Freeplay 'Coleman' Windup AM/FM Radio
This product has been discontinued and is no longer available
The Coleman Self-sufficient Radio promises assured listening, anytime, anywhere. Offering a choice of wind-up, solar and rechargeable power, the Coleman incorporates the latest in Freeplay's self-sufficient technology - which means unparalleled sound quality, playtime performance, dependability, and durability.

In a compact, rugged and stylish design, the Coleman AM/FM radio is fitted with a DC input facility to accommodate the AC/DC adapter (supplied) and an earphone socket for personal listening.

The Freeplay Coleman will play for approx. 35 minutes per 30-second wind (normal volume), and can be rewound at any time for as much playtime as you want. An LED charge level indicator tells you the best speed to wind. And in direct sunlight the Coleman will charge itself and play continuously without winding. The internal NiMH battery can be fully charged from the solar panel or the AC/DC adapter. The Freeplay Coleman will give 25 hours playtime, depending on volume, when fully charged.
