• Do not short circuit – A battery pack will short circuit if
a metal object makes a connection between the positive
and negative contacts on the battery pack. Do not place a
battery pack near anything that may cause a short circuit,
such as paper clips, coins, keys, screws, nails and other
metallic objects. A short-circuited battery pack poses a risk
of re and severe personal injury.
• Store your battery pack and charger in a cool, dry
place – Do not store the battery pack or charger where
temperatures may exceed 105ºF (40.5ºC), such as in
direct sunlight or inside a vehicle or metal building during
Information about the battery
1. For optimum battery performance, avoid low discharge
cycles by charging the battery pack frequently.
2. Store the battery pack in a cool place, ideally at 77°F
(25°C) and charged to at least 40%.
3. Lithium-ion batteries are subject to a natural aging
process. The battery pack must be replaced at the latest
when its capacity falls to just 80% of its capacity when
new. Weakened cells in an aged battery pack are no
longer capable of meeting the high power requirements
needed for the proper operation of your chain saw, and
therefore pose a safety risk.
4. Do not throw battery pack into an open re as this poses
a risk of explosion.
5. Do not ignite the battery pack or expose it to re.
6. Do not exhaustively discharge the battery. Exhaustive
discharge will damage the battery cells. The most
common cause of exhaustive discharge is lengthy storage
or non-use of partially discharged batteries. Stop working
as soon as the performance of the battery falls noticeably
or the electronic protection system triggers. Place the
battery pack in storage only after they have been fully
7. Protect the battery and the tool from overloads. Overloads
will quickly result in overheating and cell damage inside
the battery housing even if this overheating is not
8. Avoid damage and shocks. Immediately replace batteries
that have been dropped from a height of more than one
meter or those that have been exposed to violent shocks,
even if the housing of the battery pack appears to be
undamaged. The battery cells inside the battery may have
suered serious damage. In such instances, please read
the waste disposal information for proper battery disposal.
9. If the battery pack suers overloading and overheating,
the integrated protective cuto will switch o the
equipment for safety reasons.
IMPORTANT! Do not press the ON/OFF switch any more
if the protective cut-o has been activated. This may
damage to the battery packs.
10. Use only original battery packs. The use of other batteries
poses a re risk and may result in injuries or an explosion.
Information about the charger and the
1. Please check the data marked on the rating plate of the
battery charger. Be sure to connect the battery charger
to a power supply with the voltage marked on the rating
plate. Never connect it to a dierent mains voltage.
2. Protect the battery charger and its cord from damage.
Keep the charger and its cord away from heat, oil and
sharp edges. Have damaged cords repaired without delay
by a qualied technician at an authorized Snow Joe
dealer or call the Snow Joe
+ Sun Joe
customer service center at 1-866-SNOWJOE
3. Electrical plugs must match the outlet. Never modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with
grounded appliances. Unmodied plugs and matching
outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
4. Keep the battery charger, battery pack and the cordless
tool out of the reach of children.
5. During periods of heavy use, the battery pack will become
warm. Allow the battery pack to cool to room temperature
before connecting it to the charger to recharge.
6. Do not overcharge the battery. Do not exceed the
maximum charging times. These charging times only
apply to discharged battery. Frequent insertion of a
charged or partially charged battery pack will result in
overcharging and cell damage. Do not leave the battery in
the charger for days on end.
7. Never use or charge the battery if you suspect that it
has been more than 12 months since the last time it was
charged. There is a high probability that the battery
pack has already suered dangerous damage
8. Charging the battery at a temperature below 41°F (5°C)
will cause chemical damage to the cells and may cause a
9. Do not use battery that have been exposed to heat during
the charging process, as the battery cells may have
suered dangerous damage.
10. Do not use batteries that have suered curvature or
deformation during the charging process or those that
exhibit other atypical symptoms (gassing, hissing,
11. Never fully discharge the battery pack (maximum
recommended depth of discharge is 80%). A complete
discharge of the battery pack will lead to premature aging
of the battery cells.
