This ultra-portable, compact device is ideal to have on hand when you're out roughing it. It also makes a great addition to any emergency-preparedness kit. No plugs or wires are required. Instead, turn the hand crank to power the MICROLINK, or capture the sun's energy and run it on solar power. You'll always know what's going on, thanks to the AM, FM and NOAA Weather Band tuners. You can also tune in to the FCC and EAS public alert systems. This, along with the flashlight and cell phone charger, make the MICROLINK ARC FR160 one versatile little device.

It has a high-quality AM/FM tuner, providing you with news, entertainment and public service announcements. Not only that, but it also integrates a NOAA Weather Band receiver that brings you weather forecasts, alerts and other emergency messages--information vital to backpackers and travelers. The bright white 3-LED flashlight is perfect for lighting the way at night, or for signaling to others across long distances. Additionally, the integrated headphone jack lets you listen in privacy.

Eton has designed the MICROLINK ARC FR160 to be powered by the sun or the easy to use hand generator. The built-in rechargeable battery pack can be charged from the integrated dynamo hand crank. A small array of waterproof, shatterproof, high-performance glass encapsulated amorphous solar cells can also run the FR160. They are efficient enough to power the unit whenever the sun is up, even in overcast weather. These multiple power supplies can also be used to recharge cell phones.

• Turn the crank for about 90 seconds. This will result in
30-40 minutes of low volume play.
• Place the unit directly in sunlight. The solar power adapter
on the top of the unit charges it automatically. About
8-10 hours in the sun will allow about 3-5 hours of play.
