Solar Charger with All-Terrain Guidance Functions
Eton Raptor Solar USB Charger and Weatherband Radio
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).
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.
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.
