or any buildup of metallic particles should be
kept away from charger cavities. Always
unplug the charger from the power supply
when there is no battery pack in the cavity.
Unplug charger before attempting to clean.
WARNING: DO NOT attempt to
charge the battery pack with any
chargers other than the ones in this
manual. The charger and battery pack are
specifically designed to work together.
• These chargers are not intended for any
uses other than charging designated
BLACK+DECKER rechargeable batteries.
Any other uses may result in risk of fire,
electric shock or electrocution.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Pull by plug rather than cord when
disconnecting charger. This will reduce
risk of damage to electric plug and cord.
• Make sure that cord is located so that it
will not be stepped on, tripped over, or
otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
• Do not use an extension cord unless
it is absolutely necessary. Use of
improper extension cord could result in
risk of fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
• An extension cord must have adequate
wire size (AWG or American Wire
Gauge) for safety. The smaller the gauge
number of the wire, the greater the capacity
of the cable, that is 16 gauge has more
capacity than 18 gauge. When using more
than one extension to make up the total
length, be sure each individual extension
contains at least the minimum wire size.

• Do not operate charger with damaged cord
or plug — have them replaced immediately.
• Do not operate charger if it has
received a sharp blow, been dropped,
or otherwise damaged in any way.
Take it to an authorized service center.
• Do not disassemble charger; take it
to an authorized service center when
service or repair is required. Incorrect
reassembly may result in a risk of electric
shock, electrocution or fire.
• Disconnect the charger from the outlet
before attempting any cleaning. This will
reduce the risk of electric shock. Removing
the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect 2 chargers
• The charger is designed to operate on
standard household electrical power
(120 Volts). Do not attempt to use it on
any other voltage.
