CES 2014: Etón Corporation Announces FRX4 S and FRX5 S Multi-Function, Multi-Powered Preparedness Devices

Etón Corporation (www.etoncorp.com), a leading creator of high-performance, eco-minded consumer products, announces two new additions to the company’s successful preparedness line. Referred to as the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of radios, Etón is introducing two new additions to its FRX line, the

FRX4 S and the FRX5 S. Featuring the latest in information technology and connectivity, both products feature four distinct sources of power – solar, hand crank, rechargeable lithium battery and alkaline batteries – enabling you to charge your smartphone or tablet, even when the power is out. Both products will be unveiled at Etón’s booth, #31247, in South Hall 3.

The FRX5 S is a durable, all-purpose preparedness radio that enables you to stay informed, entertained and powered up, even during an emergency. Featuring a large lithium battery that can be charged via a high-efficiency solar panel in six hours or built-in hand-crank that can provide four minutes of critical talk time or up to 20 minutes of essential news, the FRX5 S is more than an emergency radio. Packing a lot of power in a compact form, the FRX5 S, when at 100 percent charge, can fully charge most smartphones and also charges tablets, helping ensure that you can keep the fun going as well as connect with loved ones, even when you are away from an outlet. Other features include:

  • S.A.M.E. (Specific Area Messaging Encoding) emergency weather alert feature, simply enter your county code to receive weather advisories with flashing lights and audible alarms
  • AM/FM/Weather Band
  • NOAA alerts
  • LED flashlight
  • Red emergency beacon
  • Top-mounted ambient light with dimmer

Also debuting at CES 2014 is the FRX4 S, a rugged, smartphone-charging weather radio that ensures you never run out of power during an unexpected situation, or when enjoying the great outdoors. The internal 1000 mAh lithium battery can be charged via the built-in solar panel in four hours or via the featured Micro-USB port in two hours. Once fully charged, the FRX4 S can charge most smartphones to 50% via the power transfer facilitated by the built-in USB port. With Etón’s signature hand-crank feature, the FRX4 S provides critical power in an emergency situation – just one minute of cranking yields four minutes of talk time and up to 15 minutes of music, weather or news. Other features include:

  • AM/FM/Weather Band radio
  • NOAA alerts, which notify you when severe weather is affecting your area.
  • Long lasting LED flashlight
  • Red emergency beacon

“Our core mission for the past 30 years has been to prepare people for life’s unexpected situations; either at home or on-the-go, and to help people stay connected and informed when these events do occur,” said Esmail Hozour of Etón Corporation. “The FRX4 S and FRX5 S make it even more simple for people to stay connected, and we urge everyone to take the proper steps to prepare their loved ones for emergencies.”

The FRX4 S will be available in Q2 of 2014 for $79.99. The FRX5 S will also be available in Q2 of 2014 for $129.99. To learn more about Etón Corporation and its products, please visit www.etoncorp.com.
