USB charging does NOT work with iPhone


This unit seems to function fine as a flashlight and radio. But I really bought it hoping it would allow me to charge my iPhone 3GS if the power went out. I just tried plugging it into my phone and cranking the charger... and immediately got a message...

Compact & powerful, it is a must have!


This is a great fit for camping or in the car. It will plug into my phone (though I haven\'t timed it to see how long it takes to charge it yet). We\'ve used it for a camping weekend, and loved it. I wish the light was a little brighter, but that is...

Eton Microlink FR160 AM/FM.Weather Radio and Phone Charger

A great companion to us during weather emergencies!


My husband Bill and I moved to North Carolina on April 1, 2011. In that time, we have weathered a tornado, an earthquake, several thunderstorms, and a hurricane. When severe weather strikes, our power usually goes out, sometimes for hours. ...

A Real Lifesaver


This is such a good product with so many features. I feel this is a must have for any home or car or survival kit. It provides communication (including weather bands), light and will charge your cell phone. No wonder it is endorsed by the Red Cross. I...

Eton FR160 Weather Emergency Radio: Great For Plan B


Living outside the DC area, I am greatly comforted in knowing that if there's ever a nuclear war, I'll never know about it. Some may consider that to be a bit negative, but for some reason I find it a slightly amusing if not morbid approach to living...
