My grandpa had all sorts of old stuff which were intriguing for a 10-year old me, but most of them didn’t really do anything. I wasn’t allowed to play with his chemical substances, for example (he was a chemistry teacher), but the same closet housed a device that seemed like magic to me at that time: a dynamo flashlight. It doesn’t make much sense, but it was obvious to me that batteries could power things, while a lightbulb lighting up because of my hand movements was very weird.
The Mini Dynamo Crank was a blast from the past. It’s the kind of dynamo flashlight I would’ve loved when I was a kid – small enough and easy to work (I had to use two hands to press the lever…). Because it’s so small, it can fit in your purse or any drawer. If you’re the kind of person who always forget to replace batteries, you know you’ll need some light during a power outage or when a tire blows in the middle of the night… a dynamo flashlight gives you light regardless of circumstances (and availabily of batteries). Plus you can wow your children or grandchildren with it.
