Wind-Up Cell Phone Charger

Whether or not this Wind-Up Charger actually works is beyond me. I don't doubt that it does, I just can't help but wonder if it's anything like the wind-up radios of yesteryear. With the wind-up, cell-phone charger, you can charge up your phone when there isn't an electrical outlet in sight. Just turn the handle vigorously for a few minutes and your phone will get enough power for approximately 25–30 minutes. Featured on Zedomax, it also comes with a built-in flashlight so you have some back-up in power outages. Priced at $12 each.

This is perfect for hurricane season especially since the power in non-rich Miami likes to go out even if there isn't a hurricane. This seems like a good idea for emergencies.

I had to buy something similar to this when I was traveling in England and I forgot my charger (it's funny I can't remember why they couldn't just sell me a charger, but I do remember that I couldn't get one). The stupid thing put like MAYBE one quarter of one bar of charge on my phone. I don't know about this particular product but after my experience I wouldn't try anything like it again.

i could use this. when i go camping they dont have outlets so i have to go without my phone. my dad has a flashlight that is wind up and it works great.

That looks so weird. I wouldn't have any use for it.

I guess this would be good in emergency situations, but I'd like to hope I stay close to electrical outlets. :)

These are great but they never have an attachment for my phone...I do have an old phone that they would work for so I keep that phone in my car when I'm traveling because if nothing else I can call 911.
