Battery Charging (see figure B)
Do not use other battery chargers. The
supplied battery charger is designed for
the Lithium-Ion battery in your machine.
Observe the mains voltage! The voltage of
the power supply must correspond with
the data given on the nameplate of the bat-
tery charger. Battery chargers marked with
230 V can also be operated with 220 V.
The battery is equipped with temperature
monitoring that allows charging only in the
temperature range between 0 °C and 45 °C.
In this manner, a high battery service life is
Note: The battery is supplied partially
charged. To ensure full capacity of the bat-
tery, completely charge the battery in the bat-
tery charger before using your power tool for
the first time.
The lithium-ion battery can be charged at any
time without reducing its service life. Inter-
rupting the charging procedure does not dam-
age the battery.
The "Electronic Cell Protection (ECP)" pro-
tects the lithium ion battery against deep dis-
charging. When the battery is run down or dis-
charged, the chain saw is shut off by means of
a protective circuit: The saw chain no longer
Do not continue to press the
On/Off switch after the ma-
chine has been automatically switched off.
The battery can be damaged.
Charging Procedure
The charging procedure starts as soon as the
mains plug of the battery charger is plugged
into the socket outlet and the battery 17 is in-
serted into the charging compartment 22.
Due to the intelligent charging method, the
charging condition of the battery is automati-
cally detected and the battery is charged with
the optimum charging current, depending on
battery temperature and voltage.
This gives longer life to the battery and always
leaves it fully charged when kept in the charg-
er for storage.
Meaning of the Indication Elements
Control of the charging procedure is indicated
via the charge control LEDs 24 and 25:
Rapid-charging Procedure
AL 3640 CV
AL 3620 CV
The rapid-charging procedure is indicated by
flashing of the green charge control LED 25.
Indication element of the battery: During the
charging procedure, the three green LEDs
light up one after the other and briefly go out.
The battery is fully charged when the three
green LEDs light up continuously. The three
LEDs go out again approx. 5 minutes after the
battery has been fully charged.
Bosch Power Tools
Note: The rapid-charging procedure is only
possible when the battery temperature is
within the allowable charging temperature
range, see section "Technical Data".
Battery Charged
AL 3640 CV
AL 3620 CV
Continuous lighting of the green charge
control LED 25 signals that the battery is fully
Additionally, a signal tone sounds for approx.
2 seconds, which acoustically indicates that
the battery is fully charged.
Afterwards, the battery can be removed for
immediate use.
With no battery inserted, continuous lighting
of the green charge control LED 25 indicates
that the mains plug is plugged into the socket
and that the battery charger is ready for oper-
Battery Temperature below 0 °C and above
45 °C
AL 3640 CV
AL 3620 CV
Continuous lighting of the red LED 24 indi-
cates that the battery temperature is not with-
in the rapid-charging temperature range of
0 °C – 45 °C. As soon as the allowable tem-
perature range is reached, the battery charger
automatically switches to rapid charging.
When the battery is not within the allowable
temperature range, the red battery LED lights
up when inserting the battery into the battery
No charging procedure possible

If a different malfunction of the charging pro-
cedure is present, this will be indicated
through flashing of the red charge control
LED 24.
The charging procedure cannot be started
and the battery cannot be charged (see "Trou-
Charging Advice
With continuous or several repetitive charging
cycles without interruption, the charger can
warm up. This is not meaningful and does not
indicate a technical defect of the battery
