Other types of batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage. ■ ■ ■ IMPORTANT SAFETY RULES FOR BATTERY TOOLS ■ ■ ■ USE ONLY THE CHARGER RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH YOUR WORKLIGHT. Do not substitute any other charger. Use of another charger could cause batteries to explode causing possible serious injury. Your battery tool should be charged in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F but less than 100°F. Under extreme usage or temperature conditions, 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. ■ ■ WARNING: Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in the presence of a source of ignition, such as a pilot light. To reduce the risk of serious personal injury, never use any cordless product in the presence of open flame. An exploded battery can propel debris and chemicals. If exposed, flush with water immediately. ■ ■ WARNING: Never use a battery pack that has been damaged or received a sharp blow. A damaged battery pack is subject to explosion. Properly dispose of a damaged battery pack immediately. Failure to heed this warning can result in serious personal injury. ■ Before using battery charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings in this manual, on battery charger, and product using battery charger. ■ ■ ■ WHEN SERVICING USE ONLY IDENTICAL CRAFTSMAN REPLACEMENT PARTS. Do not expose to wet or damp conditions. To reduce the risk of damage to charger body and cord, pull by charger plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. 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) 25' 50' 100' Cord Size (AWG) 16 16 16 Note: AWG = American Wire Gage DO NOT OPERATE CHARGER WITH A DAMAGED CORD OR PLUG.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS 3 OPERATION ■ BATTERY PACK/CHARGER The battery pack and charger are not included with your worklight. They are both sold separately. When purchasing, use the following information: MODEL NO. BATTERY PACK CHARGER 973.110470 Item No. 9 11375 Item No. 9 11041 (1310715) (1425301) 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 PACK 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. 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. ■ If both yellow and green LED come on, this indicates a deeply discharged or defective battery pack. 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 room temperature. Note: Charger and battery pack should be placed in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F but less than 100°F. When batteries become fully charged, unplug charger from power supply and remove the battery pack. IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RECHARGING HOT BATTERY PACK 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.

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. To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the following: ■ To preserve natural resources, please recycle or dispose of batteries properly. This product contains nickelN i Cd cadmium batteries. Local, state or 00 .822.88 federal laws may prohibit disposal of nickel-cadmium batteries in ordinary trash. Consult your local waste authority for information regarding available recycling and/or disposal options. BATTERY PACK REMOVAL AND PREPARATION FOR RECYCLING ■ ■ C YC R ER B R CL E 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. 1.8 37 WARNING: Upon removal, cover the battery pack's terminals with heavy duty adhesive tape. Do not attempt to destroy or disassemble battery pack or remove any of its components. Nickelcadmium batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly. Also, never touch both terminals with metal objects and/or body parts as short circuit may result. Keep away from children. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire and/or serious injury. WARNING: Do not attempt to disassemble the battery pack. Fire or injury may result. 7 Get it fixed, at your home or ours!
