Sony ICF-B01 Emergency Radio

Because it's never too early to prepare for a crisis, the ICF-B01 radio ensures you'll never be caught without important emergency tools such as a flashlight and AM/FM radio. The radio is battery powered, but if disaster strikes, one minute of cranking the built-in power generator provides up to 1 hour of AM radio, 40 minutes of FM radio or 15 minutes of light. Since the radio operates on 2 "AAA" batteries, it's also perfect for everyday activities like boating, camping or a day at the beach. The ICF-B01 emergency radio also contains an LED light, which comes in handy at night.

AM / FM Radio with Resistant Tuning
allows the station to be tuned before it’s put away for emergency use and will stay in that position until it's changed by the user.

Built-in Power Generator
with 1 minute of cranking at the optimum rate indicated by the green LED charging indicator, the user is provided with up to: 60 minutes of AM radio, 40 minutes of FM radio or 15 minutes of light.

Power Source Choice
the unit can be operated using the Power Generator or 2 “AAA” batteries (not supplied).

Two Light Settings
allows you to choose between using a flashlight or a softlight which adds to the functionality of the radio. In the flashlight setting, the LED provides a bright light that can be used to illuminate an object or help guide the user when walking. The softlight is a low level light that adds illumination to a small area acting as a night light or comfort light when a group of children or adults are gathered around it.

Charging Indicator
when the Power Generator handle is turned at the optimum rotating speed (in either direction), the green LED Charging Indicator will illuminate. Continuing to turn the handle at this same rate for approximately one minute [120 rotations] will provide a full charge.

Bright Orange Color
makes it easy to locate.

Water Resistant
Unit is designed to be splash resistant for all weather operation. It cannot, however, be immersed in water.

Compact size
with a total cubic volume of 34 cubic inches it can easily fit in an emergency kit, kitchen drawer or the glove box in your car, ready when you need it.
