BATTERY PACK
The battery pack for your worklight has been shipped
in a low charge condition to prevent possible problems. Therefore, you should charge it until light on
front of charger changes from red to green.
Note: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time
they are charged. Allow several cycles (operating
worklight followed by recharging) for batteries to
become fully charged.
CHARGING
BATTERY
Allow battery pack to remain in charger for 15 to
30 minutes. When battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, red LED should come on.
If red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this
indicates a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
[]
After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of
charging time is required to fully recharge battery
pack.
[]
The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
[]
Do not place charger and battery pack in an area
of extreme heat or cold. It will work best at normal
PACK
room temperature.
See Figure 1.
[]
Use only the recommended battery pack and
charger with your worklight.
[]
Make sure power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
[]
Connect charger to power supply.
[]
Place battery pack in charger aligning raised
rib on battery pack with groove in charger.
See Figure 1.
Press down on battery pack to be sure contacts
on battery pack engage properly with contacts in
charger.
[]
If both yellow and green LED come on, this
indicates a deeply discharged or defective battery
pack.
[]
Normally, the red LED on charger will come on.
This indicates charger is in fast charging mode.
[]
Red LED should remain on for approximately 1
hour then the green LED will come on. Green LED
on indicates battery pack is fully charged and
charger is in trickle charge mode. Note: Green
LED will remain on until battery pack is removed
from charger or charger is disconnected from
power supply.

iNFORMATION
FOR RECHARGING
BATTERY PACK
HOT
When using your worklight continuously, the batteries
in your battery pack will become hot. You should let a
hot battery pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes before attempting to recharge. When the battery
pack becomes discharged and is hot, this will cause
the green LED to come on instead of the red LED.
After 30 minutes, reinsert battery pack in charger. If
green LED continues to remain on, return battery pack
to your nearest Sears Repair Center for checking or
replacing.
Note: This situation only occurs when continuous
use of your worklight causes the batteries to become
hot. It does not occur under normal circumstances.
Refer to "CHARGING BATTERY PACK" for normal
recharging of batteries. If the charger does not charge
your battery pack under normal circumstances, return
both the battery pack and charger to your nearest
Sears Repair Center for electrical check.
