Encore Player


A solar and dynamo powered multi-band radio, MP3 player and recorder designed for off-grid communities.

Featuring a 5 watt speaker which delivers clear, crisp sound, this product is ideal for use by both small and larger groups of people. It also features a mobile phone charger which will fully charge a mobile phone. For reading or close work after dark, there is a bright task light.

The Encore Player's high capacity rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery delivers 24 hours of play-time from a full charge and is powered by a solar panel backed up by Freeplay's patented fail-safe winding mechanism to ensure that even in times of extended bad weather, power is always available.

The Encore Player has been designed for use in educational programmes, by listening groups and in all other programmes where training and information are crucial. The superior quality and volume of the audio output is unique for an independently powered radio.
