HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY PACK

When using the charger, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:

Battery and Charging Safety

To reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, battery explosion, or injury:

1. Basic information and warning for the Battery and Charger are contained below. For detailed usage and warning information, read the HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY

PACK carefully before using this unit.

2. DO NOT expose battery pack to temperatures above 122°F (50°C). Never leave battery packs in automobiles on hot days, where temperatures can be much higher than the outside temperature.

3. DO NOT use or store vacuum or batteries in wet or moist conditions, or with flammable or combustible materials.

4. DO NOT charge batteries or store battery for extended periods, 1 month or more, in temperatures above

90°F (32°C) or below 40°F (5°C).

5. When charging, make sure that the charger has at least 6 inches of clearance on all sides. Adequate airflow is required to cool the charger when use.

6. DO NOT use a damaged cord or plug for charging.

7. DO NOT pull on charger’s cord to unplug. Grasp and pull the plug, not the cord.

8. DO NOT handle the charger’s cord plug with wet hands when inserting into electrical outlet.

9. Keep sparks and flames away from batteries. Do not smoke near batteries or charger.

- 9 -

10. DO NOT charge the unit outdoors.

11. DO NOT attempt to repair, service, or modify the battery system or charger. Contact the service with any issues.

12. DO NOT short-circuit the battery or charger terminals with conductive items such as paper clips. This can deliver high current, resulting in heat and fire.

13. DO NOT crush, drop, incinerate or damage the battery pack. DO NOT use a battery pack that has been damaged in any way. DO NOT incinerate the battery even if it is severely damaged or non-working. The battery can explode in a fire.

SPECIFICATIONS AND PARTS

Charger Specification:

Charger input: 120V 50/60Hz AC only

Charger output: 30V 1A

Battery Specification:

Lithium Polymer chemistry 25.2V

Approximate charge time: 8 hours

Approximate run time for new battery: 30 minutes.

(1.Battery pack) (2.Charger)

OPERATION

Charge in a well ventilated area. DO NOT block charger vents. Keep them clear to allow proper ventilation.

CHARGING LITHIUM POLYMER BATTERY PACKS

Lithium Polymer batteries deliver fade-free power for their entire run time. The GV vacuum will not gradually lose power due to decreasing battery charge. The vacuum will perform at its normal performance level until the battery has been depleted. Once this happens, recharging of the battery is required. It is not necessary to drain the battery pack completely before recharging.

If the charger’s light is not lit at any point during the charging process, remove the battery pack from the charger to avoid damaging the product. DO NOT insert another battery.

Contact the service with any issues.

BATTERY PROTECTION FEATURE

The 25.2-volt Lithium Polymer batteries are designed with features that protect the Lithium Polymer cells and maximize battery life. When the battery has reached its minimum voltage level the electronics will shut off the battery. Once the battery shuts off, it must be recharged.

PREPARING BATTERY PACK FOR CHARGING

1. Turn off the power switch. Confirm the switch is on the off position.

2. Unlock the battery pack from the vacuum by pulling up on the metal battery hook located on the top of the battery, and take the battery pack out from the vacuum. (Fig 17)

3. Plug the round connector on the charger’s cord into the battery pack. (Fig 18)

4. Plug the charger’s power cord into 120V wall outlet (Fig 19)

5. The Battery pack may require approximately 8 hours to full charge.

Note: Battery pack may get warm while charging.

Before you assemble the battery pack back into the vacuum, please check the on/off switch is on the off position.

HOW TO CLEAN AND REPLACE THE VORTEX & HEPA FILTER(s)

There are two filters in this unit, the intake Vortex filter & the exhaust HEPA filter. When the filters are dirty and the suction power is reduced, you must clean or replace the filter(s).

Clean and replace the Vortex Intake filter

1. Open the top Vortex chamber cover by rotating the cover counterclockwise. (Fig 12)

2. Pull the Vortex filter from the chamber by rotating it counterclockwise to unlock it, and then pull it up and out of the unit. (Fig 12)

3. Clean the filter using warm water, then allow the filter to air dry completely. Once the filter has completely air dried, then assemble the filter back into the Vortex chamber. Or, if the filter is too dirty or in an unusable condition, replace the filter with a new one.

NOTE: The Prolux Vortex filter only needs to be cleaned when the entire surface of the filter becomes dirty. Due to its highly efficient design the Vortex filter is 3x more efficient than standard filters and will have the same amount of airflow whether it’s dirty or clean. The entire surface of the filter will have to be covered in debris before the performance of the vacuum is affected, and the filter needs to be cleaned.

- 12 -

Clean and replace the exhaust HEPA filter

1. Open the exhaust cover by rotating in count clockwise. (Fig 13)

2. Put the exhaust HEPA out of the unit. (Fig 13)

3. Clean the filter, using warm water and allow air-drying completely, and then assembling the filter back into the unit. Or, if the filter is too dirty or in an unusable condition, replace the filter with a new one.
