IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using electric tools, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury,
including the following:
Read this instruction manual and the charger instruction manual carefully before use.
Clean only with dry cloth.
Do not block any ventilation opening. Install in accordance with the manufacturer's instruction.
Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
Unplug this apparatus during lighting storms or when unused for long periods of time.
A battery operated radio with integral batteries or a separate battery pack must be recharged only with the specified charger for the battery.
A charger that may be suitable for one type of battery may create a risk of fire when used with another battery.
Use battery operated radio only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other batteries may create a risk of fire.
When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects like: paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws, or other small metal
objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may cause sparks, burns, or a
10. Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is grounded.
11. Use with charger Model DC10WD or DC10SB.
12. WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture and objects filled with liquids, such
as vases, should not be placed on this apparatus.
13. TO COMPLETELY DISCONNECT THIS APPARATUS FROM THE AC MAINS, DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY CORD PLUG
FROM THE AC RECEPTACLE.
14. THE MAINS PLUG OF THE POWER SUPPLY CORD SHALL REMAIN READILY ACCESSIBLE.
15. WARNING: DO NOT EXPOSE BATTERIES OR BATTERY PACK TO EXCESSIVE HEAT SUCH AS SUNSHINE, FIRE OR THE LIKE.
16. CAUTION: DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED. REPLACE ONLY WITH MAKITA BATTERY MODEL
The Lightning Flash with arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated
"dangerous voltage" within the product enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the users to the presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the product.
Read these instructions.
Keep these instructions.
Heed all warnings.
Follow all instructions.
Do not use this apparatus near water.
Clean only with dry cloth.
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacture's instructions.

Installing or removing battery cartridge (Fig. 2)
CAUTION: Always switch off the radio before installing or removing of the battery cartridge.
CAUTION: Hold the radio and the battery cartridge firmly when installing or removing battery cartridge. Failure to hold the radio
and the battery cartridge firmly may cause them to slip off your hands and result in damage to the radio and battery cartridge and a personal
To remove the battery cartridge (19), slide it from the radio while sliding the button (20) on the front of the cartridge.
To install the battery cartridge, align the tongue on the battery cartridge with the groove in the housing and slip it into place. Insert it all the way
until it locks in place with a little click. If you can see the red indicator (21) on the upper side of the button, it is not locked completely.
