The Eton FR1000 is a wonder of compact chic utility. We’re talking a self-powered hand crank AM/FM/Weather radio, with flashlight and SOS beacon, siren, cell phone charger and…get this…a two way walkie-talkie function built in. We’re figuring that you’ll be handing and cranking a fair bit to keep all that lot powered up at once, but in an emergency it may just save lives. We’re rather partial to a bit of saving lives around here. Priced at something like $150.00 from next month. [Via Electric Pig]
This self-powered hand-crank radio lets you stay informed, even when the power is out. Tune into AM, FM and weather band frequencies for the most up-to-date information in case of emergency. The Voicelink is more than just a radio—it’s a multifunctional wonder. The two-way walkie-talkie feature with GMRS technology lets you stay in touch, as does the built-in cell phone charger. You also get a flashlight, a beacon light that can function as an SOS signal, and a siren. Power it all with the twist of a crank.
