Freeplay Companion solar & windup, torch & radio

If you need a small radio for travelling or emergency preparedness this is a really good radio for you!  Offering a choice of self-charge (winding), solar and external recharge (with USB charger) power options, the Freeplay Companion is a solar and wind up radio, a flashlight and a mobile phone charger that fits easily into your bag, your glove box or your drawer.

The AM/FM radio has an earphone socket for personal listening and the flashlight has 3 LEDs with optics optimised for a focused light. The integrated mobile phone charger means that you’ll never be out of touch because of dead batteries. A 1 minute wind gives you 20 mins of radio at normal volume or a half an hour of light - and if you place this great environmentally friendly torch/radio in direct sunlight it will solar charge itself and play continuously.

This is a great product if you live in an isolated or bush fire area so you can always have access to the basics - radio, light and mobile charging.
