Almost perfect

R. Hiestand, Amazon
4 November 2009
  • Summary: As an emergency radio, I find it important to have multiple power sources. This one works great. Also the ability to charge a cell phone is great. You do have to tell the company which phone you have and they'll send you the appropriate adapter. On the downside, with a 4.5 volt output, why not provide a USB charging cable? The freq display isn't lit with the light. There is no weather band.

Product long discontinued--may be battery issues

Paul S., Amazon
2 December 2008
  • Summary: On first unpacking mine, it would play for only a few seconds after cranking for two minutes. A call to Eton (800-872-2228) revealed that the model has been discontinued for 4-5 years, and the built-in NIMH battery pack had expired. They sent me a new battery with no hassle, and it works fine.

Many features, solid performance

M. D. Rorick, Amazon

  • Summary: Eton's FR350 emergency radio provides a solid solution for folks who want to stock their emergency kits with a waterproof, feature-packed unit. Given that I use mine primarily for listening to baseball while doing yardwork, I haven't gotten much use out of the shortwave receiver, siren, flashlight, and cell phone charger, but it's nice to know they're there.

  • Summary: This is a good radio but probably to fragile for children's use. More positives than negatives. Go for it!
  • Pros: Good sound quality, nice size, works mostly as advertised & convenient emergency features...good value.
  • Cons: Short play time for all the cranking, gears should be stronger in an emergency radio.

Kurzbewertung zu Etón FR350

Falko Elsholz, Dooyoo
31 July 2007
  • Summary: Das FR-350 ist ein handliches, kompktes Radio das durch seine Formschönheit überzeugt.Spritzwassergeschützt und durch den Powergenerator Autark ist es ein verlässlicher Reisebegleiter rund um den Globus.Die Extras wie die Sirene das Flashlight und die Taschenlampe sind allesamt gute Nothelfer.Auch besteht die möglichkeit sein Handy mit Hilfe der Kurbel soweit aufzuladen das eine SMS gesendet werden kann.Ich finde es sehr gut von jeglicher Stromquelle unabhängig zu...
