Handy Gizmo

At our fishing club meeting last night I was lucky enough to have my door prize raffle ticket drawn, and here's what I won. It's a 3 LED flashlight with either steady light or a strobe-like flashing light, an AM/FM radio, and a small siren, all in a small package.

The light is on the front, the oval button turns on the light, the black lever selects AM or FM. The tuning knob is on one side, the volume on the other, and the speaker is on top near the rear.

It even has a small retractable telescoping antenna.

The whole device is powered by turning the folding crank on the bottom for a minute or so. I don't know if it uses a big capacitor or a rechargeable battery to store the electricity generated by cranking, but however it does it, it seems to work as it should.

This should be a handy little gizmo for when the power goes out, which seems to be happening a lot lately........

I have one like that. Mine also can charge a cell phone.
