Rechargeable 2600mAh Battery: The Midland E+Ready Emergency Crank
Radio (ER310) is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (3.7V/2600mAH) that provides up
to 32 hours of radio operation. The long-life Li-Ion battery is replaceable. The
lithium-ion battery can be charged via the emergency radio's integrated
solar-panel, built-in hand crank or a USB power source.
- Solar Panel: Thanks to the integrated solar-panel, you can
recharge the internal lithium- ion battery from direct sunlight. One hour of
solar charging provides up to 45 minutes of radio use.
- Hand Crank: You can also recharge the radio during a power outage
or anytime away from a power source with the built-in hand crank. One minute
of hand cranking provides up to 9 minutes of radio use.
- USB Power Source: The ER310 features a microUSB port and comes
with a 30" microUSB-to-USB charging cable to charge the emergency radio from
a USB power source (sold separately). It takes approximately 5.5 hours to
fully recharge the battery via USB.
Note: In addition to the rechargeable lithium-ion battery,
the Midland ER310 offers a battery back-up power option using six "AA" batteries
Weather Alert Radio: The NOAA/NWS (National Oceanic Atmospheric
Administration and the National Weather Service) operates a system of weather
and hazard alert broadcasts covering most of the United States. Typical
broadcasts are within reception distance of 25-50 miles of the weather station.
The ER310 can receive broadcasts up to 50 miles from the weather station
depending on your location and conditions of weather, terrain, etc. If reception
is not good, try a different location to find a spot of improved reception. If
indoors, placement near a window usually improves reception.
Note: If a weather broadcast cannot be heard on any of the 7 channels,
contact your local NOAA/NWS office and verify the closest station is on
