1. The charger was designed to fast charge
the battery only when the battery temperature
is between 32˚F (0˚C) and 113˚F (45˚C). If the
battery pack is too hot or too cold, the charger
will not fast charge the battery. (This may
happen if the battery pack is hot from heavy
use). When the battery temperature returns to
between 32˚F (0˚C) and 113˚F (45˚C), the
charger will automatically begin charging.
2. A substantial drop in operating time per
charge may mean that the battery pack is
nearing the end of its life and should be
replaced.
3. Remember to unplug charger during storage
period.
4. If battery does not charge properly:
If the indicator lights are "OFF", the charger
is not receiving power from power supply
outlet.
If the green indicator light is
"ON", the charger is plugged in
but the battery pack is not
inserted, or the battery pack is fully charged
and is being trickle charged.
If the green indicator light is
"BLINKING", the battery pack is
being fast-charged. Fast-
charging will automatically stop when the
battery pack is fully charged.
CHARGING BATTERY PACK (BC430 30 MINUTE CHARGER)
Plug charger cord into your standard power
outlet, then insert battery pack into charger
(Fig. 2).
The charger's green indicator light will begin to
"BLINK". This indicates that the battery is
receiving a fast charge. Fast-charging will
automatically stop when the battery pack is
fully charged.
When the indicator light stops "BLINKING"
(and becomes a steady green light) fast
charging is complete.

IMPORTANT CHARGING NOTES

CHARGER INDICATORS, SYMBOLS AND MEANING
a. Check for voltage at outlet by plugging in
some other electrical device.
b. Check to see if outlet is connected to a
light switch which turns power "off" when lights
are turned off.
c. Check battery pack terminals for dirt.
Clean with cotton swab and alcohol if
necessary.
d. If you still do not get proper charging,
take or send tool, battery pack and charger to
your local Bosch Service Center. See "Tools,
Electric" in the Yellow Pages for names and
addresses.
Note: Use of chargers or battery packs not
sold by Bosch will void the warranty.
If the red indicator light is "ON",
the battery pack is too hot or
cold for fast-charging. The
charger will switch to trickle charge, until a
suitable temperature is reached, at which
time the charger will switch automatically to
fast-charging.
If the red indicator light is
"BLINKING", the battery pack
cannot accept a charge or the
contacts of the charger or battery pack are
contaminated. Clean the contacts of the
charger or battery pack only as directed in
these operating instructions or those
supplied with your tool or battery pack.
The battery pack may be used even though
the light may still be blinking. The light may
require more time to stop blinking depending
on temperature. When you begin the
charging process of the battery pack, a
steady red light could also mean the battery
pack is too hot or too cold.
The purpose of the green light is to indicate
that the battery pack is fast-charging. It does
not indicate the exact point of full charge.
The light will stop blinking in less time if the
battery pack was not completely discharged.
