LOW-BATTERY
CAPACITY
iNDiCATOR
If the FuelGauge
shines red when the trigger switch on the saw is depressed,
the
battery pack power has run out, and the battery pack should
be recharged.
Unlike other battery-pack
types, Lithium-Ion
battery
packs deliver fade-free
power for their entire run time. The tool will not experience
a slow, gradual loss
of power as you work. To signal that the battery
pack is at the end of its run time
and needs to be charged,
the power to the tool will drop quickly.
NOTE: The LED may also flash due to an overload or high temperature
(see
BATTERY PROTECTION
immediately
below).
BATTERY
PROTECTION
The battery circuitry
protects the battery pack from extreme temperature,
over-
discharge,
and over-charge.
To protect the battery from damage and prolong its
life, the battery pack circuitry
will turn off the battery pack if it becomes
overloaded
or if the temperature
becomes too high during use. This may happen in extremely
high-torque,
binding, and stalling situations. This intelligent system will shut down
your battery pack if its operating
temperature
exceeds
176°F (80°C) and will begin
normal operation
when it returns to 32°F (0°C) - 104°F (40°C).
The LED light will begin flash slowly if the battery
circuitry
detects
a
momentary
overload.
NOTE: A significantly
reduced run time after fully charging the battery pack
indicates
that the battery is near the end of its usable life and must be replaced.
COLD WEATHER
OPERATION
This Lithium-Ion
battery pack will provide optimal performance
in temperatures
between 32°F (0°C) and 104°F (40°C). When the battery pack is very cold, it may
"pulse" for the first minute of use to warm itself. Put the battery pack on a tool
and use the tool in a light application.
After about a minute, the battery pack will
have warmed
itself and will operate normally.
WHEN TO CHARGE
THE BATTERY
PACK
It is not necessary
to run down the battery-pack
charge before recharging.
The
Lithium-Ion
battery can be charged at any time and will not develop a "memory"
when charged after only a partial discharge.
Remove the battery
pack from the tool when convenient
for you and your job.
"Top off" the battery-pack
charge
by charging
it for a time before starting a big
job or a long period of use.
Due to Lithium-Ion
fade-free
properties,
the only time it is necessary
to charge
the Lithium-Ion
battery
pack is when the pack has reached the end of its
charqe. To siqnal the end of charge, power to the tool will drop quickly,
or the
Fuel-Gauge
feature on tools so equipped
will indicate
diminishing
and depleted
battery power, Charge the battery pack as needed.
