Precautions •• Operate the unit on the power sources specified in “Specifications.” •• For AC operation, use the supplied AC power cord; do not use any other cord. •• Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if it is not to be used for an extended period of time. •• To use the unit on battery power, disconnect the AC power cord from the wall outlet and the AC IN jack. The unit cannot be powered by batteries if the AC power cord is connected. •• When the AC power cord is connected, even if batteries are inserted, the power source will automatically switch from batteries to AC power. •• Avoid exposure to temperature extremes, direct sunlight, moisture, sand, dust or mechanical shock. Never leave in a car parked under the sun. •• Should anything fall into the unit, remove the batteries, and have the unit checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further. •• Since a strong magnet is used for the speaker, keep personal credit cards using magnetic coding or spring-wound watches away from the unit to prevent possible damage from the magnet. •• When the casing becomes soiled, clean it with a soft dry cloth moistened with mild detergent solution. •• Never use abrasive cleansers or chemical solvents, as they may deform the casing. •• Make sure not to splash water on the unit. This unit is not waterproof. •• Always keep this product out of the reach of small children. The headphone cord may become twisted around a child’s neck and cause strangulation. •• Listening with this unit at high volume may affect your hearing. For traffic safety, do not use this unit while driving or cycling. •• Under certain circumstances, especially when the air is very dry, it is not uncommon to experience a discharge of static electricity, or shock, when your body comes in contact with another object, in this case the ear buds touching your ear(s). The energy from this natural discharge is extremely small and is not emitted by your product but rather a natural environmental occurrence. •• Depending on the strength of radio signals, the TUNE (tuning) indicator may not light up even if a broadcast is being received. Furthermore, the indicator may light up incorrectly due to extraneous noise even when a broadcast is not being received. Use the TUNE indicator as a reference. •• When connecting headphones (not supplied) to the unit, use headphones with a stereo (3-pole) or monaural (2-pole) mini plug. Sound may not be heard when using other types of plugs.

When to replace the batteries Replace all three batteries with new ones when the OPR/BATT (operation/battery) indicator goes out. As the batteries become drained, the OPR/BATT indicator may gradually grow dimmer before it goes out or static from the radio may grow louder. Although you may still be able to use the radio for a while in this state, please replace the batteries as soon as possible. Notes on batteries •• Do not mix an old battery with a new one or mix different type of batteries. •• When you are not going to use the unit for a long time, remove the batteries to avoid damage from battery leakage and corrosion. •• Check if the batteries are inserted in the correct orientation ( and ) when the radio does not turn on after battery replacement. •• Batteries have a recommended use-by date for proper use. When using expired batteries, battery life will be extremely short. Check the use-by date on the batteries and if they are expired, replace them with new ones. If the battery compartment cover comes off Insert the right hook tab of the lid into the right hole, then put the left hook tab on the edge of the opening and slide it slowly until it fits into the left hole.
