Until fuel cell technology becomes ubiquitous and cheap, you might wanna opt for good old fashion hand cranked power. The Cell Phone Charging Hand-Crank Radio also receives AM/FM, 7 weather channels, VHF TV audio, and has ALERT function to receive National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration weather warnings. It also includes a 2 LED flash light beam and a red blinking light. Turning the crank charges its internal NiMH battery. No info on cell phone compatibility, but assume the major ones.

Available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $50.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
