Safe and sound

This all-purpose, rechargeable weather alert radio with solar panel and hand turbine power generator will keep you in the know, on alert, and well connected. No emergency kit is complete without it.

Stay alert

When the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms.

Listen up

Stay in tune and up to date with this AM/FM/NOAA weather band digital radio with display and alarm clock. If you want more than just the radio, there’s an AUX-input to play your own tunes. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.

More power to you

The FRX3 powers up in multiple ways—via solar panel, hand crank, built-in rechargeable battery, or traditional batteries.

Ready, set, go

Crank the hand turbine for one minute and you’ll produce enough power for 15-20 minutes of music, news and weather. Or simply charge it in the sun using the built- in solar panel. You can also use the mini USB cable to charge the FRX3’s built-in rechargeable battery or pop in a couple of AAA batteries.

Say hello

To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall.

Light the way

The bright LED flashlight is always handy…at home, at the office, or even in the car. And the red flashing beacon is ideal for emergencies. Thanks to the glow-in-the-dark locator, the FRX3 is always easy to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars

By Dutchy down under (Down under) - See all my reviews

I have been getting into solar stuff some time ago, seeing I reside in Australia it just makes sense, sun is something we have plenty of! and it is free power. I knew the weather station function on this great gadget is not functional here down under, but I just wanted this great little unit. I won't go into the details of all the functions as it explains that well enough on here, but it is very well made, does not feel or look cheap, and the dynamo has that real solid feel to it, I did not buy it via Amazon as they won't ship it down under (why Amazon why?) so I bought it from Cabela's, and their price and shipping cost were really competitive, I even wrote a very positive review and praised Cabela, but for some reason they did not publish the review, so hence I did it via Amazon.

Anyway, great little unit, lots of real usable functions, 5 out of 5 stars for me! would I recommend it? damn yeah, get one you will love it.

This product was as described and shipped on time. I used the radio and phone charger during Sandy and outside of a sore arm, it worked great.

By Buschchris1 - See all my reviews

This is a good gift idea for nayonewho spebds time outdoor or has the Zombie Appocolypse in mind. I would like to see a water proof version that is boyant for those who go sailing or fishing or anything were it may get dowsed with water. The cell phone charger was what sold me on it since being able to do that opens up a range of options in an emergency like GPS, maps and even a call to 911 may be possible.

I think this is a great gift idea and good to just have around. Cheers.

How is the FRX3 alert procedure activated?

Alert

With the antenna pulled up all the way, tune to the strongest of the 7 NOAA weather frequencies and go back to the strongest one. While listening to it, press the ALERT button. The audio goes off, but the radio is still on, constantly monitoring for alerts. When one comes in, it will automatically turn the radio on and you’ll hear the alert.
