Freeplay Radios

Taura Radio


A compact, rugged radio specially designed for use in low-resource settings. Perfect for both individual and group listening.

Designed for individual, family and small group use, the Freeplay Taura is a compact, versatile, multi-rechargeable solar radio which has the audio performance of radios twice its size without sacrificing power.

With a front-facing LED reading light it provides a vital lighting function as well, so users never have to be in the dark again. Additionally, it also recharges cell phones.

It plays pre-recorded audio material from a USB flash drive and microSD card, and can record live audio for later playback on the SD card.

Using the headphone socket and the light, users can listen to the radio privately while reading, writing or performing a task at the same time. The extra large solar panel provides a reliable power source, ensuring power availability for lighting and listening anywhere any time.

Because the solar panel is not built into the radio, only the panel needs to be placed in the sun. This enables users to listen to and recharge the radio while they are in a comfortable environment.
