Quick Question: What’s a Hand Crank Radio and How Do I Use It?

If you lose power during an emergency, staying in-the-know should be a top priority. Our JUDY Hand Crank Radio is your best friend when it comes to staying up to date with the latest news while you’re waiting for the power to come back. Along with the radio, our Hand Crank Radio comes with a built-in flashlight AND USB charge port, giving you light and power in addition to information.

It works by using an internal generator to create power. The external crank arm charges an internal battery by moving metal coils around a magnet, creating a current. This is especially useful for emergencies because all you need to charge the Hand Crank Radio are your own two hands! It’s as simple as: 

  • Unboxing the Hand Crank Radio from the Tools Cartridge in your Kit
  • Cranking the crank arm for 60-90 seconds 
  • Turn on the flashlight or tune in to your local news station

JUDY ProTip: Keep a list of your local news and weather stations in the tools cartridge so you don’t have to scramble during an emergency. 

The JUDY Hand Crank Radio is great for staying in the know during a quick power outage, but if you know your area is prone to power outages and you want something that packs a bit more of a punch, you might want to consider adding JUDY Power to your preparedness arsenal.
