The Freeplay TUF is a rugged and splashproof AM, FM and SW radio, an LED flashlight, and an emergency cellphone charger. It has a solar panel and a crank so you'll never run out of power, and you'll never have to buy disposable batteries.
The Freeplay TUF radio promises assured listening, anytime, anywhere. This compact, robust radio boasts a rubberized body with recessed control knobs for impact resistance and comfort. Big on functionality, but small in size, the Companion is a radio, a flashlight and a cellphone charger that fits easily into your bag, your glove box or your drawer - ready when you need it, where you need it. The AM/FM/SW radio has an earphone socket for personal listening. The flashlight has an Ultra-Bright LED. The integrated cell phone charger means that you'll never be out of touch because of dead batteries.
Offering a choice of self-charge, solar and external recharge power options, the TUF delivers complete independence from wall power or disposable batteries while ensuring sustainable access to information and entertainment. Freeplay's patented self-charge technology means excellent reliability. A 1-minute wind gives you 20 minutes of radio listening at normal volume, or 30 minutes of light, and you can wind some more at any time for as much play time / shine time as you want. An LED charge level indicator tells you the best speed to wind.
In direct sunlight the TUF will charge itself and play continuously. The internal NiMH battery can be fully charged from either the solar panel or an external charging adapter (any standard mini-USB AC charger will do), to give 15 hours of play time (depending on volume), or 20 hours of shine time.
Designed as a companion for those who appreciate the security of a failsafe radio and who value independence from conventional power sources, the TUF is fun and convenient, anytime, anywhere.
The integrated solar panel charges or plays the TUF in sunlight. If you leave it on the kitchen windowsill you may never need to charge it any other way.
The self-charge system offers maximum dependability and convenience so that you're never let down by dead batteries. The winder can be cranked in both directions and the harder you crank, the more energy you create. A crank level LED indicates the optimum winding speed.
If you have a 'mini-USB' style AC adapter, you can charge your TUF from a wall outlet. We can supply these if you don't have one already.
You can also charge from a computer's USB port, if you have a 'USB-A-to-mini-B' cable, or you can charge from a car cigarette-lighter socket, if you have a mini-USB car charger. The leads are available on our site.
The radio covers AM, FM (MW) and SW frequencies and has an internal speaker and headphone socket.
The flashlight uses an Ultra-Bright LED to provide bright, efficient and dependable lighting for any situation. The LEDs don't burn out and have a 50,000 hour life.
