THE SCREWDRIVER IS NOT FULLY CHARGED AT THE FACTORY. BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE
THE SCREWDRIVER, THOROUGHLY READ
ALL OF THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
The charger (8) is designed to use standard
household 120 volt 60 Hz power.
1. Insert the charger plug (9) into the
charger port (7) as shown in figure B.
2. Plug the charger (8) into any standard 120
Volt 60 Hz electrical outlet and let the tool
charge initially for 6 hours. A minimum
charge time of 3-6 hours is required to
recharge a completely discharged tool.
NOTe: Do not charge by means of an
engine generator or DC power source.
Use only 120v AC.
3. Disconnect the charger from the outlet, then disconnect the charger from the tool.
CAUTiON: Do not use the tool while it is connected to the charger.
iMPOrTANT CHArGiNG NOTes
1. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the tool is charged when the air
temperature is between 65°F and 75°F (18°- 24°C). DO NOT charge the tool 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 batteries.
2. While charging, the charger may hum and become warm to touch. This is a normal
condition and does not indicate a problem.
3. If the batteries do not charge properly—(1) Check current at receptacle by plugging
in a lamp or other appliance. (2) Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light
switch which turns power off when you turn out the lights. (3) Move charger and
tool to a surrounding air temperature of 40°F (4,5 °C) to 105°F (+40,5 °C). (4) If the
receptacle and temperature are Ok, and you do not get proper charging, take or
send the tool and charger to your local Black & Decker service center. See Tools
Electric in yellow pages.
4. The tool should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs which
were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE using product with its batteries in
a depleted condition.
5. To prolong battery life, avoid leaving on charge for extended periods of time (over 30
days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can significantly
reduce overall battery life.
6. The batteries will reach optimum performance after being cycled 5 times during
normal usage. There is no need to run the batteries down completely before
recharging. Normal usage is the best method of discharging and recharging the
7. Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged into the power supply, the
exposed charging contacts inside the charger can be shorted by foreign material.
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 not plugged into
tool. Unplug charger before attempting to clean.
8. Do not immerse charger in water or any other liquid.
safety warnings and instructions: Drilling
• Hold tool firmly to control its twisting action.
wArNiNG: Tool may stall (if overloaded or improperly used) causing a twist. To
reduce the risk of injury always expect the stall. Grip the tool firmly to control the
twisting action and prevent loss of control which could cause personal injury. If a stall
does occur, release the trigger immediately and determine the reason for the stall before
