If you’re like me, you have a lot of names on your gift lists.  And maybe like me, you want to give somebody something they’ll find really useful, so you need good gifts at a great price.  How about giving someone a product that that help them out if a winter storm causes them to lose power for a while or a car accident leaves them stranded with a dead phone?  The FRX2 Multi-powered Weather Radio from Eton could prove to be just what your loved ones need in an emergency situation.  The FRX2 has a built-in battery that can be charged via the built-in solar collector or by using the AC power adapter.  You can charge your cell phone or other USB-chargeable device using the FRX2, and you can even give your phone enough of a charge for an emergency call using the built-in hand-cranked dynamo.  It has an AM/FM/NOAA radio to keep you aware of conditions, and there’s a flashlight to light your way.  It even has a glow-in-the-dark indicator to help you find it when you need it.  Eton has it available in their store in black or red for $39.99.  Just in time for gifting, QVC has the Eton FRX2 available in graphite, red, yellow, green, purple, or blue for $26.83; this special pricing ends at 11:59pm tonight (November 7, 2013).

  2. It’s been 1 year since Super Storm Sandy and I really should have had this.

    I did have an old crank up radio, but something was wrong with the power storage so I couldn’t get more than 10 seconds of sound.

    It had no light which I really needed.

    And I had to walk 40+ blocks to find a hotel that had power. Then I could charge my phone to make calls to friends asking to be put up in their homes.

    My old crank radio was great for the 20th Century. But this is what we need for the 21st Century.
