Information about the battery
Information about the charger and the
charging process
1. The battery pack supplied with your cordless power tool is
only partially charged. The battery pack has to be charged
completely before you use the tool for the first time.
1. Please check the data marked on the rating plate of the
battery charger. Be sure to connect the battery charger
to a power supply with the voltage marked on the rating
plate. Never connect it to a different mains voltage.
2. For optimum battery performance, avoid low discharge
cycles by charging the battery pack frequently.
2. Protect the battery charger and its cord from damage.
Keep the charger and its cord away from heat, oil and
sharp edges. Have damaged cords repaired without delay
by a qualified technician at an authorized Snow Joe® +
Sun Joe® dealer or call the Snow Joe® + Sun Joe®
customer service center at 1-866-SNOWJOE
3. Store the battery pack in a cool place, ideally at 59°F
(15°C) and charged to at least 40%.
4. Lithium-ion batteries are subject to a natural aging
process. The battery pack must be replaced at the latest
when its capacity falls to just 80% of its capacity when
new. Weakened cells in an aged battery pack are no
longer capable of meeting the high power requirements
needed for the proper operation of your cordless air
compressor, and therefore pose a safety risk.
3. Electrical plugs must match the outlet. Never modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with
grounded appliances. Unmodified plugs and matching
outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
5. Do not throw battery packs into an open fire as this poses
a risk of explosion.
4. Keep the battery charger, battery pack(s) and the cordless
tool out of the reach of children.
6. Do not ignite the battery pack or expose it to fire.
7. Do not exhaustively discharge batteries. Exhaustive
discharge will damage the battery cells. The most
common cause of exhaustive discharge is lengthy storage
or non-use of partially discharged batteries. Stop working
as soon as the performance of the battery falls noticeably
or the electronic protection system triggers. Place the
battery pack in storage only after it has been fully charged.
5. Do not use the supplied battery charger to charge other
cordless tools.
6. During periods of heavy use, the battery pack will become
warm. Allow the battery pack to cool to room temperature
before inserting it into the charger to recharge.
7. Do not overcharge batteries. Do not exceed the maximum
charging times. These charging times only apply to
discharged batteries. Frequent insertion of a charged or
partially charged battery pack will result in overcharging
and cell damage. Do not leave batteries in the charger for
days on end.
8. Protect batteries and the tool from overloads. Overloads
will quickly result in overheating and cell damage inside
the battery housing even if this overheating is not
apparent externally.
9. Avoid damage and shocks. Immediately replace batteries
that have been dropped from a height of more than
3 feet (1 meter) or those that have been exposed to violent
shocks, even if the housing of the battery pack appears to
be undamaged. The battery cells inside the battery may
have suffered serious damage. In such instances, please
read the waste disposal information for proper battery
8. Never use or charge batteries if you suspect that it has
been more than 12 months since the last time they were
charged. There is a high probability that the battery pack
has already suffered dangerous damage (exhaustive
9. Charging batteries at a temperature below 41°F (5°C) will
cause chemical damage to the cells and may cause a fire.
10. If the battery pack suffers overloading and overheating,
the integrated protective cutoff will switch off the
equipment for safety reasons.
10. Do not use batteries that have been exposed to heat
during the charging process, as the battery cells may have
suffered dangerous damage.
IMPORTANT! Do not press the ON/OFF switch any more
if the protective cut-off has been activated. This may
damage the battery pack.
11. Do not use batteries that have suffered curvature or
deformation during the charging process or those that
exhibit other atypical symptoms (gassing, hissing,
cracking, etc.).
11. Use only original battery packs. The use of other batteries
poses a fire risk and may result in injuries or an explosion.
12. Never fully discharge the battery pack (maximum
recommended depth of discharge is 80%). A complete
discharge of the battery pack will lead to premature aging
of the battery cells.
Protection from environmental influences
1. Wear suitable work clothes. Wear safety goggles.
2. Protect your cordless tool and the battery charger from
moisture and rain. Moisture and rain can cause dangerous
cell damage.
3. Do not use the cordless tool or the battery charger near
vapors and flammable liquids.
4. Use the battery charger and cordless tools only in dry
conditions and at an ambient temperature of 41 – 105°F
(5 – 40.5°C).
5. Do not keep the battery charger in places where the
temperature is liable to reach over 104°F (40°C). In
particular, do not leave the battery charger in a car that is
parked in the sunshine.
6. Protect batteries from overheating. Overloads,
overcharging and exposure to direct sunlight will result
in overheating and cell damage. Never charge or work
with batteries that have been overheated – replace them
immediately, if possible.
7. Store the charger and your cordless tool only in dry
locations with an ambient temperature of 40-105°F
(4.5-40.5°C). Store your lithium-ion battery pack in a cool,
dry place at a temperature of 50-68°F (10-20°C). Protect
the battery pack, charger and cordless tool from humidity
and direct sunlight. Only place fully charged batteries in
storage (charged to at least 40%).
8. Prevent the lithium-ion battery pack from freezing. Battery
packs that were stored below 32°F (0°C) for more than 60
minutes must be discarded.
9. When handling batteries, be wary of electrostatic charge.
Electrostatic discharges can damage the electronic
protection system and the battery cells. Avoid electrostatic
charging and never touch the battery poles.
