8. Use only the supplied charger when charging your tool. The use of any other charger
could damage the drill or create a hazardous condition.
9. Use only one charger when charging.
10. Do not attempt to open the charger. There are no customer serviceable parts inside.
Return to any authorized Black & Decker service center.
11. DO NOT incinerate the tool or batteries even if they are severely damaged or complete-
ly worn out. The batteries can explode in a fire.
12. A small leakage of liquid from the battery cells may occur under extreme usage, charg-
ing or temperature conditions. This does not indicate a failure. However, if the outer
seal is broken and this leakage gets on your skin:
a. Wash quickly with soap and water.
b. Neutralize with a mild acid such as lemon juice or vinegar.
c. If the battery liquid gets in your eyes, flush them with clean water for a minimum of 10
minutes and seek immediate medical attention. MEDICAL NOTE: The liquid is a
25-35% solution of potassium hydroxide.
THE BATTERIES IN YOUR TOOL ARE NOT FULLY CHARGED AT THE FACTORY.
BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE THEM, THOROUGHLY READ ALL OF THE SAFETY
To charge your screwdriver, follow the steps below.
1. Plug the output cord of the charger into the socket in the top half of the screwdriver handle
as shown in Figure 1.
2. Plug the charger into any standard 120 Volt 60 Hz electrical outlet
3. Let the tool charge initially for 9 hours. After the initial charge, under normal usage, your
tool should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours.
CAUTION: When disconnecting the tool from the charger, be sure to unplug the charger
from the outlet first then disconnect the charger cord from the tool. Do not use the tool while
it is connected to the charger.
Important Charging Notes
1. After normal usage, your tool should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the batteries are
run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged. Your tool was
sent from the factory in an uncharged condition. Before attempting to use it, it must be
charged for at least 9 hours.
2. DO NOT charge the batteries 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 batteries. Longest
life and best performance can be obtained if batteries are charged when air tempera-
ture is about 75°F (23,8°C).
3. While charging, the charger may hum and become warm to touch. This is a normal con-
dition and does not indicate a problem.
4. If the batteries do not charge properly—(1) Check current 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 tool to a sur-
rounding air temperature of 40°F (4,5 °C) to 105°F (+40,5 °C). (4) If the receptacle and
temperature are OK, and you do not get proper charging, take or send the tool and
charger to your local Black & Decker service center. See Tools Electric in yellow pages.
5. The tool should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs which
were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE using product with its batteries in a
6. To prolong battery life, avoid leaving on charge for extended periods of time (over 30
days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can significantly
reduce overall battery life.
7. The batteries will reach optimum performance after being cycled 5 times during normal
usage. There is no need to run the batteries down completely before recharging. Normal
usage is the best method of discharging and recharging the batteries.

RÈGLES DE SÉCURITÉ GÉNÉRALES CONCERNANT LES
OUTILS À PILES
AVERTISSEMENT : LIRE, COMPRENDRE ET SUIVRE TOUTES LES DIRECTIVES
précisées ci-dessous afin d'éviter les risques de choc électrique, d'incendie ou de blessure
CONSERVER CES DIRECTIVES
Aire de travail
• Garder l'aire de travail propre et bien éclairée; les établis encombrés et les endroits
sombres sont propices aux accidents.
• Ne pas utiliser les outils électriques dans une atmosphère explosive, comme à
proxim0ité de liquides, de gaz ou de poussières inflammables; le moteur peut créer
des étincelles et enflammer les vapeurs ou les poussières environnantes.
• Tenir les enfants, les visiteurs ou toute autre personne à l'écart lorsqu'on utilise un
outil électrique; les distractions peuvent faire perdre la maîtrise de ce dernier.
Mesures de sécurité – Électricité
• Un outil à piles intégrées ou à bloc-pile externe doit être rechargé seulement au
moyen du chargeur approprié, car un chargeur destiné à une pile particulière peut
entraîner un risque d'incendie lorsqu'il est utilisé avec une autre.
• N'utiliser l'outil à piles qu'avec le bloc-pile désigné, car l'utilisation d'un autre type de
piles peut entraîner un risque d'incendie.
• Rester vigilant en tout temps et faire preuve de jugement lorsqu'on utilise un outil
électrique. Ne pas utiliser l'outil lorsqu'on est fatigué ou sous l'influence de
drogues, d'alcool ou de médicaments, car un moment d'inattention pourrait entraîner
des blessures graves.
CAUTION: The use of any accessory or attachment
