Prepare for the worse and survive through the least with the NOAA Solar Weather Radio from La Crosse. It automatically activates when severe weather or other emergencies threaten your local area and gives you up-to-the-minute weather information. It receives all 7 NOAA weather band channels and gets standard AM/FM radio reception, too. It features a blue backlight that changes to red during alerts and a red alert LED light that flashes during alerts. It also features a high-intensity white LED flashlight, mini-USB port for charging a mobile device, telescoping antenna and 3 1/2 mm earphone jack. The weather radio is powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (included), a solar panel, or a hand crank. The battery can be recharged with the hand crank, solar panel or a mini-USB cable (not included).
