Inserting the Battery (Backup)
INSTALLING/REPLACING THE BACK-UP BATTERY
This unit is equipped with a battery back-up system, requiring one DC3V
CR2032 lithium battery (not included) to maintain the time/calendar settings and
radio presets during AC power outage.
1. Unscrew and remove the BATTERY COMPARTMENT COVER.
2. Install one fresh CR2032 lithium battery into the battery compartment
