A Few Words about Batteries…
Rechargeable batteries
Your Roberts Vintage radio has been designed to use a choice of power
sources. You may plug it into the mains using the supplied high-efficiency
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 Vintage radio uses 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. These
protections 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.
It is very important that you 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 minimises 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 the 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 shortened 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.
23
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 2500mAh capacity.
Batteries of this capacity should power your radio for between 15 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. Higher capacity batteries are
available and will give longer life, but will generally be more expensive.
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 position. Install the batteries arranging them
as shown inside the battery compartment. Plug the mains adaptor into the
radio and then into the mains socket. While the batteries are charging the
charge 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 3 and 7 hours depending on the battery
capacity and their initial state of charge).
If you use the radio powered from the batteries, the charge/low battery
indicator light will be off until the batteries are exhausted. The charge/
low battery indicator light will then show red for a short 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 charge indicator stops
flashing.
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, then
we recommend that the batteries are fully charged (charge light shows
steady green) before the radio is put to one side.
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.
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 responsibly using a local battery recycling facility.
If you need any further advice, please call our Technical Helpline on :020 8758 0338 (Mon-Fri)
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.
3. Do not mix different battery types or old and new batteries. Always
replace all the batteries at the same time.
4. Do not carry or store batteries such that metal objects may contact
the end caps.
5. Remove batteries from the radio if they are worn out or if you are
storing it for a long time.
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.

General
Do not allow this radio to be exposed to water, steam or sand. Do not leave
your radio where excessive heat could cause damage such as in a parked
car where the heat from the sun can build up even though the outside
temperature may not seem too high. It is recommended that the DAB band
be used wherever possible as better results in terms of quality and freedom
from interference will usually be obtained than on the FM band.
The name plate is located on the underside of your radio.
