• For example, turning
the crank at about 2 turns per second for about
90 seconds should power the radio for about
10 minutes. If playback time decreases to less
than 5 minutes at this cranking rate, replace the
rechargeable battery pack.
Replace the Battery Pack
Your radio comes with a 3.6V, 300 mAh, Ni-MH
rechargeable battery pack or equivalent. To replace the
battery pack:
1. Remove the battery pack, then unplug the connector.
2. Insert a new battery pack plug into the connector,
then place the battery pack into the slot.
4
Install Batteries (Optional)
Insert 3 AA batteries (not included) into the battery
compartment matching the marked polarity. Switch
DYNAMO/BATTERY to BATTERY.
b Battery Note:
• Dispose of batteries promptly and properly. Do not
burn or bury them.
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of
batteries (alkaline or rechargeable), or rechargeable
batteries of different capacities.
• If you do not plan to use the radio for a long time,
remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals
that can damage electronic parts.
5
Use an Adapter (Optional)
You can listen to the radio and charge the radio’s battery
pack at the same time. Connect a DC adapter (not
supplied) to the DC IN jack. Battery pack charging time is
about 12 hours to fully charge.
Note: You must use a Class 2 power source that
supplies 6V DC and delivers at least 300mA. Its center tip
must be set to positive and its plug must fit your radio’s
6V jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these
specifications could damage your radio or adapter.

n Note:
• When charging your mobile device, the radio’s
rechargeable battery pack must be inserted.
• Please charge the rechargeable battery pack before
charging your device so that the USB port can provide
enough power. If the power of rechargeable battery
pack is exhausted, the radio cannot charge your
device properly.
Connect Headphones
Connect headphones with a 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) plug (not
supplied) to the headphone jack s. The speaker will
automatically mute.
Listening Safely
Do not wear headphones, earphones, or earbuds while
operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a
traffic hazard and could be illegal in some areas.
To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines:
• Do not listen at high volume levels. Extended high-volume
listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting. Then turn on your
audio device and adjust the volume to a comfortable level.
• Avoid increasing the volume. Your ears will adapt to the
volume level, so a level that does not cause discomfort
could still damage your hearing.
