A Survivalist Type Weather Radio With Four Power Options

Since we are in the midst of some pretty significant weather events here in the U.S., I went on the hunt for an Emergency Weather Radio… The Eton FRX5 Hand Crank Emergency Weather Radio with SAME Alerts jumped out at me primarily due to the four options to power the unit (rechargeable lithium battery, solar panel, hand crank and AAA batteries), the built-in LED flashlight, an alarm clock.; AND, the ability to charge your smartphone. Simply plug your smartphone it into the 5V≈2.1A USB port and the FRX5 will “dump charge” to your device (just like plugging into the wall). The FRX5 will fully charge most smartphones once. This weather radio in comparison to to other weather radios I looked at fits more into the survivalist category. The FRX5 carries a solid 4 star customer review rating at Amazon…
