IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR RADIO
CHARGER AND SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
■
Save these instructions. This manual contains important safety and operating instructions for charger.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock,
fire, or serious personal injury.
■
Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings in this manual, on battery charger,
and product using battery charger. Following this rule
will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or serious
personal injury.
■
To reduce risk of injury, charge only nickel-cadmium
rechargeable batteries. Other types of batteries may
burst causing personal injury and damage. Following
this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or
serious personal injury.
■
Do not expose charger to wet or damp conditions.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock,
fire, or serious personal injury.
■
Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by
the battery charger manufacturer may result in a risk
of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons. Following
this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or
serious personal injury.
■
■
■
To reduce risk of damage to charger body and cord,
pull by charger plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
Make sure cord is located so that it will not be
stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to
damage or stress. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of serious personal injury.
An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension cord could
result in a risk of fire and electric shock. If extension cord
must be used, make sure:
a. That pins on plug of extension cord are the
same number, size and shape as those of
plug on charger.
b. That extension cord is properly wired and in
good electrical condition; and
c. That wire size is large enough for AC ampere
rating of charger as specified below:
Cord Length (Feet)

■
Do not operate charger with a damaged cord or plug.
If damaged, have replaced immediately by a qualified
serviceman. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
■
Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp
blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any
way; take it to a qualified serviceman. Following this
rule will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or serious
personal injury.
■
Do not disassemble charger; take it to a qualified
serviceman when service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock
or fire. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
■
To reduce the risk of electric shock, unplug charger
from outlet before attempting any maintenance or
cleaning. Turning off controls will not reduce this
risk. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
■
Disconnect charger from power supply when not in
use. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
■
Risk of electric shock. Do not touch uninsulated
portion of output connector or uninsulated battery
terminal.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR RADIO
CHARGER AND SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
■
The charger is designed to operate on standard
household voltage. Do not attempt to use it on any other
voltage.
■
Do not insert foreign matter into the battery port.
■
Do not charge by means of an engine generator or DC
power source.
■
Do not disassemble the battery.
■
Do not charge or store the tool and battery in locations where the temperature may reach or exceed
100°F (38°C), such as outside sheds or metal buildings.
■
Do not incinerate the battery, even if it is severely
damaged or completely worn out. The battery may
explode in fire.
■
Do not short-circuit the battery.
■
A damaged battery is subject to explosion. To avoid
serious personal injury, properly dispose of a damaged
battery.
■
Do not discharge battery beyond normal use limits.

the trigger switch) can cause a deep discharge which
may result in polarity reversal of a cell, rendering the
battery useless.
■
Grounding or Polarization – This product may be
equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug
(a plug having one blade wider than the other). This
plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is
a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug
fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace
your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose
of the polarized plug.
■
Object and Liquid Entry – Never push objects of any
kind into this product through openings as they may
touch dangerous voltage points or short-out parts that
could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of
any kind on the product.

battery leakage may occur. If liquid comes in contact
with your skin, wash immediately with soap and water,
then neutralize with lemon juice or vinegar. If liquid gets
in your eyes, flush them with clean water for at least 10
minutes, then seek immediate medical attention.
■
■
■
Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in the
presence of a source of ignition, such as a pilot light.

or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the
manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.
A) When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
B) If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into
the product,
C) If the product has been exposed to rain or water,
D) If the product does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls
that are covered by the operating instructions as an
improper adjustment of other controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the product to its normal
operation,
E) If the product has been dropped or damaged in any
way, and
F) When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance – this indicates a need for service.
■

OPERATION
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
CHARGING BATTERY PACK
Your radio charger must be connected to a power supply
that is 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only (normal household
current). Do not operate this radio charger on direct current
(DC). A substantial voltage drop will cause a loss of power. If
the radio charger does not operate when plugged into an
outlet, check the radio charger, and then double check the
power supply.
See Figure 4.
The battery pack for your drill-driver has been shipped in a
low charge condition to prevent possible problems. Therefore, you should charge it overnight prior to use.
Note: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time they
are charged. Allow several cycles (drilling followed by recharging batteries) for them to fully charge.
TO OPERATE RADIO
TO CHARGE BATTERY PACK
■ Charge the battery pack for your drill-driver only with
the radio charger provided.
■ Make sure power supply is normal household voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
■ Connect adapter to power supply.
■ Place battery pack in charger. See Figure 4. Align
raised rib on battery pack with groove in charger.
■ Push in on battery pack to be sure contacts on battery
pack engage properly with contacts in charger. When
properly connected, red light on charger will turn on and
remain on until disconnected from power supply.
■ After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is
required to fully recharge battery pack. Note: If battery
pack is completely discharged, 6 hours or longer 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 radio charger in an area of extreme
heat or cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
■ When battery pack has been charged, disconnect
adapter from power supply and remove the battery
pack. This practice will increase battery life.
See Figure 3.
■ Connect adapter to power supply. Note: Radio does not
operate on power from your drill's battery pack.
■ Set the AM/FM Band Knob to AM or FM position.
■ Turn radio ON by turning the ON/OFF Knob in a clockwise
direction. Note: You will hear a soft click when radio
comes ON.
■ Extend the antenna if radio is selected to listen to FM. If
reception is poor, fully extend antenna and rotate in all
directions until reception improves.
■ Adjust the volume up and down by turning the Volume
Control Knob.
■ Set radio to the desired station by turning the Tuning Knob.
■ Turn radio OFF by turning the ON/OFF Knob in a
counterclockwise direction. Note: You will hear a soft click
when radio turns OFF.
