The Eton FR500 Solar Powered Radio is a compact radio that you can easily store in a safety kit or toss in your rucksack and take anywhere. It functions as an AM, FM, shortwave and NOAA weather radio. Additionally, it has a flashlight, an emergency beacon and an emergency siren. Plus, you can use it to charge your cell phone or MP3 player. This little wonder can be powered with the hand crank, or solely by the sun—solar panels make this a very “green” device. Of course, battery power and AC power are also options. You can buy this cool solar powered radio for a price of $50.
