    Universal Mobile phone wind up charger?

    I was out driving a few weeks back when my car broke down on a country lane. I whipped my Blackberry out to ring for the AA when i discoverd.. YEP youve guessed it.. the battery had run out (well it is a black berry after all -_- ) So i was pretty much f**ked. Luckily some one pulled up behind me and they had a mobile phone which they let me use. Since then i have been compiling a small emergency bag which i will keep in the back of the car. Does any one know if you can get one? Ive googled it but not much has come up (apart from cheap ones from china)

    Does any one know if its possible
    I thought of that but
    1: When i broken down it was the battery. Apprantly the battery cable just randomly died :S So i wouldnt have been able to use in cigarette lighter to charge it up.
    2: It was at 2am lol Unless you can get a moon power panel it wouldnt be much good


    With a wind up one it would pretty much work in ANY conditions.
    P.s the reason i wanted a universal charger was just incase the same thing happend while my wife was driving. (Shes an iphone user...lucky bi*ch)

    Why not just plug your cell into the car charger, or go solar?

    I've had a couple of these and found them as much use as a chocolate teapot. You have to turn them just so, neither too fast or too slow, for a long time to get any useful charge. The rhythmic motion of your hand will of course attract attention of the wrong type
