This is the only solar powered radio we've found with Weatherband features. This combo set includes the EyeMax AM / FM Weatherband Crank/Solar Emergency Radio With Sherpa LED Flashlight. This self-powered radio offers AM, FM, and National Weather Service broadcasts. The radio covers seven National Oceanic & Atmospheric Association (NOAA) broadcast channels. The integrated solar panel will generate enough power to operate the radio and charge the battery simultaneously when exposed to strong sunlight. When you aren't using it, the radio will charge itself up if left in the sun. In addition to being able to power itself with the solar panel, just 30 seconds of winding the hand crank on the back of the radio will provide about 35 minutes of power.

Having just spent the the early part of the summer fishing with my dad in Canada, we got hit on the St. John river with more than just fishing - a giant thunderstorm with really high winds. Boating and wind and rain just don't mix that well, and thankfully we had a set of ponchos to make it through the roughest heavy rain. You'll need to have a good poncho you can sit on and wrap around you so the wind won't take it, but if you are able to sit or just wait it out with the poncho wrapped around you, you should be fine.

If you live in a place that at least occasionally experiences bad weather, you'll want a Weather X NOAA Weatherband Radio with Alert and digital tune AM/FM and television audio (Channel 2-13). You'll always be prepared with a 7-channel NOAA Weatherband, a built-in clock, and flashlight. Plus, no matter what the circumstances are with power supply, you'll be able to tune in because this unit is DC-powered by rechargeable batteries (included), and has two ways to recharge the batteries. You can use the heavy duty dynamo motor for power generation or you can use an AC charge using the built-in retractable AC plug. There's even an over-charge protection circuit built in.

We've recently been experiencing power outages due to thunder storms and winds, and when storm emergencies hit, it's good to have electricity, light, and a radio. It's even better to have all those things together in one place and easy to find when the lights go out. Black & Decker gives you all the emergency essentials in one handy StormStation (love the name).
This portable unit is equipped with a weather radio, power inverter, and detachable flashlight. When the power goes out, the StormStation's "Find Me" light automatically turns on. Use its 25-watt inverter to power small, essential appliances, like a clock or a cordless phone to keep lines of communication open. Or charge your cell phone via the 12-volt recharging port.
- Rechargeable emergency power source/radio/light with locator light that goes on when power goes off
- 25-watt power source for low-wattage devices; AM/FM/TV audio/weather-band radio; detachable flashlight
- Rugged plastic case with soft rubber 3-position carrying handle
- Includes 12-volt charger
- 12.3 pounds; 2-year warranty

Aqua Blox is the industry standard for survival kits. Do not settle for the packets of water. These 8.45 FL. OZ boxes contain twice the water as the outdated water pouches. They also include a straw which prevents wasting precious water. They have a 5 year shelf life and are approved by the U.S. Coast Guard..

If you're looking for the ultimate emergency device, we think the SteriPen Adventurer is a great choice for home and travel. Lighter, faster and half the size of its predecessor (the Classic), the new SteriPEN Adventurer uses UV light to sterilize water in under a minute. This will help to ensure safe drinking water where ever you are and also make having a large supply of water not as necessary (though for hurricane season we recommend it.)
Simply fill a 16 oz. or 32 oz. glass, plastic, ceramic or metal container with clear water, push the activation button once for 32 oz. or twice for 16 oz., dip it in the container and stir slightly to agitate the water. Ultraviolet light is invisible to the human eye, but a visible blue light indicates that the SteriPen Adventurer is working and shuts off as soon as a full dose has been delivered. The SteriPen Adventurer purifies 16 oz. of water in 48 seconds and 32 oz. in 90 seconds! The UV light breaks down the DNA of viruses, bacteria and cysts, rendering them harmless. Because the penetration of UV light can be limited by discoloration, solids and debris, it is important that clear, unfrozen water be used.

You'll need water most of all in an emergency. We like the STORE-and-TOTE Emergency Drinking Water pouches. The 4 oz. size provides important portion control for groups or individuals in an extended emergency. A box of 52 pouches provides a 3-day minimum supply for up to 8 people. Some experts recommend storing up to 1 gallon per person per day for drinking, cooking, and sanitation, but if you can't afford that much, at least get a 3 day supply.

We recently covered this radio in black, but we like the red version much better. Why? You can actually find this radio in low light due to the color. The FR200 features many of the same features as it's more expensive cousins including hand crank power, am/fm/shortwave radio and an LED flashlight.
