A hand cranked emergency radio should be a requirement in all camping gear and emergency kits for use during critical situations. The crank radio, or otherwise known as dynamo radio, is a device that will keep you informed and prepared for breaking news and weather updates during emergency situations as well as keeping you company at the beach or camping.
An emergency hand crank radio can offer you various means of communication, charge mobile devices and other such options as LED flashlights, alarms, etc... Operation of hand crank radios can use battery backup, use a solar energy source or simply crank its handle to charge. The dynamo or cranking mechanical process is considered as the key feature as it charges quickly and independant of any power supplies.
