Backed by the National Weather Service, Kaito built its radio to make sure you always have access to stations and weather alerts when you need it most. Forget to plug in the rechargeable battery? You can still use the radio thanks to the adjustable solar panel on top of the Kaito, as well as the hand crank on the side of the unit. It even includes a USB port that lets you use the radio as a charging source for your devices. A built-in LED flashlight provides extra light should you need it.

Whether you’re at home, at a camp site or on the road, you’ll always know what’s happening with Kaito’s emergency radio. With a simple knob, you can quickly tune in to seven different NOAA stations and get the latest updates when you set the radio to NOAA Alert mode. The durable design holds up in the snow and inclement weather too, and will last you for years.

The Kaito 5-Way Powered Emergency Radio has a 4.6-star rating (out of five stars) from more than 11,000 reviewers online. Choose from five different colors.

When you jump on this deal, you’re saving yourself $30 on the original retail price of $79.99, but like most Amazon deals, this discount likely won’t last much longer before climbing back up to its original price tag. Shop the Kaito Emergency Radio here.
