b. An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for
safety, and to prevent loss of power and overheating. The smaller the gauge number of
the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable; that is, 16 gauge has more capacity than
18 gauge. When using more than one extension to make up the total length, be sure
each extension contains at least the minimum wire size.
Minimum Gauge for cord Sets
(0-7,6m) (7,6-15,2m) (15,2-30,4m) (30,4-45,7m)
(0-15,2m) (15,2-30,4m) (30,4-60,9m) (60,9-91,4m)

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.
charging Procedure
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
depleted condition.
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.

the RBRc™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) Seal on the nickel-
cadmium battery (or battery pack) indicates that the costs to recycle the battery
(or battery pack) at the end of its useful life have already been paid by Black &
Decker. In some areas, it is illegal to place spent nickel-cadmium batteries in
the trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC program provides an
environmentally conscious alternative.
RBRC in cooperation with Black & Decker and other battery users, has established
programs in the United States and Canada to facilitate the collection of spent nickel-
cadmium batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural resources by
returning the spent nickel-cadmium battery to an authorized Black & Decker service center
or to your local retailer for recycling. You may also contact your local recycling center for
information on where to drop off the spent battery, or call 1-800-8-BAtteRy.
Battery Removal
Before attempting to disassemble this tool, turn it on and run it in either direction until it stops to
ensure a complete discharge of the batteries. Using a phillips screwdriver, remove the screw
in the product housing shown in figure 4 and remove the cap from the end of the tool. Lift the
batteries out and pull off the terminal clips. See "Service Information" for battery replacement.
