Electrilite Flashlight

This cool flashlight doesn’t need batteries and will charge itself — and cell phones — with a quick hand crank. One minute of windup gives 30 minutes of light. Most other windup emergency products I have seen have are bulky radios with a little beam for lighting. This product combines three high powered LEDs with a radio that has a rather loud speaker. This is also the only hand crank flashlight/radio I am aware of that has a built-in adapter outlet to charge cell phones. Combine that with a really sleek looking design, and you have a great flashlight.

Whenever the local power goes out, this is the product I want to have around. It allows me to communicate with people by charging my cell phone and it allows me to hear news from the radio.
