The next time your power goes out, how will you stay on top of emergency broadcasts? Sure, you have that battery-powered radio, but do you actually have batteries handy? Didn't think so! This Solar Crank Radio ($40) has you covered. Let the sun power this compact AM/FM device or, when the weather fails you, give it a little manpower to get the juices flowing. Don't worry about having to turn it non-stop: just one minute of cranking produces half an hour of energy for the device.
