Eton revamps FR Series all-weather emergency radios


Eton’s FR series of radios have been around some time, but since we last featured them, the radios have had a mini-makeover

The basics are still intact – AM/FM/SW reception, a built-in torch, water resistance and powered by a choice of rechargeable battery, AA battery, AC adaptor or dynamo hand crank. What has now been added is a built-in LED light source (for ease of being spotted) and on the FR 250 and FR 350, a mobile phone charger, siren signal and red flashing LED light.

Pricing for the basic FR 200 remains at £24.95, with the FR 250 coming in at £34.95 and the FR350 at £39.99.
