Freeplay FPR1

You have never owned a radio like this before. The power source for this radio is you! The battery free Baygen Freeplay FPR-1A radio is the world's first radio to incorporate the ingenious Baylis generator which combines the latest in radio technology with the centuries old clockwork spring. Winding the crank for only 20 seconds provides 30 minutes of listening. This has to be the most ecologically friendly radio ever produced. Weighing less than 7 pounds, it is a great camping or emergency radio. Here is assured radio performance, day or night without the worry (and expense!) of batteries. FPR-1A coverage includes AM from 520 to 1600 kHz, FM from 88 to 108 MHz and shortwave from 3000 to 12000 kHz. 15.75 x 12.5 x 8 inches 6.75 Lbs. (400x315x203mm 3 kg).

The built-in 3.5 inch speaker provides full sound. May also be operated from a 3 to 9 VDC power source (see optional FPA3 AC Adapter). Six month limited warranty. Made in South Africa.
