In light of the recent tornadoes sweeping through the South and Midwest, this month’s giveaway seems especially appropriate. We found ourselves in the basement hallways of the school where we live several times on Friday – and often wishing we had more information!
The Rover from the American Red Cross and Eton is a flashlight, weather radio, and device-charger all in one! It has a battery that can be charged with a mini-USB port when you have power or by hand when you don’t.
One minute of hand cranking can provide 15 minutes or light or radio usage. The Rover has a USB port where you can charge your cell phone, smart phone, or laptop for a few minutes of usage during an outage. Sounds to me like a great way to use up excess child energy during a storm.
I wish we had had a Rover when we lost our power for 5 1/2 days last April!
Eton has provided us with one Rover to give away to our readers. To enter, just answer this question in the comments:
When could you have used a Rover?
