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 that 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.
