Summary: Delivered as advertised so far. Weather station was a little tricky to get, but after a little practice with repositioning the antenna and the radio, it worked okay. I figured also that may be as much our location issue. I would have preferred more visibility with the dial pointer along the design of the FRX1 version, and also some kind of a protruding blocker for the flashlight button to prevent being pressed inadvertently when inside a tightly packed luggage.
Summary: I got this for Xmas last year. I usually keep it in my truck plugged in via a USB to 12v adapter for emergencies. I find the light lasts about three hours or it charges my cell about %15 from a %100 charge.
Summary: Bought this for our 72hr. emergency kit/backpack. Eton has varied the quality of their many turbine radios over the years, and some parts of this model feel less sturdy than other models, but I had played with it in the store before purchasing here on amazon so I knew what I was getting.
Summary: Love this one, as it has the phone charger. Have one without it that still works fine. Even bought one for the kids to put their supply kit. It sure beats having to go outside in bad weather to the car to charge things. Best idea ever.
Summary: This is exactly what I was after for travel and emegencys. Its easy to keep charged and the built in light has been quite usefull this winter. Being able to get constant weather updates with the recent storms is great. I have added a small battery powered speaker to the FRX2. They fit nicely into a pouch on my emergency pack.
