Additional Information
This compact multi-powered radio receives AM/FM and weather bands, can charge your smartphone via USB, and works as an emergency LED flashlight. Spin the hand turbine for 60 seconds to get 10-15 minutes of radio and flashlight use. Plug your phone into the USB port and power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. Small enough to store in an emergency kit, backpack or glove box, the FR1 packs a ton of features into its portable size. And it’s mighty enough to fully charge most smartphones, play tunes and news, receive weather alerts, and light the night. Useful for natural disasters such as Tornadoes, Hurricanes, and Earthquakes.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from digital good battery bad These are good but the battery is tiny barrel battery rated 3.6 volt maybe 300 milli amp hours, there is enough space inside the unit to hold 3 rechargeable C batteries in a row from top to bottom meaning (battery battery battery) consumers want to be able to dump charge a full day. 3 rechargeable C batteries rated a small 1000 milli amp hours each is good enough to last all day. We should able to update the flashlight feature with a single cree led with low medium high settings up to 1 watt with one switch the antenna should be built inside the housing the extendable antenna is outdated 1970s technology.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of several simi!lar units I osn Extra rugged design. No mechanical knobs or buttons to break. No battery compartment provided (not needed anyway). Water resistant. Delivers a couple minutes light after only a few cranks. Intuitive controls (so the included manual can be discarded after a one time read) ... I bought a second one after evaluating the first.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad This is a good product however I have bought two and both broke on me within 3 months of having it. Very disappointed in the product because of this but it worked well before the the break.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, the proper tool I purchased this equipment 3 weeks ago. I charged it up and works perfectly with or without electricity. Don’t go for cheaper products; this is perfect and reliable. I feel very prepared in case of an emergency now. Thank you so much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I just received this small radio and it is perfect in case of a disaster. So far have not had a chance to use it, which is a good thing. BUT nonetheless, it will come in handy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety First I bought this a month ago and am happy I did. I haven't had to use it, but I feel safe knowing I have it in case of emergency. I like knowing I can charge my phone even if I am without electrical power for a time

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not work! I got this item as a gift for donating to the local public radio station. The radio comes on for 1 second, I cannot get the unit to be in any particular "mode" and it simply doesn't charge my phone. That's after cranking for 5 minutes. The instructions are terrible.
