only with this product. Batteries in other products may burst causing personal injury or
3. Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
4. Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Black & Decker may result in a risk
of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
5. To reduce risk of damage to electric plug and cord, pull by plug rather than cord when
disconnecting charger.
6. Make sure cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress.
7. 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.
8. Use only the supplied charger when charging your tool. The use of any other charger
could damage the tool or create a hazardous condition.
9. Use only one charger when charging.
10. Do not attempt to open the charger. There are no customer serviceable parts inside.
Return to any authorized Black & Decker service center.
11. DO NOT incinerate the tool or batteries even if they are severely damaged or
completely worn out. The batteries can explode in a fire.
12. 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 lithium ion battery packs are burned.
13. 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.
14. 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
three minutes or until irritation ceases. If medical attention is needed, the battery elec-
trolyte is composed of a mixture of liquid organic carbonates and lithium salts.
WARNING: Burn hazard. Battery liquid may be flammable if exposed to spark or flame.
Charging Procedure
To charge your screwdriver, follow the steps below.
1. Plug the charger into any standard 120 Volt 60 Hz electrical outlet.
2. Place the screwdriver into the cradle making sure to match the charging
contacts on the handle of the screwdriver with the contacts in the charger. The red
(charging) light will illuminate indicating that the charging process has started.
3. Let the screwdriver charge initially for 9 hours. After the initial charge, under normal
usage, your tool should be fully charged in 6 hours.
Important Charging Notes
1. After normal usage, your tool should be fully charged in 6 hours. Your tool was sent
from the factory in an uncharged condition. Before attempting to use it, it must be
charged for at least 6 hours.
2. DO NOT charge the batteries in an air temperature below 40°F (4.5 °C) or above 105°F
(+40.5 °C). This is important and will prevent serious damage to the batteries. Longest
life and best performance can be obtained if batteries are 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 batteries do 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 tool to a
surrounding air temperature of 40°F (4.5 °C) to 105°F (+40.5 °C). (4) If the charger is
mounted on a wall make sure the charge indicator light is on. If the indicator light
is not on, push unit down to make sure charging contacts are touching. (5) If the
receptacle and temperature are OK, and you do not get proper charging, take or send
the tool and charger to your local Black & Decker service center. See Tools Electric in
yellow pages.
5. The tool should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs which
were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE using product with its batteries in a
depleted condition.
6. To prolong battery life, avoid leaving on charge for extended periods of time (over 30
days without use). Although extended charging is not a safety concern, it can significantly
reduce overall battery life.

The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) Seal on the
lithium-ion battery (or battery pack) indicates that the costs to recycle the
battery (or battery pack) at the end of its useful life have already been paid by
Black & Decker. In some areas, it is illegal to place spent lithium-ion batteries
in the trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC program provides
an environmentally conscious alternative.
RBRC in cooperation with Black & Decker and other battery users, has established
programs in the United States and Canada to facilitate the collection of spent lithium-ion
batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural resources by returning the tool
to an authorized Black & Decker service center for recycling. You may also contact your
local recycling center for information on where to drop off the spent battery, or call

précisées ci-dessous afin dʼéviter les risques de choc électrique, dʼincendie ou de blessure
Aire de travail
• Garder lʼaire de travail propre et bien éclairée; les établis encombrés et les endroits
sombres sont propices aux accidents.
• Ne pas faire fonctionner un outil électrique dans une atmosphère explosive, en
présence par exemple de poussières, gaz ou liquides inflammables. Les outils
électriques peuvent engendrer des étincelles qui pourraient enflammer toute émanation
ou poussière ambiante.
• Tenir les enfants, les visiteurs ou toute autre personne à lʼécart lorsquʼon utilise un
outil électrique; les distractions peuvent faire perdre la maîtrise de ce dernier.
Sécurité – Électricité
• Un outil à piles intégrées ou à bloc-pile externe doit être rechargé seulement au
moyen du chargeur approprié, car un chargeur destiné à une pile particulière peut
entraîner un risque dʼincendie lorsquʼil est utilisé avec une autre.
• Nʼutiliser lʼoutil à piles quʼavec le bloc-pile indiqué, car lʼutilisation dʼun autre type de
piles peut entraîner un risque dʼincendie.
Possible Solution
• Check battery charging requirements
• Plug charger into a working outlet.
Refer to "Important Charging Notes" fo
more details.
• Check current at receptacle by
plugging in a lamp or other appliance.
• Check to see if receptacle is
connected to a light switch which turn
power off when you turn out the lights
• Move charger and tool to a
surrounding air temperature of
above 40 degree F(4.5°C)
or below 105 degree F (+40.5°C).
