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 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.

We're not sure where in the US to find the Porsche designed radio from Eton, but we really like it. This emergency crank radio features a radio tuner that can receive shortwave bands and am/fm radio, red flashing emergency LED, a white LED flashlight, emergency siren, and a cell phone charger. Everything is powered via rechargeable batteries that can also be recharged from the hand crank. All this and a cast aluminum body, and priced at $200? Well, that's pricey, but then again it's a Porsche.

This is currently the top selling weather radio just about anywhere online and offline. Why? It really has the features you need for weather and alerts specific to your area.The Midland WR-100C Weather All Hazards and Civil Emergency Alert Monitor has S.A.M.E. area technology that allows for alerts specific to your area so you won't be listening to something that doesn't affect you or you miss something that does. The single-speaker radio offers 25 programmable county codes, access to 7 NOAA weather channels, time/date and alarm functions, and a choice of voice, siren, or tone alert.
In the event of special warning broadcasts, the monitor is automatically activated along with a loud tone, an LED light and an alert message on its 8-character LCD. Emergency weather bulletins include alerts about tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, ice/snow storms, and other severe weather. Other emergencies might include Amber alerts, explosions, fires, or hazardous chemical spills.
The radio uses the supplied AC power adapter or 3 AA backup batteries (not included). Batteries should give you approximately 24 hours of continuous operation; the clock will run for at least 10 days on batteries when the monitor is turned off (using the monitor on/off control).

We personally have this radio in black, though you can get it in red and orange as well. This sturdy AM/FM radio is built to handle the elements, as well as a power outage, thanks to a hand crank that can be used to recharge the built-in battery. Thanks to the FR300's reception of NOAA weather radio, emergency information is always close at hand when you need it, making this radio a must-have for anyone who wants to be as ready as possible for unforeseen events and bad weather.
