Default Solar Charger for Eton FR250

I've got one of each of the emergency radios from Grundig/Eton for
myself and gifts for others.

For fun I put a small solar cell on one of them and plugged it into the
DC port in the back. I haven't cranked the handle in several days so I
guess it works. Just putting the thing near the window on on the
nightstand causes the charging light to light.

Saves wear on the crank for when I really need it.
