A conductive item, such as a key or jewelry, can short-circuit the battery if it crosses exposed contacts. The heat produced by a short circuit can cause a fire or burn skin.)

Disposing of Used (Unchargeable) Batteries Be aware that Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries can be recycled. Used batteries can be dropped off at the following local retailers (http://www.rbrc.org/): • • • RadioShack South Side Shopping Center (570.344.6100) The Mall at Steamtown (570.961.5405) 713 Scranton/Carbondale (570.489.1103) Sears Repair Services (Viewmont Mall) Vac-Way Appliance (601 Cedar Avenue) Recharging the Battery Recharging a battery more frequently than necessary may shorten its life. Therefore, recharge the battery only after it reaches the low power level in the radio. Disconnect the battery from the radio if the radio is going to be stored idle for any great length of time (two or more weeks). The battery charger's pocket will accommodate either a radio with a battery attached or a battery alone. Prior to charging a battery with radio, turn the radio off. To recharge a battery, use the following procedure: 1. Plug the transformer power cord into the charger base. 2. Plug the transformer into an AC wall outlet. The charger LED will flash green once to indicate a successful power-up. 3. Insert the battery, or the radio with the battery attached (radio turned off), into the charger pocket. a. Align the grooves on the sides of the battery with the corresponding raised rails inside the charger pocket. b. Ensure complete contact between the contacts in the charging pocket and those on the back of the battery. 4. Once the battery is properly seated in the pocket, the charger LED will light red to indicate that the battery is charging rapidly. When the battery is 90% charged (usually in one hour), the LED will begin to flash green to indicate that the battery is tricklecharging. When the LED changes to a steady green, the battery is fully charged. The battery should be at room temperature for recharging. If the charger LED flashes red, clean all the contacts with a pencil eraser. If the charger continues to flash red, the battery is unchargeable or not making proper contact.
