Our take on the Etón Rover
The compact Etón Rover emergency radio is small enough to fit just about anywhere, such as your car's glove compartment, a spare kitchen drawer, backpack, or suitcase. Its powerful tuner pulls in the broadcasts to keep you informed in an emergency. And unlike standard battery-powered radios and flashlights, the Rover's ready when you need it.
No power? No problem!
And no need to fumble in the dark for replacement batteries. A lightweight aluminum hand crank ensures you can always power up the built-in rechargeable battery pack. And when the power's on, you can use the included USB cable to charge your Rover from your computer or other USB power source. You can also charge your cell phone through the Rover's USB port, ensuring you can make an emergency call whenever you need to.
AM, FM and weather bands
The Rover's analog tuner pulls in both AM and FM stations. And it receives all seven NOAA weather bands, so you can monitor changing atmospheric conditions. 3-LEDs provide plenty of light when you need it.
From the review Etón Rover Emergency Radio Cranking out power, light, and sound
"The Etón Rover self-powered radio is an amazingly versatile and handy device. Intuitively, I knew the hand-cranked dynamo, the weather bands, the LED lights, and the cell phone charger would be good for emergencies. But actually using the Rover during such an emergency was something entirely different."
