Introducing the Kaito KA500 Voyager, a portable receiver designed for both daily use & emergency preparedness applications. As an emergency preparedness tool, it offers different methods to power up including an AC/DC adapter (sold separately), a built-in rechargeable battery that can be charged by the optional AC adapter, hand cranking or a USB power source, and the patented flip-up 180-degree adjustable solar panel provides power for the radio even when no battery is installed. With its revolutionary design and versatile functions, it’s not only an ideal choice of a radio for everyday use around the house, but also an indispensable tool for emergency preparedness purposes, traveling, camping, backpacking and other outdoor activities.
The KA500 has a wide range of band reception including AM, FM, shortwave and NOAA weather stations. The 7-weather channels are pre-programmed and numbered from 1-7, you can easily and conveniently tune into the stations by turning the tuning knob, no more guess work involved. Plus if the radio is set at the “Alert” mode, it will be automatically activated when it receives the alert signals from the NOAA weather stations.
Comprehensive broadcast coverage includes AM, FM, SW1 and SW2, plus all 7 pre-programmed national weather channels with real-time alert. Don't be fooled by other so-called "weather radios", chances are they are not certified by National Weather Service or authorized to use its Logo as the Kaito Voyager KA500 is.
6-way powered emergency radio
Life is full of uncertainties, emergencies often occur unexpectedly and natural disasters sometimes strike without any warning signs. The least we could do is to be prepared by having important emergency supplies readily available, making a plan for yourself and your loved ones, and being informed. Such simple and easy actions will make all the difference should our worst fear be realized. With Kaito's revolutionary Voyager KA500 6-way powered, multi-functional emergency radio, together we can make a difference!
Over the years, Kaito has proudly supplied millions of radios and lanterns to the State Department, the United States Army, the United Nations, American Red Cross and other government agencies and NGOs for their humanitarian relief efforts. It's hard to believe, but often times a radio is the only way to connect with the outside world in some parts of the globe, and radio broadcasting has become an important and effective tool helping the US and its allies build strong relationship with the locals and educate them to stand up against conflicts and extremism, which in return makes our troops and diplomats safer and more successful in their missions.
