Eco Gadget for Earth Day

With Earth Day approaching, many green travelers are thinking more about responsible, sustainable consumption.

For sustainable travel products, Etón Corporation offers independent, self-powered radios with solar powered design and hand-crank technologies, requiring no plugs or batteries.

Etón Corporation’s sustainable products offer AM/FM radio reception, rechargeable Ni-MH battery pack, flashlight, siren, LED safety lights and a cell phone charger.

The company’s all-band radio, the Solarlink FR600, can be powered via solar power and includes the Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) feature.

S.A.M.E. , a system of six digit codes that are programmed into the radio, bring only the emergency data for your specific area, such as your county, during an alert broadcast.

The Solarlink FR500 and Solarlink FR360 can be powered by the sun and also charge MP3 players. While the smallest in the Etón lineup is the FR160 Microlink (above) which allows the user to tune into NOAA, FCC and EAS public alert systems.
