Weather X Bows Safety CE SKUs

Weather X is showing consumer electronics for safety and emergency during International CES at booth 10436.

Though designed and crafted for use in emergency situations, the products also double as affordable camping, traveling and at-home entertainment pieces, the company said.

The FR6817DT multifunction lantern is a lunch-box-sized portable emergency device for home, auto, workplace or storm shelter. The AM/FM radio is also equipped with the NOAA 7-channel weather band for alerting and monitoring of local, regional or national emergency or disaster situations. The AC/DC powered device also comes with an adapter for use in a 12V car lighter, the firm said.

The 12-LED lantern can be twisted and adjusted for targeted and maximum brightness. For mobile or handheld needs, a smaller five-LED rechargeable flashlight pops off of the lantern with single, push-button ease. The suggested retail price is $39.99.

Also equipped with an AM/FM radio, instant NOAA weatherband and an easy-to-see back-lit LCD display, the FR3807DP lantern radio is line-in MP3 ready, the company said.

Stereo speakers on the unit provide quality sound for music, news, alarm or radio features. The dual 12-LED lantern heads are positioned for maximum brightness and functionality, and the digital clock is an extra for convenient at-home use.

With three-way power, AC/DC, regular or rechargeable battery and car adapter, the little lantern radio retails for $24.99.

The tiniest radio from Weather X is a flashlight radio. The FR1807, retailing for $9.99, is a full-featured emergency device. The handheld flashlight comes with AM/FM radio and the NOAA weatherband emergency warning and news channels, and is powered by four AA batteries.

Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) provides local area emergency or disaster information and alerts. When either of the two new SAME radios from Weather X, the RWB8817DT or the CWB8817DT, is programmed, they become first alert and first information sites when emergencies happen.

Both of the radio units are full AM/FM radios with weather band and the SAME alert capabilities, both have onboard digital clocks and alarms. The portable RWB8817DT is NiMH battery powered with an AC adapter included, and retails for $39.99. The built-in five-LED light, nightlight, blinkers and flashlight capability make this a must have for home, auto, boat and camping. The stylized $39.99 desktop or bedside-table model CWB8817DT also comes with an emergency strobe light for home or office alerting situations.
