The other day I was having a conversation with a stranger and she mentioned how she kept a dyno powered flashlight in the glove compartment of her car because did not want to have to worry about batteries.
I have several dyno powered devices for flashlights to radios for the same reason. I do keep a supply of batteries for emergency use but cranking a minute or two for a 20 minutes to and hour of usable light is not bad and powering a radio. I have a couple of the Freeplay some of the best make an a Eton radio dyno powered as well as battery. I also have some stuff like a LED flashlight that also will charge up my cell phone. The Local Walgreens has some decent stuff from radios to lanterns that I have gotten devices like a led falshlight dyno powered for $5. I have a am/fm/wb that is dyno powered/battery I got for 15. I keep the radio and flashlight in my BOB.
Some things I have found to be sturdier made but these are decent enough and given that other than the barreries I store in them I I know I have a powered source of light and radio .
I f you do not have some of these I highly suggest getting some. They are very servicable and useful.
Now where did I put those AAA batteries?

I've gone to crank or shake flashlights for my camping gear. The beam is weaker, but it's nice not to have to carry extra batteries. I also have a radio in my pack that can run on 110 v, AA batteries, crank, or solar. I really like it.

riverrat, where did you get the radio? Sounds like it is what I'm looking for. Does it have the NOAA weather alerts?

Even though a lot of people do not like shop there, I got my crank radio at wal-mart. It was a package deal - a crank or AA battery powered radio and a crank flashlight for 20 dollars.

Then I picked up one more crank flashlight.

So I have 2 hand crank flashlights and one hank crank radio. Over the next few months I plan on picking up several more good quality flashlights, and maybe another radio.

It's made by Kaito. I ordered it dirrectly from them, Sometimes Sportsmans Guide has them. (www.sportsmansguide.com). It has the weather band. It also picks up T.V. stations, AM, FM, and has 4 shortwave bands. I can even pick up the police, coast gaurd, railroad frequencies.
