5) BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
a) Ensure the switch is in the off position before inserting battery pack. Inserting the
battery pack into power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
b) Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery
pack.
c) Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other
battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
d) When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects like paper
clips, coins, keys, nails, screws, or other small metal objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause burns or a fire.
e) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery, avoid contact. If
contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally
seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.

Important Safety Instructions for Battery Packs
General Safety Rules
WARNING! Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term “power tool” in all
of the warnings listed below refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
1) WORK AREA SAFETY
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust
or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can
cause you to lose control
2) ELECTRICAL SAFETY
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the
power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged
or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock. Replace or repair damaged cords.
Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. Use only 3-wire extension cords that
have 3-prong grounding-type plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the tool’s plug.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor
use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock. When using
an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product
will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power
and overheating. The following table shows the correct size to use depending on cord
length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.

3) PERSONAL SAFETY
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of
drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may
result in serious personal injury.
b) Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before plugging
in. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in power tools that
have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench
or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be
caught in moving parts. Air vents often cover moving parts and should also be avoided.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of these devices can
reduce dust-related hazards.
4) POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool
that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack from the power
tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power
tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power
tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
The DC527 uses an 18 Volt DEWALT battery pack. The DC528 can use a 12 Volt or 14.4 Volt
DEWALT battery pack. When ordering replacement battery packs, be sure to include catalog
number and voltage: Extended Run-Time battery packs deliver more run-time than standard
battery packs. Consult the chart at the end of this manual for compatibility of chargers and
battery packs.
NOTE: Your tool will accept either standard or Extended Run Time battery packs. However, be
sure to select proper voltage. Batteries slowly lose their charge when they are not on the
charger, the best place to keep your battery is on the charger at all times.
The battery pack is not fully charged out of the carton. Before using the battery pack and
charger, read the safety instructions below. Then follow charging procedures outlined.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
• Do not incinerate the battery pack even if it is severely damaged or is completely
worn out. The battery pack can explode in a fire.
• A small leakage of liquid from the battery pack cells may occur under extreme usage
or temperature conditions. This does not indicate a failure. However, if the outer seal is
broken and this leakage gets on your skin:
a. Wash quickly with soap and water.
b. Neutralize with a mild acid such as lemon juice or vinegar.
c. If battery liquid gets into your eyes, flush them with clean water for a minimum of 10 minutes and seek immediate medical attention. (Medical note: The liquid is 25-35% solution of potassium hydroxide.)
• Charge the battery packs only in DEWALT chargers.
• DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other liquids.
• Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature may
reach or exceed 105°F (such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
DANGER: Electrocution hazard. Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason.
If battery pack case is cracked or damaged, do not insert into charger. Electric shock or
electrocution may result. Damaged battery packs should be returned to service center for
recycling.
NOTE: Battery storage and carrying caps are provided for use whenever the
battery is out of the tool or charger. Remove cap before placing battery in
charger or tool.
WARNING: Fire hazard. Do not store or carry battery so that metal
objects can contact exposed battery terminals. For example, do not place
battery in aprons, pockets, tool boxes, product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with loose
nails, screws, keys, etc. without battery cap. Transporting batteries can possibly cause
fires if the battery terminals inadvertently come in contact with conductive materials
such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like. The US Department of Transportation
Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or
on airplanes (i.e., packed in suitcases and carry-on luggage) UNLESS they are properly
protected from short circuits. So when transporting individual batteries, make sure that the
battery terminals are protected and well insulated from materials that could contact them and
cause a short circuit.
The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) Seal on the
nickel-cadmium battery (or battery pack) indicates that the costs to recycle the
battery (or battery pack) at the end of its useful life have already been paid by
DEWALT. In some areas, it is illegal to place spent nickel-cadmium batteries in
the trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC program provides an
environmentally conscious alternative.
RBRC™ in cooperation with DEWALT and other battery users, has established programs in
the United States to facilitate the collection of spent nickel-cadmium batteries. Help protect our
environment and conserve natural resources by returning the spent nickel-cadmium battery to
an authorized DEWALT service center or to your local retailer for recycling. You may also
contact your local recycling center for information on where to drop off the spent battery.
RBRC™ is a registered trademark of the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation.
Important Safety Instructions for Battery Chargers
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS: This manual contains important safety instructions for battery
chargers.
• Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on charger, battery
pack, and product using battery pack.
DANGER: Electrocution hazard. 120 volts are present at charging terminals. Do not probe
with conductive objects. Electric shock or electrocution may result.
WARNING: Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get inside charger. Electric shock may
result.
CAUTION: Burn hazard. To reduce the risk of injury, charge only DEWALT nickel-cadmium
rechargeable batteries. Other types of batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage.
CAUTION: Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged in to 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 there is no battery pack in the cavity. Unplug charger
before attempting to clean.
• DO NOT attempt to charge the battery pack with any chargers other than the ones in
this manual. The charger and battery pack are specifically designed to work together.
• These chargers are not intended for any uses other than charging DEWALT rechargeable batteries. Any other uses may result in risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. This will reduce risk of
damage to electric plug and cord.
• Make sure that cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or
otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
• Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely necessary. Use of improper
extension cord could result in risk of fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
• An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for
safety. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that
is 16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge. When using more than one extension to
make up the total length, be sure each individual extension contains at least the minimum
wire size.
• Do not place any object on top of charger or place the charger on a soft surface that
might block the ventilation slots and result in excessive internal heat. Place the
charger in a position away from any heat source. The charger is ventilated through slots in
the top and the bottom of the housing.
• Do not operate charger with damaged cord or plug — have them replaced immediately.
• Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise
damaged in any way. Take it to an authorized service center.
• Do not disassemble charger; take it to an authorized service center when service or
repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock, electrocution
or fire.
• Disconnect the charger from the outlet before attempting any cleaning. This will
reduce the risk of electric shock. Removing the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect 2 chargers together.
• The charger is designed to operate on standard household electrical power
(120 Volts). Do not attempt to use it on any other voltage. This does not apply to the
vehicular charger.

Charging Procedure
DANGER: Electrocution hazard. 120 volts are present at charging terminals. Do not probe
with conductive objects. Electric shock or electrocution may result.
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate outlet.
2. Insert the battery pack into the charger. The red (charging) light will blink continuously
indicating that the charging process has started.
3. The completion of charge will be indicated by the red light remaining ON continuously. The
pack is fully charged and may be used at this time or left in the charger.
Indicator Light Operation
Switch (Fig. 1)
To turn the light on, slide the switch (C) forward. To turn it off, slide the switch back.
Replacing the Fluorescent Tube (Fig. 3, 4)
Charge Indicators
Some chargers are designed to detect certain problems that can arise with battery packs.
Problems are indicated by the red light flashing at a fast rate. If this occurs, re-insert battery
pack into the charger. If the problem persists, try a different battery pack to determine if the
charger is OK. If the new pack charges correctly, then the original pack is defective and
should be returned to a service center or other collection site for recycling. If the new battery pack elicits the same trouble indication as the original, have the charger tested at an
authorized service center.
HOT/COLD PACK DELAY
Some chargers have a Hot/Cold Pack Delay feature: when the charger detects a battery that
is hot, it automatically starts a Hot Pack Delay, suspending charging until the battery has
cooled. After the battery has cooled, the charger automatically switches to the Pack Charging
mode. This feature ensures maximum battery life. The red light flashes long, then short while
in the Hot Pack Delay mode.
PROBLEM POWER LINE
Some chargers have a Problem Power Line indicator. When the charger is used with some
portable power sources such as generators or sources that convert DC to AC, the charger may
temporarily suspend operation, flashing the red light with two fast blinks followed by a
pause. This indicates the power source is out of limits.
CAUTION: Disconnect battery pack from tool before replacing the fluorescent tube.
Such preventative safety measures reduce the risk of personal injury.
CAUTION: Burn hazard. Lens or fluorescent tube may be hot immediately after use.
CAUTION: Vision may be impaired when looking directly into fluorescent light.
CAUTION: If replacing a broken tube, protect your hands before attempting to remove the
tube. Do not remove any pieces of broken glass or tube from the socket area with bare hands,
or personal injury may occur.
NOTE: Use only DEWALT DC5273 13W tube.
1. With one hand on the lens cover assembly (D) and the other hand on the base (E), slowly
rotate the cover counterclockwise from its original position.
2. Carefully lift the lens cover assembly up and over the tube. Set aside.
3. Carefully remove the tube from the socket by gently pulling up from the base. Check
to ensure the socket and the area around the socket is free of dirt, dust and other
contaminants.
NOTE: A clear, rubber end cap is mounted inside the top portion of the lens cover
assembly This endcap must align with the top of the fluorescent tube in order for the
lens cover assembly to fit properly onto the handle. The rubber end cap should be in the
correct position when lens cover assembly is removed to allow new tube to fit.
4. Once the new tube is in place, align the slots (H) at the bottom of the lens cover assembly
with the slots (I) at the top of the base.
5. Push the lens cover assembly down then rotate it clockwise to lock into place.
Hook (Fig. 5)
LEAVING THE BATTERY PACK IN THE CHARGER
The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the red light glowing indefinitely. The
charger will keep the battery pack fresh and fully charged.
NOTE: A battery pack will slowly lose its charge when kept out of the charger. If the battery
pack has not been kept on maintenance charge, it may need to be recharged before use. A
battery pack may also slowly lose its charge if left in a charger that is not plugged into an
appropriate AC source.
WEAK BATTERY PACKS: Chargers can also detect a weak battery. Such batteries are still
usable but should not be expected to perform as much work. In such cases, about 10 seconds
after battery insertion, the charger will beep rapidly 8 times to indicate a weak battery condition. The charger will then go on to charge the battery to the highest capacity possible.
CAUTION: When hook is in use, do not shake light. Personal injury or property damage may
occur.
CAUTION: When light is hung by the hook, do not shake the light or object that it is hanging
from. Do not hang the light from any electrical wires or anything that it is not secure. Personal
injury or property damage may occur.
CAUTION: Only use the hook for hanging the area light. The hook is not intended to
support additional weight. Do not attach or hang anything additional to the light or risk of
breakage may occur.
CAUTION: Do not reach with the hook or use the hook to support your weight in any
situation.
The built-in hook (G) telescopes out of the lens cover assembly (D). This hook locks into place
in the down position and when fully extended, as shown in Figure 5. The hook rotates
360 degrees and can be locked at 45-degree positions when fully extended.

• MAINTAIN TOOL WITH CARE. Keep fluorescent tube area clean for best and safest
performance.
• Do not attempt to repair the area light. To assure product safety and reliability, repairs,
maintenance, and adjustments should be performed by authorized DEWALT service
centers.
Battery
1. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the battery pack is charged when the
air temperature is between 65°F and 75°F (18°- 24°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 65°F - 75°F (18°- 24°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. 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 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.
WARNING: Don’t allow any liquid to get inside charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: 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.
