The TV comes with a rechargeable internal battery, a 12 volt car
cord and a house current adapter. I have run my set for 4 hours on the same charge over a couple of weeks. Just make sure you charge
the set over night before using, green light = good to go, a red light =needs a charge.

Question

Does the tv reception sound/picture when constantly driving?

My husband is an over the road truck driver, he wants a tv that he can listen to while driving and watch if he has to wait somewhere.
He wants to be able to watch/listen to the "News" (CNBC, FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC#, does the tv pick up the "major networks or news stations"?

In reading through the Q&A's I've seen mention of "local" or "near by" #25 mi# stations/channels. Not sure what that means exactly...
Does that mean a "local broadcasting network station" that exsists in that area? OR... Does that mean it will pick up whatever channel/station lets say FOX is in that area?

I've seen different answers for using the tv while traveling.... Yes, No, Some stations, fading stations, and local stations..... Which one is it for someone traveling all different states, please????.... Thank You.

If not this tv, is there a tv that can receive major network stations while driving w/o a connection?

answer 2
The supplied antenna is insufficent to pick up stations more than 25-30 miles away, depending on the location. If you are in a big city, you might get better reception, depending on where the transmitter is. If there is a building between you and the transmitter than the signal will be severely attenuated. If you are 10 miles away from a transmitter and there is flat ground between you and the transmitter you will get an excellent signal.
In a moving vehicle, which it is against the law for the driver to watch any video device, it would require constant retuning to get stations, and at times there would be none, and at other times there would be several.
Get him a satellite radio, he can hear all the news and sports he wants.

Depending on your location, high definition channels are over the air, so hawaii should be equipped with this signal. Once you start up the tv, it must be scanned for HD over the air channels, this will determine what is available in your location. I'm in Texas, so where I work location, I've scanned over 31 channels.

Question

power and antenna

how much power output does the adapter put out? It would be stamped on the plug in adapter. I know you plug this into the wall (110-120 volt). Reason I am asking this is because I will be taking this camping and will charge it up with a soar power supply

Secondly. can this be hooked up to a regular cable coax cable. is an adapter included to do this?

Power Supply is a 120v to 12vdc adapter. It also uses a Cigarette Lighter Adapter for in car use or charging. for solar, you'd need something to put out about 12Vdc @ 1500ma with a center positive connector.

It has a built in digital tuner so it can be hooked up directly to cable without a converter box. I made a homemade HDTV antenna and pick up 35+ channels (transmitters are appx 35-50 miles away from me. Hope that helps

It comes with both a Car DC adapter and an AC/DC wall 120-240 V adapter.
It is a 120-240v; 50-60Hz; 1.0A AC and 1500mA DC adapter. So the draw is only 1.0A max.

Wall adapter output is 9 V at 2.0 A. It comes with a lighter style plug to use 12V from car.
Coax cable will attach directly. I use this at home and the telescoping antenna away.

You can buy any set of rabbit ear type antenna from either E-Bay or Amazon for around $10. It will work much better than the one that comes with the unit if you want to go cheap, and still stay very portable.

The opposite very expensive extreme would be to buy a giant Yagi outdoor antenna with a mast and rotator, but I doubt you want that with a cheap tv like this.

It depends on how far your TV stations are, how high up you live above surrounding land or buildings and if stations are all UHF or some on VHF. Go to www.AntennaWeb.org enter your ZIP code or address and it will tell you how many stations, how far they are, that you should be able to receive. Radio Shack has a very good 'electronic antenna' (for it's size) that will pull in stations 40 miles away but does not receive VHF frequency stations because of it's small size, about 6" square. They do have a good return policy if it does not work for you. PS - There is no such thing as 'HD Digital Antenna' as antennas don't care if its analog or digital, SD or HD, or radio, etc.
