GENERAL SAFETY RULES
important safety instructions
 If wrapped or in contact with fabrics, the spotlight lens
can produce sufficient heat to melt some fabrics. To
avoid serious personal injury, never allow the spotlight
lens to come in contact with anything.
 Keep light dry, clean, and free from oil and grease.
Always use a clean cloth when cleaning. Never use brake
fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based products, or any strong
solvent to clean the spotlight.
Don’t expose spotlight to rain. Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock or malfunction.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the spotlight in unexpected situations. Do not
use on a ladder or unstable support.
Do not leave the spotlight unattended while in the ON
position.
WARNING!
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
WARNING!
When using electric appliances, basic precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
 Read all the instructions before using the appliance.
 To reduce the risk of injury, close supervision is
necessary when an appliance is used near children.
 To reduce the risk of electrical shock, do not put
spotlight or charger in water or other liquid. Do not
place or store appliance where it can fall or be pulled into
a tub or sink.
 Use only the charger supplied by the manufacturer to
recharge.
Spotlight USE AND CARE

SAFETY RULES FOR BATTERY SpotlightS
 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.
 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.
 Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Do not
use a battery pack or charger that has been dropped
or received a sharp blow. A damaged battery is subject
to explosion. Properly dispose of a dropped or damaged
battery immediately. Failure to heed this warning can
result in serious personal injury.
If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced only by the manufacturer or by an authorized
service center to avoid risk.
 Risk of burns-do not touch. Risk of fire-keep away
from combustible materials.
 The lens gets very hot during use. To reduce the risk of
burns, do not touch hot lens. To reduce the risk of fire, keep
away from combustible materials while in operation.
 Do not shine spotlight into the eyes.
