Where does the power come from that generates our favorite electronic gadgets?
Where will it come from after the cataclysm?
Back in the day, Schoolhouse Rock said that if we didn’t have fuel to burn it would take a superhero to turn the generator real fast in order to make electricity. Technical advances since the 70s mean you can be the superhero today, spinning the handles of wind-up radios and flashlights like the ones in this photo, generating the power to make them go.
This wind-up radio offers FM, AM and two shortwave stations dials. You’ll want that many choices after the cataclysm. Who knows which stations will survive and where they’ll be? You can also get a wind-up radio with a plug-in for your cell phone. Then again, that won’t work unless the people you want to call have one too.
This flashlight has a clear case so you can watch the gears work to generate the power that runs it. Kind of like open-source code – see how it works and make a wind-up gadget of your own.
Be a superhero and get your wind-up gadgets now, before the rush on stores that happens before every cataclysm commences.
Just don’t be fooled by climate change deniers and wind-up flim-flammers:
Cool car, but this is not a true wind-up.
