Tips for maintaining maximum
battery life
Charge the battery cartridge before completely
discharged. Always stop tool operation and
charge the battery cartridge when you notice
less tool power.
Never recharge a fully charged battery cartridge.
Overcharging shortens the battery service life.
Charge the battery cartridge with room tempera-
ture at 10 °C - 40 °C (50 °F - 104 °F). Let a hot
battery cartridge cool down before charging it.
When not using the battery cartridge, remove
it from the tool or the charger.
Charge the battery cartridge if you do not use
it for a long period (more than six months).
Always be sure that the tool is
switched off and the battery cartridge is removed
before adjusting or checking function on the tool.
Take care not to trap finger(s)
between cleaner and battery when loading bat-
tery. Trapping finger(s) may cause injury.
Installing or removing battery
Always switch off the tool before
installing or removing of the battery cartridge.
Hold the tool and the battery car-
tridge firmly when installing or removing battery
cartridge. Failure to hold the tool and the battery
cartridge firmly may cause them to slip off your hands

To remove the battery cartridge, slide it from the tool
while sliding the button on the front of the cartridge.
To install the battery cartridge, align the tongue on the
battery cartridge with the groove in the housing and slip
it into place. Insert it all the way until it locks in place
with a little click. If you can see the red indicator on the
upper side of the button, it is not locked completely.
Always install the battery cartridge
fully until the red indicator cannot be seen. If not,
it may accidentally fall out of the tool, causing injury to
you or someone around you.
Do not install the battery cartridge
forcibly. If the cartridge does not slide in easily, it is
not being inserted correctly.
