The FRX5 is rugged, rechargeable, and reliable, not to mention solar-powered, splashproof, and smartphone charging. It’s an essential for every emergency kit— at home, at work, or in the great outdoors.
Stay in tune and up to date with this AM/FM/NOAA weather band digital radio with display and alarm clock. There’s an AUX-input to play your own tunes, and when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.
When the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast NOAA emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms. Plus, the FRX5 also features S.A.M.E. technology (Specific Area Message Encoding) to customize alerts for your specific location. Just enter your S.A.M.E. county code and if there’s a warning, watch or advisory you’ll see it—with flashing red, orange or green lights—and hear about it, too. You can set up to 25 locations so you’ll be safe, wherever you are.
The FRX5 powers up in four ways—via solar panel, hand crank, built-in rechargeable lithium battery, or three alkaline batteries. The super-sized solar panel will charge the battery fully in 5-6 hours. Crank the hand turbine for four minutes and you’ll produce enough power for 10-15 minutes of music, news and weather or one minute of talk time. You can use the micro-USB cable to charge the built-in rechargeable battery or simply use three AAA batteries.
To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the 5V 2.1A USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. The FRX5 will fully charge most smartphones once and can also charge tablets.
Use the glow-in-the-dark locator and illuminated buttons when you’re in the dark and shine the bright LED flashlight to find your way. The built-in, top mounted, dimmable ambient light on the top of the FRX5 provides just the right amount of light for the family to light the tent on a camping trip. When there is an emergency, flash the red emergency beacon.
The FRX5 is water resistant so it is ideal for camping trips or outdoor adventures. However, it is not waterproof and should not be immersed.
