WARNING:
attempt to charge the battery pack with
any chargers other than the ones in this
manual. The charger and battery pack are
specifically designed to work together.
• These chargers are not intended for any
uses other than charging designated
BLACK+DECKER rechargeable batteries.
Any other uses may result in risk of fire,
electric shock or electrocution.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Pull by plug rather than cord when
disconnecting charger. This will reduce
risk of damage to electric plug and cord.
• Make sure that cord is located so that it
will not be stepped on, tripped over, or
otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
• Do not use an extension cord unless
it is absolutely necessary. Use of
improper extension cord could result in
risk of fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
• Do not operate charger with damaged
cord or plug — have them replaced
immediately.
• Do not operate charger if it has
received a sharp blow, been dropped,
or otherwise damaged in any way. Take
it to an authorized service center.
• Do not disassemble charger; take it to
an authorized service center when service
or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly
may result in a risk of electric shock,
electrocution or fire.
• Disconnect the charger from the outlet
before attempting any cleaning. This will
reduce the risk of electric shock. Removing
the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect 2 chargers
together.
• The charger is designed to operate on
standard household electrical power
(120 Volts). Do not attempt to use it on
any other voltage.

EXTENSION CORD

Make sure your extension cord is in good
condition. When using an extension cord be
sure it is heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. An undersized extension cord
will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss
of power and overheating. The following table
shows the correct size to use depending on
cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller
the gage number, the heavier the cord.
• An extension cord must have adequate
wire size (AWG or American Wire
Gauge) for safety. 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

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTION

FOR BATTERY PACKS
WARNING:
read this manual and manuals originally supplied
with tool before using the charger.
The battery pack is not fully charged out of
the carton. Before using the battery pack and
charger, read the safety instructions below.
Then follow charging procedures outlined.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
• Do not incinerate the battery pack even
if it is severely damaged or is completely
worn out. The battery pack can explode
in a fire. Toxic fumes and materials are
created when battery packs are burned.
• Do not charge or use battery in
explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gases or
dust. Inserting or removing the battery from
the charger may ignite the dust or fumes.
• If battery contents come into contact
with the skin, immediately wash area
with mild soap and water. If battery liquid
gets into the eye, rinse water over the
open eye for 15 minutes or until irritation
ceases. If medical attention is needed, the
battery electrolyte for Lithium-Ion batteries
is composed of a mixture of liquid organic
carbonates and lithium salts.
• Contents of opened battery cells may
cause respiratory irritation. Provide
fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek
medical attention.
WARNING:
Battery liquid may be flammable if exposed to
spark or flame.
• Charge the battery packs only in
BLACK+DECKER chargers.
• DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other
liquids. This may cause premature cell failure.
• Do not store or use the tool and battery
pack in locations where the temperature
may reach or exceed 105°F (40˚C) (such as
outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
