From Walmart for around 30-35 dollars.

NOAA weatherband – all 7 channels
Built-in 3 white LED light source

Etón Corporation will contribute $0.49 to $1.00 of the sales price of each Red Cross product to support the American Red Cross.
it weighs just a couple of ounces, but for me it charges my ipod and i use an older cell phone that it charges right up. It also has all the weather bands which is a life saver in some places.
