When dealing with the undead, knowledge is power. Stay up to date on the latest news and reported outbreaks with an Eton FR300 Emergency Crank Radio ($50+). Keep your cell phone charged, listen to AM/FM radio stations, NOAA stations (weather and news updates), and even TV-VHF stations so you can hear what’s happening on TV as well. The FR300 also features a 3-LED flashlight, which also acts as a strobe and emergency light. The hand crank allows you to charge up the rechargeable Ni-MH battery, or you can run the unit off 3 AA batteries. Check out the FR400 for a water-resistant radio.
