Sometimes we get careless and allow our phones to run out of juice. Other times we are just so busy with work or too carried away spending time on social media that we forget to charge our phones. Funny thing is, we mostly never notice until when we are in urgent need of the phone.
So what do you do when you need to make an urgent call or find your way using GPS, and you are camping in the middle of nowhere with no hope of finding electricity anywhere?
That sounds like a pretty messed up situation to be in. Hopefully it doesn’t get serious enough to become a matter of life and death!
With this Hand Crank Phone Charger, you would not need to worry about any of that.
This Hand Crank Phone Charger is from the American Red Cross. It is also called a Clipray. It is a crank-powered USB cell phone charger and LED flashlight meant for use in emergency situations.
Basically, you crank it a few
thousand times and it charges up your dead or low battery. That sounds like a life-saver to me. Especially at those times when you just might die from boredom. Just a few cranks and you will be back to scrolling through your feed or making that very important call.
But that is not all that it can do…
The Hand Crank Phone Charger features a powerful LED flashlight. There is a push button to turn it on or off. No need for carrying extra batteries around because it is also crank-powered.
The crank is located on one side of the device. It has a carabiner clip to allow for easy carriage if you do not want to put it in your backpack or something.
It is worthy of note, however, that not all phone types are compatible with this device. To check if your phone is compatible, refer to the official Amazon product page or check directly with the manufacturer.
Campers, hikers and anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors will be glad to have this. And if you are one of those people that find it difficult to remember to charge your phone, you may want to have at least two of these. One in your car and another in your backpack or in some other place you always have quick access to.
