These Wind Up Walkie Talkies could apparently be useful for an ‘emergency situation’ which leaves us a little baffled. How much of an emergency can you sort out while furiously cranking a handle to get powered up? Not to mention the lack of puff to talk when you’re finally ready to go. Ah well, it’s probably better than using a solar model in a tunnel. £59.99.
This kit includes two two-way radios that are powered by a wind-up mechanism, so there’s no need to worry about batteries running down in an emergency situation or simply just when it’s important to stay in touch. They can also be charged via a mains adaptor or USB and topped up using the wind-up crank to ensure optimum performance and the longest possible usage time.
