Need a weather alert radio that’s rugged(1), rechargeable, and reliable, not to mention solar-powered, splashproof(2), smartphone charging and with S.A.M.E. technology? The FRX5 is just the ticket. With a 2000mAh rechargeable lithium battery, super-duper solar panel and hand crank power generator, it’s an essential for every emergency kit— at home, at work, or in the great outdoors.

Listen up

Stay in tune and up to date with this AM/FM/NOAA weather band digital radio with display and alarm clock. If you want more than just the radio, there’s an AUX-input to play your own tunes. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.


The FRX5 powers up in four fabulous ways—via solar panel, hand crank, built-in rechargeable lithium battery, or alkaline batteries.


The super-sized solar panel will charge the battery fully in 5-6 hours. Looking for alternative sources of energy? Crank the hand turbine for four minutes and you’ll produce enough power for 10-15 minutes of music, news and weather or one minute of talk time. You can also use the micro-USB cable to charge the FRX5’ built-in rechargeable battery or pop in a couple of AAA batteries if you want to go old school.

Say hello

To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the 5V 2.1A USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. The FRX5 will fully charge most smartphones once and can also charge tablets.

Light the night

Shine the bright LED flashlight to find yourway. Use the glow-in-the-dark locator and illuminated buttons when you’re in the dark. And for big-time emergencies, flash the red emergency beacon.

Add some ambiance

The built-in, top mounted, dimmable ambient light on the top of the FRX5 provides just the right amount of light for the family to still enjoy a relaxing conversation or dinner even while the storm rages outside. Use it to light the tent on your next camping trip.

Weather or not

The FRX5 has an IPX4 splashproof rating(2) so neither sleet nor snow nor rain will hamper its performance. Ideal for camping trips or river expeditions.
