Crank it up and save on batteries

Bookmark and Share  

June 10, 2014

Many new "crank up" devices, that don't need batteries, are now on the market at reasonable prices. Just turn a crank to charge up the internal batteries. Radios, flashlights and cell phone chargers (or combinations of these) are among the appliances you can "crank up." Check these out -- as well as solar chargers -- at electronic or outdoors store, or online.
