The Personal Powerstation. A wind-up mobile phone charger, FM radio and LED torch (flashlight, dude) in one. It can even charge up a digital camera if it accepts 6V input. £19.99 ($32.98).
Go on, I can hear you from here – ‘what will they think of next, eh?’
‘Fitting easily into the palm of your hand the PowerStation has a little hand crank tucked into its base, and with just a few winds you can tune into your favourite radio station, flick on the double LED torch, or start to charge your mobile phone (Ericsson, Nokia, or Motorola). The sound from the radio can be listened to through a single ear-piece or through the on-board speaker, which is remarkably good for its size. To be able to charge your phone, listen to the radio and light your way, all in compact palm-sized gadget for under 20 [sic] is quite remarkable.’
