BATTERIES
Your worklight's battery pack is equipped with nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service
from each charging will depend on the type of work
you are doing.
The batteries in this worklight have been designed to
provide maximum trouble free life. However, like all
batteries, they will eventually wear out. Do not
disassemble battery pack and attempt to replace the
batteries. Handling of these batteries, especially when
wearing rings and jewelry, could result in a serious
burn.
•
Store and charge your batteries in a cool area.
Temperatures above or below normal room
temperature will shorten battery life.
•
Never store batteries in a discharged condition.
Recharge them immediately after they are
discharged.
•
All batteries gradually lose their charge. The
higher the temperature the quicker they lose their
charge. If you store your worklight for long periods
of time without using it, recharge the batteries
every month or two. This practice will prolong
battery life.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest
the following:
To preserve natural resources, please
recycle or dispose of batteries
properly.
BATTERY PACK REMOVAL AND
PREPARATION
FOR RECYCLING
This product contains nickelcadmium batteries. Local, state or
federal laws may prohibit disposal of
nickel-cadmium batteries in ordinary
trash.
_k
WARNING:
Upon removal, cover the battery
pack's terminals with heavy duty adhesive tape.
Do not attempt to destroy or disassemble battery
pack or remove any of its components. Nickelcadmium batteries must be recycled or disposed
of properly. Also, never touch both terminals with
metal objects and/or body parts as short circuit
may result. Keep away from children. Failure to
comply with these warnings could result in fire
and/or serious injury.
_k
ARNING: Do not attempt to disassemble the
battery pack. Fire or injury may result.
Consult your local waste authority for information
regarding available recycling and/or disposal options.
