    Hand cranked radio question

    hand cranked radio question (ignore - figured out) Your two friends argued whether they should crank more cycles (e.g. 180 cycles in 1 minute) or longer time (e.g. 180 cycles in 2 minutes) to efficiently charge the internal batteries. They couldn't conclude with their knowledge and decided to...
