Flashlight with pull-cord

LED flashlights are coming on the market in a flurry lately, but here's one with a difference: If you want to see it do its thing, pull its string. It has a pull cord like a Chatty Cathy, but instead of saying innocuous things it charges up the battery that powers its 5-LED flashlight. What really might make this device useful in a pinch is that you can plug your cellphone into it and charge that up, too, just by pulling that string. It also plugs into a car's accessory outlet and an included 12-volt AC adapter.
