What are the charging parameters for the FR160?

When solar charging the radio, place it into direct sunlight (not through a window, screen, in artificial light or in shade) for 8 to 10 hours to get a full charge, after which it should play for about 4 to 5 hours, at low volume.

Crank charging it for 90 seconds will allow it to play for 15 to 20 minutes, at low volume. If you crank for a longer period, it will play longer.

If it loses power such that the radio no longer plays, the light may still shine for a couple of hours because it draws far less current than the radio.

To charge the FR160, turn the crank for 90 seconds and it will play for 15-20 minutes, at low volume. Or, put it into direct sunlight (not through a window, screen, in artificial light or shade) with the sun shining directly onto the solar panel, for 8 to 10 hours, after which the battery will be fully charged and will allow the radio to play for 4 to 5 hours, at low volume.
