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.
