Charging Instructions

The player runs on three rechargeable batteries. It will run on its initial charge, but for best results, charge batteries before playing the unit. Fully charged batteries will power the player for about 14 hours. For solar-charging the batteries, position the solar panel on the back of the player towards a light source. Depleted batteries will fully charge in approximately 10 hours of direct sunlight or will trickle-charge under a 60 watt or higher light source. Use only a standard, 200mA/9V plus + polarity power adapter with 1.3mm plug to charge or play the unit. Excessive voltage can cause damage to the player.


If the player won't play, first ensure it is charged according to the charging instructions. If the player is charged, it may require rebooting. To reboot: simultaneously press the On/Off/Stop button and the volume down button, then turn the player on. If you turn the player on and it begins to play in the middle of the message, a pause bookmark is in place. See the pause function instructions to cancel the bookmark.
