The Companion is a radio, a flashlight, and a cellphone charger, all in a super-compact unit! It has a solar panel and a crank so you'll never run out of power, and you'll never have to buy disposable batteries.
This compact, robust radio boasts a rubberized body with recessed control knobs for impact resistance and comfort. Big on functionality, but small in size, the Companion features an AM/FM radio (with earphone socket for personal listening); a flashlight with 3 LEDs and an integrated cell phone charger, which means that you’ll never be out of touch because of dead batteries.
Offering a choice of self-charge, solar and external recharge power options, the Companion delivers complete independence from wall power or disposable batteries. A 1-minute wind gives you 20 minutes of radio listening at normal volume, or 30 minutes of light, and you can wind some more at any time for as much play time / shine time as you want. An LED charge level indicator tells you the best speed to wind.
In direct sunlight, the Companion will charge itself and play continuously. The internal NiMH battery can be fully charged from either the solar panel or an external charging adapter (any standard mini-USB AC charger will do), to give 12 hours of play time (depending on volume), or 16 hours of shine time.
