We’re total fanboys when it comes to Etón’s handy solar-powered radios so we were stoked when they announced the newest addition to their lineup – the Raptor. The nifty solar-powered device can be used as both a USB charger for small devices and a radio and weighs just over 11 ounces. It also features an LED flashlight, audio line and DC input, battery charge indicator and a bottle opener (nice).

The Raptor has an 1800mAh rechargeable Lithium Ion battery hooked up to a high-efficiency monocrystal solar panel. “Packed with features, the Raptor houses the ABCs of an outdoor adventure tool; altimeter, barometer and compass,” writes Etón in its release.

“The Etón brand continues to advance new ways to harness the power of the sun, and the Raptor is another example of this innovation,” says Esmail Amid-Hozour, CEO of Etón Corporation. “We’ve incorporated a multitude of novel features into the Raptor and it will no doubt become a must-have device for anyone exploring the outdoors.”
