Battery Back-Up Operation

This clock radio is equipped with a memory
holding system that can be powered with
a 9-volt battery ( not included). The power
failure protection circuit will not operate
unless battery is installed.
When normal household power is inter-
rupted, or AC line cord is unplugged, the
battery will power the clock radio to keep
track of time and alarm settings pro-
grammed into memory. When the battery
backup functions, the digital display will
not light, however, the function of alarm
still occurs during the power interruption
if remaining battery power is adequate.
Normal operation will resume after AC
power is restored so you will not have to
reset the time or the alarm.
tially reduced. Memory holding time for a fresh alkaline battery is
approximately 8 hours (if radio or alarm is not operated), which should
take care of short, nuisance-type AC power failures. To preserve
battery life, the radio should remain plugged into an AC outlet. As
batteries get older, their voltage drops and memory may be lost. Be
sure to replace the battery periodically. Battery should be removed
if the radio will be stored for more than one month. Leaky batteries
may badly damage the clock radio.

the time and alarm settings.
