The Kaito KA500 Multi-Powered Disaster AM/FM/SW NOAA Radio is specifically designed for home use and emergency situations — and offers multiple methods to power itself. Those methods include AC/DC adapter (not included), three AA batteries (not included), the built-in rechargeable Ni-MH battery which can be charged from the AC adapter, by hand cranking, by solar panel or by a PC, and the dynamo hand crank which not only can keep the built-in battery fully charged but also provides power for the radio even when no battery is installed. The KA500 Emergency Radio is made of strong premium impact-resistant and water-resistant ABS material, suitable for both indoors home/office use and outdoors recreational activities.
With its revolutionary design and versatile functions, it’s an ideal companion for emergency preparedness purposes, outdoor activities as well as traveling.

Also, by plugging your cell phone into the jack on the back of the radio, you can use the crank to power your phone. Not only that, this radio also features an USB port which you can use either to charge your radio with a PC or charge other electronic gadgets with the hand crank.
