Got this the otherday,handcranked LED flashlight.Three bulb,very bright,15 seconds of crank makes 15 minutes of light.Made in(where else)China,$8 puts out more light than my Maglite.A little crank dynamo and a lith battery,simple as snot,but effective.

Same company makes the shake-up flashlight evidently,since plastered across the package was "just shake for light":D

Where did you get the light?

Costco has been selling a unit that works on the same principle. It is shaped somewhat like a TV remote control, which to me is a plus. One can lay it down and it will not roll. A two-pack costs about $20.

IMHO, these make ideal emergency lights; there is no bulb to burn out or batteries to run down. I bought an armload of them and gave them to my siblings to keep in their cars.

You bought a flashlight?

You're supposed to machine your own - and then post pictures. :)

One of the importers we deal with sent us three for samples,folks liked them so we called up to get a case,they were already sold out until November.

There is also Freeplay-


all sorts of wind up devices that wind up like an old phonograph,I have one of the're radios and boy did it work good after the storm.Check out the cell phone charger and the portable power unit.

That's OK but my favourite gift was a Wolflite from the Wolf Safety Lamp Company in Sheffield, England.
Four rechargeable D cells, 1 mile beam, certified for marine use if lanyard is used.
Got a wind-up too, com bining both could be a challenge,
