You never know when you’ll lose power, get stuck in a storm, or encounter an emergency. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, stay prepared, and have a practical device on hand to help you in times of need. This AM/FM/WB multi-function radio doubles as a flashlight that self-charges thanks to its built-in solar panels so you can guide your way out of a challenging scenario.
The Emergency Multi-Function Radio & Flashlight catches the NOAA weather broadcast 24 hours a day, imperative in a natural disaster. The NOAA broadcasts both warnings and post-event information for all types of hazards, including natural, environmental, and public safety (such as AMBER alerts or 911 Telephone outages) announcements. Not only can this flashlight radio charge from its large solar panel on top or with the included charging cable, but it also has a built-in hand crank so you can charge it without solar energy or batteries in the event of an emergency.
If you happen to have a low or dead phone battery, this device will charge USB devices with the onboard battery. Other vital features include its telescopic antenna, AM and FM radio, built-in speaker, and two easy-to-use dials.
The flashlight emits an LED light of 5000 lux and has a 100,000-hour lifespan. You will get a DC charging cable and a USB cable and adapter along with the flashlight radio. It’s small in size and tops out at 5″ x 2.5″ x 2″ so you can stow it in your backpack or suitcase when traveling.
One satisfied customer says of this multipurpose device, “We lost power for days during the worst of the storm, and this was our main lifeline to weather updates and tornado warnings. It required minimal effort to get started, was easy to work, and reliable. A necessary item in a hurricane or emergency kit.”
Typically $89, the Emergency Multi-Function Radio & Flashlight is on sale today for the affordable price of $28.99.
