Thank You… … …
for purchasing this Emerson AM/FM Radio/Flashlight with a built-in wind-up dynamo
system that provides power when normal batteries are not available. This unique
model is designed to operate on two normal “AA” batteries (not included). But it is
also supplied with a compact Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable battery
pack inside the battery compartment. If the normal “AA” batteries are exhausted
and replacement batteries are not immediately available, you can power the radio
by winding the dynamo handle to charge the NiMH battery pack. 90 seconds of
winding the dynamo handle will provide approximately 30 minutes of radio operation
at medium volume level.
If you experience a power failure due to severe weather conditions, or any other
reason, this unique Emerson model will always be ready to provide you with
news, and a compact light source, until the power is restored.
Please read this manual carefully and completely to make sure you fully understand
the features and operation of this product.
Once again, thank you for purchasing this Emerson dual-powered radio/flashlight.

Using the Rechargable NiMH battery pack
Your radio has a built-in power generator which can charge the internal
rechargeable battery pack and let you play your radio without the “AA” batteries.
When you rotate the crank for as little as one and half minutes, the generator
recharges the 2.4V battery pack which powers the radio for about 30 minutes.
Follow these steps to power your radio using generator and the rechargeable
battery pack.
1.) Remove the battery compartment cover.
2.) The supplied 2.4V rechargeable battery is already installed in the battery
compartment, but not connected.
3.) Insert the battery pack’s white plug into the socket.
Caution: The battery pack’s polarized plug fits into the socket only one way.
If the plug does not fit properly, turn it over and try again. Do not force it.
4.) Replace the compartment cover.
5.) Set VOLUME to OFF.
6.) Unfold the crank handle and extend it to its full length, then rotate it clockwise
or counterclockwise. Radio operation time depends on the number of turns
and the time per turn. For example, approximately 2 turns per second for 90
seconds will provide about 30 minutes of radio operation at a medium volume
level. You can recharge the battery pack even while the radio plays.
