ENGLISH
When the charger detects a battery that is excessively
hot or excessively cold, it automatically starts a Hot/Cold
Pack delay, suspending charging until the battery has
normalised. 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 when the Hot/Cold pack delay is
detected.
Leaving the battery in the charger
The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the
LED glowing indefinitely. The charger will keep the battery
pack fresh and fully charged.

Important charging notes

Longest life and best performance can be obtained if
u
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 .
The charger and battery pack may become warm to touch
u
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
If the battery pack does not charge properly:
u
Check current at receptacle by plugging in a lamp or
u
other appliance
Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light switch
u
which turns power off when you turn out the lights.
Move charger and battery pack to a location where the
u
surrounding air temperature is approximately 65°F
- 75°F (18°- 24°C).
If charging problems persist, take the appliance, battery
u
pack and charger to your local service center.
The battery pack should be recharged when it fails to
u
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.
Foreign materials of a conductive nature such as, but
u
not limited to, steel wool, aluminium 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 freeze or immerse charger in water or any other
u
liquid.
