Now with the addition of Bluetooth® consumers can steam their own tunes or favorite podcasts anywhere, anytime.


Packing a lot of power in a compact form, with its 5V=2.1A USB output the FRX5 can fully charge most smartphones and also charges tablets, helping ensure that you can keep the fun going as well as connect with loved ones, even when you are away from an outlet. Other features include:
