IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

GENERAL SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL APPLIANCES
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: Read all instructions before operating product. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
• AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS: Don't use appliances in damp or wet locations. Don't use appliances in the rain.
• KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept at a distance from work area.
• STORE IDLE APPLIANCES INDOORS. When not in use, appliances should be stored indoors in dry, and high or locked-up
place – out of reach of children.
• DON'T FORCE APPLIANCE. It will do the job better and with less likelihood of a risk of injury at the rate for which it was designed.
• USE RIGHT APPLIANCE. Do not use the appliance for any job except that for which it is intended.
• DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be caught in moving parts. Rubber gloves and substantial,
non-skid footwear are recommended when working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
• USE SAFETY GLASSES AND OTHER SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Use safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields, complying
with applicable safety standards and, when needed, a face shield. Also use face or dust mask if operation is dusty. This applies to
all persons in the work area. Also use a hard hat, hearing protection, gloves, safety shoes and dust collection systems when
specified or required. Safety glasses or the like are available at extra cost at your local dealer or Black & Decker Service Center.
• DON'T ABUSE CORD. Never carry appliance by cord or yank it to disconnect from receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges.
• DON'T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
• DISCONNECT APPLIANCES. Disconnect the appliance from the power supply when not in use, before servicing, and when
changing accessories such as blades and the like.
• AVOID UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Don't carry plugged-in appliance with finger on switch. Be sure switch is off when plugging in.
• GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI) protection should be provided on the circuits or outlets to be used.
Receptacles are available having built in GFCI protection and may be used for this measure of safety.
• USE OF ACCESSORIES AND ATTACHMENTS. The use of any accessory or attachment not recommended for use with this
appliance could be hazardous. Note: Refer to the accessory section of this manual for further details.
• STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing. Use common sense. Do not operate tool when you are tired.
• CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully checked to
determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving
parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged
should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction
manual. Have defective switches replaced by authorized service center. Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on and off.
• DO NOT OPERATE portable electric tools near flammable liquids or in gaseous or explosive atmospheres. Motors in these
tools normally spark, and the sparks might ignite fumes.
• OUTDOOR USE EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is used outdoors, use only extension cords intended for use outdoors and so marked.
• EXTENSION CORDS. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy
enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized 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.

WARNING: This product or its power cord contains lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and
birth defect or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
WARNING: BURST HAZARD: Do not use the unit for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home
appliances. These batteries may burst and cause injury to persons and damage property. Use the unit for charging/boosting a
LEAD-ACID battery only. It is not intended to supply power to a low-voltage electrical system other than in a starter-motor
application.
WARNING: SHOCK HAZARD:
• If an extension cord is used, make sure that:
a) the pins of extension cord are the same number, size and shape as those in the charger,
b) the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition,
c) the wire size is large enough for the AC rating of the charger as indicated in the table on page 1.
• Do not operate unit with damaged cord or plug; or if the unit has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged
in any way. Do not disassemble the unit; take it to a qualified service technician when service or repair is required. Incorrect
reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock or fire, and will void warranty.

• To reduce risk of electric shock, disconnect the unit from any power source before attempting maintenance or cleaning.
Turning off controls without disconnecting will not reduce this risk.
• Do not insert foreign objects into the USB outlet.
WARNING: RISK OF EXPLOSIVE GASES
• Working in the vicinity of a lead acid battery is dangerous. Batteries generate explosive gases during normal battery operation.
For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that each time before using the jump-starter you read this manual and follow
instructions exactly.
• To reduce the risk of battery explosion, follow these instructions and those published by the battery manufacturer and
manufacturer of any equipment you intend to use in the vicinity of the battery. Review cautionary markings on these products
and on the engine.
• This equipment employs parts (switches, relays, etc.) that produce arcs or sparks. Therefore, if used in a garage or enclosed
area, the unit MUST be placed not less than 18 inches above the floor.
• THIS UNIT IS NOT FOR USE BY CHILDREN AND SHOULD ONLY BE OPERATED BY ADULTS.
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE:
• Pull cord by plug rather than cord when disconnecting the 120V AC Charging Adapter from the unit.
• NEVER ATTEMPT TO JUMP-START OR CHARGE A FROZEN BATTERY.
• To recharge this unit, use only the supplied AC Charging Adapter.
• Vehicles that have on-board computerized systems may be damaged if vehicle battery is jump-started. Before jump-starting,
read the vehicle's owner's manual to confirm that external-starting assistance
is suitable.
• When working with lead acid batteries, always make sure immediate assistance is available in case of accident or emergency.
• Always have protective eyewear when using this product: contact with battery acid may cause blindness and/or severe burns.
Be aware of first aid procedures in case of accidental contact with battery acid.
• Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin.
• If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water for at least 10 minutes and get medical
attention immediately.
• Never smoke or allow a spark or flame in vicinity of vehicle battery, engine or power station
• Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches when working with a lead acid battery. A lead
acid battery can produce a short circuit current high enough to weld a ring, or similar metal object, to skin, causing a severe
burn.
• Do not wear vinyl clothing when jump-starting a vehicle when jump-starting a vehicle, friction can cause dangerous static-
electrical sparks.
• Jump-start procedures should only be performed in a safe, dry, well-ventilated area.
• Always store battery clamps when not in use. Never touch battery clamps together. This can cause dangerous sparks, power
arcing and/or explosion.
• When using this unit close to the vehicle's battery and engine, stand the unit on a flat, stable surface, and be sure to keep all
clamps, cords, clothing and body parts away from moving vehicle parts.
• Never allow red and black clamps to touch each other or another common metal conductor — this could cause damage to the
unit and/or create a sparking/explosion hazard.
a) For negative-grounded systems, connect the POSITIVE (RED) clamp to the POSITIVE ungrounded battery post and the
NEGATIVE (BLACK) clamp to the vehicle chassis or engine block away from the battery. Do not connect the clamp to the
carburetor, fuel lines or sheet-metal body parts. Connect to a heavy gauge metal part of the frame or engine block.
b) For positive-grounded systems, connect the NEGATIVE (BLACK) clamp to the NEGATIVE ungrounded battery post and the
POSITIVE (RED) clamp to the vehicle chassis or engine block away from the battery. Do not connect the clamp to the
