HAND-CRANKED RADIO/ALARM CLOCK/FLASHLIGHT DESCRIPTION
Helpful Hint: Radio comes with a small amount of charge, so it may initially run longer with less cranking. However, when your radio completely runs out of power, it will take more cranking to restore the charge. We recommend 3-5 minutes of constant cranking.
When you're done using the radio, make sure you turn the switch off on the bottom of the radio to preserve power.
Instead of cranking, you can charge your radio by plugging it into your computer using the included USB plug. We found that just 20 minutes of charging by this method can give you nearly two hours of radio play (no cranking needed).
