About Eton

The Eton American Red Cross Axis Self-Powered Safety Hub has everything you'd need in the event of an emergency, power outage or natural disaster. It has a variety of features that will help you whether you're on the road or at home without any power. It can be hand cranked or plugged into a laptop or AC adapter via mini-USB (included) or powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included).

The Axis is equipped with an AM/FM/NOAA weather radio. You can tune into a variety of AM/FM stations and also 7 preset NOAA weather channels. To access these stations select the AM, FM or WB (weather band) channel 1-7 with the band selector switch. For best reception, make sure to fully extend the telescopic antenna for FM or WB stations. Scroll through your desired stations with the easy-to-use TUNE knob.

After tuning into your local weather channel, the radio can be set to the Alert function by pressing the ALERT button below and to the right of the LCD screen. When pressed, the radio turns the sound off, but continues to monitor the NOAA station of your region. The Alert text will be flashing on the screen when this function is on. If Alert broadcasts on this frequency, the sound turns back on automatically and you will hear the Alert message broadcast. To turn this function off, press ALERT again and you'll notice it is gone from the screen.

The rechargeable NI-MH (nickel-metal hydride) battery is in the rear battery compartment and can be charged a few different ways. Plug the battery into the socket adjacent to it, press the DYN button (front right side of the radio) and then press the POWER button. You can also charge via USB located under the DC-IN on the back of the radio. Plug into any computer or charging device and press DYN, then POWER.

The Axis has a low voltage protection circuit to deter the battery from dropping too low in voltage for cell phone charging. If the battery symbol shows three bars, it is capable of supporting a cell phone. When it begins blinking, charging will stop and a recharge of the Axis' battery is required to resume cell phone charging.
