The name ‘Earl’ may bring to mind any number of things, people, or just simply banjo music. What probabally doesn’t pop into your head though is high-tech wilderness gear. Meet Earl; a rugged, well thought out, survival tablet with everything any person more than 100 yards away from an an automobile could ever want.
Built for abuse and inspired by the creator’s out-door loving greyhound; Earl was designed to be a reliable, back-country, trail and wilderness companion that could survive years of water, mud, wear and tear, just like its old GPS and walkie-talkie predecessors. Earl updates old wilderness tech with a low-consumption e-ink screen and a battery that can fully charge in 5 hours of direct sunlight.
If a solar powered survival tool wasn’t cool enough, Earl proves it’s the boy-scout of tablets by being crammed full of awesome features. A two-way radio, AM/FM/SW/LW tuner & recorder, GPS, Barometer, are just the tip of the iceberg in this glove friendly, shock/dust/mud/water-proof tablet.
