Specific safety instructions for battery chargers
The following symbols are marked on the appliance:


To reduce the risk of injury, the user must read the instruction manual.

This appliance is double insulated; therefore no earth wire is required. Always check that the power supply corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate.
Do not use the tool in wet conditions or expose it to rain.
Do not incinerate the batteries.

Explosive gasses. Prevent flames and sparks. Provide adequate ventilation during charging.

Read these instructions before use:

  • If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an authorised Black & Decker Service Centre in order to avoid a hazard.
  • Never attempt to charge non-rechargeable batteries.
  • Have defective cords replaced immediately.
  • Do not expose the battery charger to water.
  • Do not open the battery charger.

Additional safety instructions for batteries

Never attempt to charge a frozen battery.

  • Under extreme conditions, battery leakage may occur. When you notice liquid on the batteries, carefully wipe the liquid off using a cloth. Avoid skin contact.
  • In case of skin or eye contact, follow the instructions below.


Battery fluid is a diluted sulphuric acid and may cause personal injury or damage to property. In case of skin contact, immediately rinse with water. If redness, pain or irritation occurs seek medical attention. In case of eye contact, rinse immediately with clean water and seek immediate medical attention.

  • When disposing of batteries, follow the instructions given in the section "Protecting the environment".
  • Add distilled water in each cell until the battery acid reaches the level specified by the battery manufacturer. This helps to purge excess gas from the cells. Do not overfill. For a battery without cell caps (maintenance free), carefully follow the manufacturer's charging instructions.
  • Study all the battery manufacturer's specific precautions, such as removing or not removing cell caps while charging, and the recommended charging rates.
  • Make sure that the initial charging rate does not exceed the battery manufacturer's requirement.


Risk of explosive gas mixtures.
Working in the vicinity of a lead-acid battery is dangerous. Batteries generate explosive gases during normal battery operation. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that each time, before using your battery charger, you read this manual and follow the instructions exactly.

  • Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Black & Decker may result in a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
  • An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of an improper extension cord could result in a risk of fire and electric shock, and will void the warranty.

Personal safety

  • Wear complete eye protection and suitable clothing to give protection from contact with battery fluid.
  • Avoid touching the eyes while working with a battery. Acid, acid particles or corrosion may get into the eyes.
  • Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches when working with a lead-acid battery. A lead-acid battery can produce a short circuit current high enough to cause a severe burn.
  • Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal object onto the battery. This might cause sparks or short circuit the battery or other electrical part, which can cause an explosion.

Preparation before charging

  • The appliance must only be connected to a 12V (6cell) or 6V (3 cell) lead-acid battery. Before charging, confirm that the voltage of the battery is 12V or 6V by referring to the label on the battery or from the information available relating to its application e.g. car user manual.
  • The appliance is capable of maintaining a bettery with a capacity upto 100 Ah.
  • Do not use the appliance for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home appliances. These batteries may burst and cause injury to persons and damage to property.


Explosive gas may be vented from lead acid batteries when charging. Make sure that the area is well ventilated and remove any sources of ignition when conducting charging procedures.

  • Position the battery charger as far away from the battery as the leads will allow. The battery charger contains switches that may create a spark.
  • Do not place the battery charger above or stand the battery charger on top of the battery.
  • Explosive gases may collect near the ground. Locate the battery charger as high as possible above ground level.
  • Do not use power tools in the charging area.
  • Do not smoke or have a naked flame in the charging area.
  • Follow the instructions for connecting and disconnecting the battery charger leads or battery terminals.
