chargers.
Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on charger,
WARNING:
battery pack, and product using battery pack.
Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get inside charger.
WARNING:
Burn hazard. To reduce the risk of injury, charge only designated
Black & Decker batteries. Other types of batteries may burst causing personal injury and
CAUTION:
damage.
Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged in to the power supply,
the charger can be shorted by foreign material. Foreign materials of a conductive nature
CAUTION:
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.
• DO NOT attempt to charge the battery pack with any chargers other than the ones in
WARNING:
this manual. The charger and battery pack are specifically designed to work together.
• These chargers are not intended for any uses other than charging designated Black &
Decker rechargeable batteries. Any other uses may result in risk of fire, electric shock or
electrocution.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. This will reduce risk of
damage to electric plug and cord.
• Make sure that cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or
otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
• Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely necessary. Use of improper
extension cord could result in risk of fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
• 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 wire
size.

• 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. The charger is ventilated through slots
in the top and the bottom of the housing.
• 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 a risk of electric shock, electrocution or fire.
• Disconnect the charger from the outlet before attempting any cleaning. This will reduce
the risk of electric shock. Removing the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect 2 chargers together.
• The charger is designed to operate on standard household electrical power
(120 Volts). Do not attempt to use it on any other voltage.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTION FOR BATTERY PACKS
For safe operation, read this manual and manuals originally supplied
with tool before using the charger.
WARNING:
The battery pack is not fully charged out of the carton. Before using the battery pack and
charger, read the safety instructions below. Then follow charging procedures outlined.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
• Do not incinerate the battery pack even if it is severely damaged or is completely worn
out. The battery pack can explode in a fire. Toxic fumes and materials are created when
battery packs are burned.
• Do not charge or use battery in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Inserting or removing the battery from the charger may
ignite the dust or fumes.
• If battery contents come into contact with the skin, immediately wash area with mild
soap and water. If battery liquid gets into the eye, rinse water over the open eye for 15 minutes
or until irritation ceases. If medical attention is needed, the battery electrolyte for Li-ion
batteries is composed of a mixture of liquid organic carbonates and lithium salts.
• Contents of opened battery cells may cause respiratory irritation. Provide fresh air. If
symptoms persist, seek medical attention.
Burn hazard. Battery liquid may be flammable if exposed to spark or flame.
• Charge the battery packs only in Black & Decker chargers.
WARNING:
• DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other liquids. This may cause premature cell failure.
• Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature may
reach or exceed 105°F (40˚C) (such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason. If battery pack
case is cracked or damaged, do not insert into charger. Do not crush, drop or damage battery
WARNING:
pack. Do not use a battery pack or charger that has received a sharp blow, been dropped,
run over or damaged in any way (i.e., pierced with a nail, hit with a hammer, stepped on).
Damaged battery packs should be returned to service center for recycling.
Fire hazard. Do not store or carry battery so that metal objects can
contact exposed battery terminals. For example, do not place battery in aprons, pockets,
WARNING:
tool boxes, product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with loose nails, screws, keys, etc. Transporting
batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently come in
contact with conductive materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like. The US
Department of Transportation Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually prohibit
transporting batteries in commerce or on airplanes (i.e., packed in suitcases and carry-on
luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So when transporting
individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well insulated
from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit. NOTE: LI-ION batteries
should not be put in checked baggage.
STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
1. The best storage place is one that is cool and dry away from direct sunlight and excess
heat or cold.
2. Long storage will not harm the battery pack or charger.
WALL MOUNTING
This charger is designed to be wall mountable or to sit upright on a table or work surface.
If wall mounting, locate charger within reach of an electrical outlet. Mount securely using
drywall screws at least 1 inch (25.4mm) long, screwed into wood to an optimal depth leaving
approximately 7/32 inches (5.5mm) of the screw exposed.
CHARGING PROCEDURE
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate outlet before insert-
ing the battery pack.
2. Insert the battery pack into the charger as shown in fig-
ure A.
3. The green LED will flash indicating that the battery
is being charged.
4. The completion of charge is indicated by the
green LED remaining on continuously. The pack is
fully charged and may be used at this time or left on
the charger.
Recharge discharged batteries as soon as possible after use or battery life may be
greatly diminished. For longest battery life, do not discharge batteries fully. It is recom-
mended that the batteries be recharged after each use.
FLASH CHARGE CYCLE (L2AFCBST ONLY)
When the flash button is pushed the charger "boosts" the charge current for 10 minutes and
starts blinking the blue LED while the green LED is turned off.
After 10 minutes the blue LED will switch off and the green LED will begin to blink until the bat-
tery pack is fully charged. Once the charge cycle is complete, the green LED will remain on
continuously.
CHARGER DIAGNOSTICS
This charger is designed to detect certain problems that can arise with the battery packs or
the power source. Problems are indicated by one LED flashing in different patterns.
BAD BATTERY
The charger can detect a weak or damaged battery. The red LED flashes in the pattern in-
dicated on the label. If you see this bad battery blink pattern, do not continue to charge the
battery. Return it to a service center or a collection site for recycling.
HOT/COLD PACK DELAY
When the charger detects a battery that is excessively hot or excessively cold, it auto-
matically starts a Hot/Cold Pack Delay, suspending charging until the battery has nor-
malized. After this happens, the charger automatically switches to the Pack Charging
mode. This feature ensures maximum battery life. The red LED flashes in the pattern
indicated on the label.
LEAVING THE BATTERY IN THE CHARGER
The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the green LED glowing indefinitely.
The charger will keep the battery pack fresh and fully charged.
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. 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.
3. If the battery pack does not charge properly:
a. Check current at receptacle by plugging in a lamp or other appliance
b. Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light switch which turns power off
when you turn out the lights.
c. Move charger and battery pack to a location where the surrounding air
temperature is approximately 65°F - 75°F (18°- 24°C).
d. If charging problems persist, take the tool, battery pack and charger to your
local service center.
4. The battery pack should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs
which were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE to use under these conditions. Fol-
low the charging procedure. You may also charge a partially used pack whenever you desire
with no adverse affect on the battery pack.
5. 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 un-
plug the charger from the power supply when there is no battery pack in the cavity. Unplug
charger before attempting to clean.
6. Do not freeze or immerse charger in water or any other liquid.
Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get inside charger. Never attempt to
open the battery pack for any reason. If the plastic housing of the battery pack breaks or
WARNING:
cracks, return to a service center for recycling.
