1. Introduction
Thank you for your purchase of the WR-SOLAR-BAG Solar Panel and Carrying Bag for Hand Crank
Emergency Weather Radios.
Ideal for camping and off-electrical grid applications, the Solar Panel and Carrying Bag for Ambient
Weather Hand Crank Emergency Weather Radios is an ideal accessory for the WR-089, WR-091,
WR-099, WR-111B, WR-112, WR-333, WR-334-U and WR-335 weather radios. More radios may be
added later.
The lightweight solar bag is ideal for your backpack or bug out bag. The solar bag has separate
compartments for the radio and connector cables.
The emergency radios have small solar collectors (limited by the size of the radio), and take a
significant amount of time to charge the radio. The solar bag's 9.5 x 6.5" surface area is large enough
to quickly charge the emergency radio in direct sunlight.
2. Description and Features





The solar bag does not include an internal battery, but connects to your emergency weather
radio’s power input port (similar to an AC adapter, DC converter, or computer USB port) for
charging the radio’s internal battery.
The solar bag will not charge a smart phone or PDA device directly. It is used to charge the
emergency radios internal battery.
The solar bag does not include any cables. Use the USB power input cable that came with
your emergency radio.
Refer to your emergency radio instruction manual for connecting to the power input port and
external charging information.
The solar bag includes pockets for storing your weather radio and cables.
3. Operation
Reference Figure 1. Connect the USB power input cable (provided with your emergency radio) to the
solar panel USB port. Connect the other end of the cable to the power input port on your emergency
radio (reference your weather radio manual to locate this port).
Place the solar panel in direct or indirect sunlight and orientate towards the sun for best results. When
there is sufficient solar energy for charging, the red charging light on the solar panel USB port will
turn on, and the charging light on the emergency radio should turn on.
When the solar panel is ready to charge, the LED will be solid on. When charging, the LED will flash.
