hand charger for neo

The cranks I've tried don't have much in the way of voltage regulation
and usually don't have a capacitor to avoid voltage dropouts when you
skip a beat... the duracell flashlight/usb crank voltage varies all
over 3v-5.5v with inconsistent cranking. At least the "sidewinder" has
a cap to avoid dropouts, but it worries me that it'll go to 6.3v with
fast cranking.

Maybe there are better crank chargers out there that really could be trusted...
