LED glowing indefinitely. The charger will keep the battery pack
fresh and fully charged.
IMPORTANT CHARGING NOTES
1. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the battery
pack is charged when the air temperature is between 60°F and 80°F
(16°- 27°C). DO NOT charge the battery pack in an air temperature
below +40°F (+4.5°C), or above +105°F (+40.5°C). This is important
and will prevent serious damage to the battery pack.
2. The charger and battery pack may become warm to touch
while charging. This is a normal condition, and does not indicate a
problem. To facilitate the cooling of the battery pack after use, avoid
placing the charger or battery pack in a warm environment such as
in a metal shed, or an uninsulated trailer.
3. If the battery pack does not charge properly:
a. Check current at receptacle by plugging in a lamp or other appliance
b. Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light switch
which turns power off when you turn out the lights.
c. Move charger and battery pack to a location where the surrounding
air temperature is approximately 60°F - 80°F (16° - 27°C).
d. If charging problems persist, take the tool, battery pack and
charger to your local service center.
4. The battery pack should be recharged when it fails to produce
sufficient power on jobs which were easily done previously. DO
NOT CONTINUE to use under these conditions. Follow the charging
procedure. You may also charge a partially used pack whenever
you desire with no adverse affect on the battery pack.
5. Foreign materials of a conductive nature such as, but not limited
to, steel wool, aluminum foil, or any buildup of metallic particles
should be kept away from charger cavities. Always unplug the
charger from the power supply when there is no battery pack in the
cavity. Unplug charger before attempting to clean.
6. Do not freeze or immerse charger in water or any other liquid.
Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get
inside charger. Never attempt to open the battery pack for any
reason. If the plastic housing of the battery pack breaks or cracks,
return to a service center for recycling.
STATE OF CHARGE INDICATOR (FIGURE B)
The back of the battery is equipped with a state of charge indicator. This can
be used to display the current level of charge in the battery during use and
during charging. It does not indicate tool functionality and is subject to variation
based on product components, temperature and end-user application.
Checking state of charge during use:
• Press the state of charge indicator button (B1).
• The four LED's (B2) will illuminate indicating the percent of charge in the
battery. See chart in figure B.
• If LED light does not lluminate, charge battery.
This battery is designed to not
operate when a charge below 20% of its
capacity is reached. After the battery charge is
depleated, the toll will not operate until after the
battery has been recharged.
