The Eton Raptor Advantage

Imagine going on a long hike or walking through the dessert with a radio, cell phone charger, weather alert and more- all wrapped up into one product. It's less to pack and more to enjoy! Not only does the Eton Raptor tell you the basics of your journey, but it can also take pressure readings so you can be aware of changing weather, it can tell you how high you've climbed and it can wake you up in the morning so you can continue your trek. When it gets too dark to continue, enjoy local AM and FM radio stations or use its flashlight to find your supper. It even has a bottle opener so you can crack open a cold one and relax. Since it's been charging in the sunlight, you don't need to worry about charging it while away from electricity. In fact, let it charge your cell phone. When you get back home, use its rechargeable battery to enjoy inside as well. The raptor comes in black, green and orange colors to fit your personality. The Raptor is 2.875 inches wide x 8 inches tall x 1.25 inches deep. It weighs only 11.7 ounces (332 g).

This is a picture of the orange raptor showing the front and back
The Radio and Weather Radio

The Raptor plays AM (520-1710 KHz), FM (87.5-108 MHz) and seven NOAA Weather Channels. These will give you all you need to stay on top of the latest weather tracking and will also entertain you no matter where you are. The weather station that comes in the strongest is the one you should listen to for your area. Simply pull up the telescopic antenna all the way, tune into a station, select your choice and enjoy! You can even store the stations you like into the memory so it's easy to find them again later.

The NOAA weather alert feature allows the NOAA Weather Service and other government agencies to send emergency alerts to you. Just tune into your strongest weather channel, press and release the MEM button and any urgent messages will come on as they are broadcast. You may get alerts ranging from dangerous weather ahead to things such as oil spills.

The Raptor Power

The Eton Raptor can use solar or battery power to operate. Charge the Raptor in direct sunlight for about 18 hours to get a full charge. It can be used without a full charge but will not play as long.

The Raptor also uses an 1800 mAh, 3.7 Volt DC, rechargeable lithium-ion battery. When fully charged, this battery will power the radio for about 30 hours at low volume. When you purchase the Eton Raptor it may have enough charge to play the radio for a short period of time. However, it is recommended to charge it with your computer's USB port or with solar power. You can also use an AC adapter with a mini USB socket but that charger is not included. The Raptor's rechargeable lithium-ion battery will fully charge in about four hours. Charging it for less time will result in lower play time.

The radio will play while charging.

It's Easy-to-See

Each button pressed causes the display light to come on for 10 seconds. This makes it easy to see what you're doing, even while it's dark.

When I first got this unit, I thought it didn't work at all. I couldn't get the radio to turn on, or get most of the unit to function properly. It wasn't the Raptor, it was the horrible instructions! I sat on the back porch playing with it and figured out how it was supposed to work. Seems the functions were activated, but they have to be turned off BEFORE you can turn on the radio (*AM/FM/Weather) The unit should have been set to off. Then you can turn on the functions, or the Radio, but not at the same time. Once I turned off the functions, I turned on the radio without a problem. In the off position, it shows some info on the main screen, like the time, etc. The solar charger doesn't work on my Palm phone, but the solar charger does work well on keeping the unit fully charged. My unit seems well built and took it on my first camping trip and it worked well. It saved a lot of space and I am quite happy with it. Eton really does need to make a decent instruction manual and they might start by putting one on-line.

I bought this even though I couldn't find any reviews because I figured it was worth a shot due to all the features it had. I really wanted to like it but I was completely disappointed. Right away I noticed the antenna was loose. I figured ok, not that big a deal and went into the quick setup book. Everything seemed easy enough to set. It was only until I got to the full instruction book that I started to get frustrated. Contrary to how this thing looks, it is not rugged at all. Right away they tell you that it's not splash proof or can even be used in high humidity. Also if you think you're getting a practical solar charger, radio, compass, etc you're wrong. They tell you takes 18 hours to get a full charge on the battery! And if you think you're getting a decent radio you'd be wrong as well. There were no instructions on how to start the radio! Not in the quick setup book or in the main instruction manual. The simply tell you turn on the radio! I played with it for an hour and could not get the radio to work! The instructions on how to power on and off the device were the same as the radio. The simply tell you to press the power button to turn the device on and off. I tried holding the power button down for 3 seconds, then 10 seconds and nothing! Great work Eton! You should stick to making Red Cross emergency radios. If you want a solar charger get a solio classic. If you want a radio get any old one with a hand crank. If you want an altimeter, barometer, thermometer, compass go to or REI and you'll be able to find a clip on style device that does all that. I'm never buying another eton product unless I get the chance to check it out in person.Read more ›

When I first bought, I charged it and used it on a bike trip. It worked. And yes it is not at all easy or intuitive to use! When home I charged it and set it in the window to squeeze out a bit of a charge each day.

When I went to use it again it was dead so I put it on the charger. It worked when on the charger. As soon as I took it off the charger it was dead. The batteries are dead and no longer takes a charge.

The flaw here is that the unit lacks circuitry to prevent the battery from discharging too low. The unit is always on at some level of operation and it simply keeps drawing power until it kills the battery (the battery gets to a point where it will no longer take a charge). Good product design should auto off when the battery voltage reaches a critical point and it does not do that.

I contacted Eton about this and to get replacement batteries. Their reply included:
- The batteries cannot be changed.
- You cannot charge through the window
- Because it's USB charged, it can be kept on the charger indefinitely

No help there .... and none of which is in the manual.

So now I have a solar powered radio for emergency use that works perfect when plugged in ... but not when power is off.

You've been warned ... I would not buy again!

This product arrived in fine condition. It has a rugged anodized rubber outside and it is splash-proof NOT water-proof (they do not claim it to be water-proof).

-Great radio with great sound
-Compass works accurately once set
-Barometer is actually accurate, along with temperature.
