Bass Pro shops sells a cheap handcrank/solar radio. Eton Microlink FR160. I think I paid under $20US. Will also do a few minute charge on your cell phone for emergencies and has a flashlight. Probably the same one JZB has.
Just a note. Last time I cranked it up was in September, just turned on the radio and checked the flashlight and both are working fine.
