WARNING: BURN HAZARD.
BATTERY LIQUID MAY BE FLAMMABLE
IF EXPOSED TO SPARK OR FLAME.
Charge the battery packs only in
DO NOT splash or immerse in water
This may cause
premature cell failure.
Do not store or use the tool and
temperature may reach or exceed
WARNING: NEVER ATTEMPT TO
OPEN THE BATTERY PACK FOR ANY
REASON. IF BATTERY PACK CASE IS
CRACKED OR DAMAGED, DO NOT
INSERT INTO CHARGER. DO NOT CRUSH,
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). DAMAGED
BATTERY PACKS SHOULD BE RETURNED
TO SERVICE CENTER FOR RECYCLING.
WARNING: FIRE HAZARD. DO
NOT STORE OR CARRY BATTERY SO
THAT METAL OBJECTS CAN CONTACT
EXPOSED BATTERY TERMINALS. FOR
EXAMPLE, DO NOT PLACE BATTERY IN
APRONS, POCKETS, TOOL BOXES,
PRODUCT KIT BOXES, DRAWERS, ETC.,
WITH LOOSE NAILS, SCREWS, KEYS,
ETC. TRANSPORTING BATTERIES CAN
POSSIBLY CAUSE FIRES IF THE
BATTERY TERMINALS INADVERTENTLY
COME IN CONTACT WITH CONDUCTIVE
HAND TOOLS AND THE LIKE. THE US
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
HAZARDOUS MATERIAL REGULATIONS
(HMR) ACTUALLY PROHIBIT
TRANSPORTING BATTERIES IN
COMMERCE OR ON AIRPLANES (I.E.,
PACKED IN SUITCASES AND CARRY-ON
LUGGAGE) UNLESS THEY ARE
PROPERLY PROTECTED FROM SHORT
CIRCUITS. SO WHEN TRANSPORTING
INDIVIDUAL BATTERIES, MAKE SURE
THAT THE BATTERY TERMINALS ARE
PROTECTED AND WELL INSULATED
FROM MATERIALS THAT COULD
CONTACT THEM AND CAUSE A SHORT
CIRCUIT. NOTE: BATTERIES SHOULD
NOT BE PUT IN CHECKED BAGGAGE.
1. The best storage place is one that is
cool and dry away from direct sunlight
and excess heat or cold.
2. Long-term storage will not harm the
battery pack or the charger as long as
the battery is not depleted..
BLACK+DECKER chargers are designed
to charge BLACK+DECKER battery packs:
LCS36 (2 hrs), LCS436 (6 hrs).
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate
outlet before inserting the battery pack.
2. Insert the battery pack into the charger.
3. The green LED will flash indicating
that the battery is being charged.
4. The completion of charge
is indicated by the green LED
remaining on continuously. The
pack is fully charged and may be used at
this time or left on the charger.
This charger is designed to detect certain
problems that can arise with the battery packs
or the power source. Problems are indicated
by one LED flashing in different patterns.
The charger can detect a weak
or damaged battery. The red LED
flashes in the pattern indicated on the
label. If you see this bad battery blink
pattern, do not continue to charge the
battery. Return it to a service center or a
collection site for recycling.
HOT/COLD PACK DELAY
When the charger detects a
battery that is excessively hot or
excessively cold, it automatically starts
a Hot/Cold Pack Delay, suspending
charging until the battery has normalized.
After this happens, the charger
automatically switches to the Pack
Charging mode. This feature ensures
maximum battery life. The red LED flashes
in the pattern indicated on the label when
the hot / cold pack delay is detected.
IMPORTANT CHARGING NOTES
1. Longest life and best performance
can be obtained if the battery pack is
charged when the air temperature is
between 60°F and 80°F (16°- 27°C).
DO NOT charge the battery pack in an
air temperature below +40°F (+4.5°C),
or above +105°F (+40.5°C). This is
important and will prevent serious
damage to the battery pack.
2. The charger and battery pack may
become warm to touch while charging.
This is a normal condition, and does
not indicate a problem. To facilitate the
cooling of the battery pack after use,
avoid placing the charger or battery pack
in a warm environment such as in a
