NOTE:

We ship the LED flashlight without the batteries installed. Carefully install the batteries ensuring proper polarity, which is labeled on the LED flashlight housing. After installing the UPS and turning it on, charge the LED flashlight for at least 8 hours prior to use.

During the initial charge period, the LED flashlight may not function properly due to low battery charge.

Installation

NOTE: For maximum benefit, install the

Unit in an easily accessible location so you may detach the flashlight for use. Do not place anything on top of the Unit that may obscure the control panel or flashlight.

A. Connect to AC Utility Power

Plug in the AC cord to a properly grounded wall outlet. Please make sure there are no devices plugged into the Unit.

B. Charging the Battery

For best results, charge the battery for eight hours prior to initial use. The Unit charges its battery whenever it is connected to the utility power.
