The FRX2 is a radio that's always prepared, wherever you are. No plugs or wires are required. Turn the hand crank to power the dynamo motor/hand turbine, or capture the sun’s energy and run it on solar power. With this radio you’ll always know what’s going on, thanks to the AM (520-1710 KHz), FM (87-108 MHz), and NOAA weather bands (7 channels). It has a telescopic antenna to help improve weak reception. But, it's more than just a radio. It is also a flashlight with 3 white LEDs, and a USB smart phone charger (USB cable not included). It also features a glow in the dark locator, DC input (mini USB), Headphone output, and an internal rechargeable Ni-MH battery.
