Re: Another thread on safety, some useful info.

The advantage of a hand crank charger over battery pack is that it can supply power as long as you are able to crank it. The battery pack will eventually discharge, even in storage. The solar/wind charger requires weather conditions. The crank works as long as you are able to work with it.
