The Motorola MWR800 portable weather radio is a reliable tool to provide you and your family with peace of mind and the information they need to stay safe. Be prepared for emergencies with broadcasts from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and EC (Environmental Canada) weather channels. Weather has been more unpredictable than ever with blizzards, thunderstorms, and floods occurring more frequently and knocking out power. Be prepared for power outages with the built-in LED flashlight and the power bank that allows you to charge your portable devices like cell phones. This portable AM/FM radio has a built-in rechargeable battery with the ability to recharge with via solar panel or hand crank. You can also use 3 AAA backup batteries (not included). It makes sense to be prepared. The Motorola MWR800 provides you an emergency power source and information at your fingertips wherever you are when disaster hits.
