Hand-Crank Radio with Solar Panel - Gardening
This product is no longer available. Click here for a similar product.

This is a triple-threat AM/FM radio that has an integral rechargeable battery.

Normally kept charged by a solar cell on the top of the radio, the radio also has an internal dynamo that is operated by a small fold-out hand crank. One minute of cranking will give you about 15 minutes of listening time; however, this should almost never be necessary, since the solar panel will fully charge the battery while it is playing, giving at least 7 hours of reserve power for after sundown.

Actually, it charges in incandescent light as well as natural light. Of course, the radio can also be used with AA batteries (not included) but they are really not necessary unless you intend to spend a lot of time in an unlit bomb shelter. A very compact 6" x 2-3/4" x 1-1/2".

We stocked this radio during the Y2K run-up and brought it back by popular demand after numerous people (including employees) mentioned its value during the major blackout in the Northeast in August 2003. There may be more blackouts....
