CRANECCSOLAROBSERVER Radio Portable Wind Up/Solar Powered AM/FM/Weather 

Crane CC-Solar Observer Portable Wind-Up/Solar Powered AM/FM/Weather Radio

The CC Solar Observer is a C. Crane-designed, wind-up emergency radio with AM/FM and Weather Band. C-Crane has made sure that it has good AM reception and an LED flashlight that is built into the end of the radio.

It can be very important in an emergency to have a way get power to the radio. you can achieve this in various forms:

  • No sun, no problem. You can insert 3 x "AA" alkaline batteries for power (not included)
  • No alkaline batteries, still no problem. Crank the handle moderately for about 10 minutes for one hour of radio play.
  • The easiest way is just put it in the sun. The radio plays for about the same number of hours the radio is in full sun.

In case you're wondering, along with good AM reception, you also get FM and the Weather band - which comes in handy if you're using the radio during a power failure. The CC Observer has a built-in, 2-inch speaker, or you can plug in your headphones for private listening in stereo.

C. Crane have included cell phone adapters for many popular cell phones and PDA’s so you can charge them with the CC Observer. They are unable to supply adapters for any other models at this time. Certain models, like a Blackberry®, can be charged but doing so requires vigorous cranking for a second or two to initialize the charge circuit on the phone. After that initial effort, you can crank it at a normal pace.

  • Moto V3 (Mini-B USB)
