Safety
Warnings
and Instructions:
Charging
the Battery
Pack
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 pack, and (3) product using battery pack.
3.
z_ CAUTION:
To reduce the risk of injury, charge only Black & Decker Battery 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
disconnecting
charger.
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 toss 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. A small leakage of liquid from the battery pack 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 pack 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 BATTERY PACK
Your drill may use either a jack plug charger or a cup charger, both of which are described
below. Please follow the directions for the type of charger that you have. Chargers are
designed to use standard 120 volt AC, 60 Hz power. Do not use DC or any other voltage.
THE BATTERIES IN YOUR BATTERY PACK ARE NOT FULLY CHARGED AT THE
FACTORY. BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE THEM, THOROUGHLY
READ ALL OF
THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR JACK PLUG CHARGERS:
1. Place the battery pack into the toot until it "clicks" into place.
2. Insert the charger plug into the connector as shown in figure 1.
3. Plug the charger into any standard 120 Volt 60 Hz electrical outlet and let the battery
pack charge initially for 9 hours. After the initial charge, under normal usage, your
battery pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours.
4. Disconnect the charger from the outlet, then disconnect the charger from the toot.
z_ WARNING: Do not use the toot while it is connected to the charger.
NOTE: To remove the battery pack from the drill, press down on the release button on
the back of the battery pack (figure 2) and slide out.
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR CUP CHARGERS:
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 3 and let the battery pack
charge initially for 9 hours. After the initial charge, under normal usage, your battery
pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours.
3. Unplug charger, and remove the battery pack. Place the battery pack into the toot until it
"clicks" into place.
NOTE: To remove the battery pack from the drill, press down on the release button on
the back of the battery pack (figure 2) and slide out.
IMPORTANT CHARGING NOTES
1. After normal usage, your battery pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the
battery pack is run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged.
Your battery pack was sent from the factory in an uncharged condition. Before attempt-
ing to use it, it must be charged for at least 9 hours.
2. DO NOT charge the battery pack 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 battery pack.
Longest life and best performance can be obtained if battery pack is charged when air
temperature is about 75°F (24°C).
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 battery pack does not charge propertyi(1)
Check current at receptacle by plug-
ging 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 battery
pack to a surrounding
air temperature of 40°F (4,5°C) to 105° F (40,5°C). (4) If the
receptacle and temperature are OK, and you do not get proper charging, take or send
the battery pack and charger to your local Black & Decker service center. See Tools
Electric in yellow pages.
5. The battery 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 battery
pack in a depleted condition.
6. To prolong battery pack life, avoid leaving the battery 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 battery pack life.
7. When the battery pack is inserted into the charger, the red "Charging Indicator" light wilt
come on indicating that there is contact between the battery pack and charger. The light
will stay on as tong as the battery pack is in the charger and the charger is plugged into a
working outlet. It WILL NOT flash, go out or change to a different color when the charging
cycle is complete.
8. The battery 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.
OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
INSTALLING AND REMOVING THE BATTERY PACK
NOTE: Make sure your battery pack is fully charged.
To install the battery pack into the toot handle, align the base of the toot with the rails inside
the tool's handle and slide the battery pack firmly into the handle until you hear the lock snap
into place.
To remove the battery pack from the toot, press the battery pack release button (G) and
firmly pull the battery pack out of the toot handle (figure 2).
TRIGGER SWITCH & REVERSING BUTTON - FIGURE 4
The drill is turned ON and OFF by pulling and releasing the trigger switch (A) shown in
figure 4. The farther the trigger is depressed, the higher the speed of the drill. A
forward/reverse
control button (B) determines the direction of the toot and also serves as a
lock off button. To select forward rotation, release the trigger switch and depress the
forward/reverse
control button to the left. To select reverse, depress the forward/reverse
control button to the right. The center position of the control button locks the toot in the off
position. When changing the position of the control button, be sure the trigger is released.
TORQUE CONTROL - FIGURE 5
To set the tool's torque, rotate the adjustable torque collar as required. There are 24 clutch
settings in all. These are indicated by numbers depicted on the torque collar. For light duty
work when using small screws, set the collar to the smallest number. Each click in a
counterclockwise
direction means an increase in the torque produced. If the clutch slips on
the tightest setting, turn the clutch collar to a higher number. The highest position is the drill
mode and is indicated by a drill bit icon. In this position the clutch will not operate. This
permits heavy duty drilling.
KEYLESS CHUCK - FIGURE 6
To insert a drill bit or other accessory:
1. Grasp the chuck collar with one hand and use your other hand to rotate the chuck 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 portion of the chuck and rotating the front portion of the chuck in the clockwise
direction as viewed from the chuck end.
z_ WARNING: Do not attempt to tighten drill bits (or any other accessory) by gripping the
front part of the chuck and turning the toot on. Damage to the chuck and personal injury
may occur when changing accessories.
SCREW DRIVING
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.
DRILLING
• 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.
• Use a cutting lubricant when drilling metals. The exceptions are cast iron and brass which
should be drilled dry. The lubricants that work best are sutphurized cutting oil or lard oil.
• When using twist drill bits to drill holes in wood, it will be necessary to pull the bits out
frequently to clear chips from the flutes.
• Make sure switch turns drill on and off.
