Battery Back-Up Operation Help protect the environment - we recommend that you dispose of used batteries by putting them into specially designed receptacles. This clock radio is equipped with a memory holding system that can be powered with 2 “AA” batteries (included and installed). The power failure protection circuit will not operate unless battery is installed. When normal household power is interrupted, or AC line cord is unplugged, the batteries will power the clock radio to keep track of time and alarm settings programmed into memory. When the battery backup functions, the digital display will not light, however, the function of alarm still occurs during the power interruption if remaining battery power is adequate. Normal operation will resume after AC power is restored so you will not have to reset the time or the alarm. Maintenance Clean the unit with a soft cloth, or a damp chamois leather. Never use solvents. IMPORTADOR Comercializadora Thomson de México, S.A. de C.V. Álvaro Obregón No. 151. Piso 13. Col. Roma. Delegación Cuauhtémoc C.P. 06700. México, D.F.
