No batteries required

The solar panel harnesses the sun’s energy to power your Scorpion and thanks to the battery charge indicator you’ll always know how much power you have left.  You can also use the hand crank to self-power radio broadcasts, the LED flashlight and even a cell phone. DC input power adapter sold separately.

What are the operational procedures for the Scorpion?

Cell Phone Charging Mode

To put the Scorpion in to cell phone charging mode, turn the Scorpion on and then press the M button over and over until you see the clock with CELL in the lower right corner. Then turn the crank for about 10 minutes to charge the phone enough to make one or two short, emergency calls. Press M go get it out of cell phone charging mode.

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 about 5 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 because it draws far less current than the radio.

To charge the Scorpion, turn the crank for 90 seconds and it will play for about 5 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.


On the bottom of the Scorpion is the battery compartment door. Remove it and unplug the rechargeable battery for 30 minutes. Then put it back in and try again.
