When emergencies or outdoor adventures take you off the grid, you need a device that can fill multiple needs. The Eton FRX5-BT Multi-powered AM/FM Radio w/NOAA Weather & Emergency Alert is a compact unit that you can easily store in a safety kit or toss in your rucksack and take anywhere. It functions as an AM, FM and NOAA weather radio. Plus, you can use it to charge your smart phone or MP3 player. Battery and AC power are always options; however this little wonder can also be powered with the hand crank or solely by the solar panels, making it a very "green" device.

Look no further

Need a shortwave radio that’s rugged(1), rechargeable, and reliable, not to mention solar-powered, splashproof and smartphone & tablet charging? The FRX5-BT is just the ticket. With a rechargeable lithium battery, super-duper solar panel and hand crank power generator, it’s an essential tool for use—at home, at work, or in the great outdoors.

Listen up

Stay in tune and up to date with this AM/FM/SW digital radio with display and alarm clock. If you want more than just the radio, there’s an AUX-input to play your own tunes. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.


The FRX5-BT powers up in four fabulous ways—via solar panel, hand crank, built-in rechargeable lithium battery, or alkaline batteries.


The super-sized solar panel will charge the battery fully in 5-6 hours. Looking for alternative sources of energy? Crank the hand turbine for four minutes and you’ll produce enough power for 10-15 minutes of music, news and weather or one minute of talk time. You can also use the micro-USB cable to charge the FRX5-BT’s built-in rechargeable battery.

Say hello

To charge your smartphone or tablet, simply plug it into the 5V 2.1A USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your device, just like plugging into the wall. The FRX5-BT will fully charge most smartphones once.

Light the night

Shine the bright LED flashlight to find your way. Use the glow-in-the-dark locator and illuminated buttons when you’re in the dark. And for big-time emergencies, flash the red emergency beacon.

Add some ambiance

The built-in, top mounted, dimmable ambient light on the top of the FRX5-BT provides just the right amount of light for the family to still enjoy a relaxing conversation or dinner even while the storm rages outside. Use it to light the tent on your next camping trip.

Weather or not

The FRX5-BT has an IPX-4 splashproof rating(2) so neither sleet nor snow nor rain will hamper its performance. Ideal for camping trips or river expeditions.


1 – Drop-proof from a height of 3.3ft (1m). Drop protection varies depending on drop conditions. 2 – Water resistant to IEC 60529 IPX4. It is not waterproof and should not be immersed in water.
