CAUTION

Be sure all batteries are correctly installed according to polarity before powering the charger.

ÔNOTE Ô

It is normal for the batteries to become warm while charging.

Charge the batteries in a location that is between 32° and 113° F (0° – 45°C). If the location is too cold, the batteries can permanently lose their ability to charge. If the location is too warm, the batteries will not be fully charged.

You cannot charge different battery types (Ni-CdorNi-MH),different capacity batteries at the same time.

If you only charge two AA batteries, place them in the same charging chamber.

If the CHARGING lights do not turn on, unplug the charger, remove the batteries, and clean their contact surfaces. Then reinstall the batteries and plug in the charger. If the problem persists, the charger may be faulty. Take the charger to your local RadioShack store.

If the CHARGING light flashes, one or more of the batteries may be defective, shorted, or an alkaline battery. Replace the battery.

If the CHARGING light turns off after several seconds, the batteries may be fully charged, or alkaline batteries.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC

Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using your charger.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
