Q: Hello,
How play time do you get for 1 minute of winding?
Thanks

Q: Does this run off mains power as well, for home use? Or will the solar panel charge through a sunny window? (Apologies for my ignorance if this is a basic question). Cheersrnrn

A: This radio can be charged via the USB port which will take around 8 hours to achieve full charge (although please note that a USB cable is not provided). The solar panel will charge when placed in direct sunlight through a window, but it will take considerably longer to achieve full charge. I hope this helps, Jo.
