🙋 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 🙋
Q: How long does it take to fully charge the internal li-ion battery using (a) electrical outlet (b) solar panel or (c) hand crank?
A: Plugged into a wall, it takes +/- 10 hours to fully charge the internal. Short access to direct sunlight or short spurts of hand cranking (about 130-150 RPM for 3-5 mins at a time) provide sufficient power for several hours of use during an emergency. Keep in mind that our internal battery capacity is 2x-4x the size of others, so it’s not necessary to fully charge by sunlight or hand cranking. These are just emergency alternatives.
Q: How long does the radio last after cranking for 2 mins?
A: In this case, the radio would last about 20 mins and flashlight about 10 mins.
Q: Can you charge it with the hand crank or solar panel if the battery is already fully depleted?
Q: How do you know when the battery is fully charged?
A: A red light appears while charging. Also the LCD screen has a battery level indicator with 8 lines when fully charged.
Q: Can this really charge a cell phone?
A: Yes! For an average smartphone it takes +/- 20 mins to increase the charge by 10%.
Q: I plan to store this in my survival kit. How should I maintain the battery?
A: To keep the internal battery healthy, we recommend 1x a month to hand crank for 3-5 minutes or solar charge it for 1-2 hours.
Q: Does it have an emergency alarm siren in case you need to be found?
A: Yes! The SOS button initiates a loud siren and flashing lights. Also included is a BONUS survival whistle.
Q: Does it have an AUX port to play music from my phone? Are there other radio stations besides weather band?
A: Yes, you can play music from your phone, or listen to any local AM/FM station.
