I saw a good review at TUAW about the Eaton FRX3 emergency radio. Eaton makes a number of fantastic emergency preparedness products many of which are Red Cross approved. Of course, they are loved by outdoorsmen and geek alike as they have features like solar or hand crank charging, AM, FM, and NOAA weather radio bands, built in flashlights, alarm clocks, and of course, usb connections for charging you iDevices.
Whether you are a camper, a hiker or you simply live in hurricane prone areas like we do here in Houston, no home should be without a device like this. And if you own an iPhone, you might as well get one that can keep that running during troubled times as well. I mean, when the power is our and you have no running water or air conditioning, at least you can keep yourself occupied playing angry birds! And at only $59.99 it won't break the bank either.
