FOR THIS REASON, IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT EACH TIME BEFORE USING THE CHARGER, YOU READ THIS MANUAL AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. b) To reduce risk of battery explosion, follow these instructions and those pub- lished by battery manufacturer and manufacturer ofany equipment you intend to use in vicinity of battery. Review cautionary marking on these products and on engine. 11. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) i) Someone should be within range of your voice or close enough to come to your aid when you work near a lead-acid battery. Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes. Wear complete eye protection and clothing protection. Avoid touching eyes while working near battery. If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If acid enters eye, immediately flood eye with running cold water for at least 1 0 minutes and get medical attention immediately. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame in vicinity of battery or engine. Be extra cautious to reduce risk of dropping a metal tool onto battery. It might spark or short-circuit battery or other electrical part that may cause explosion. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a lead-acid battery. A lead-acid battery can produce a short- circuit current high enough to weld a ring or the like to metal, causing a severe burn. Use charger for charging a LEAD-ACID battery only. It is not intended to supply power to a low voltage electrical system other than in a starter-motor application. Do not use battery charger for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home appliances. These batteries may burst and cause injury to persons and damage to property. NEVER charge a frozen battery. 3

Make sure all accessories in the vehicle are off, so as not to cause an arc. b) Be sure area around battery is well ventilated while battery is being charged. Gas can be forcefully blown away by using a piece of cardboard or other nonmetallic material as a fan. c) Clean battery terminals. Be careful to keep corrosion from coming in contact with eyes. d) Add distilled water in each cell until battery acid reaches level specified by battery manufacturer. This helps purge excessive gas from cell. Do not overfill. For a battery without cell caps, carefully follow manufacturer’s recharging instructions. e) Study all battery manufacturer’s specific precautions such as removing or not removing cell caps while charging and recommended rates of charge. f) Determine voltage of battery by referring to vehicle owner’s manual and make sure that it matches the output rating ofthe charger. 13. CHARGER LOCATION a) b) c) d) e) Locate charger as far away from battery as VDC charge cables permit. Never place charger directly above battery being charged; gases from battery will corrode and damage charger. Never allow battery acid to drip on chargerwhen reading gravity orfilling battery. Do not operate charger in a closed-in area or restrict ventilation in any way. Do not set a battery on top of charger. 14. DC CONNECTION PRECAUTIONS a) Connect and disconnect dc output wires only after interrupting 115VAC Input Power. Never allow wires to touch each other. b) Attachwiresto battery per Figure 1 ofthis manual. Foroptimal Battery Charger operation the DC charging connections require direct connection to battery undercharge. 4
