Crank Up the Eton FRX3 Radio During Emergencies

Most times, people don’t really put much thought into stocking up on emergency supplies until the actual emergency itself is upon them. This can result in a lot of chaos and even worse, panic.

So while things are all good and there are no emergencies or calamities looming, I think it’s time you put together an emergency kit for good measure. Stock up on canned stuff, pack together some sheets, and put together a first aid kit. And throw in the Eton FRX3 radio if you’ve got still got some space left over.

Eton FRX3

Basically, the Eton FRX3 is a crank radio that will keep you connected to the rest of the world in case you find yourself trapped somewhere or far away from the rest of civilization. It’s powered by the crank, so no external power sources needed. If it’s bright out, the FRX3’s internal battery charges up via solar energy, since it’s got solar panels lined up at the top, too.

Aside from being a radio, the FRX3 is also a LED flashlight and USB charger for your gadgets. The multi-purpose radio also has a glow-in-the-dark outline to make sure you can still use it and spot it, even in the dark.

The Eton FRX3 was unveiled at CES 2012 and will be available for sale soon for $60.
