Charging the battery (fig. A)
The battery needs to be charged before first use and whenev-

done before. The battery may become warm while charging;
this is normal and does not indicate a problem.
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures
below 10 °C or above 40 °C. Recommended charging tem-
perature: approx. 24 °C.
Note: The charger will not charge a battery if the cell

will begin to charge automatically when the cell tempera-
ture warms up or cools down.

Plug in the charger and switch on at the mains.

The charge is complete when the charging indicator (12)
lights green continuously. The charger and the battery can be
left connected indefinitely with the LED illuminated. The LED

occasionally tops up the battery charge. The charging indica-
tor (12) will be lit as long as the battery is connected to the
plugged-in charger.
