 Do not operate charger with a damaged cord or
plug, which could cause shorting and electric shock. If
damaged, have the charger replaced by an authorized
serviceman.
 Use charger only with recommended battery packs.
 Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow,
been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any way. Take
it to an authorized serviceman for electrical check to
determine if the charger is in good working order.
 Do not use charger outdoors or expose to wet or damp
conditions. Water entering charger will increase the risk
of electric shock.
 Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by the

fire, electric shock, or injury to persons. Following this
rule will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or serious
personal injury.
 Do not disassemble charger. Take it to an authorized
serviceman when service or repair is required. Incorrect
reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
 Unplug charger from outlet before attempting
any maintenance or cleaning to reduce the risk of
electric shock.
 Do not abuse cord or charger. Never use the cord to
carry the charger. Do not pull the charger cord rather than
the plug when disconnecting from receptacle. Damage
to the cord or charger could occur and create an electric
shock hazard. Replace damaged cords immediately.
 Disconnect charger from the power supply when
not in use. This will reduce the risk of electric shock or
damage to the charger if metal items should fall into the
opening. It also will help prevent damage to the charger
during a power surge.
 Make sure cord is located so that it will not be stepped
on, tripped over, come in contact with sharp edges
or moving parts or otherwise subjected to damage or
stress. This will reduce the risk of accidental falls, which
could cause injury, and damage to the cord, which could
result in electric shock.
 Risk of electric shock. Do not touch uninsulated portion
of output connector or uninsulated battery terminal.
 Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently
and use them to instruct others who may use this
tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them these
instructions also to prevent misuse of the product and
possible injury.
 Keep cord and charger from heat to prevent
damage to housing or internal parts.
 Do not let gasoline, oils, petroleum-based products,
etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They contain
chemicals that can damage, weaken, or destroy plastic.

EVALUATING
(YELLOW / GREEN LED)

CHARGED
(GREEN LED)
CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
Battery packs, sold separately, are shipped in a low charge
condition to prevent possible problems. Therefore, you
should charge them until the green LED on the front of the
charger comes on.
NOTE: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time they
are charged. Allow several cycles (operation followed by
recharging) for them to become fully charged.
CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
If battery pack is within normal temperature range, the red
LED on charger will come on.
NOTE: If the charger does not charge the battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack
and charger to your nearest authorized service center for
electrical check.
 Charge the battery pack only with the charger provided.
 Make sure the power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
 Connect the charger to the power supply.
 Place the battery pack in the charger aligning raised rib
on the battery pack with the groove in the charger. See
Figure 2.
 Press down on the battery pack to be sure contacts on
the battery pack engage properly with contacts in the
charger.
 Normally the red LED on charger will come on. This
indicates the charger is in fast charging mode.
 Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour
then the green LED will come on. Green LED on
indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is
in maintenance charge mode.
NOTE: The green LED will remain on until the
battery pack is removed from the charger or charger is
disconnected from the power supply.
 If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
 After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.
 The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
 Do not place the charger and battery pack in an area of
extreme heat or cold. They will work best at normal room
temperature.

(BATTERY SOLD SEPARATELY)
QUICK CHARGE
(RED LED)

NOTE: The charger and battery pack should be placed
in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F
but less than 100°F.
 When batteries become fully charged, unplug the
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.
CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
When using a tool continuously, the batteries in the battery
pack will become hot. You should let a hot battery pack cool
down for approximately 30 minutes before attempting to
recharge. When the battery pack becomes discharged and
is hot, this will cause the green LED to come on instead of
the red LED. After 30 minutes, reinsert the battery pack in
the charger. If the green LED continues to remain on, return
battery pack to your nearest authorized service center for
checking or replacing.
NOTE: This situation only occurs when continuous use of a
tool causes the batteries to become hot. It does not occur
under normal circumstances. Refer to CHARGING A COOL
BATTERY PACK for normal recharging of batteries. If the
charger does not charge your battery pack under normal
circumstances, return both the battery pack and charger to
your nearest authorized service center for electrical check.
