solar radio, hand crank radio

Operated on 4 Power Sources
Dynamo Power: The hand crank generator charges the internal NI-MH Batteries. 
Solar Power: You can play this Radio with the direct Sun or charge the NI-MH batteries.
With  12  hours in the Sun, you get 6-8 hours playing.
Batteries: 3 AA batteries allow you to play the Radio the old fashioned way.
Electric: With the included adapter, you can play or charge with 110V electricity.

Note: 6 hours charging = 72 hours playing

Four Way Power Multiband Radio
Q:  How long will the radio play when you use the DYNAMO (Crank) to charge the
INTERNAL (Ni-MH) batteries?
A:  There are several factors to take into consideration to answer this question.
        1.  If you use the Dynamo when the Ni-MH batteries are almost dead, your
             play time will be dramatically shorter than when you crank from a low
             battery position.   (When low indicator lights up)  When the batteries
             are completely exhausted, you have to use AC/D adapter to charge the
             radio for at least 8 hours to resume the batteries.
        2.  If you crank from a low battery (not dead), your ratio will be
             approximately:   2 minutes crank time will play one hour.
        3.  If you turn the handle steady and fast, your results will be much better.
Q:  What is the best way to use the radio or charge the INTERNAL Ni-MH batteries?
A:  In this order:
        1.  AC/DC ADAPTER.   Direct electricity or using the radio from a direct
             electrical charge is obviously the best way to play the radio.  Never
             charge more than 12 hours from a dead point.  4 hours charge from
             low point, you can expect the radio to play 72 hours.
        2.  AA BATTERIES.   The radio will play continuously a minimum of 72 hours
             on 3 alkaline batteries.
        3.  SOLAR CHARGE.   Bright sun for 12 hours will produce 6-8 hours of playtime.
             Cloudy days about 1/2 the playtime.  It always plays when exposed to
             bright sun.   The charging time and play time is similar to the crank time
             against play time.  Caution -  Proper ventilation is essential to the life of
             the internal and external parts of the radio.  Do not leave it in the direct
             sun for more than 6 hours even with ventilation. Playing the radio loud will reduce play time.
        4.  DYNAMO.  With so many power sources, this will be the last choice.
             However if you have no electricity, no sun and no batteries, this is the
             best way and only way to charge and then use your radio.
Q:  How long will the internal batteries last?
A:  The Ni-MH batteries can be fully charged and discharged over 500 times, or a
     minimum of 5 years.  They can only be replaced at the factory by a professional
     technician.  Even when the Ni-MH batteries are completely exhausted,
     ELECTRICITY, SOLAR and AA BATTERIES will still play the radio.
Q:  Which shortwave stations can I hear?
A:  This depends on several factors.
        1.  WHERE you and the radio are.  If you are listening from inside a large
             building or mountainous area, you may need a shortwave antenna for
             better reception.   Eastern states pick up European stations easier than the
             Western.   The West picks up easily Asia and Australia.  Canada and Latin
             America are easy from all areas.
        2.  WHEN you are listening.  Evening or late night with less interference,
             reception is always better.  The signals are reflected by clouds when they
             travel around the earth, you have more clouds at night, so you will be
             able to receive more stations.
Q:  What about the WEATHER band?
A:  Your local weather band will be available on the WX band.  They are around
     162.5 Mhz frequency.
Q:  What about TV?
A:  You can receive network and local VHF stations on 2 TV bands.  Channel 1-6 on TV1 and channel
      7-13 on TV2.
Q:  What about TAXI, POLICE and other bands?
A:  On the VHF band (WX) you may receive many stations such as taxi, police, various business stations      and some TV stations..  Because many are not fixed stations, you may be
     able to tune in at various times and frequencies.
