• Never leave the appliance to charge unsupervised. who might put the batteries in their mouth (they contain poisonous heavy metals). This will prevent the batteries from overheating prematurely. Safety instructions. If the appliance is not working or is damaged. Never expose the appliance to other sources of heat. since these are not always able to assess the dangers correctly. First disconnect the appliance from the power supply and allow the batteries to cool before taking them out. Batteries can represent a considerable danger for children.e. Never touch batteries when they are hot – they might explode while they are being taken out.2. Otherwise there could be danger of death from electric shock. there are no operating elements inside. Warning! Risk of accident! Do not allow children or elderly persons to play with the appliance unsupervised. Never open the casing. This will avoid some of the batteries becoming fully charged and overheating while the others are still charging. Have it repaired by customer service. Overcharged or faulty batteries can overheat and explode. same size and same capacity. • • • • • • • . or shortcircuit them while playing with them. it should no longer be used. such as direct sunshine or heaters. Batteries become hot once they are fully charged. same level of charge. If the power cord is damaged: The power cord cannot be repaired – have it replaced by customer service before using the appliance again. 3 • Set up the appliance in dry rooms only. If you are charging a number of batteries at the same time: Always insert only batteries that are similar. i. never in humid areas. batteries of the same type.

a) Inserting batteries • Place the batteries the right way up. Never charge other types of batteries . If you would like to test the other batteries as well. The test indicator lightat the symbol is lit brightly if the battery is sufficiently charged.4. NiMH are not susceptible to the "memory effect". • Then. Otherwise the charging process cannot start. connect the power plug to the power socket. a "memory effect" is created. even if these are "rechargeable". where the batteries reduce their capacity to the lower level at which they are actually used. to the position with the "partly charged batteries" symbol. Such batteries require a quite different type of technology! If you place these batteries in NiCd/NiMH battery chargers. b) Test the batteries first! If you do not know how charged or discharged your batteries are. If the test indicator light is lit only faintly or not at all. then the battery is almost completely discharged or flat. Note: Only insert the battery in the slot on the far left is tested. Charging batteries Danger: Only charge batteries identified by the letters "NiCd" or "NiMH" . you can test them as follows: Move the switch to the far left. Otherwise. 5 . NiCd batteries should only be recharged when they are almost completely discharged. they must be inserted one after the other into this slot. they can overheat and explode. as indicated in the charging slots.

. This will provide sufficient protection against flying battery parts in the event of an explosion due to overheating. meanwhile testing the batteries a few times. If all batteries have been placed correctly. The Discharge feature is only available at the four charging slots for 1. A faulty battery can overheat and then explode. Important: Do not allow NiCd batteries to become completely discharged. do not allow the batteries to discharge until the test indicator light goes off completely. as this may ruin them. then the battery is faulty.. Danger! If a charge indicator LED is not lit.2 V batteries – not for 9 V batteries.. move the switch to the far right.. d) Charging batteries If you have inserted the batteries the right way up. • Only charge with the cover closed. as described at paragraph a) . attempt to charge a faulty battery. If you have inserted up to 4 NiCd batteries. Allow the NiCd batteries to discharge until the test indicator light is barely lit.c) Discharge NiCd batteries first NiCd batteries that are not fully discharged should be discharged first. move the switch to the center. • connect the power plug to the power socket. 6 . to avoid the possibility of "memory effects". and . Therefore. the charge indicator LED lights up at each charging slot. Do not. to the position with the "Charge" symbol. even though the battery has been correctly inserted. to the position with the "Discharge" symbol. • Connect the power plug to the power socket. in any circumstances.

as they would become overcharged and overheat. set the knob to the maximum charging time of "15 h".2V charging slots over to trickle charge after the pre-selected maximum charging time. 100 mAh 5-11 hrs. 7 Warning: Batteries with a capacity of not more than 300 mAh should not be charged for more than 2 hours. you can use the automatic cut-out feature. You can therefore charge completely different batteries at the same time – provided you observe the different charging times. You can take the values in the following table as a rough guide: 1. Turn the knob to about the time required (you can determine this time by referring to the table opposite). and the green LED indicator at the "Battery" symbol is fully lit. f) Charging time: Automatic cut-out If you have loaded four batteries of the same type in the 1. .2V charging slots. the appliance switches the 1. With this feature. 3000 mAh 15 hrs. please refer to the technical data for information about the charging current required. 150 mAh 8-15 hrs. 1200 mAh 9 hrs. At the end of the charging time. the appliance switches over to trickle charge.5-2 hrs. All charging slots and 9 V connections have separate charging current controls. If you wish to calculate the time exactly. 1700 mAh 9 hrs.2V NiMH battery Charging time: 9V NiCd battery Charging time: 9V NiMH battery Charging time: 650 mAh 3 hrs. 1. 500 mAh 3 hrs. required for batteries with different capacities. If you do not want to use this function.2V NiCd battery 300 mAh Charging time: 1.e) Keep to the charging time! The best protection against battery overheating is not to exceed the proper charging time. This function is available for the 9V connections only.

Disposal Before disposing of the appliance.5. 7. deposits can accumulate over time at the terminals. These should not be disposed of with the household waste. as they are chrome-plated and therefore dirt resistant. • first disconnect the power plug from the power socket. Taking out batteries When charging is complete and you wish to take out the batteries. • wait until the batteries have cooled. Take the appliance and batteries to your dealer. Batteries can also leak and damage the appliance. disconnect the plug from the power socket and remove all batteries from the charging slots. depending on the quality of the battery. Never use cleaning agents or solvents. and particularly to the labelling and plexiglas cover. Caution: If you do not take out the batteries. Storage If you are not going to use the appliance for a long period. 6.. . • Store the appliance in a dry place. 8 8. or to a suitable recycling center. take out any batteries remaining inside. Cleaning and Care Clean the appliance only when the plug has been disconnected from the power socket and all the batteries have been taken out. • The terminals do not require cleaning. • Clean the appliance only with a dry cloth.. These may cause damage to the appliance. • take out the batteries. .
