Eton FR140
Eton's FR140 Microlink FM/AM/SW portable radio is also a torch and mobile phone charger. And you can wind it up or run it off solar power

Apparently the Eton FR140 Microlink portable FM/AM/SW radio is "ideal to have on hand while you're roughing it". Or so its manufacturer claims. Seems we'll have to put in a spot of outdoor activity when we get round to testing it, or maybe lend one to Ray Mears.

In the meantime, we can tell you it weighs just 200g, and can run on solar power or be powered by cranking the handle. It also doubles as an LED torch and mobile phone charger, handy for those trips in the desert when your mobile conks out.

You get AM, FM and SW reception, a rechargeable NiMh battery pack, a USB port and 3.5mm headphone socket. And you can have it in any colour as long as it's black. For £29.95.
