FRX4 - European Version
The Rugged, Smartphone Charging Shortwave Radio With Solar Power
Ready For Anything
This rugged, rechargeable shortwave radio is designed to keep you in the know, on the go—rain or shine. With a 1000mAh rechargeable lithium battery, large solar panel and hand turbine power generator, you’ll never be out of touch or in the dark again.
This FM/Shortwave radio keeps you in tune and up to date. The digital tuner and back-lit display make it easy to find and see your stations. In the mood to listen alone? Just plug in your favorite headphones. Note: This is a European version and does not receive North American AM band.
The FRX4 powers up in four fabulous ways—via solar panel, hand crank, built-in rechargeable lithium battery, or three alkaline batteries.
All Juiced Up
Put the FRX4 in the sun and the built-in solar panel will charge the battery fully in 5-6 hours. 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 fully charge the FRX4 built-in rechargeable battery in two hours or less.
To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the 5V 1A USB port. Power will automatically “dump charge” to your phone, just like plugging into the wall. Fully charged the FRX4 will provide a 50% charge to most smartphones.
With its super bright LED flashlight with dimmer, red emergency beacon and the cool glow-in-the-dark locator, the FRX4 will light up the night.
Weather Or Not
The FRX4 has an IPX4 splashproof rating so neither sleet, nor snow, nor rain will hamper its performance. Ideal for camping trips or outdoor adventures.

Ok for FM usage in a power outage
The first one was defective and they replaced it without question. However, this is a European radio so no AM band. The SW band requires a lot of key presses but if you hold down the tune button it will scan.
