A cold battery pack will charge at about half the rate of a warm battery pack. The battery pack will
charge at that slower rate throughout the entire charging cycle and will not return to maximum
charge rate even if the battery warms.
7.8 Lithium-Ion Battery Packs only
The tools are designed with an Electronic Protection System that will protect the battery
against overloading, overheating or deep discharge.
The tool will automatically turn off if the Electronic Protection System engages. If this occurs,
place the lithium-ion battery on the charger until it is fully charged.
7.9 Important Safety Instructions for all Battery Packs
When ordering replacement battery packs, be sure to include the catalog number and voltage.
The battery pack is not fully charged out of the carton. Before using the battery pack and
charger, read the safety instructions below. Then follow charging procedures outlined.
► Do not charge or use battery in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence
of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Inserting or removing the battery from the charger
may ignite the dust or fumes.
► Never force the battery pack into charger. Do not modify the battery pack in any way to
fit into a non-compatible charger as battery pack may rupture causing serious personal
injury.
► Charge the battery packs only in designated chargers.
► DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other liquids.
► Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature may
reach or exceed 40˚C (104°F) (such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
WARNING
Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason. If the battery pack case is cracked or
damaged, do not insert it into the charger. Do not break, drop or damage battery pack. Do not
use a battery pack or charger that has received a sharp blow, been dropped, run over or
damaged in any way (i.e., pierced with a nail, hit with a hammer, stepped on). Electric shock or
electrocution may result. Damaged battery packs should be returned to the service centre for
recycling.
CAUTION
When not in use, place tool on its side on a stable surface where it will not cause a
tripping or falling hazard. Some tools with large battery packs will stand upright on the battery
pack but may be easily knocked over.

7.10 Specific Safety Instructions for all Lithium-Ion
► Do not incinerate the battery pack even if it is severely damaged or is completely worn
out. The battery pack can explode in a fire. Toxic fumes and materials are created when lithium
ion battery packs are burned.
► If battery contents come into contact with the skin, immediately wash the area with mild
soap and water. If the battery liquid gets into the eye, rinse water over the open eye for 15
minutes or until irritation ceases. If medical attention is needed, the battery electrolyte is
composed of a mixture of liquid organic carbonates and lithium salts.
► Contents of opened battery cells may cause respiratory irritation.
Provide fresh air. If symptoms persists, seek medical attention.
WARNING
Burn hazard. Battery liquid may be flammable if exposed to spark or flame.
7.11 Transportation
Batteries comply with all applicable shipping regulations as prescribed by industry and legal
standards which include UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods;
International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations, International
Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Regulations, and the European Agreement Concerning the
International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). Lithium-ion cells and batteries have
been tested to section 38.3 of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods
Manual of Tests and Criteria.
In most instances, shipping a battery pack will be excepted from being classified as a fully
regulated Class 9 Hazardous material. In general, the two instances that require shipping
Class 9 are:
1
Air shipping more than two lithium-ion battery packs when the package contains only battery
packs (no tools), and
2
Any shipment containing a lithium-ion battery with an energy rating greater than 100 watt
hours (Wh). All lithium-ion batteries have the watt hour rating marked on the pack.
Regardless of whether a shipment is considered excepted or fully regulated, it is the
shipper’s responsibility to consult the latest regulations for packaging, labeling/marking
and documentation requirements.
Transporting batteries can possibly cause fire if the battery terminals inadvertently come in
contact with conductive materials. When transporting batteries, make sure that the battery
terminals are protected and well insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a
short circuit.
The information provided in this section of the manual is provided in good faith and believed to be
accurate at the time the document was created. However, no warranty, expressed or implied, is
given. It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that its activities comply with the applicable
regulations.
