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

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.

MAINTENANCE
BATTERIES
Your worklight's battery pack is equipped with nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. 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.

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.
