Under extreme conditions, battery leakage may occur.
When you notice liquid on the battery, proceed as follows:
- Carefully wipe the liquid off using a cloth. Avoid skin
- In case of skin or eye contact, follow the instructions
Warning! The battery fluid, a 25-30% solution of potassium
hydroxide, can be harmful. In case of skin contact, immediately
rinse with water. Neutralise with a mild acid such as lemon
juice or vinegar. In case of eye contact, rinse abundantly with
clean water for at least 10 minutes. Consult a physician.
◆ Do not incinerate the battery.
◆ Do not attempt to charge damaged batteries.
Fitting and removing a drill bit or screwdriver bit
(fig. C & F)
This tool uses screwdriver bits and drill bits with a 1/4"
(6.35) mm hexagonal shank.
◆ Lock the tool by setting the forward/reverse slider (2) to
the centre position (fig. F).
◆ Pull back the bit holder sleeve (3) (fig. C).
◆ Insert the bit shaft (7) into the bit holder.
◆ Release the bit holder sleeve.
Warning! Before drilling into walls, floors or ceilings,
check for the location of wiring and pipes.
◆ Use your Black & Decker charger only to charge the battery
in the tool with which it was supplied. Other batteries
could burst, causing personal injury and damage.
◆ Never attempt to charge non-rechargeable batteries.
◆ Have defective cords replaced immediately.
◆ Do not expose the charger to water.
◆ Do not open the charger.
◆ Do not probe the charger.
Charging the battery (fig. E)
The battery needs to be charged before first use and whenever
it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that were easily
done before.
When charging the battery for the first time, or after
prolonged storage, it will only accept an 80% charge.
After several charge and discharge cycles, the battery will
attain full capacity. The battery may become warm while
charging; this is normal and does not indicate a problem.
The charger is intended for indoor use only.
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures
below 4 °C or above 40 °C. Recommended charging
temperature: approx. 24 °C.
Electrical safety
Your charger is double insulated; therefore no earth
wire is required. Always check that the mains
voltage corresponds to the voltage on the rating
plate. Never attempt to replace the charger unit with
a regular mains plug.

higher torque setting than small screws and soft workpiece
materials. The collar has a wide range of settings to suit your
◆ Turn the collar to the desired setting. If you do not yet
know the appropriate setting, proceed as follows:
- Set the collar to the lowest torque setting.
- Tighten the first screw.
- If the clutch ratchets before the desired result is achieved,
increase the collar setting and continue tightening the
screw. Repeat until you reach the correct setting. Use this
setting for the remaining screws.
Hints for optimum use
◆ Always apply a light pressure in a straight line with the
drill bit.
◆ Just before the drill tip breaks through the other side of
the workpiece, decrease pressure on the tool.
◆ Use a block of wood to back up workpieces that may splinter.
◆ Use HSS drill bits when drilling in metal.
◆ Use a lubricant when drilling metals other than cast iron
and brass.
◆ Make an indentation using a centre punch at the centre of
the hole to be drilled in order to improve accuracy.
◆ Always use the correct type and size of screwdriver bit.
◆ If screws are difficult to tighten, try applying a small
amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant.
◆ Always hold the tool and screwdriver bit in a straight line
with the screw.
◆ When screwing in wood, it is recommended to drill a pilot
hole with a depth equal to the length of the screw.
◆ A pilot hole guides the screw and prevents splintering or
distortion of the wood. For the optimum size of the pilot
hole, refer to the table below.
When screwing in hardwood, also drill a clearance hole
with a depth equal to half the length of the screw. For the
optimum size of the clearance hole, refer to the table below.
