1. Quick Start Guide
Pull the battery tab before
operation.
Never crank the radio prior to pulling the
battery tab or you can damage the unit.
If the battery is already depleted, charge the
battery before first use.
If the radio does not operate after
pulling the battery tab or anytime
during normal operation:
reset the radio by removing the battery and
inserting an open ended paper clip into the reset
hole. Replace the battery.
Maintenance:
1. Leave the radio plugged into a power
source (computer USB or AC) all of the
time. You cannot overcharge the radio.
If this is not possible:
2. Periodically charge the radio every few
weeks. This will extend the battery life
and provide a fully charged radio when
an emergency occurs. The solar
collector will not fully charge the
battery.
3. Remove, inspect and clean the radio
battery contacts every few months with
a cloth. Inspect the battery for corrosion
or leakage.

5.1 Best Practices for Charging
We recommend periodically charging the radio completely through the ADVENTURER’s USB port
(from your computer or the optional AC adaptor or DC converter). You can also leave it connected
to this power source all of the time (the ADVENTURER includes over current protection).
Version 2.11
©Copyright 2014, Ambient LLC. All Rights Reserved.
Page 5
This will insure a fully charged radio when you need it and the battery will last longer.
The solar collector will not completely charge your unit and is intended to extend the existing battery
charge.
5.2 DC and AC Power
Prior to using the ADVENTURER, we recommend you fully charge the rechargeable battery through
the USB Power Input (Figure 2).
Lift the rubber tab on the back of the ADVENTURER to expose the connectors, as shown in Figure 2.
Connect the Power In Cable (Figure 3, Cable 2) from the Power Input jack on the radio and the USB
Power source on your computer or optional AC or DC converter. The red battery charge indicator
light will illuminate when charging. Continue to charge the ADVENTURER for several hours or until
the charging light turns from red to green. The ADVENTURER is now ready for use.
Important Note: Use 5.0V USB power source (from a computer or appropriate AC or DC adaptor).
Over-voltage may result in damaging the ADVENTURER.
5.3 Solar Power
Place the ADVENTURER in direct (or indirect) sunlight with the solar panel facing upwards.
NOTE: There is not enough solar energy to turn on the red charging light. Thus, no red charging light
will be present during solar charging.
NOTE: If the display heats up outside the operational range, the display will fade.
NOTE: The solar collector will not completely charge the ADVENTURER and is intended to extend
the existing battery charge. The solar collector efficiency is significantly impacted by direct vs.
indirect sunlight, angle of the solar collector, angle of the sun and weather conditions, including your
latitude, time of year (winter vs. summer), time of day, and cloud cover.
5.4 Hand Crank Power
To operate the hand crank, perform the following:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Disconnect the smart phone or PDA first from the USB charging port first
before cranking (the crank charges the internal battery and by design, the smart device must be
disconnected first to prevent the phone from power cycling and reduce the load on the crank).
1. Turn the hand crank either clockwise or counterclockwise at about two cranks per second for
two minutes to activate the internal battery for initial use, or when the unit has not been used
for more than 60 days. The red battery charging light illuminates when charging, as shown in
Figure 1. After two minutes of cranking at two revolutions per second, wait two minutes to
begin cranking again. This will extend the crank life.
2. For subsequent charges, turn the hand crank for one minute to produce 70 minutes of
continuous light for the LED flashlight, or 16-20 minutes of continuous radio usage (subject
to volume) or approximately 3-5 minutes of talk time on the smart phone (your results may
vary due to phone variation).
5.5 Power Consumption
The ADVENTURER includes a large battery capacity (800 mAh) but different operational modes
result in significantly varying power consumption requirements. Here is a general guide on power

6.4.2 Weather Band Tuning
There are seven distinct weather channels. The frequencies are 162.400 MHz, 162.425 MHz, 162.450
MHz, 162.475 MHz, 162.500 MHz, 162.525 MHz and 162.550 MHz.
For a complete list of weather radio broadcasting stations, please visit the National Weather Service
website:
www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm
Our recommendation is to tune to the station with the best reception using the TUN+ button. You will
hear the “voice of the National Weather Service”, and automated voice that provides forecast
information, weather statements, watches and warnings.
6.4.3 Weather Alert Mode
You can silence the radio and enter the alert mode. The radio will remain in standby mode until there
is a weather statement, watch or warning. To activate the Weather Alert Mode, tune to your local
station as defined in the previous section.
Press and hold the MODE button until the WB symbol begins flashing. The WB symbol will continue
to flash until there is a weather statement, watch or warning. In the event of an alert, the alert light
will flash and the radio will sound (with the voice of the National Weather Service). To disable the
alert light, press any key. To disable the alert light but continue in alert mode, press and hold the
MODE button to two seconds.
To verify you have reception in your area, the National Weather Service (NWS) normally run tests
each Wednesday between 10 a.m. and noon local time. Tests may occur at other days and times when
Version 2.11

Page 8
there is a threat of severe weather in the listening area or for other reasons.
Important Note: If battery power is low, the unit will exit the weather alert mode and enter the time
display mode.
6.5 Smart Phone and PDA Operation
Because smart phone batteries vary in their current ratings, we cannot specify charging rates or usage
time. 10 to 15 minutes of cranking may result in 1 or more minute of talk-time, but your results may
vary.
Note: Charging a smart phone through the Phone Charger Jack is intended for emergency purpose
only. It is not intended for recharging fully a discharged smart phone battery. Smart phone battery
capacity significantly exceeds the battery capacity of the ADVENTURER. Therefore, a fully charged
ADVENTURER will only partially charge a smart phone or PDA device. After the battery stops
charging the device, begin cranking if a DC power source is not available to continue recharging the
smart phone.
To charge the smart phone or music player device:
1. Set POWER button to OFF.
1. Plug the smart phone charging cable (Figure 2, A.2) into the ADVENTURER charge output
(Figure 2). Connect the appropriate smart phone tip (Figure 3, Tips 4 and 5) into the other end
of the smart phone charging cable (Figure 3, Cable 1).
2. Plug other end of the smart phone tip into the smart phone’s charging connector.
In addition to the smart phone tips, a USB female connector (Figure 3, Tip 3) is available if
your smart phone connector is not supported. If this is the case, contact your smart phone
manufacturer for the appropriate USB to smart phone charger conversion cable. Connect the
female USB tip (Figure 3, Tip 3) into the other end of the smart phone charging cable (Figure
3, Cable 1), and connect the female USB tip into the smart phone’s conversion cable.
3. If the phone does not begin charging, disconnect the phone and begin cranking. After two
minutes of cranking at two revolutions per second, wait two minutes to begin cranking again.
This will extend the crank life.
Note: You may receive a charging compatibility error on your smart phone, but your device may still
charge and it will not harm your device.
6.6 Low Battery Indication
When the battery voltage is less than 3.0V, the low battery indication will be displayed:
The radio will not operate in a low battery condition.
6.7 Audio Output
The ADVENTURER includes an audio output jack. This allows you to listen with headphones or
connect to an auxiliary input source, such as an amplifier.
CAUTION: Guard your ears against hearing damage. When listening with headphones, start at the
lowest volume and gradually increase until you can hear it comfortably and clearly.
Read this Important Information before Using Your Earbuds:


Avoid extended play at very high volume as it may impair your hearing.
If you experience ringing in your ears, reduce the volume or shut off the unit.
Keep the volume at a reasonable level even if your headset is an open-air
type designed to allow you to hear outside sounds. Please note that excessively high volume
may still block outside sounds.
6.8 Resetting the Unit
If the unit experiences a low voltage, it is possible that the internal micro-controller may lock up and
the unit will not respond to any commands from the panel controls. In this event, use a straightened
paper clip, toothpick or similar objects to press the RESET button located underneath the battery in
the battery compartment. The reset operation clears the system memory to factory default, and all of
your previous settings will be erased.

Problem
Phone generates an error message when
plugged into the ADVENTURER.
My Ipod / IPhone does not display the
charge signal.
The ADVENTURER will no longer hold
a charge.
The Weather Band reception is poor.
My smart phone connector is not
supported. Where can I purchase the
proper tip for my smart phone?
The ADVENTURER will not fully charge
my smart phone.
I never receive weather alerts.
Version 2.11
Solution
A lower voltage output may result in error messages on
the phone but should still charge the phone.
The output voltage of the ADVENTURER is lower than
the operating voltage of the IPod / IPhone, and will not
charge these devices until the battery is fully discharged.
The device is only intended for emergency charges and
not for topping off already charged devices.
Remove the battery and inspect the battery and battery
terminals of corrosion or debris.
Replace the 3.7V lithium ion rechargeable battery
(LIR123A). Typically, this battery will hold 2000 charge
cycles.
Important note: ALWAYS replace with rechargeable
batteries, available from AmbientWeather.com.
 Weather band reception can be poor inside a
metal building, structure or where electronic
noise is present. Try moving outside to improve
reception
 Check local reception by driving to a different
location and testing the weather band reception.
 Radio reception is dramatically reduced when
charging from USB. Disconnect USB power
when listening to the radio.
Contact Ambient Weather with your smart phone model
and connector type. The connectors included cover about
95% of the smart phone market.
Charging a smart phone through the Phone Charger Jack
is intended for emergency purpose only. It is not intended
for recharging fully a discharged battery. Smart phone
battery capacity significantly exceeds the battery
capacity of the ADVENTURER.
Therefore, a fully charged ADVENTURER will only
partially charge a smart phone or PDA device. After the
battery stops charging the device, disconnect the device
and begin cranking if a DC power source is not available.
Verify you receive the test alert from the National
Weather Service on Wednesday as described in the
weather alert section of this manual.
Verify you have tuned the weather band to your local
area and you have reception before activating the
Weather Alert feature.
Make sure you have good weather radio reception. If
your radio reception is poor, you will not receive any
alerts.

Problem
How can I receive warnings only and not
watches or statements?
The ADVENTURER is locked up and
will not respond to commands. How do I
reset it?
The red charging light does not illuminate
during solar charging.
The display fades when placed in direct
sunlight.
The ADVENTURER exits the alert mode
and displays time.
The radio does not fully charge with the
solar collector.
Solution
Selective filtering of statements, watches and warnings is
not possible. You will always receive all three levels.
Remove the battery. Press the reset button inside the
battery compartment with a paperclip. Reinstall the
battery.
There is not enough solar energy to drive the red
charging light.
If the display heats up outside the operational range, the
display will fade. For solar charging, partial sunlight or
shade is sufficient.
The weather alert mode consumes a significant amount
of power because it is constantly scanning for the
emergency 1050 Hz tone from the National Weather
Service. We recommend connecting power input to a
USB computer port or the optional USB to AC converter
for continuous alert operation (reference Section 10).
Otherwise, you must rely on hand crank power in this
mode.
The solar collector will not completely charge the
ADVENTURER and is intended to extend the existing
battery charge. The solar collector efficiency is
significantly impacted by direct vs. indirect sunlight,
angle of the solar collector, angle of the sun and weather
conditions, including your latitude, time of year (winter
vs. summer), time of day, and cloud cover.
