Product Details

The hand turbine rechargeable FRX3+ is a preparedness radio with AM/FM, all seven NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) weather band stations and the "Alert" system. When the "Alert" function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms. Spin the hand turbine for one minute to get 10-15 minutes of radio and flashlight use or place the FRX3+ in the sun for a passive charging option. The FRX3+ also serves as a renewable power source for your other critical devices because of its USB smartphone charger. Simply plug in your phone into the USB port and power will automatically "dump charge" to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. There are many products out there that have a USB cell phone charger, but most don't have the capability to charge a smartphone like the FRX3+. With a 2600 mAh rechargeable battery, the FRX3+ provides greater than 1/2 charge for most smartphones. This radio has a glow-in-the-dark locater so you can find it easily at night plus a LED flashlight and red flashing beacon for emergencies. Just sit back and let the sun do the work with the integrated solar panel. Be ready for anything.

Answer This Question

A:  I can’t tell, it’s sealed. It’s a single 3.7 V battery, 2600MaH and 9.62wh. I would imagine it is because it stays charged for a long time.

        Better than I thought
        I picked this up on a whim but it turned out way better than I thought. The radio reception is good and the speaker is quite clear. The radio can run 24/7 days on end before the battery needs to recharge. NOAA station comes in loud and clear as you would expect.

        -Smaller than I thought, but works! -The backside of where the aux, headphones, etc would've been better if they were a bit more visible. (The words) -The light is not the bright...a little dim. -Setting the alarm is a bit confusing. -Radio worked just fine, but the weatherband did not work at all. Just static. -It will take a long time to charge my phone, but expected and does the job.

        We had to test it out which makes since before a storm comes or power outages. We test our cell phones to see how long it would take to charge, about 30mins which is good considering you have no power and don't want to use your car. @heyitswhateva on IG We love solar power, and headphone jack as well. Will buy another for my mom .
