This regulated 5V charging adapter is specially designed to work with the CC Observer and CC Solar Observer radios. The adapter is not required to make either radio operate but it does make charging the internal battery pack quicker and more convenient over using the hand-crank or solar power.

The dynamo radio should never be ordered without this charger module. I gave the dynamo radio a three star rating because it is falsely advertised without stating that this charger is required for dynamo use to put an initial charge on the battery and then to recharge it with this charger occasionally.

This add-on to a true emergency "people-powered" radio is great to have in anyone's "prepper mode" mentality check list. For now, when the "good old times" of when the power grid is up and operational, I can just plug it into the surge protector in the wall and let my solar cells charge it with the free electricity from the sun!!! GOD, I just love it now when PG&E here in California MUST send me a check each month for the excess power I now generate.

I bought this to use with the CC Solar Radio. It adequately recharges, I guess - as there is no way to know when the recharging is complete. As the radio's batteries can be damaged by overcharging, this is a concern.Also, the adapter heats up when plugged in - whether or not it is connected to the radio. So, you have to disconnect it from both the radio and the plug-in.Just wanted others to know this to make an informed purchase decision.

AC adapter works as stated. Once the battery pack is charged, unplug it and the pack will last longer.

  • Can the CC Solar Observer be operated using the optional AC power adapter?

    Yes, but you if you plan on using the optional charging adapter for days to power the radio, we recommend unplugging the battery pack. Constantly charging the battery pack for more then 12 hours at a time will shorten its life.
  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
    — David C., Raleigh, NC
  • I have had only one, thank the lord, occasion to use this in and emergency situation and it worked flawlessly. Only one in the area with radio for two days of power loss... Thank you CCrane!!
    — Vernon P., Dufur, OR
  • This radio is totally fantastic!!! It will provide service in any condition and works as engineered and advertised. I am going to order more units for all family members.
    — Glen B., Bethlehem, PA
  • This radio is wonderful. Small but powerful. Several years of service and no problems.
    — William B., Litchfield, IL
  • Just received this little jewel... did not open the manual and I was listening to NPR within minutes... no kidding. I'm a radio guy and the audio is great and look forward to a lot of great listening.
