Add a little extra intrigue to your radio listening experience with the EyeMax radio. The EyeMax is a traditional radio/LED flashlight that includes one significant bonus: a clear casing that highlights the complex inner workings of the radio. Each time you charge the radio--the EyeMax offers solar, self-charging, and external power options--you can watch the radio convert human energy into pure listening pleasure. It's unique, fun, and educational.
Because of the radio's patented self-charge technology, you can enjoy unparalleled playtime performance all day long. No need to plug it in or use disposable batteries: just keep it charged through the solar panel or crank charger. In direct sunlight, the EyeMax will charge itself and play continuously, so you can listen to your favorite tunes throughout the day. With no sun, you'll enjoy one hour of music for each one minute of cranking, and you can add more cranks anytime you want (the LED charge level indicator tells you the best speed to crank). Plus, you can fully charge the internal NiMH batter anytime from either the solar panel or external charging adapter, so you can arrive at your destination with a full charge. It's the most sustainable entertainment solution available. (When fully charged, the EyeMax delivers 25 hours of playtime at normal volume.)
The EyeMax is more than just a radio, however. The EyeMax lets you catch the latest weather news by tuning into the weather band, which includes seven NOAA/MSC channels. As an alternative, you can listen to your full music collection using the integrated iPod/MP3 adapter. The EyeMax even includes a built-in LED flashlight for after-dark activities.
