Etón Corporation’s rugged radios can be charged by hand crank or solar power, so you have multiple ways to stay connected if the electricity goes out. Along with a radio, these compact devices include a flashlight and cell phone charger. The Etón Microlink FR160 has an AM/FM and NOAA weatherband radio and a built-in 3-light LED flashlight. The Etón Solarlink FR360 offers the same radio band options, plus it adds a digital tuner, a more powerful flashlight, and the option to use conventional AAA batteries. Etón founder Esmail Amid-Hozour, who brought the technology to the U.S. from Germany, has a long history of working with the American Red Cross and donating radios to victims of natural disasters around the world.
But there’s no need to wait for an emergency to give Etón’s radios a try. They’re also great for connecting to your favorite station when you’re digging in the garden, relaxing at a campsite, or headed to the beach. Etón plugs you in... even when there are no plugs to be found.
