The Sportsman Series Hand Crank Emergency Radio is a multi-function palm-sized FM Radio with a weather band feature, an 85 db emergency alarm, a cell charger and an LED light than runs on power created by the hand crank. Hand crank power ensures you always have enough juice when the power is not available. Keep an Emergency Radio in the emergency supply kit in the car and house, and one in the tent for use at the campsite. A switch on the front of the Emergency Radio lets you easily alternate between the FM radio and weather band features. The weather band radio connects to a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office. Stay informed about severe weather conditions in your area, or the forecast for the day when you are camping in the woods. A headphone jacks lets you listen to the news and weather without disturbing your family. This Emergency Radio can also charge basic cell phones, power an 85 decibel emergency alarm and works as a flashlight too. Hand cranking for just one minute will provide up to 30 minutes of light, 10 minutes of radio, and 3 minutes of emergency alarm. Crank for 3 minutes of cranking time can power a cell phone for 2-10 minutes.
