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).
