You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
With the low noise C. Crane AC Adapter you can power the CC Skywave or charge NiMH batteries while they are in the radio. The CC Skywave will recharge a set of 2 AA NiMH batteries in less than 10 hours. Never mix batteries with different chemistries, or mix old and new batteries together in the radio.
You can power your radio or charge NiMH type batteries with the USB jack connected to a computer or USB power adapter.
Please note when powering the CC Skywave:
A computer or non-approved power adapter may generate too much interference on the AM, SW, and AIR bands. The FM band should not have as much interference when connected. For best reception, we recommend using the C.Crane power adapter or AA batteries.
