When emergencies or outdoor adventures take you off the grid, you need a device that can meet your multiple needs. The Eton Scorpion is a compact unit that you can easily store in a safety kit or toss in your rucksack and take with you anywhere you go. With the rugged exterior skin and aluminum carabiner, the Scorpion is designed to endure any extreme outdoor conditions or emergency situation you may find yourself in the midst of.
The emergency essential features include a crank powered handle, built-in LED flashlight and USB/cell phone charger. The high-quality digital AM/FM tuner provides you with news, entertainment and public service announcements. Not only that, but it also integrates a NOAA Weather Band receiver that brings you weather forecasts, alerts and other emergency messages - information vital to backpackers and travelers.
In addition to the crank powered handle, the Scorpion also includes a powerful solar panel with a battery charge indicator to ensure that you're always aware of the amount of power you have remaining. The digital tuner/display allows for precise tuning and optimal reception everywhere you go. And if that wasn't enough, there is an AUX-in for the pure enjoyment of music from an iPod or mp3. It's perfect for any room in your house or any outdoor venue.
