Important safety instructions
VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
Sangean suggest that you keep your AC Adapter at least 12 inches away from the radio while
listening to the AM Band.
Your Sangean Radio is powered by an AC adapter which is a “switching” or “switch-mode” type.
The DOE (Department Of Energy) has a Federal mandate; requiring all manufactures to use this
type of power supply.
This newer power saving technology has the unfortunate side effect of causing interference to the
AM radio band.
Therefore, we recommend that customers keep at least a 1 foot distance between the AC adapter
and the radio. This interference will not affect the FM Band. If you have any questions please
contact customer service at (888) 726-4326, (562) 941-9900 or [email protected]
If an AC adapter isn’t included in this model and if you wish to purchase an AC Adapter separately,
please refer to the specifications for the AC Adapter stated on the final page of the manual, or
please contact Sangean for the correct AC Adapter and specifications.
To learn more about the DOE mandate please visit http://www1.eere.energy. gov/buildings/
appliance_standards/product.aspx/productid/23
Please note not all AC adapters are alike.
The AC adapter that is included with this radio is designed to be used exclusively with this device.
Do not use an AC adapter that differs from the specifications on the AC adapter that is included.
If an AC adapter is NOT included with your radio and in order not to damage the unit and void your
warranty, specifications for the AC Adapter are stated on the final page of the manual, or please
contact Sangean for the correct AC Adapter and specifications. For customers in the US and
Canada, please call 888-726-4326. For all other areas, please contact us via [email protected]
Do not use an AC adapter that does not meet the correct specifications.
