The Hand Crank Emergency Radio is truly a gadget for emergencies. This device will power up and let you listen to radio stations and weather reports even when there’s no power available, whether your house has a blackout, your radio’s batteries are drained, or both. Just use a little elbow grease and your radio is airing the broadcast again. World War III will come eventually, so maybe it’s best if you had one of these before it’s too late.
The Hand Crank Emergency Radio comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery as its primary power source. You can also put in AAA batteries in case you can’t charge the device. As a backup, it also has a built-in solar panel that can help you run it for up to five hours.
It includes a digital display and tuner, which means you can easily jump between FM, AM and NOAA broadcasts. This radio comes with a 5V 2.1A USB output that can be used as a power-bank for charging your smartphone or tablet, should the need arise.
If you’re a conspiracy theorist or a die-hard apocalyptic maniac, then you should really consider getting one. Who knows, maybe there will actually be zombies and vampires out there at some point
