Hand crank radio cell-phone charger

Battery-less radios and flashlights, powered by hand cranking, have been out for a while now but Hisatomi Electric Ind. Co in Japan has put a new twist on these emergency gadgets. Their new flashlight will also power up a cell phone for about three minutes of talk time after a minute or two of twisting the crank. There are already phone chargers available which do this, like the Sidewinder, but the Hisatomi device is compact and combines the functions of several tools which could be of great use in emergencies.
