Eton FRX2 Multipurpose Radio -
Eton's compact, multi-purpose FRX2 Radio is a solar, DC battery, or hand turbine powered AM/FM/NOAA weather radio with a USB smart phone charger. The FRX2 allows you to be prepared for any emergency, at home and on the go, so you don't have to worry about being without power! Spin the hand turbine for 60 seconds to get 10-15 minutes of weather updates, news and entertainment. To charge your smart phone, simply plug it into the USB port. Power will automatically "dump charge" to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. The FRX2 is easy to find, thanks to the glow-in-the-dark locater, so it's perfect for camping and surprise power outages. It even includes a bright and long-lasting LED flashlight that's handy in any situation and there's also an input to charge via a wall socket or computer using the included mini-USB cord.


  • Analog tuning knobs on side offer smooth dialing to zero in on finicky signals; full-range monophonic front speaker serves up clear sound
  • Multipurpose radio with Dynamo motor / Hand trubine crank charger
  • 3.5mm earphone jack allows easy private listening with headphones (headphones not included)
  • The Eton FRX 2 radio features an FM/AM radio receiver that can also tune in all 7 NOAA weather channels
  • Handy flashlight features 3 bright white LEDs for a dependable source of light when the power is out; glow-in-the dark indicator makes it easy to locate the radio in the dark
  • Receives AM/FM bands and NOAA weather
  • Built-in USB cell-phone charger breathes life into most brands of cell phone batteries (USB cord not included)
  • Internal rechargeable NiMH battery pack stores power generated from dynamo hand crank, solar panel or USB port (USB cord not included)
  • Telescoping antenna for FM reception; internal ferrite antenna for AM reception
  • DC input (mini USB)

The compact Eton FRX 2 radio keeps you informed and prepared for emergencies or travel, whether you have a power source or not!

Perfect in a pinch

I received this emergency radio, and I thought 'great, thanks but will I really use this?'

I've never thought about buying a device like this. Then a couple of weeks later we had a storm roll through and blow down tree limbs and knock out power for a couple hours, just after sunset.

I found the value in the product, immediately. I had a flashlight and a weather radio to track the storm and stay informed. Fortunately it was just a mild storm with strong winds.

Did I mention how nice it is to have a flashlight on an emergency radio?

I did not have to crank the hand turbine or charge my cell phone, but it sure is nice to have a back-up plan just incase.

Thanks REI for taking back the radio

We had high hopes for this compact radio. Mainly wanted the Weather report,but liked the other features too. Just couldn't get a weather band even sitting next to a Harbor. We tried others in the store,and they don't receive well either. Time for a redesign Eton. Hoping no campers/boaters are relying on this gadget. And we so thank REI for accepting the return.

Could've Been Great

The frequency indicator broke on the first use. Radio will still change stations but you cannot tell what station you're on. I really wanted this radio to work becuase I love all the features and it does function as advertised. But with such a poor strength in the controls I can't rely on this in an emergency situation.

Weather Band completely useless

FM comes in okay but weather band is so weak it's useless. Returning this radio immediately.
