Believe it or not the RED CROSS has a fine crank/solr charged multi-band radio with an alarmclock, light, and most important a USB port/cell phone charger..got 5 or six last Xmas for the clan...I use it (the radio) all the time, it lives in the truck...be sure to get one that has a cell phone chargeing option on it...
