Be ready for anything! The Etón FRX3 with four power options (solar, hand turbine, AAA battery, and DC input) is much more than a preparedness radio. Offering 24/7 weather alerts, a USB smartphone charger, an LED flashlight and red flashing beacon for emergencies, glow in the dark locator feature, and hand turbine for manual recharging when no AC power source is available.
In addition to AM/FM tuning, the radio is compatible with all seven NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) weather band stations and the “Alert” system. When the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms.
Spin the hand turbine for one minute to get 10-15 minutes of radio and flashlight use, or place the FRX3 in the sun for a passive charging option—just sit back and let the sun do the work with the integrated solar panel. There are also AAA battery and DC power alternatives (mini-USB included).
The FRX3 also serves as a renewable power source for your other critical devices because of its USB smartphone charger. Simply plug in your phone into the USB port and power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. There are many products out there that have a USB cell phone charger, but most don’t have the capability to charge a smartphone like the FRX3.
