The last thing anyone wants to worry about is equipment losing power during an emergency situation. With the Eton SOLARLINK FR360, users have not one or two options, but four options for powering the device as well as an assortment of gadgets.
Recommended by the American Red Cross, the FR360 “has a solar charger on the top of the handle,” according to Cooler Gadgets, “and it also has a hand-crank for charging the rechargeable Ni-MH battery pack.” An AC power cable — not included — provides the third power option, with the fourth option being three AAA batteries. No matter the situation, it is clear that Eton designed the device to be readily usable in lieu of other communication during crisis circumstances.
Besides several power options, the FR360 also packs several accessories such as a Swiss Army Knife, an AM/FM radio, seven National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather bands, a digital tuner, alarm clock, and even a built-in USB port.
