About the EyeMax Weather Band

The Freeplay EyeMax Weather Band provides assured access to news, weather information and illumination whenever and wherever you need it. The vibrant yellow case with rubberized finish makes sure that the EyeMax WB is the first thing that you reach for in any emergency.

This robust and dependable radio, with integrated LED flashlight, offers a choice of self-charge, solar and external recharge power options. The EyeMax WB delivers complete independence from wall power or disposable batteries, ensuring sustainable access to vital information and the peace of mind that you’ll never be without power.

Freeplay’s patented self-charge technology means unparalleled playtime performance, and the compelling design makes the EyeMax WB a great everyday radio, as well as the perfect companion in emergencies.

The EyeMax WB will play for approximately an hour at normal volume per 1-minute wind, and can be rewound at any time for as much playtime as you want.

An LED charge level indicator tells you the best speed to wind. In direct sunlight the EyeMax will charge itself and play continuously – the internal Ni-MH battery can be fully charged from both the solar panel and an external charging adapter.

The EyeMax will give 25 hours of playtime, depending on volume, when fully charged and an earphone socket allows personal listening as required.

The EyeMax WB does not compromise on robustness and quality with mechanical components made from superior materials, specified to industrial standards for repeated use and long life. The 7 NOAA (USA) / MSC (Canadian) channels have a separate tuning mechanism and are activated at the push of a button, allowing you to switch quickly and easily between conventional programming and important weather information without re-tuning.

The EyeMax WB will provide clean dependable access to news, weather information and illumination anytime, anywhere.


  • Ideal as an everyday radio, and an essential part of any preparedness kit. Always ready to provide vital information and illumination in any emergency.

  • Bright yellow case and rubberized finish make the EyeMax WB easy to find and comfortable to grip.

  • Green energy – a sustainable product that’s built to last. The power mechanism is tested to 500,000 input cycles, and the internal batteries are tested up to 10,000 self-charge cycles – or over 5000 listening hours.

  • The EyeMax offers a real alternative to grid electricity or fossil fuels, so you can feel cleaner about your nature experience. Never worry about buying, carrying or disposing of batteries again.

  • When your batteries run out and you need to wind for power, the Freeplay self-charge mechanism converts over 74% of your kinetic energy into stored electricity.

  • Self-charge while playing anytime to top up the power – never miss the end of that song, the end of the game or that last item in the news report.

  • The integrated LED is a vital source of light in blackouts, or just when checking your alarm clock at your bedside in the morning.

  • Freeplay’s highly efficient and powerful self-charge system provides a conditioning charge to the internal batteries – which means that the EyeMax WB will always work, even after periods of long storage when other battery operated products will fail.
