Important Safety Instructions for Battery Chargers
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS: This manual contains important safety instructions for battery
• Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on charger, battery pack, and
product using battery pack.
WARNING: Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get inside charger.
CAUTION: Burn hazard. To reduce the risk of injury, charge only DeWALT batteries. Other types
of batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage.
CAUTION: Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged in to the power supply, the
charger can be shorted by foreign material. Foreign materials of a conductive nature such as, but
not limited to, steel wool, aluminum foil, or any buildup of metallic particles should be kept away
from charger cavities. Always unplug the charger from the power supply when there is no battery
pack in the cavity. Unplug charger before attempting to clean.
• DO NOT attempt to charge the battery pack with any chargers other than the ones in
this manual. The charger and battery pack are specifically designed to work together.
• These chargers are not intended for any uses other than charging DeWALT
rechargeable batteries. Any other uses may result in risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. This will reduce risk of damage
to electric plug and cord.
• Make sure that cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or
otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
• Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension
cord could result in risk of fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
• An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for
safety. 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 individual extension contains at least the minimum wire size. The
following table shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere
rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The lower the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

• Do not place any object on top of charger or place the charger on a soft surface that
might block the ventilation slots and result in excessive internal heat. Place the charger
in a position away from any heat source. The charger is ventilated through slots in the top and
the bottom of the housing.
• Do not mount charger on wall or permanently affix charger to any surface. The charger
is intended to use on a flat, stable surface (i.e., table top, bench top).
• Do not operate charger with damaged cord or plug — have them replaced immediately.
• Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise
damaged in any way. Take it to an authorized service center.
• Do not disassemble charger; take it to an authorized service center when service or
repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock, electrocution or
• Disconnect the charger from the outlet before attempting any cleaning. This will
reduce the risk of electric shock. Removing the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect two chargers together.
• The charger is designed to operate on standard household electrical power (120 Volts).
Do not attempt to use it on any other voltage.
• This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.
• This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates,
uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more
of the following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
– Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
– Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
– Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The DC9000 charger is designed to charge D
charger requires no adjustment and is designed to be as easy as possible to operate. Simply place
your battery pack into the receptacle of a plugged in charger and it will automatically charge the
Important Safety Instruction for Battery Packs
WARNING: For safe operation, read this manual and manuals originally supplied with tool before
using the charger.
When ordering replacement battery packs, be sure to include catalog number and voltage. Consult
the chart on the last page of this manual for compatibility of chargers and battery packs.
The battery pack is not fully charged out of the carton. Before using the battery pack and charger,
read the safety instructions below. Then follow charging procedures outlined.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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
15 minutes or until irritation ceases. If medical attention is needed, the battery electrolyte is
composed of a mixture of liquid organic carbonates and lithium salts.
• Contents of opened battery cells may cause respiratory irritation. Provide fresh air. If

symptoms persists, seek medical attention
WARNING: Burn hazard. Battery liquid may be flammable if exposed to spark or flame.
• Charge the battery packs only in DeWalt chargers.
• DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other liquids.
• Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature may
reach or exceed 105°F (40˚) (such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
WARNING: Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason. If battery pack case is
cracked or damaged, do not insert into charger. Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack.
Do not use a battery pack or charger that has received a sharp blow, been dropped, run over
or damaged in any way (i.e., pierced with a nail, hit with a hammer, stepped on). Damaged
battery packs should be returned to service center for recycling.
CAUTION: When not in use, place tool on its side on a stable surface where it will not
cause a tripping or falling hazard. Some tools with large battery packs will stand upright on the
battery pack but may be easily knocked over.
WARNING: Fire hazard. Do not store or carry battery so that metal objects can contact
exposed battery terminals. For example, do not place battery in aprons, pockets, tool boxes,
product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with loose nails, screws, keys, etc. Transporting batteries can
possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently come in contact with conductive
materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like. The US Department of Transportation
Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on
airplanes (i.e., packed in suitcases and carry-on luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected
from short circuits. So when transporting individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals
are protected and well insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit.
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corp oration) Seal on the nickel
