There’s nothing new about the wind-up radio, but how about one that functions as a torch, a siren in emergencies and charges your mobile phone – like the Eton FR350.
Obviously, it’s eco-friendly, requiring your own elbow grease for power. As a radio, it has FM/AM bands, along with short wave should you need it. There’s also a 3 LED light system with emergency flash, an emergency siren and with a few cranks of the handle, you can even add a bit of charge to your mobile if you fall flat in the wilds.
The whole thing is shower-proof, available in a choice of colours and does also work via battery and mains if your arm needs a rest. Available now for £39.95.
