October 10, 2011 (Powerhomebiz.com) A wind up torch or wind up radio, which is also sometimes known as clockwork radio, is a device that is powered by human energy rather than battery power. Unlike conventional radios that are usually powered by electricity or battery energy, a windup radio can simply be operated by winding a spring, which in turn runs a dynamo and thus produces electrical energy needed to operate the device.
Wind up radio or wind up torch is extremely useful when you are in the country where there is no electricity or when you are not able to get hold of a battery. Having clockwork energy do the job for you at that time is nothing short of a boon .
While such gadgets are generally used in areas where it is not possible to use a normal radio, these are also extremely useful when the radio is used rarely and where old batteries run the risk of deteriorating and thus causing damage to the equipment itself.
The modern wind up devices that are used these days combine a number of gadgets into a single tool to allow multi-purpose use. So, you may see a radio that also includes a flashlight and an emergency siren. These may also have the advantage of multiple power sources such as battery and electricity besides having the ability to operate on wind up energy.
Another alternate source of power that can be used to operate your torch or radio is solar energy. While both solar and wind energy are extremely useful and have their own advantages, wind energy scores in conditions where there is no sunlight. However, most of the devices available these days can be operated on both these energy sources.
Most wind up radios can be listened to for around 20 minutes with just around 60 seconds of winding.
Windup radios will be well appreciated by your clients and used for a long time . Your promotional gift may be used for leisure activities such as camping or kept near at hand for emergencies such as power-cuts, floods or storms.
Promoting your business with a wind up radio shows that you care for your surroundings as a conventional radio will generate landfill waste of used batteries with possibly hazardous materials. A wind up radio creates no such waste . The actual action of winding up the radio will focus your Client’s eyes on your promotional message and remember your business activities.
