2) Best Zombie Emergency Radio: Eton American Red Cross FRX 3

 For the latest news on the zombie outbreak, you’ll need a radio that doesn’t run out of batteries. So long as you can turn a hand crank 360 degrees, you’ll always be in touch with the Eton American Red Cross FRX 3.

Here’s what Living Ready‘s Corey Graff had to say in his Eton FRX 3 review shortly before joining the legions on the undead:

The FRX3 is small, just 7.875″ high x 7″ wide x 3.5″ deep, but it’s packed with useful features, including a built in solar panel and rechargeable Ni-MH battery (3.6V/600mAh) for extended use when grocery stores aren’t stocking batteries. It also plays on 3 AAA batteries, for times when the sun isn’t out.
