The battery pack supplied with your cordless power tool is only partially charged. The battery pack has to be charged completely before you use the tool for the first time. 1. Please check the data marked on the rating plate of the battery charger. Be sure to connect the battery charger to a power supply with the voltage marked on the rating plate. Never connect it to a different mains voltage. 2. For optimum battery performance, avoid low discharge cycles by charging the battery pack frequently. 2. Protect the battery charger and its cord from damage. Keep the charger and its cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges. Have damaged cords repaired without delay by a qualified technician at an authorized Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® dealer or call the Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® customer service center at 1-866-SNOWJOE (1-866-766-9563). 3. Store the battery pack in a cool place, ideally at 59°F (15°C) and charged to at least 40%. 4. Lithium-ion batteries are subject to a natural aging process. The battery pack must be replaced at the latest when its capacity falls to just 80% of its capacity when new. Weakened cells in an aged battery pack are no longer capable of meeting the high power requirements needed for the proper operation of your cordless air compressor, and therefore pose a safety risk. 3. Electrical plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with grounded appliances. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock. 5. Do not throw battery packs into an open fire as this poses a risk of explosion. 4. Keep the battery charger, battery pack(s) and the cordless tool out of the reach of children. 6. Do not ignite the battery pack or expose it to fire. 7. Do not exhaustively discharge batteries. Exhaustive discharge will damage the battery cells. The most common cause of exhaustive discharge is lengthy storage or non-use of partially discharged batteries. Stop working as soon as the performance of the battery falls noticeably or the electronic protection system triggers. Place the battery pack in storage only after it has been fully charged. 5. Do not use the supplied battery charger to charge other cordless tools. 6. During periods of heavy use, the battery pack will become warm. Allow the battery pack to cool to room temperature before inserting it into the charger to recharge. 7. Do not overcharge batteries. Do not exceed the maximum charging times. These charging times only apply to discharged batteries. Frequent insertion of a charged or partially charged battery pack will result in overcharging and cell damage. Do not leave batteries in the charger for days on end. 8. Protect batteries and the tool from overloads. Overloads will quickly result in overheating and cell damage inside the battery housing even if this overheating is not apparent externally. 9. Avoid damage and shocks. Immediately replace batteries that have been dropped from a height of more than 3 feet (1 meter) or those that have been exposed to violent shocks, even if the housing of the battery pack appears to be undamaged. The battery cells inside the battery may have suffered serious damage. In such instances, please read the waste disposal information for proper battery disposal. 8. Never use or charge batteries if you suspect that it has been more than 12 months since the last time they were charged. There is a high probability that the battery pack has already suffered dangerous damage (exhaustive discharge). 9. Charging batteries at a temperature below 41°F (5°C) will cause chemical damage to the cells and may cause a fire. 10. If the battery pack suffers overloading and overheating, the integrated protective cutoff will switch off the equipment for safety reasons. 10. Do not use batteries that have been exposed to heat during the charging process, as the battery cells may have suffered dangerous damage. IMPORTANT! Do not press the ON/OFF switch any more if the protective cut-off has been activated. This may damage the battery pack. 11. Do not use batteries that have suffered curvature or deformation during the charging process or those that exhibit other atypical symptoms (gassing, hissing, cracking, etc.). 11. Use only original battery packs. The use of other batteries poses a fire risk and may result in injuries or an explosion. 12. Never fully discharge the battery pack (maximum recommended depth of discharge is 80%). A complete discharge of the battery pack will lead to premature aging of the battery cells. 4 Protection from environmental influences 1. Wear suitable work clothes. Wear safety goggles. 2. Protect your cordless tool and the battery charger from moisture and rain. Moisture and rain can cause dangerous cell damage. 3.
