As we live in earthquake-prone country (California) I'm always on the lookout for new gadgets for our state-of-the-art earthquake kit.
The AM/FM solar radio from Brando is perfect since it doesn't even need batteries, which can lose power over years. Just stick it in the sun during the day and the internal battery gets charged via the solar plate .The radio can be powered by a AAA cell also. The frequency range is AM: 88-108 MHz and FM: 530-1600 KHz.
A mere $15 at Brando.
