batteries. Most of my life, I've tried
to buy devices using D cells, or AA cells.

C cells, which they were out of.
I let him borrow an extra wind-up radio I had.
Most flashlights like that use 3 AAA cells. Does that one?
BTW, I didn't think a wind-up radio was a real thing until I got one.
I have one in my BoB. But, the mainspring makes it uncomfortably large.
I've depated adding an output tap so I could use it to power other
And, I wish it had a digital tuner instead of the crappy old analog style.
