Power for the Rototorch regenerates by rotating the lever of the built-in dynamo generator, recharging a nickel metal hydride battery.
As an added bonus, the energy generated from this hand-held unit will also recharge your mobile phone, global positioning system, or any other low wattage electronic device that uses 4.2 or 6 volts.
For each minute of winding at the rate of two rotations per second, the Rototorch will provide 30 minutes of light OR 25 minutes of mobile phone standby time OR 2 minutes of talk time. The Rototorch can store up to 5 hours of light when fully charged. During winding, the Charging Indicator Light will illuminate indicating successful charging.
Recharging Your Mobile Phone:
- Recharge the internal battery by winding for at least one minute.
- Connect the charge cord to the Rototorch first with the switch on the 4.2 V setting.
- Then connect the cord to the device being charged. Wind the Rototorch for 1 minute, however if the device you’re charging does not indicate that it is receiving a charge, set the switch to 6 V and wind for 1 full minute. There is no interference from the dynamo generator to the mobile phone, so a call can be made while charging.
