Chapter 2 POWER SUPPLY MODE
There are 5 power supplies to power the radio:
- Hank Crank Power(1) Unfold the crank handle from the backside and rotate it in either direction.(2) Rotate the crank handle, It will generate 300-350mA electricity to charge a built-in 5000mAh rechargeable battery.Note: Rotate the crank handle at the speed of 2 laps per second.It will generate 300-350mA electricity.
- Solar Power(1) Expose the solar panel to sunlight, don’t charge indoors.(2) It will generate 30-50mA electricity to charge a built-in 5000mAh rechargeable battery.Note: Solar panels will generate 30-50mA electricity when exposed to sunlight.It is difficult to fully charge the 5000mAh battery with a solar panel, which is mostly used for maintaining the rechargeable battery.
- Micro USB Adapter Charging input(1) Connect USB Cable(included) to a regular AC power adapter(not included).(2) Plug the USB cable into the Micro USB port of the radio.(3) Plug the AC adapter to a 110-220V standard outlet.It is highly recommended to use a 5V/2A AC power adapter.
