Wind Up Flashlights For Camping

contest winner icon

I purchased a wind up flashlight to use, never have to worry about if I bought enough batteries or if they will last long enough. A minute of cranking will last about 20 minutes and that's usually enough time to get to the shower house/restrooms.

Sounds like a VERY good idea. Just where do you find a wind-up flashlight? Every energy-efficient flash I have ever had has been majorly wimpy. Very little light and it takes a heck of a lot of energy on my part!

They had some at Walmart in the camping section on one of those hanging racks for about 5.00. I bought a couple every time I would go there. I looked the other day and they didn't have any but it's worth looking at your store. These have a grip crank so you just squeeze it with your hand and it will go for quite a while. These have an internal battery that charges up but when that runs out you can also just crank for light. Better than nothing in a blackout and mine have come in very handy, one for the car, a couple for the house.

Here's a link that has quite a few shake up and wind up flashlights:

I found a great one at WalMart for $19. It has regular light, a flashing white light for emergency, a siren that is very loud, a fm radio, a compass and a cellphone adapter. I bought 2 of them one for home and one for my car.
