electric shock.
2. Know your power tool. Read operator’s manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as well
tool – Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock, re, or serious injury.

Safety Instructions
NOTE: This unit is a core tool. The battery and the charger are
not included. They must be purchased separately.
Model 24V-DD-CT is compatible with the iON+ 24V System
batteries and chargers. See page 14 for more information.
We pay a great deal of attention to the design of every battery
pack to ensure that we supply you with batteries that are safe,
durable and have a high energy density. The battery cells have
a wide range of safety devices. Each individual cell is initially
formatted and its electrical characteristic curves are recorded.
This data is then used exclusively to be able to assemble the
best possible battery packs.
Despite all the safety precautions, caution must always be
exercised when handling batteries. The following points must
be obeyed at all times to ensure safe use. Safe use can only
be guaranteed if undamaged cells are used. Incorrect handling
of the battery pack can cause cell damage.
IMPORTANT! Analyses conrm that incorrect use and poor
care of high-performance batteries are the main factors
responsible for personal and/or product damage.
mWARNING! Use only approved replacement batteries;
other batteries may damage the cordless drill/driver and cause
it to malfunction, which can lead to serious personal injury.
mCAUTION! To reduce the risk of injury, charge the
Sun Joe
24V lithium-ion battery pack only in its designated

Charge in a well-ventilated area – Do not block the
charger vents. Keep them clear to allow for proper
ventilation. Do not allow smoking or open ames near a
charging battery pack. Vented gases may explode.
