I get a ton and I mean a ton of questions from the audience about a good quality emergency radio. There are some really good ones and there are some that are total crap (for an example of total crap see my prior review of the Kaito Voyager).
So when Eton asked me to review the new Eton Scorpion I was quick to accept the opportunity, while skeptical of what I would receive. I am happy to report despite a few nit picks this is a great radio, check out the video below.
The Eton Scorpion has some Great Features Including
- AM/FM receiver with digital tuner
- NOAA weather band radio
- Built-in LED flashlight
- Large and efficient solar panel
- USB charger converts the Eton Scorpion multipurpose radio into a recharging station for cell phones and other devices (did not charge and iPod or iPhone for me)
- Audio line input lets you use the radio’s speaker with your music player
- Headphone jack allows you to listen without being head by others
- Battery charge indicator
- Rugged, splashproof body for outdoor use
- Includes a integrated bottle opener
- Aluminum carbiner for hanging the radio (not as rugged as I would like)
