SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHARGERS AND BATTERIES
1. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. This manual contains important safety and
operating instructions for Porter-Cable Models 8604 and 8624 Battery Charger.
2. BEFORE USING A BATTERY CHARGER, read all instructions and cautionary
markings on (1) battery charger, (2) battery pack, and (3) product using battery.
3. CAUTION: To reduce risk of injury, Porter-Cable chargers should only be used to
charge Porter-Cable battery packs. Other types of batteries may burst causing
personal injury and damage.
4. DO NOT EXPOSE CHARGER to rain, snow, or frost.
5. DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never carry charger by cord or yank to disconnect from
receptacle. Pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. Have damaged
or worn power cord and strain reliever replaced immediately. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
REPAIR POWER CORD.
6. MAKE SURE CORD is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or
otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
7. DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD unless absolutely necessary. Use of
improper extension cord could result in a risk of fire and electric shock. If an extension
cord must be used, make sure:
A. That the pins on plug of extension cord are the same number, size, and shape
as those of plug on charger.
B. That the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition.
C. Wire Size of cord is at least as specified in following chart:
LENGTH OF CORD IN FEET
25
50
100
150
AWG SIZE OF CORD
18
18
18
16
D. If an extension cord is to be used outdoors it must be marked with the
suffix W-A or W following the cord type designation. For example –
SJTW-A to indicate it is acceptable for outdoor use.
8. DO NOT OPERATE charger with damaged cord or plug – have it replaced
immediately to avoid a hazard. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR POWER CORD.
9. 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.
10. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE charger or battery pack. Take it to a qualified serviceman
when service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric
shock or fire.

11. UNPLUG CHARGER from outlet before attempting any maintenance or cleaning
to reduce risk of electric shock.
12. CHARGE THE BATTERY PACK in a well ventilated place. Do not cover the
charger and battery pack with a cloth, etc., while charging.
13. DO NOT STORE the charger or battery pack in locations where the temperature
may reach or exceed 122°F/50° C (such as a metal tool shed or a car in the summer),
which can lead to deterioration of the storage battery.
14. DO NOT CHARGE BATTERY PACK when the temperature is BELOW 40°F/4° C or
ABOVE 104°F/40° C. This is very important for proper operation.
15. DO NOT INCINERATE BATTERY PACK. It can explode in a fire.
16. DO NOT CHARGE BATTERY in damp or wet locations.
17. DO NOT ATTEMPT to charge any other cordless tool or battery pack with the
Porter-Cable Model 8604 or 8624 charger.
18. DO NOT SHORT ACROSS THE TERMINALS of the battery pack: EXTREMELY
HIGH TEMPERATURES COULD CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY OR FIRE.
19. Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade
is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do
not change the plug in any way. Double Insulation
eliminates the need for
the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.
20. DISPOSE OF EXPENDED BATTERIES PROPERLY.
The Porter-Cable Battery Packs contain rechargeable nickelcadmium batteries. These batteries must be recycled or
disposed of properly. Drop off expended battery packs at
your local replacement battery retailer, your local recycling
center, or at a Porter-Cable Service Center (see list on back
page of this manual). Applicable fees for the collection and
recycling of these batteries (in the United States), have been
paid to the RBRC. For further information, call:1-800-8RBRC™ is a Trademark of the
BATTERY.

OPERATION
CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK GENERAL
Before using your cordless tool for the first time, the battery pack should be fully
charged. If the battery pack is installed in the tool, remove it by following instructions
under INSTALLING OR REMOVING BATTERY PACK.
As a battery pack approaches the discharged state, you will notice a sharp drop in tool
performance. When the tool cannot perform the task, recharge the battery pack.
Recharging the battery pack before this condition is reached will reduce the total work
life of the pack. Discharging the pack beyond this point can damage the pack.
NOTE: Battery temperature will increase during and shortly after use. Batteries
may not accept a full charge if they are charged immediately after use. Allow
the battery pack to cool to room temperature before charging for best results.
The battery charger may rest on the four pads provided on the bottom of the case or be
mounted on a wall by utilizing the two key hole slots provided.
CAUTION: Do not obstruct the vent slots in top and bottom of charger. Do not
charge battery when temperature is BELOW 40°F/4° C or ABOVE 104°F/40° C.

NORMAL CHARGING
Make sure power circuit voltage is the same as that shown on the charger specification
plate. Connect charger to power source. The green light (A) Fig. 1 should begin to flash.
This indicates the charger is ready to begin charging.
Position battery pack on charger. Align rails (A) Fig. 2 on battery pack with four tabs (C)
Fig. 1 on charger. Slide battery forward onto charger until it stops.
The green light (A) Fig. 1 should begin to glow continuously, indicating that the battery
pack is receiving a “Fast Charge” (if the green light does not glow continuously, or if the
red light (B) Fig. 1 also begins to flash, see DIAGNOSTICS). After approximately one
hour, the “Fast Charge” indicator light should go out indicating that the battery pack is
fully charged and that the charger is now in a “Trickle Charge” mode. The battery pack
can be left on “Trickle Charge” until you are ready to use it.
Depending on room temperature, line voltage, and existing charge level, initial battery
charging may take longer than one hour.
Disconnect charger from power source when not in use.
DIAGNOSTICS
The Models 8604 and 8624 Chargers are equipped with a diagnostic system that
automatically checks the battery pack each time a pack is inserted into the charger. If
no problems are found, the charger will automatically switch to “Fast Charge” mode as
described in NORMAL CHARGING. If a problem is found, it will be indicated by the
charger indicator lights (see Fig. 1) as follows:
• The green light (A) continuing to flash after battery pack is inserted in charger
indicates that the battery pack temperature is either too high or too low for charging.
If left alone, the charger will continue to monitor the battery pack temperature and will
begin charging when the temperature reaches an acceptable level.
•The green light (A) glowing continuously and the red light (B) flashing indicates the
battery pack is receiving a “Fast Charge”, but the battery pack voltage is low. It is not
unusual for a new or a fully discharged battery pack to give this indication for the first
several minutes of charge. If the red light continues to flash throughout the charge
cycle, it indicates that the pack is weak and will provide reduced performance (the
pack is still useable, but will not provide maximum power or work per charge). This
battery pack will probably require replacement in the near future.
•The green light (A) continuing to flash and the red light (B) flashing indicates the
battery pack has failed (pack is not chargeable and requires replacement).

MAINTENANCE
KEEP CHARGER CLEAN
All plastic parts should be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. NEVER use solvents to
clean plastic parts. They could very possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the
material.
SERVICE AND REPAIRS
All quality tools will eventually require servicing or replacement of parts due to wear
from normal use. These operations, including brush inspection and replacement,
should ONLY be performed by either an AUTHORIZED PORTER-CABLE SERVICE
STATION or a PORTER-CABLE SERVICE CENTER. All repairs made by these agencies
are fully guaranteed against defective material and workmanship. We cannot
guarantee repairs made or attempted by anyone other than these agencies.
Should you have any questions about your tool, feel free to write us at any time. In any
communications, please give all information shown on the nameplate of your tool
(model number, type, serial number, etc.).
