Important Safety Instructions
instructions for SPMVC battery charger.
• Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on (1) charger, (2)
battery pack, and (3) product using battery pack.
DANGER: 120 volts present at charging terminals. Do not probe with conductive objects.
Danger of electric shock or electrocution.
DANGER: If battery pack case is cracked or damaged, do not insert into charger. Danger
of electric shock or electrocution.
DANGER: Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason. If the plastic housing of
the battery pack breaks or cracks, return to a service center for recycling.
WARNING: Donʼt allow any liquid to get inside charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: To reduce risk of injury, charge only Black & Decker rechargeable batteries.
Other types of batteries may burst, causing personal injury and damage.
• To facilitate the cooling of the battery pack after use, avoid placing the charger or battery
pack in a warm environment such as in a metal shed, or an uninsulated trailer.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Black & Decker may result in risk of
fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
• This charger is not intended for any uses other than charging Black & Decker rechargeable
batteries. Any other uses may result in risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
• To reduce risk of damage to electric plug and cord, pull by plug rather than cord when
• Make sure cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress.
• An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of improper
extension cord could result in risk of fire, electric shock, or electrocution. If an extension
cord must be used, make sure:
• That the pins on plug of extension cord are the same number, size and shape of those
of plug on charger.
• That extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition and the wire size
is large enough for AC ampere rating of charger as specified below.
An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for
safety. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that
is, 16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge. When using more than one extension to
make up the total length, be sure each individual extension contains at least the minimum
Recommended Minimum Wire Size for Extension Cords

• The charger is ventilated through slots in the housing. Do not place any object on top of
charger or place the charger on a soft surface that might block the ventilation slots and result
in excessive internal heat. Place the charger in a position away from any heat source.
• Do not operate charger with damaged cord or plug — have them replaced immediately.
• Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged
in any way; take it to an authorized service center.
• Do not disassemble charger; take it to an authorized service center when service or repair is
required. Incorrect reassembly may result in risk of electric shock, electrocution or fire.
• The charger is designed to operate on standard120 VAC, 60Hz household electrical power.
Do not attempt to use it on any other voltage.
• To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug charger from outlet before attempting any cleaning.
Removing the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect 2 chargers together.
• DO NOT store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature may reach
or exceed 105°F (such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
PRINTED IN CHINA
Your charger is designed to use standard 120 volt AC, 60 Hz power. Do not use DC or any
other voltage. Charge time is 90 to 120 minutes depending on battery pack type and condition.
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate outlet.
2. Insert the battery pack into the charger (Fig.1) . Be sure the pack is fully
seated in the charger. The red (charging) light will blink continuously indicating
that the charging process has started.
3. The completion of charge will be indicated by the red light remaining ON
continuously. The pack is fully charged and may be used at this time or left in the
These chargers are designed to detect certain problems that can arise with battery packs which
would be indicated by the red light flashing at a fast rate. If this occurs, re-insert battery pack. If
problem persists, try a different battery pack to determine if the charger is OK. If the new pack
charges correctly, then the original pack is defective and should be returned to a service center for
recycling. If the new battery pack gives the same trouble indication as the original, have charger
tested at an authorized service center.
Wall Mounting (Figure 2)
A hole is provided in the center of the charger for
mounting on a vertical surface.
Leaving the Battery Pack in the Charger
The charger and battery pack can be left connected
with the red light glowing indefinitely. The charger will
keep the battery pack fresh and fully charged.
NOTE: A battery pack will slowly lose its charge when kept out of the charger. If the battery
pack has not been kept on maintenance charge, it may need to be recharged before use. A
battery pack may also slowly lose its charge if left in a charger that is not plugged into an
appropriate AC source.
Important Charging Notes
1. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the battery pack is charged when the
air temperature is between 65°F and 75°F (18°- 24°C). DO NOT charge the battery pack in
an air temperature below +40°F(+4.5°C), or above +105°F (+40.5°C). This is important and
will prevent serious damage to the battery pack.
2. The charger and battery pack may become warm to touch while charging. This is a
normal condition, and does not indicate a problem.
3. If the battery pack does not charge properly — (1) Check power at receptacle by
plugging in a lamp or other appliance. (2) Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light
switch which turns power off when you turn out the lights. (3) Move charger and
battery pack to a location where the surrounding air temperature is approximately
65°F - 75°F (18°- 24°C). (4) If charging problems persist, take or send the tool, battery
pack and charger to your local service center.
4. The battery pack should be recharged when it does not produce sufficient power on jobs
which were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE use under these conditions.
Follow the charging procedures. You may also charge a partially used pack whenever you
desire with no adverse affect on the battery pack.
5. Black & Decker battery packs that are labeled "NiMH" should only be used with chargers
labeled "NiMH" or "NiCd/NiMH."
6. Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged into the power supply, the exposed
charging contacts inside the charger can be shorted by foreign material. Foreign
materials of a conductive nature such as, but not limited to, steel wool, aluminum foil, or
any buildup of metallic particles should be kept away from charger cavities. Always unplug
the charger from the power supply when there is no battery pack in the cavity. Unplug
charger before attempting to clean.
7. Do not immerse charger in water or any other liquid.
