One last post about wind-up radios. The manual for my Grundig FR200 (as featured on BSG) blithely instructs, “On the average, 60-90 seconds of vigorous cranking results in about 40-60 minutes of radio play at low volume.”
Let me just tell you, those are the longest 90 seconds of your life. That’s because it is resistance against the movement of the hand crank that generates the power that makes it run.
(Click here to watch on YouTube if the video is being cranky.)
Repeat at least six times daily, as part of a full Cataclysm Workout, for maximum fitness and survival effects.
