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. ( ( 9 9 8 8 0 0 2 2 0 0 O O n n l l y y ) ) This charger has an i i n n t t e e r r n n a a l l t t e e m m p p e e r r a a t t u u r r e e l l i i m m i i t t that,
when exceeded, will temporarily stop the full charge current. This is

resume when the temperature falls below the preset limit and will be
indicated by the yellow light turning OFF. The charge time may be
extended beyond the normal 15 minutes. Use the charger in normal
room temperatures whenever possible. To prevent overheating, do not
cover the charger and do not charge battery packs in direct sunlight or
near heat sources.
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 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.
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. Follow the charging procedure. You may
also charge a partially used pack whenever you desire with no adverse
affect on the battery pack.
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.
8. W W A A R R N N I I N N G G : : Don't allow any liquid to get inside charger. Electric shock
9. 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.
10. C C A A U U T T I I O O N N : 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.
This product is not user servicable. There are no user servicable parts inside
the charger. Servicing at an authorized service center is required to avoid
damage to static sensitive internal components.
