Your smartphone isn’t the only way to stay connected to the world of music, sports and news. Even before TVs, people had a fun, portable, convenient way of staying tuned in their interests: radio.

It turns out that video didn’t completely kill the radio star, because the medium is making a comeback. And you can tune into a world of music and more with the Eton Elite Traveler. This compact radio is an Amazon’s Choice product, but we’ve got a better price at $49.99!

Carry the world in your pocket with this little radio

Radio isn’t just for the car! This little travel radio can tune into AM, FM, longwave or shortwave bands using manual or digital tuning. That means you can get that retro feel, or enjoy modern convenience when you search for a station to please your ears.

Once you find a station you like, the Elite Traveler can remember it for you, so you don’t have to search for it again. That’s probably for the best, because we enjoy more than 15,000 radio stations in the United States alone, and this radio offers international coverage.

You can browse stations automatically, manually or by memory. And you can enhance AM signals using the internal antenna by rotating the radio. You can even fine-tune your FM and SW reception by extending the radio’s telescoping antenna. And as you search, you can see FM station call letters, music styles, song titles, artists and more!

The Traveler might be one of the coolest pieces of camping gear you can get. Not only is it totally battery-powered (or use a 6V AC adapter, purchased separately). It also works as an alarm clock, sleep timer, snooze light or international clock with every time zone saved. And it comes with its own leather sleeve.

Save on the Eton Elite Traveler Radio

It may be Amazon’s Choice, but Cult of Mac readers get a better price. Amazon currently wants $69.99. But for a limited time, you can get the Eton Elite Traveler Radio & Custom Leather Carry Cover for only $49.99 (regularly $99).

Prices subject to change.
