Battery Replacement/Disposal

Battery Replacement
The battery should last the service life of the unit. Contact Technical Support toll-
free at 800-544-6986 for any information you may need.
The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) Seal on the lead
acid 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 lead acid 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 lead acid batteries. Help protect our environment and
conserve natural resources by returning the lead acid battery to an authorized
Black & Decker service center or to your local retailer for recycling. You may also contact
your local recycling center for information on where to drop off the spent battery, or call

12 Volt DC Charging Adapter Plug Fuse Replacement
The fuse in the plug end of the 12 Volt DC Charging Adapter protects the
adapter's charging circuit. If the 120 Volt AC Charger operates, but the DC
charging adapter does not, then this fuse may be opened (blown).
To replace the fuse:
1. Unscrew the end cap of the DC plug (counterclockwise).
2. Remove spring center contact and fuse.
3. Check fuse with a continuity checker.
4. If blown, locate a replacement 0.5 amp/250 volt fuse.
5. Replace the fuse, spring, contact and end cap.
6. Screw end cap clockwise until it is finger tight – DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN.
7. Test for proper operation of the 12 Volt DC Charging Adapter.
