The Refac Handcranked Radio with Beacon ($49.95) is an ingenious device that is great for power-outage emergencies and yet can still be used on a daily basis. A hand operated dynamo generates electrical current that is stored by internal rechargeable batteries. It's easy to use; just crank the handle and it's ready to operate. This radio-flashlight combination can also be recharged using an AC power adapter that is provided.

The radio portion of this radio-flashlight combination can receive AM, FM and the weather band. The flashlight portion can be set to shine continuously as a red or white spotlight, or to blink as a red warning light.
