Listen up

With this AM/FM/NOAA weather band digital radio you’ll always be in tune and up to date. The telescopic antenna provides for enhanced range and reception. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.

Ready, set, crank

Turn the hand turbine for 90 seconds and produce enough power for 15 minutes of music, news and weather.

Light the way

The bright 3 LED flashlight is always handy…at home, at the office or even in the car.

Made with lightweight yet durable aluminum, the Rover is shiny, portable and ideal in any emergency.

Say hello

Crank for one minute and produce enough power for a 30-second call or a few critical texts. 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.

This is a great little gadget that offers a lot: flashlight, radio and phone charger all powered by the hand crank. We lost power for several days in the recent Halloween or Easter and we were so glad that we had it on hand.

This unit is convenient, well designed and handy. It is lighter, smaller and in some ways more capable than its more expensive Axis brother and the FR series units. More advanced battery (Li-Poly). Greater charge in less crank time. Fully chargeable using a USB cord attached to an AC adapter. When fully charged, the radio can run for hours. Can charge cellphones when you are NOT cranking unlike other units. Analogue tuning allows use both in the United States and overseas. Digital units do not have that capability.

4.0 out of 5 stars

I bought this as a christmas present for my boyfriend. He absolutely LOVES it and actually uses it just to listen to the radio all the time because he's having so much fun with it (I may have to buy us a second one for legit camping trips :p)

I can't go too much into detail because it stays with him, but I can say it is well made, employs beautiful design, and is efficient. He said he only cranked it for a few seconds as a test and was able to listen to the radio for some ungodly amount of time. Needless to say he is more than impressed with the crank-to-radio time ratio.

I was leaning towards going with a cheaper crank radio because we don't have a lot of money, but quality is also extremely important to me. After pulling my hair out over the cheap models that didn't have the combination of features I wanted, the crank capacity, or just the quality I was hoping to provide in a gift, I finally accepted that you get what you pay for and this is a superior product. You will not regret this purchase, and it is definitely worth the price jump over the $15 models from other brands.

I saw these for sale in the Sharper Image store at my local mall...if they are still in stock you may want to stop by a store and get a feel for this in person.

The only criticism I have is that the writing rubs off easily. The labels for dials and any other writing on the piece is a kind of chalky material and was a horrible decision by Eton...I was able to easily scratch off part of a word just lightly using my fingernail to test it out.  Just make sure you get to know it and what the dials are before putting it through heavy use in case the writing rubs off.
