or more) of non-use of your tool, it is best to
run your tool down until it is fully discharged
before storing your battery pack. After a long
period of storage, the capacity at first
recharge will be lower. Normal capacity will be
restored in two or three charge/discharge

PARTS INSIDE. Preventive
maintenance performed by unauthorized
personnel may result in misplacing of
internal wires and components which
could cause serious hazard. We recom-
mend that all tool service be performed by a
Bosch Factory Service Center or Authorized
Bosch Service Station. SERVICEMEN:
Disconnect tool and/or charger from power
source before servicing.
Be alert for battery packs that are nearing
their end of life. If you notice decreased
tool performance or significantly shorter
running time between charges then it is time
to replace the battery pack. Failure to do so
can cause the tool to operate improperly or
damage the charger.
Long term battery storage should be in
the discharged state. Battery packs last
longer and re-charge better when they are
stored discharged. Remember to fully re-
charge battery packs before using after
prolonged storage.
