Sony is releasing a hand-cranked battery charger/emergency radio (ICF-B88/ICF-B08) on July 20. It will be extremely helpful as an emergency energy supply or as part of outdoor gear.
It is particularly useful – able to be charged up not only with the handle but with a USB AC adapter – either the accompanying USB cable or a USB AC adapter (sold separately) is necessary. It can also be charged with solar light.
It’s drip-proof (JIS IPX4) so that you can feel at ease while using it in areas with water exposure or outside in wet conditions.
