Phone Charging

The standard USB port can be used to charge your USB devices. The internal batteries of the radio have the capacity of 4000 mAh.

You might need to provide your own cable to charge your device.

NOTE: To extend the internal battery life, it’s suggested to use this function only in emergencies.

Power the Device

USB charging

Connect the supplied micro-USB cable to the micro-USB input port to charge the lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. The 4 blue power indicators will flash while the radio is being charged, and stays on after it is fully charged. Please have the radio charged at least once every three months.

Hand crank dynamo

The radio’s batteries can be charged by turning the handle at the back of the device and activating the dynamo. The handle can be turned either clockwise or counterclockwise.

The red charging indicator should light up when the handle is being turned.

Turning the handle at the speed of 130 rpm for one minute will support 30-minute far beam illumination or 6-minute radio listening.

Solar power

Expose the solar panel in clear sunlight to let it charge as efficiently as possible. The red charging indicator should light up when the panel is receiving enough sunlight to start charging. This is mostly used for maintaining the batteries, or prolonging the battery life.

Replaceable li-ion batteries

We suggest that you can replace the batteries in these two situations:

  1. The batteries are damaged.
  2. Replace two fully charged batteries when the current batteries are dead in power outage.

Use a screwdriver to open the battery cover, and replace two 18650 Li-ion batteries.

The radio will automatically turn off when the battery voltage is lower than 2.7V, or there is an overload or a short circuit in the unit.

Power Indicator

The power indicators will light up for 30 seconds when the radio/flashlight/reading lamp is turned on.

  • The first LED flashing: < 3%
  • One solid light: 3-25%
  • Two solid lights: 25-50%
  • Three solid lights: 50-75%
  • Four solid lights: >75%
