Listen up

Stay in tune and up to date with this AM/FM/NOAA weather band digital radio for precise tuning and optimal reception. Get vital information—from weather forecasts and alerts to other emergency messages—when and where you need it. If you want more than just the radio, there’s an AUX-input to play your own tunes. And, when you want to listen alone, just plug in your favourite headphones.

No batteries required

The solar panel harnesses the sun’s energy to power your Scorpion and thanks to the battery charge indicator you’ll always know how much power you have left. You can also use the hand crank to self-power radio broadcasts, the LED flashlight and even a cell phone. DC input power adapter sold separately.

Say hello

To charge your smartphone, simply plug it into the USB port and begin turning the hand crank. Power will be transferred from the Scorpion to your smartphone. Great for emergency calls or texts on the trail or in a storm.

Take it with you

The Scorpion’s rugged exterior is designed to handle extreme outdoor adventures and emergency situations. Clip it on your pack with the built-in carabiner and don’t worry about it getting wet—it’s splashproof (IPX-4).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Radio This is not worth the money, it will not run for more than 5minuts even when the son is shining. The previous wind up radio I had has been has been kicked around building sites for the last 4 years it would run on mains the dc lead came with the radio not as an extra. PS the previous patio cost £17.
