Your radio uses a DEWALT battery pack which is charged by a
EWALT charger. Be sure to read all safety instructions before
using your charger. Consult the chart at the end of this manual for
compatibility of chargers and battery packs.
Charging Procedure(Fig. 1)
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate
outlet before inserting the battery pack.
2. Insert the battery pack (J) into the
charger, as shown in Figure 1, making
sure the pack is fully seated in
charger. The red (charging) light will
blink continuously, indicating that the
charging process has started.

Indicator Light Operation
PROBLEM PACK OR CHARGER
This charger is designed to detect certain problems that can arise.
Problems are indicated by the red light flashing at a fast rate. If this
occurs, re-insert the battery pack into the charger. If the problem
persists, try a different battery pack to determine if the charger is
working properly. If the new pack charges correctly, then the original
pack is defective and should be returned to a service center or other
collection site for recycling. If the new battery pack elicits the same
trouble indication as the original, have the charger and the battery
pack tested at an authorized service center.
This charger has a hot/cold delay feature: when the charger detects a
battery that is hot, it automatically starts a delay, suspending charging
until the battery has cooled. After the battery has cooled, the charger
automatically switches to the pack charging mode. This feature
ensures maximum battery life. The red light flashes long, then short
while in the hot/cold delay mode.
LEAVING THE BATTERY PACK IN THE CHARGER
The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the charge
indicator showing Pack Charged.
WEAK BATTERY PACKS: Weak batteries will continue to function
but should not be expected to perform as much work.
FAULTY BATTERY PACKS: This charger will not charge a faulty
battery pack. The charger will indicate faulty battery pack by refusing
to light or by displaying problem pack or charger.
NOTE: This could also mean a problem with a charger.
