We Would Not Have Survived CES Without This Gear

New gadgets take the spotlight at CES. And though we're occasionally blinded by the bright, shiny things, we know where our loyalties lie. Behind the barrage of posts and sprinting between booths, the real stars of the show are the tried and true bits of gear we're using behind the scenes. Particularly that from … » 1/11/13 3:10pm 1/11/13 3:10pm

Eton Power Turbine 2000: Crank Your Dead Phone Back to Life

I get lost constantly when I visit NYC, and keeping Google Maps open with Wi-Fi and GPS on spells near-instant death for my phone's battery. No power means no map means I'm SOL. But with the Eton Power Turbine 2000 in my bag, I could just hand-crank some juice into my phone. That means I won't have to worry about… » 12/21/12 4:00pm 12/21/12 4:00pm

Eton has made a name for itself with a line of emergency devices—like flashlights and radios—that don't require an outlet to stay powered.

This Emergency Light Will Help You Remain Stylish in Moments of Crisis

The Eton Road Torq is a simple device: toss it in your car (where you hopefully never have to use it). In the event you do need it, dig it out from under the seat, crank the dynamo for two minutes and use the 1 watt LED light for 15 minutes. Alternately, you can pop out the tripod legs, flip the flash light head open… » 4/13/11 5:40pm 4/13/11 5:40pm

If a Porsche Shacked Up With an iPod Dock, You'd Get the Eton P’9120

Can you imagine all the little Eton brothers and sisters sitting around the dinner table, when in walks the Eton P'9120? Its speakers and remote are different...not like mommy or daddy's at all. Awwwwkward. Anyway, the Eton P'9120 is a Porsche-designed Eton iPod dock packing an alarm clock and XM satellite radio… » 9/03/08 2:30pm 9/03/08 2:30pm

Grundig Eton Satellit 750 Shortwave Radio (Yes, Shortwave)

The Beef: I am not a shortwave enthusiast, by any means, but the industrial design, open for a literal interpretation on the industrial. It's got AM, FM, shortwave, longwave, SSB and aircraft band frequencies. There's a scan or manual input by 10-key. And check the analog gauge and yellow-glow back lighting. Very… » 1/05/08 8:30pm 1/05/08 8:30pm

Grundig Eton FR1000 Voicelink Survival Radio Is Gorgeous

Awesome: The Eton FR1000 Voicelink is maybe one of the most pornograpic survival radios I've ever seen, but functionally so. IT has AM/FM/NOAA Weather/2-Way GMRS Radio. And a Flashlight, siren, and Cellphone charger. It runs off of 4AAs, but has a hand crank. The design seems superfluous, but those cutouts actually… » 1/05/08 8:19pm 1/05/08 8:19pm
