Chinese Manuals: A horror story

Recently, someone gave me a solar charger because they didnt want it. When I opened it, I, as anyone should, got out the directions and began reading. Unfortunately, the directions were only half English, and even that was terribly written. Like, they could at LEAST use some spell check!

So I took the liberty of typing them, word for word, to show you how ridiculous it really is. JK, I used OCR and even second guessed my printer, because some things were just THAT bad.

So read, and enjoy, as your brain cells slowly decrease. The highlighted words are the most noticeable.
