IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR LI-ION BATTERIES
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.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of injury, basic safety
precautions should always be followed including:
• 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
• 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 LI-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 persists, seek
Burn hazard. Battery liquid may be
flammable if exposed to spark or flame.
• Charge the battery packs only in BLACK+DECKER
LI-ION compatible chargers.
• Never force the battery pack into the charger. Do
not modify the battery pack in any way to fit into a
non-compatible charger as battery pack may rupture
causing serious personal injury.
• 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 (40C˚) (such as outside sheds or
metal buildings in summer).
Never attempt to open the battery pack for
any reason. If battery pack case is cracked or damaged, do
not insert into charger. Do not crush, drop or damage battery
pack. Do not use a battery pack or charger that has received
a sharp blow, been dropped, run over or damaged in any
way (i.e., pierced with a nail, hit with a hammer, stepped
on). Damaged battery packs should be returned to service
center for recycling.
Fire hazard. Do not store or carry
battery so that metal objects can contact exposed battery
terminals. For example, do not place battery in aprons,
pockets, tool boxes, product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with
loose nails, screws, keys, etc. Transporting batteries can
possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently
come in contact with conductive materials such as keys,
coins, hand tools and the like. The US Department of
Transportation Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR)
actually prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on
airplanes (i.e., packed in suitcases and carry-on luggage)
UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So
when transporting individual batteries, make sure that the
battery terminals are protected and well insulated from
materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit.
NOTE: Batteries should not be put in checked baggage.
• When traveling on airlines, be sure to comply with the airline
restrictions on usage of personal electronic devices and Bluetooth
• The out of range alert feature has been designed to act as an
aid to warn against products getting misplaced or stolen. It
is not a security system.
-SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS-
• The connectivity range is up to 100 feet depending on
environment and location.
• The shortwave radio frequency signals of a Bluetooth
device may impair the operation of other electronic and
medical devices (such as pacemakers or hearing aids).
IMPORTANT CHARGING NOTE
Read manuals originally supplied with charger and tool before
charging and using this battery. The batteries should be
recharged when they fail or produce insufficient power on jobs
which were easily done previously. Recharge discharged
batteries as soon as possible after use or battery life
may be greatly diminished. For longest battery life, do
not discharge batteries fully.
