Do not use force when inserting the battery cartridge.
If the cartridge does not slide in easily, it is not being inserted correctly.
Charging
Plug the fast charger into your power
source. Insert the battery cartridge so that
the plus and minus terminals on the battery cartridge are on the same sides as their
respective markings on the fast charger. Insert the cartridge fully into the port so that
it rests on the charger port floor.
The charging light will come on and charging will begin. If the charging light does not
come on, press the reset button. If the
charging light goes out within 10 seconds even after pressing the reset button a couple of
times, the battery cartridge i s dead. (CAUTION : Wait for more than 5 seconds after the
charging light goes out to press the reset button again.) Replace it with a new one. When
the charging light goes out after about one hour, you may remove the fully charged
battery cartridge. After charging, unplug the charger from the power source.
CAUTION :
Your new battery cartridge is not charged. You will need to charge it before use.
If you try to charge a cartridge from a just-operated tool, sometimes the charging light
will not come on. If this occurs, let the cartridge cool off for a while. Then re-insert it
and try to charge it once more.
When you charge a new battery cartridge or a battery cartridge which has not been used
for a long period, it may not accept a full charge. This is a normal condition and does
not indicate a problem. You can recharge the battery cartridge fully after discharging
it completely a couple of times.
If you wish to charge two battery cartridges, allow 15 minutes between chargings on the
fast charger.
