10. 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 the battery pack.
11. 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(s) and the cordless
tool out of the reach of children.
5. Do not use the supplied battery charger to charge other
6. During periods of heavy use, the battery pack will become
warm. Allow the battery pack to cool to room temperature
before inserting it into the charger to recharge.
7. Do not overcharge batteries. Do not exceed the maximum
charging times. These charging times only apply to
discharged batteries. Frequent insertion of a charged or
partially charged battery pack will result in overcharging
and cell damage. Do not leave batteries in the charger for
days on end.
8. Never use or charge batteries if you suspect that it has
been more than 12 months since the last time they were
charged. There is a high probability that the battery pack
has already suered dangerous damage (exhaustive
9. Charging batteries at a temperature below 50°F (10°C) will
cause chemical damage to the cells and may cause a re.
10. Do not use batteries that have been exposed to heat
during the charging process, as the battery cells may have
suered dangerous damage.
11. Do not use batteries that have suered curvature or
deformation during the charging process or those that
exhibit other atypical symptoms (gassing, hissing,
12. 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.
Protection from environmental inuences
1. Wear suitable work clothes. Wear safety goggles.
2. Protect your cordless tool and the battery charger from
moisture and rain. Moisture and rain can cause dangerous
3. Do not use the cordless tool or the battery charger near
vapors and ammable liquids.
4. Use the battery charger and cordless tools only in dry
conditions and at an ambient temperature of 40-105°F
5. Do not keep the battery charger in places where the
temperature is liable to reach over 104°F (40°C). In
particular, do not leave the battery charger in a car that is
parked in the sunshine.
6. Protect batteries from overheating. Overloads,
overcharging and exposure to direct sunlight will result
in overheating and cell damage. Never charge or work
with batteries that have been overheated – replace them
immediately, if possible.
7. Store the charger and your cordless tool only in dry
locations with an ambient temperature of 40-105°F
(4.5-40.5°C). Store your lithium-ion battery pack in a cool,
dry place at a temperature of 50-68°F (10-20°C). Protect
the battery pack, charger and cordless tool from humidity
and direct sunlight. Only place fully charged batteries in
storage (charged to at least 40%).
8. Prevent the lithium-ion battery pack from freezing. Battery
packs that were stored below 32°F (0°C) for more than 60
minutes must be discarded.
9. When handling batteries, be wary of electrostatic charge.
Electrostatic discharges can damage the electronic
protection system and the battery cells. Avoid electrostatic
charging and never touch the battery poles.
