when changing accessories, ensure that the
selector is in the central position.
• When driving screws into walls, floors etc., check
where "live"electrical wires may be encountered.
Do not touch any front metal parts of your
screwdriver! Hold it only by the plastic housing.
• Do not store your screwdriver in locations where
the temperature may reach or exceed 50°C/120°F
(such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
• Do not charge your screwdriver when it or the air
temperature is below +5°C/40°F or above +40°C/105°F.
• Do not incinerate your screwdriver, even if it is
severely damaged or is completely worn out. The
batteries can explode in a fire.
• A small leakage of liquid from the battery cells may
occur under extreme usage, charging or temperature
conditions. This does not indicate a failure.
However, if the seal is broken and this leakage gets
onto your skin:
• Wash quickly with soap and water.
• Neutralize with a mild acid such as lemon juice
• If battery liquid gets into your eyes, flush them
with clean water for a minimum of 10 minutes and
seek medical attention. (Medical note: The liquid
is a 25-35% solutionof potassium hydroxide).
• Do not attempt to open the housing of your charger.
• Your charger and screwdriver are specifically
designed to work together.
• Do not attempt to charge any other cordless tool or
battery pack with this charger. Do not attempt to
charge your screwdriver with any charger other
than the one supplied with it.
Your screwdriver is double insulated. This means
that all the external metal parts are electrically
insulated from the mains power supply. This is
done by placing insulation barriers between the
electrical and mechanical components making it
unnecessary for the tool to be earthed.
Note: Double insulation does not take the place
of normal safety precautions when operating the
tool. The insulation system is for added protection
against injury resulting from a possible electrical
insulation failure within your screwdriver.
Be sure the supply is the same as the voltage given on the
rating plate of your charger. Your charger is fitted with a
two-core cable and plug.
MAINS PLUG REPLACEMENT
Should the mains plug or cordset of your charger be
damaged, it must only be replaced by an authorised
Black & Decker service agent because special
purpose tools are required.
Up to 30m (100ft) of 3-core extension cable can be used
without undue loss of power.
Note: An extension cable should not be used unless
absolutely necessary. Use of an improper extension
cable could result in a risk of fire and electric shock.
If an extension cable must be used, make sure it is
properly wired, contains the correct rated fuse as
recommended in its literature and is in good
UNWANTED TOOLS AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Should you find one day that the tool needs
replacement or is of no further use, think of the
protection of the environment. Black & Decker
service agents will accept old tools and will
dispose of them in an environmentally safe way.
