Charging the Cork Remover Unit It is recommended that the Cork Remover is charged for at least 8 hours before using it for the first time. Please follow the instructions for charging the unit below: • Connect the DC Power Plug into the DC Power Socket at the back of the Charging Base. • Place the Cork Remover Unit into the Charging Base. Ensure that the arrows on the Unit and Base align with each other so that the electrical connections are made correctly. • Insert the AC/DC Adapter into a mains socket and switch on the supply. • The Charging Indicator will illuminate blue, indicating that the battery is charging. It will take 6-8 hours to fully charge the battery. • The Charging Indicator will remain lit whilst ever there is power to the Charging Base and the Cork remover is in position. • Switch off the supply and remove the AC/DC Adapter from the mains socket. Remove the DC Power Plug from the Charging Base. The Cork Remover can be used to open up to 40 bottles when fully recharged. 2. Opening a Wine Bottle Before extracting the cork, please remove any seal from the bottle using the Foil Cutter provided (See Fig. 2) Figure 2 Place the Cork Remover on top of the wine bottle making sure that it remains as upright as possible at all times. If you hold the Cork Remover at an angle to the bottle it will not remove the cork properly. (See Fig. 3) Figure 3 • • Hold the Cork Remover and bottle firmly. Press and hold the Pull Button. The corkscrew spiral will turn in a clockwise direction and enter the cork, then gradually remove it from the bottle. When the Cork Remover mechanism stops, the cork will be visible through the transparent window and the blue indicator will go off. Lift the Cork Remover away from the bottle. To remove the cork simply press and hold the release Button and the spiral will turn in an anticlockwise direction and release the cork. (See Fig. 4) Figure 4 • Return the Cork Remover to the Charging Base when not in use, so as to protect the mechanism. • The Cork Remover is designed for use with traditional corks, but it may be used with synthetic corks as well. Synthetic corks are smaller and do not expand like normal cork so sometimes they may stick on the spiral. If this happens, hold the cork firmly with a small pair of pliers. Press the Release Button as normal and allow the cork to be slowly released. CARE & MAINTENANCE Wipe the Cork Remover Unit and Charging Base with a soft, dry cloth. Do not immerse any part of your Cork Remover in water. To maintain the life of the battery, it is recommended that the unit is run until the battery is flat and then fully re-charged.
