Solar or Hand Crank Radio and Flashlight

When you’re out in the wilderness fishing or camping and need to keep in touch with the weather channel, a radio that isn’t dependant on an electric supply is essential. This Eton Scorpio radio can be solar charged or hand-cranked when the sun lets you down. It has a digital AM/FM radio tuner and picks up the NOAA weather band for emergency bulletins. There is a built in LED flashlight which always comes in handy, and a good sized solar panel for charging. It also lists a USB cell phone charger and audio line input for use as an MP3 speaker among its other functions. In a rubber casing for sturdiness, it is splash proof but not fully waterproof.
Costs $50 from EMS.
