CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK (FIGURE B)
THE BATTERY PACK IS NOT FULLY CHARGED AT THE FACTORY. BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE THE BATTERY PACK, THOROUGHLY READ ALL OF THE
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
The charger is designed to use standard household 120 volt 60 Hz power.
1. Plug the charger (7) into any standard 120 Volt 60 Hz electrical outlet. NOTE: Do not
charge by means of an engine generator or DC power source. Use only 120V AC
2. Slide the charger onto the battery pack (5) as shown in figure B and let the battery
pack charge initially for 9 hours. After the initial charge, under normal usage, your
battery pack should be fully charged in 3 to 9 hours.
3. Unplug charger, and remove the battery pack. Place the battery pack in the tool and
be certain that it is inserted fully into the tool cavity until it "clicks" into place.
NOTE: To remove the battery pack from the drill, press down on the release button (6)
on the back of the battery pack (figure C) and slide out.
IMPORTANT CHARGING NOTES
1. After normal usage, your battery pack should be fully charged in 3 to 9 hours. If the
battery pack is run-down completely, it may take up to 9 hours to become fully
charged. Your battery pack 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 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.
Longest life and best performance can be obtained if battery pack is charged when air
temperature is about 75°F.(24°C).
3. While charging, the charger may hum and become warm to touch. This is a normal
condition and does not indicate a problem.
4. If the battery pack does 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
battery pack to a surrounding 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 battery pack and charger to your local Black & Decker service center. See
Tools Electric in yellow pages.
5. The battery pack should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs
which were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE using product with its battery
pack in a depleted condition.
6. To prolong battery life, avoid leaving the battery pack 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 battery pack 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.
SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS: DRILLS
1. Hold drill firmly with one hand on the grip and the other hand on the bottom of the
battery pack.
2. When attaching accessories in the drill chuck, hand tighten the keyless chuck firmly.
WARNING: Drill may stall (if overloaded or improperly used) causing a twist.
Always expect the stall. Grip the drill firmly with both hands to control the twisting
action and prevent loss of control which could cause personal injury. If a stall does
occur, release the trigger immediately and determine the reason for the stall
before re-starting.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
