Eton FRX5-BT
Self-Powered Weather Alert Radio with Bluetooth


Harness Nature's Power

The FRX5 BT is a rugged, rechargeable, and reliable weather alert radio that features solar powered charging and Bluetooth® technology. Stream your favorite music anywhere while charging your device with the built-in rechargeable lithium battery. Easily recharge the battery through solar power or with the hand crank power generator. 


When the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast NOAA emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms. Plus, the FRX5-BT also features S.A.M.E. technology (Specific Area Message Encoding) for extra alert power. Just enter your S.A.M.E. county code and if there’s a warning, watch or advisory you’ll see it—with red, orange or green lights—and hear about it, too. You can set up to 25 locations so you’ll be safe, wherever you are.


The FRX5-BT powers up in three fabulous ways—via solar panel, hand crank and built-in rechargeable lithium battery.


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, it's Bluetooth® ready and has AUXin to play your own tunes or listen to your favorite podcast. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favorite headphones.


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-BT’s built-in rechargeable battery.


To charge your smartphone or tablet, simply plug it into the 5V 2.1A USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your device, just like plugging into the wall. The FRX5-BT will provide >50% charge to most smartphones.


Shine the bright LED flashlight to find your way. 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.


The built-in, top mounted, dimmable ambient light on the top of the FRX5-BT 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.


The FRX5-BT has an IPX4 splashproof rating2 so neither sleet nor snow nor rain will hamper its performance. Ideal for camping trips or river expeditions.
