Ready for anything

This rugged(1), rechargeable weather alert radio is designed to keep you in the know, on the go—rain or shine. With a 1000mAh rechargeable lithium battery, large solar panel and hand turbine power generator, you’ll never be out of touch or in the dark again. 

On alert

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. 

Listen up

This AM/FM/NOAA weather band radio keeps you in tune and up to date. The digital tuner and back-lit display make it easy to find and see your stations. In the mood to listen alone? Just plug in your favorite headphones. 

Quad Power

The FRX4 powers up in four fabulous ways—via solar panel, hand crank, built-in rechargeable lithium battery, or three alkaline batteries. 

All juiced up

Put the FRX4 in the sun and the built-in 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 also use the micro-USB cable to fully charge the FRX4’ built-in rechargeable battery in two hours or less. 

Say hello

To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the 5V 1A USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. Fully charged the FRX4 will provide a 50% charge to most smartphones. 

Bright stuff

With its super bright LED flashlight with dimmer, red emergency beacon and the cool glow-in-the-dark locator, the FRX4 will light up the night. 

Weather or not

The FRX4 has an IPX4 splashproof rating(2) so neither sleet, nor snow, nor rain will hamper its performance. Ideal for camping trips or outdoor adventures.   

 

1 – Drop-proof from a height of 3.3ft (1m). Drop protection varies depending on drop conditions.
2 – Water resistant to IEC 60529 IPX4. It is not waterproof and should not be immersed in water.
