Best Emergency Radio, Flashlight, and Cell Phone Chargers

Here on the East Coast of the United States we were just slammed by Hurricane Irene, leaving four-million homes without power. The American Red Cross recommends everyone have an emergency radio. They feel so strongly about it that they have created their own line of radios with the Eton Corporation. Three of the things you desperately need in an emergency are light, information, and the ability to charge your cell phone to communicate. The Best Emergency Radios provide these three needs.
