the compartment. Ensure all batteries are inserted with the correct
polarity as shown inside the battery compartment.
3. Slide the battery switch to the Alkaline position and then replace the
battery cover.
Important: when using alkaline batteries, the battery switch must
be placed in the alkaline position. Failure to do so could result
in serious damage to the batteries or radio.
Reduced power, distortion and a “stuttering“ sound are all the signs
that the batteries may need replacing.
If the radio is not to be used for any extended period of time,
it is recommended that the batteries are removed from the radio.
We would recommend for economy that the radio is used via the
AC adaptor whenever possible with battery operation for occasional
or standby use only. If extended listening using batteries is
anticipated, then the use of rechargeable batteries is recommended.

A few words about batteries
Rechargeable batteries
Your radio has been designed to use a choice of power sources.
You may plug it into the mains using the supplied adaptor. or for
listening away from the mains, you may use either alkaline or
rechargeable batteries. We do not recommend the use of carbon-zinc or
zinc-chloride batteries.
Your radio use a range of methods to ensure correct and safe charging
of Rechargeable Nickel-Metal-Hydride batteries. These work to protect
your batteries from excessive charge and discharge.
It is very important that your read the advice and warnings given below.
1) whichever type of batteries you choose to use. It is very important
that the battery selection switch under the cover is set to the
correct type.
a. If no batteries are fitted, then set the switch to the Alkaline position.
This position minimizes the power consumption when the radio is
powered from the mains.
b. If Alkaline batteries are fitted, then set the switch to the
Alkaline position.
c. If Rechargeable batteries are fitted, then set the switch to the
NiMH position. Your radio is designed to use Nickel-Metal-Hydride
rechargeable batteries. No other type of rechargeable battery should
be used in this radio.
2) NEVER mix old and new Alkaline batteries. The old batteries may
suffer damage and leak which will damage your radio and whatever
the radio is standing on.
3) NEVER mix old and new Rechargeable batteries. This may result in
unreliable charging and shorten battery life. Never mix Rechargeable
batteries of different types or capacities even if they are new.
4) NEVER mix Alkaline and Rechargeable batteries. The recharging of
Alkaline batteries can be very dangerous.
These protection can only work properly if the advice above is followed.
In particular, the radio will not be able to correctly charge batteries
if they are a mixture of different brands, or different ages,
or different capacities.
We recommend that all the rechargeable batteries used in your radio
are bought together as a set. They should always be charged together
and discharged together and not “borrowed“ from time to time for
other applications. This will ensure that they give their optimum
performance in your radio.
We recommend that the rechargeable batteries that you use should be
from a quality brand, and should be of at least 4000mAh capacity.
Batteries of this capacity should be able to power your radio for
between 10 and 20 hours depending upon the volume of the radio,
whether DAB or FM mode is used (DAB mode uses slightly less power
than FM), and also depending on the condition of the batteries.
Before you first install a new set of rechargeable batteries into
your radio, you should first make sure that the battery type switch
beneath the battery cover is in the NiMH (rechargeable) position.
Install the batteries arranging them as shown on the back of the radio.
Plug the mains adaptor into a mains socket and then into the radio.
While the batteries are charging, the battery indicator should show a
flashing green light. When the batteries are fully charged, the indicator
will stop flashing and will show a steady green light. The time taken to
charge the batteries will depend on how much charging they require.
New batteries may be partly charged when first fitted, but it is normal
for a set of batteries to take several hours to charge fully (this can be
between 6 and 9 hours depending on the battery capacity and their
initial state of charge.
22
GB
If you use the radio powered from batteries, the battery light will be off
until the batteries are exhausted. The battery light will then show red for
a while before the radio switches itself off. It does this in order that the
batteries are not excessively discharged. This would otherwise damage
the batteries and shorten their life.
If you use the radio powered from the mains with rechargeable
batteries fitted, the charging process is suspended until you switch off
the radio. When you switch off the radio using its On/Off button,
charging will then resume. If the batteries have already been charged
then they will only charge for a few more minutes before the battery
charge indicator stops flashing.
To avoid danger and risk of injury, please follow these
guide lines
Improper use of batteries may result in leakage of fluid, overheating or
explosion. Battery fluid is corrosive and may also be toxic. Battery fluid
can cause skin burns, can damage the eyes, and can be harmful if
swallowed.
1. Keep batteries out of the reach of children.
2. Do not heat, open, puncture, mutilate or dispose of batteries
by burning.
If you only listen to your radio for short periods, you do not need to
connect your radio to the mains to charge the batteries every time that
you use it. However, if the radio is not to be used for a few weeks,
we recommend that the batteries are fully charged before the radio is
put to one side (charge light show steady green).
3. Do not mix different battery types or old and new batteries.
Always replace all the batteries at the same time.
If you intend not to use your radio for some months, then we
recommend that the batteries are removed and put away, keeping them
in a cool place out of reach of children, away from moisture and such
that no metal object can contact the battery terminals.
5. Remove batteries from the radio if they are worn out or if you are
storing it for a long time.
With care, rechargeable batteries can last a long time and can operate
for many hundreds of charge and discharge cycles. When your
rechargeable batteries can no longer power your radio adequately,
please dispose of them thoughtfully.
23
4. Do not carry or store batteries such that metal objects may contact
the end caps.
6. Remove old or worn out batteries promptly, and recycle or dispose of
them according to the regulations applicable to your location.
7. If a battery does leak, remove all batteries from the product,
taking care to avoid directly touching the leaked fluid. If the fluid
contacts skin or clothes, wash with water immediately.
Before inserting new batteries, thoroughly clean the battery
compartment with a damp paper towel, or follow the battery
manufacturer’s advice for clean up.
