Battery Pack
The supplied battery pack is a Terminals
lithium-ion battery. Before using
the supplied battery pack or an
optional battery pack, be sure
to read the following cautions:
• To avoid hazards
... do not burn.
... do not short-circuit the terminals. Keep it away
from metallic objects when not in use. When
transporting, make sure the provided battery
cap is attached to the battery. If the battery cap
is misplaced, carry the battery in a plastic bag.
... do not modify or disassemble.
... do not expose the battery to temperatures
exceeding 60°C (140°F), as this may cause the
battery to overheat, explode or catch fire.
... use only specified chargers.
• To prevent damage and prolong service life
... do not subject to unnecessary shock.
... charge within the temperature range of 10°C
to 35°C (50°F to 95°F). Cooler temperatures
require longer charging time, or in some cases
stop charging at all.
Warmer temperatures prevent complete
charging, or in some cases stop charging at all.
... store in a cool, dry place. Extended exposure
to high temperatures will increase natural
discharge and shorten service life.
... keep a 30% battery level (X) if the battery pack
is not to be used for a long period of time.
In addition, fully charge and then fully discharge
the battery pack every 6 months, then continue
to store it at a 30% battery level (X).
... remove from charger or powered unit when not
in use, as some machines use current even
when switched off.
... do not drop or subject to strong impact.
