FAQs

FAQs

The radio will not power on?

Make sure that you have the battery selector switch in the correct position. When using installed AA batteries the switch should be set to "AA Batteries". If using emergency power the switch should be set to rechargeable.

Note:

Rechargeable power is for emergency purposes only. The internal battery is very small and charges from the hand crank only. This charge will only remain for 3-5 minutes and will require the use of the hand crank to recharge.

How do I tune into Weatherband?

  • Rotate the volume dial to the ON position
  • Adjust the tuner selector switch to the WB setting
  • Extend the telescopic antenna
  • Rotate the analog tuner dial until your local weather band can be heard

Note: Analog tuners are very sensitive to adjustments. Use small movements to tune.

What is the Dynamo hand crank used for?

The Dynamo hand crank charges the internal rechargeable battery circuit should the dry cell batteries not be available or are depleted.  While cranking the dynamo it will also provide a low voltage output charge of about 5 volts that will charge MP3 players and many mobile phones.

Device charging with the dynamo is slow and will require the user to keep a consistent rotational tempo; cranking faster will not speed this process up.

Note: The dynamo will recharge the internal battery circuit or slowly charge a connected device, but it cannot do both at the same time.

 

Will the Dynamo charge my iPhone?

No, the iPhone charging circuit requires much more steady flow of current then the hand crank can provide.  Dynamo charge is much too slow for this type of device.

 

How long will a charge last on a dynamo crank charge?

If you cranked the dynamo the recommended 6 revolutions the radio should last 5-8 mins at a moderate volume.  The dynamo is for emergency purposes only, and batteries are recommended for extended periods.

Will the dynamo recharge AA batteries installed into the battery compartment?

No, the dynamo will only recharge the internal rechargeable battery circuit of this device and will not impact the AA batteries installed into the battery compartment.

AM/FM Weather Band Radio & Flashlight - WR182R is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all kinds of emergencies This device is an excellent value for its low price. Even the battery compartment shows intelligence (the lower battery has a push terminal for the negative side of the battery, as a spring would have made it quite difficult to install). The weather radio works fine, the flashlight is modestly bright (saving batteries at a critical time), and the ability to recharge a USB device (typically a phone) is an unusual bonus (and may be a literal lifesaver). It is also handy that they have provided the means of recharging the internal rechargeable battery using an external charger. I have submitted a question as to whether a common 5V supply may be used vs. the 4.5V supply listed, and I hope they will append their reply to this review. Aloha, Steve

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you don't have an Iphone, I recommend this. I back pack and camp a lot. This always goes with me. The light is small but good, the radio picks up good enough. It charges my phone to full, in about 5 min. The AA's don't last as long as I would like and the internal battery could be be a little better, but for the price, I'm really happy with it. Bad part is, it wont charge some of the higher tech phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WeatherX WM/FM/WB radio with flashlight - necessary in the Midwest (unsolicited employee review) This is one of the 1st WeatherX models I've bought. It has a lot of features I need when hunkered down in my basement during one of our Midwestern storms. It is also very useful to take along to listen to radio stations or keep up with the weather.
