Hand Cranked LED Flashlight & Radio

We stopped at our local Kinney Drugs pharmacy today to pickup windshield washer fluid, and saw a much needed gadget on the shelf. It was a crank to charge AM/FM Radio and LED Flashlight. Not a clockwork mechanism, so no spring to break, no bulbs to burnout, no batteries to replace, just turn the handle. On sale for $15, it was easy to justify.

Products like this are a great alternative to using batteries, which will quickly end up in landfills. I've been using a flashlight that requires shaking to recharge. I love it.
