Crank up the Etón FRX3 to get the power you need, when you need it.
Hurricanes. Tornados. Hail. Blackouts. No matter where you are, there’s bound to be a weather situation that leaves you without power. But with the Etón American Red Cross FRX3, you’ll be prepared for even the worst weather situations. On-board, you have an AM/FM radio (with alarm clock) and 7-channel NOAA weatherband radio with emergency alert. When the “alert” function is on, you’ll know immediately if there’s a weather emergency in your area such as a hurricane, tornado or severe thunderstorm. The built-in telescopic antenna provides maximum range and reception. Need a light? Crank the hand turbine or place the device in the sun for solar energy. One minute of cranking will get you 10-15 minutes of radio and flashlight use.

Keep critical devices charged and ready.
The FRX3 has a USB smart phone charger. Just plug in and the power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone from the internal Ni-MH battery. This emergency device also has an AUX input and 3.5mm output for headphones. All the connectors have rubber gaskets to seal out moisture.

Five power sources means you’re always “Red Cross” ready.
The Etón FRX3 can be powered by 3 AAA batteries, rechargeable Ni-MH battery, hand crank, solar power or USB cable (included).

Stay informed and prepared for whatever Mother Nature sends your way. Order your Etón FRX3 from Brookstone today!

Comments about Etón American Red Cross FRX3 Weather Radio:

From day one I put this in a sunny window and it started charging. I use it to play background music and I am very happy with it. It works great the sound is what is to expected from a small radio like this. The flashlight is not great but for a small light to get me to my other flashlights it works fine.

    Comments about Etón American Red Cross FRX3 Weather Radio:

    I used to work as a salesman at a Brookstone by me, and a few months into my employment there, Hurricane Sandy hit. A few days before the storm, we got a whole shipment of these to put on the floor, but I didn't know too much about them. Apparently the customers knew a lot about these radios and wanted them badly. People who never came to the store, or the mall the Brookstone was in, came specifically for this radio. I got mine the day before the storm based on the customers' reviews, and then we sold out of them in minutes when news of the storm hit. Now I see what the big deal was. This radio is awesome. It's not meant to have a house party with music, but it does have a pretty good speaker. You can charge it with a USB connection, but if the power goes out, then you can use batteries. If that options gone, then you can use the handcrank, but you have to crank it a while to have a significant charge. If you get tired cranking, then you can put it in the sun and use the solar power charge, but just warning you, it takes a long time to charge that way. This is really the perfect little thing to have during a storm.
