's no indication of where I'm at (not that it was terribly accurate to begin with, the scale was completely off).

I bought this primarily for backpacking and only just received it today, but am impressed with it so far. It is compact, lightweight and has very good reception. I am able to get noaa weather and radio stations that have poor reception. The speaker is very good for its small size. I can clearly hear it from the other room. I am not sure if it will charge my cell phone but it does charge my kindle (with a different cable that I had). I have it sitting on a windowsill in direct sunlight and it has been playing for several hours. There are 3 ways to charge it, with the solar panel, the hand crank or it has a usb port so you can charge off your computer. You can't listen to the radio when you are charging a cell phone (or kindle) off it, which is the only thing I didn't like, but not really a big deal. Overall a very nice compact radio that can be used without relying on an outside power source.

I bought this radio along with the HY-88E. I am cross-posting this review to both items' pages. In sum: this is a better device than the HY-88E; it runs longer on a solar charge (had them side by side in the window). The crank is a little quieter than the HY-88E, but it has a higher-pitched whine. Both radios played music nicely, and both were unable to tune in any radio stations from NOAA, as my home is located in an area where NOAA no longer supports transmitters. However, if NOAA were important to you, I would choose the Eton FRX2, as each NOAA weather channel is click-selected on the dial.

The HY-88E is smaller, which can be an advantage; I found when cranking it, however, that the small size made it impossible for me NOT to press on the solar cell on it. I do not know if this will cause long-term damage.

The HY-88E has a better flashlight. The beam is round, and has a sharp focused edge. If you chiefly worry about a flashlight, buy the HY-88E.

It was in the area of charging Cell Phones that I found the biggest difference. The Eton comes outfitted with a "normal" size USB plug. Turning its dial to "cell," plugging in a USB cable to the Eton, and then plugging that cable into my cell phone, and then later an iPod, allowed me to charge both by using the crank (it is SLOOOOW.) The HY-88E comes with a whole host of plugs and adapters, but none that made it usable: its USB output is a mini outlet, as opposed to the full-size USB on the Eton (and on my computer as I type this). I simply do not have any mini-to-mini USB cables, and was unable to use the HY-88E to do anything to charge any phones. If you have the correct adapter (and, frankly, the number of adapters is stunning on the HY-88E), it should be a beaut.
