charger is designed for the Lithium-Ion battery in your gar-
den product.
 Observe the mains voltage! The voltage of the power
supply must correspond with the data given on the name-
plate of the battery charger. Battery chargers marked with
230 V can also be operated with 220 V.
The battery is equipped with temperature monitoring that al-
lows charging only in the temperature range between 0 °C
and 45 °C. In this manner, a high battery service life is
Note: The battery supplied is partially charged. To ensure full
capacity of the battery, completely charge the battery in the
battery charger before using your power tool for the first time.
The lithium-ion battery can be charged at any time without re-
ducing its service life. Interrupting the charging procedure
does not damage the battery.
The "Electronic Cell Protection (ECP)" protects the lithium-
ion battery against deep discharging. When the battery is run
down or discharged, the garden product is shut off by means
of a protective circuit: The blade no longer moves.
Do not continue to press the On/Off
switch after the garden product has
been automatically switched off. The battery can be dam-

Note: The charging procedure is only possible when the bat-
tery temperature is within the allowable charging tempera-
ture range, see section "Technical Data".

interruption, the charger can warm up. This is not meaningful
and does not indicate a technical defect of the battery charg-
