Please keep these Instructions for subsequent queries – and
hand them over to third parties when passing on the device!
This device is intended ...
for the charging of rechargeable NiCD / NiMH batteries of size AA / AAA
for private domestic use.
It is not intended:
for charging ordinary batteries (not even ordinary rechargeable batteries!),
for the charging of rechargeable lithium ion batteries,
for use in commercial or industrial areas.
Never insert ordinary batteries in the device – these could overheat and explode! Risk of injury!

3. Important safety instructions!
Never leave the device charging without supervision. Rechargeable batteries get hot when
nearing full charge. Overcharged or defective rechargeable batteries can overheat and explode.
Do not touch hot rechargeable batteries! It is better to disconnect the device from the power
supply and allow the rechargeable batteries to cool down before removing them.
Do not expose the device to additional heat sources such as sun radiation or heating. In this
way you prevent premature overheating of the rechargeable batteries.
If you charge several rechargeable batteries simultaneously: always insert only identical
rechargeable batteries, i.e. the same type, the same charge condition, the same size and the
same capacity. In this way you prevent that individual rechargeable batteries are already fully
charged and get hot while others are still being charged.
Use the mains charging adapter only in dry rooms, never in moist areas, where there is a
danger of electric shock.
Do not continue using the mains charging adapter under any circumstances if it fails to work
or is damaged. The mains charging adapter cannot be repaired – have it replaced by the
service or specialist dealer.
Never open the housing of the mains charging adapter or the rechargeable battery quick
charger, it does not contain any control elements whatsoever. Caution – risk of accidents!
Do not allow children and frail persons to handle rechargeable batteries and the quick battery
charger without supervision – since they might not always be able to correctly judge possible
hazards. Rechargeable batteries pose considerable dangers to children if they put rechargeable
batteries in their mouth (toxic heavy metals) or short-circuit these during playing!
Only charge rechargeable battery types marked with "NiCD" or "NiMH". Never charge any
other types, especially never ordinary batteries – not even if it concerns ordinary so-called
"rechargeable" batteries. These require an entirely different charging technology. If such are
inserted in NiCD/NiMH chargers, such cells could overheat and explode.
4. Inserting rechargeable batteries
Rechargeable batteries must always be recharged in pairs – individual rechargeable batteries
cannot be charged.
If you wish to charge two rechargeable batteries, place them in the right charging shaft.
If you wish to charge four rechargeable batteries, insert two rechargeable batteries in the left
and two rechargeable batteries in the right charging shaft.
Ensure that the rechargeable batteries are inserted correctly, i.e. that the +/- marking in the
charging shafts corresponds with that on the rechargeable batteries (polarity). Otherwise the
charging process cannot start.
Always insert only identical rechargeable batteries, i.e. the same type, the same charge
condition, the same size and the same capacity. In this way you prevent that individual
rechargeable batteries are already fully charged and get hot while others are still being charged.
If you have correctly inserted two or four rechargeable batteries as described on the previous
close the lid of the device.

continuously, for as long as the rechargeable battery is being charged,
slowly flashing, when the charging process has been completed,
not, if the rechargeable battery has not been inserted correctly,
rapidly flashing, if the rechargeable battery cannot be charged.
6. Charging with the storage boxes
For transport or storage of the loose rechargeable batteries, two storage boxes are supplied in
which the rechargeable batteries can also be charged immediately.
Insert the four identical rechargeable batteries in the storage box so that the +/- marking in the
individual compartments corresponds to that of the rechargeable batteries (polarity) otherwise
the charging process cannot start.
Slide the filled storage box with the contacts first in the shaft at the bottom of the device until it
