The AXIS is a new addition to the TurboDyne Series by Eton. The AXIS has some great features to help you when at home or away and left without power. It features a digital tuner with AM (520-1710 KHz) and FM (87-108 MHz), NOAA weatherband – all 7 channels plus “ALERT”, direct USB power transfer, white 4 LED light source that is built in, and flashing beacon red LED light. There is a TUNE knob to adjust stations and it is equipped with a telescopic antenna for FM and WB stations. The AXIS also comes with the feature of a digital alarm clock, connectors with rubber gaskets/plugs to seal out moisture, 3.5 mm headphone output, USB cell phone charger, and AUX-IN input. This little buddy weighs about 1 1/2 lbs. is roughly 6″x6″x2″ (WxHxD) in size.
The AXIS can be powered in three different ways: from 3 AAA batteries (you must provide), aluminum self-powered hand turbine technology, or AC power. One minute of self-powered cranking equals a 30 second phone call. If your phone is plugged into the AXIS to charge for 20 minutes, it equals roughly 20-25 minutes talk time. The AXIS has DC 5V input and features a rechargeable NiMH battery.
With purchase of the American Red Cross AXIS, a USB cable, owner’s manual and warranty card are also included. Never fear being left in the dark again with the AXIS. Check out http://www.etoncorp.com for more information. Suggested retail price for the AXIS is $70.00.
