Disaster Preparedness: No Batteries or Electricity Needed

Posted in: Emergency Preparedness,Product of the week

dynamoradioAs I’m putting together an emergency kit, I’m thinking in terms of worst case scenario. No batteries needed.

And the problem with most emergency appliances is that they either require batteries, or if they’re rechargeable, you need a power source to charge them. You may think you’ve prepared yourself by packing batteries in the kit, but what do you do when the batteries are gone?

The Dynamo Radio Flashlight solved both of my dilemmas. It does have a rechargeable battery, but uses a hand crank to charge it. I feel better knowing that if something disastrous happens, I can get weather reports, signal an alarm, find my way in the dark, and even charge my cell phone – no batteries or electricity needed!
