Technical Service Manager Porter-Cable Corporation 4825 Highway 45 North Jackson, TN 38305 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHARGERS AND BATTERIES 1. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. This manual contains important safety and operating instructions for Porter-Cable Models 8604 and 8624 Battery Charger. 2. BEFORE USING A BATTERY CHARGER, read all instructions and cautionary markings on (1) battery charger, (2) battery pack, and (3) product using battery. 3. CAUTION: To reduce risk of injury, Porter-Cable chargers should only be used to charge Porter-Cable battery packs. Other types of batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage. 4. DO NOT EXPOSE CHARGER to rain, snow, or frost. 5. DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never carry charger by cord or yank to disconnect from receptacle. Pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. Have damaged or worn power cord and strain reliever replaced immediately. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR POWER CORD. 6. MAKE SURE CORD is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damage or stress. 7. DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD unless absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension cord could result in a risk of fire and electric shock. If an extension cord must be used, make sure: A. That the pins on plug of extension cord are the same number, size, and shape as those of plug on charger. B. That the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition. C. Wire Size of cord is at least as specified in following chart: LENGTH OF CORD IN FEET 25 50 100 150 AWG SIZE OF CORD 18 18 18 16 D. If an extension cord is to be used outdoors it must be marked with the suffix W-A or W following the cord type designation. For example – SJTW-A to indicate it is acceptable for outdoor use. 8. DO NOT OPERATE charger with damaged cord or plug – have it replaced immediately to avoid a hazard. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR POWER CORD. 9. DO NOT OPERATE charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any way, take it to a qualified serviceman. 10. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE charger or battery pack. Take it to a qualified serviceman when service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock or fire. 2 894901 - 03-21-02.qxd 4/8/02 7:28 AM Page 3 11. UNPLUG CHARGER from outlet before attempting any maintenance or cleaning to reduce risk of electric shock. 12. CHARGE THE BATTERY PACK in a well ventilated place. Do not cover the charger and battery pack with a cloth, etc., while charging. 13. DO NOT STORE the charger or battery pack in locations where the temperature may reach or exceed 122°F/50° C (such as a metal tool shed or a car in the summer), which can lead to deterioration of the storage battery. 14. DO NOT CHARGE BATTERY PACK when the temperature is BELOW 40°F/4° C or ABOVE 104°F/40° C. This is very important for proper operation. 15. DO NOT INCINERATE BATTERY PACK. It can explode in a fire. 16. DO NOT CHARGE BATTERY in damp or wet locations. 17. DO NOT ATTEMPT to charge any other cordless tool or battery pack with the Porter-Cable Model 8604 or 8624 charger. 18. DO NOT SHORT ACROSS THE TERMINALS of the battery pack: EXTREMELY HIGH TEMPERATURES COULD CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY OR FIRE. 19. Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. Double Insulation eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply system. 20. DISPOSE OF EXPENDED BATTERIES PROPERLY. The Porter-Cable Battery Packs contain rechargeable nickelcadmium batteries. These batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly. Drop off expended battery packs at your local replacement battery retailer, your local recycling center, or at a Porter-Cable Service Center (see list on back page of this manual). Applicable fees for the collection and recycling of these batteries (in the United States), have been paid to the RBRC. For further information, call:1-800-8RBRC™ is a Trademark of the BATTERY. Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation. OPERATION CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK GENERAL Before using your cordless tool for the first time, the battery pack should be fully charged. If the battery pack is installed in the tool, remove it by following instructions under INSTALLING OR REMOVING BATTERY PACK. As a battery pack approaches the discharged state, you will notice a sharp drop in tool performance. When the tool cannot perform the task, recharge the battery pack. Recharging the battery pack before this condition is reached will reduce the total work life of the pack. Discharging the pack beyond this point can damage the pack. NOTE: Battery temperature will increase during and shortly after use. Batteries may not accept a full charge if they are charged immediately after use. Allow the battery pack to cool to room temperature before charging for best results. The battery charger may rest on the four pads provided on the bottom of the case or be mounted on a wall by utilizing the two key hole slots provided. CAUTION: Do not obstruct the vent slots in top and bottom of charger. Do not charge battery when temperature is BELOW 40°F/4° C or ABOVE 104°F/40° C. 3 894901 - 03-21-02.qxd A B 4/8/02 7:28 AM Page 4 C A Fig. 2 Fig. 1 NORMAL CHARGING Make sure power circuit voltage is the same as that shown on the charger specification plate. Connect charger to power source. The green light (A) Fig. 1 should begin to flash. This indicates the charger is ready to begin charging. Position battery pack on charger. Align rails (A) Fig. 2 on battery pack with four tabs (C) Fig. 1 on charger. Slide battery forward onto charger until it stops. The green light (A) Fig. 1 should begin to glow continuously, indicating that the battery pack is receiving a “Fast Charge” (if the green light does not glow continuously, or if the red light (B) Fig. 1 also begins to flash, see DIAGNOSTICS). After approximately one hour, the “Fast Charge” indicator light should go out indicating that the battery pack is fully charged and that the charger is now in a “Trickle Charge” mode. The battery pack can be left on “Trickle Charge” until you are ready to use it. Depending on room temperature, line voltage, and existing charge level, initial battery charging may take longer than one hour. Disconnect charger from power source when not in use. DIAGNOSTICS The Models 8604 and 8624 Chargers are equipped with a diagnostic system that automatically checks the battery pack each time a pack is inserted into the charger. If no problems are found, the charger will automatically switch to “Fast Charge” mode as described in NORMAL CHARGING. If a problem is found, it will be indicated by the charger indicator lights (see Fig. 1) as follows: • The green light (A) continuing to flash after battery pack is inserted in charger indicates that the battery pack temperature is either too high or too low for charging. If left alone, the charger will continue to monitor the battery pack temperature and will begin charging when the temperature reaches an acceptable level. •The green light (A) glowing continuously and the red light (B) flashing indicates the battery pack is receiving a “Fast Charge”, but the battery pack voltage is low. It is not unusual for a new or a fully discharged battery pack to give this indication for the first several minutes of charge. If the red light continues to flash throughout the charge cycle, it indicates that the pack is weak and will provide reduced performance (the pack is still useable, but will not provide maximum power or work per charge). This battery pack will probably require replacement in the near future. •The green light (A) continuing to flash and the red light (B) flashing indicates the battery pack has failed (pack is not chargeable and requires replacement). 4 894901 - 03-21-02.qxd 4/8/02 7:28 AM Page 5 MAINTENANCE KEEP CHARGER CLEAN All plastic parts should be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. NEVER use solvents to clean plastic parts. They could very possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the material. SERVICE AND REPAIRS All quality tools will eventually require servicing or replacement of parts due to wear from normal use. These operations, including brush inspection and replacement, should ONLY be performed by either an AUTHORIZED PORTER-CABLE SERVICE STATION or a PORTER-CABLE SERVICE CENTER.
