WARNING: Do not store or carry battery so that metal objects can contact exposed battery terminals.
For example, do not place battery in aprons, pockets, tool boxes, product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with loose nails, screws, keys, etc. without battery cap. Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently come in contact with conductive materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like.

UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So when transporting individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit. run-time than standard battery packs. Consult the chart at the end of this manual for compatibility of chargers and battery packs.
NOTE: Your tool will accept either standard or Extended Run Time battery packs. However, be sure to select proper voltage. Batteries slowly lose their charge when they are not on the charger, the best place to keep your battery is on the charger at all times.
The battery pack is not fully charged out of the carton. Before using the battery pack and charger, read the safety instructions below. Then follow charging procedures outlined.
Important Safety Instructions for Battery
Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension cord could result in risk of fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or
American Wire Gauge) for safety. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that is 16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge. When using more than one extension to make up the total length, be sure each individual extension contains at least the minimum wire size.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS: This manual contains important safety instructions for battery chargers.
Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on charger, battery pack, and product using battery pack.
DANGER: Electrocution hazard. 120 volts are present at charging terminals. Do not probe with conductive objects. Electric shock or electrocution may result.
WARNING: Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get inside charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: Burn hazard. To reduce the risk of injury, charge only
DEWALT nickel cadmium rechargeable batteries. Other types of batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage.
CAUTION: Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged in to the power supply, the exposed charging contacts inside the charger can be shorted by foreign material. Foreign materials of a conductive nature such as, but not limited to, steel wool, aluminum foi
