19 March 2015
  • Summary: It does not recharge the mobile phone directly. It indirectly recharges it thru the phone bank. I want to see this changed in the future. I want this device to be able to directly charge the mobile phone.

Ok for weather alerts, but dumb design flaw

VixensMomma, Amazon
14 March 2015
  • Summary: The design needs work: it's too easy to unknowingly hit the 'on' button for the flashlight and completely drain the charge without even knowing it.

  • Summary: I bought two Eton emergency radios, one for home, one for work. We are very careful with our things (I have some old boom boxes from back in the day that still work pretty well)! The home radio only picks up one FM station, and can't be tuned.

I own one and find it useful in the face of possible power outages

  • Summary: I own one and find it useful in the face of possible power outages. Its alternative method of charging the battery work well and the radio reception is good. I decided to give one to each of my grandsons, 8 and 5 years old.

Too Expensive, Terrible Solar/Hand Crank Chargers, Non-Functional USB Output & NO Weather Channels In These Tropics

Andrew Falconar, Amazon
3 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought one of these FRX2 radios for testing in remote areas of Colombia (South America) because of having the novelty of multiple charging options. In reality, however, the solar panel is minute (probably about 0.05 watts?

Worst piece of junk.

Vinyltown, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: I have collected many radios over the years, and this is one of the worst ones I have ever used. The antenna is too small to receive any weather broadcasts, while other radios I have bring in 3 or 4 weather channels where I am. Lousy AM and FM tuning. It went back.

2 December 2014
