Safety Warnings and Instructions: Charging the Drill
1. This manual contains important safety and operating instructions.
2. Before using battery charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on (1)
battery charger, (2) battery, and (3) product using battery.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, charge only Black & Decker Power Packs.
Other types of batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage.
4. Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
5. Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Black & Decker may result in a risk
of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
6. To reduce risk of damage to electric plug and cord, pull by plug rather than cord when
7. Make sure cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress.
8. An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of improper
extension cord could result in a risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
a. Two-wire cords can be used with 2-wire or 3-wire extension cords. Only round jacketed
extension cords should be used, and we recommend that they be listed by Underwriters
Laboratories (U.L.). If the extension is to be used outside, the cord must be suitable for
outdoor use. Any cord marked for outdoor use can also be used for indoor work. The
letters "W" or "WA" on the cord jacket indicate that the cord is suitable for outdoor use.
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.

9. Use only the supplied charger when charging your drill. The use of any other charger
could damage the drill or create a hazardous condition.
10. Use only one charger when charging.
11. Do not attempt to open the charger or the drill. There are no customer serviceable parts
inside. Return to any authorized Black & Decker service center.
12. DO NOT incinerate the drill or battery packs even if they are severely damaged or
completely worn out. The batteries can explode in a fire.
13. Do not incinerate the batteries. They can explode in a fire. A small leakage of liquid from
the battery cells may occur under extreme usage, charging 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 the Power Pack
THE BATTERIES IN YOUR POWER PACK ARE NOT FULLY CHARGED AT THE
FACTORY. BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE THEM, THOROUGHLY READ ALL OF
THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
The charger is designed to use standard household 120 volt 60 Hz power.
1. Plug the charger into any standard 120 Volt 60 Hz electrical outlet.
2. Slide the charger onto the battery pack as shown in Figure 1 and let the battery charge
initially for 9 hours. After the initial charge, under normal usage, your power pack should
be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours.
3. Unplug charger, and remove the battery pack. Place the battery in the tool and be
certain that it is inserted fully into the tool cavity until it "clicks" into place.
NOTE: To remove the battery from the drill, press down on the release button on the back of
the battery (Figure 2) and slide out.
IMPORTANT CHARGING NOTES
1. After normal usage, your power pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the
power pack is run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged.
Your power pack 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 power pack in an air temperature below 40°F or above 105°F. This
is important and will prevent serious damage to the power pack. Longest life and best
performance can be obtained if power pack is charged when air temperature is about 75°F.
3. While charging, the charger may hum and become warm to touch. This is a normal
condition and does not indicate a problem.
4. If the power pack does 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 power pack to
a surrounding air temperature of 40°F to 105°F. (4) If the receptacle and temperature
are OK, and you do not get proper charging, take or send the power pack and charger
to your local Black & Decker service center. See Tools Electric in yellow pages.
5. The power pack should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs
which were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE using product with its power
pack in a depleted condition.
6. To prolong power pack life, avoid leaving the power pack on charge for extended periods
of time (over 30 days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can
significantly reduce overall power pack life.

7. The power pack 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.
Safety Warnings and Instructions: Drills
1. Hold drill firmly to control the twisting action of the drill. See Figure 3.
2. When attaching accessories in the drill chuck, hand tighten the keyless chuck firmly.
WARNING: Drill may stall (if overloaded or improperly used) causing a twist. Always
expect the stall. Grip the drill firmly to control the twisting action (see Fig. 3) and prevent loss
of control which could cause personal injury. If a stall does occur, release the trigger
immediately and determine the reason for the stall before re-starting.
TRIGGER SWITCH & REVERSING BUTTON (FIGURE 4)
The drill is turned ON and OFF by pulling and releasing the trigger switch shown in Figure 4.
The farther the trigger is depressed, the higher the speed of the drill. A forward/reverse
control button determines the direction of the tool and also serves as a lock off button. To
select forward rotation, release the trigger switch and depress the forward/reverse control
button. To select reverse, depress the forward/reverse control button the opposite direction.
The center position of the control button locks the tool in the off position. When changing the
position of the control button, be sure the trigger is released.
TORQUE CONTROL (FIGURE 5)
This tool is fitted with a collar to select the operating mode and to set the torque for
tightening screws. Large screws and hard workpiece materials require a higher torque
setting than small screws and soft workpiece materials.
For drilling in wood, metal and plastics, set the collar to the drilling position symbol
For screwdriving, set the collar to the desired setting. If you do not yet know the
appropriate setting, proceed as follows:
Set the collar to the lowest torque setting.
Tighten the first screw.
If the clutch ratchets before the desired result is achieved, increase the collar setting and
continue tightening the screw. Repeat until you reach the correct setting. Use this setting
for the remaining screws.
KEYLESS CHUCK (FIGURE 6)
To insert a drill bit or other accessory:
1. Grasp the rear half of the chuck with one hand and use your other hand to rotate the
front half in the counterclockwise direction, as viewed from the chuck end.
2. Insert the bit or other accessory fully into the chuck, and tighten securely by holding the
rear half of the chuck and rotating the front portion in the clockwise direction as viewed
from the chuck end.
Do not attempt to tighten drill bits (or any other accessory) by gripping the
front part of the chuck and turning the tool on. Damage to the chuck and personal injury may
occur when changing accessories.
For driving fasteners, the reversing button should be pushed to the left. Use reverse (button
pushed to the right) for removing fasteners. When moving from forward to reverse, or vice
versa, always release the trigger switch first.
ON BOARD BIT STORAGE
A bit storage slot is built-in to the area just above the battery. Use the magnetic bit tip holder
in conjunction with the 1 inch bit tips stored in the removable rubber cap on the end of the drill.
• Use sharp drill bits only.
• Support and secure work properly, as instructed in the Safety Instructions.
• Use appropriate and required safety equipment, as instructed in the Safety Instructions.
• Secure and maintain work area, as instructed in the Safety Instructions.
• Run the drill very slowly, using light pressure, until the hole is started enough to keep the
drill bit from slipping out of it.
• Apply pressure in a straight line with the bit. Use enough pressure to keep the bit biting but
not so much as to stall the motor or deflect the bit.
• Hold the drill firmly with two hands to control its twisting action.
• DO NOT CLICK THE TRIGGER OF A STALLED DRILL OFF AND ON IN AN ATTEMPT TO
START IT. DAMAGE TO THE DRILL CAN RESULT.
• Minimize stalling on breakthrough by reducing pressure and slowly drilling through the last
part of the hole.
• Keep the motor running while pulling the bit out of a drilled hole. This will help reduce jamming.
• Make sure switch turns drill on and off.
It is important to support the work properly and to hold the drill firmly to
prevent loss of control (figure 3) which could cause personal injury. If you have any
questions on how to properly operate tool, call: 1-800-544-6986.
DRILLING IN WOOD
Holes in wood can be made with the same twist drill bits used for metal or with spade bits.
These bits should be sharp and should be pulled out frequently when drilling to clear chips
from the flutes.
DRILLING IN METAL
Use a cutting lubricant when drilling metals. The exceptions are cast iron and brass which
should be drilled dry. The cutting lubricants that work best are sulfurized cutting oil or lard oil.
DRILLING IN MASONRY
Use carbide tipped masonry bits. Refer to Drilling section. Keep even force on the drill but
not so much that you crack the brittle material. A smooth, even flow of dust indicates the
proper drilling rate.
• Unit will not start.
• Battery not installed properly.
• Battery not charged.
• Lock-off button actuated.
• Battery will not charge.
• Battery not inserted into charger.
• Charger not plugged in.
• Surrounding air temperature
too hot or too cold.
