14. NEVER charge a frozen battery.

PREPARING TO CHARGE

RISK OF CONTACT WITH BATTERY ACID. BATTERY ACID IS A HIGHLY CORROSIVE SULFURIC ACID.
1. Be sure the area around the battery is well ventilated while the battery is being charged. Gas can be forcefully blown away by using a piece of cardboard or other nonmetallic material as a fan.
2. Clean battery terminals. Be careful to keep corrosion from coming in contact with eyes.
3. Inspect the battery for a cracked or broken case or cover. If the battery is damaged, do not use a charger.
4. If the battery is not sealed maintenance-free, add distilled water in each cell until battery acid reaches the level specified by the manufacturer. This helps purge excessive gas from cells. Do not overfill. For a battery without cell caps, carefully follow the manufacturer’s recharging instructions.
5. If necessary to remove the battery from the vehicle to charge, always remove the ground terminal from the battery first. Make sure all accessories in the vehicle are off to ensure you do not cause any arcing.
6.Study all battery manufacturer’s specific precautions such as removing or not removing cell caps while charging and recommended rates of charge.
7. Determine voltage of battery by referring to car owner’s manual and make sure it matches output rating of the battery charger.
8. If the battery and terminals have a white or bluish crust on them, the charging system may be having a problem. These problems should be corrected before the battery is replaced after charging.

CHARGER/MAINTAINER LOCATION

RISK OF EXPLOSION AND CONTACT WITH BATTERY ACID.
1. Locate charger as far away from battery as DC cables permit.
2. Never place charger directly above battery being charged. Gases from the battery will corrode and damage the charger.
3. Never allow battery acid to drip on the charger when reading gravity or filling the battery.
4. Do not operate the charger in a closed area or restrict ventilation in any way.
5. Do not set a battery on top of the charger.

SETTING UP & OPERATIONS

1. Make sure the room has plenty of ventilation.
2. Mount this charger away from any vehicle repair or service. Make sure never to start or run an engine near the batteries being charged.
3. Be sure the total amperage used by this charger should not exceed the amperage capacity of the supply source. If you do not know how to determine this,  have a qualified electrician determine the capacity for you.
4. Connect and disconnect DC output clips only after setting any charger switches to the off position and removing the AC cord from the electric outlet. Never allow clips to touch each other.
5. Make sure the battery terminals are clean. Wire brush them if necessary. Clamp the black end (NEG, -) to the negative battery terminal. Clamp the red end (POS, +) to the positive battery terminal.
6. Connect the charger to a grounded power receptacle that is wired in compliance with local electrical codes. Note that side-mounted batteries will require the insertion of a lead post adapter. Plain bolts are not safe. They will not allow for accurate reading and should not be used.

DC CONNECTION PRECAUTIONS

1. Connect and disconnect dc output clips only after removing accord from the electric outlet. Never allow clips to touch each other.
2. FOR A CHARGER HAVING AN OUTPUT VOLTAGE SELECTOR SWITCH, REFER TO THE CAR OWNER’S MANUAL IN ORDER TO
DETERMINE THE VOLTAGE OF THE BATTERY AND MAKE SURE THE OUTPUT VOLTAGE IS SET AT THE CORRECT VOLTAGE. IF AN OUTPUT VOLTAGE SELECTOR SWITCH IS NOT PROVIDED, DO NOT USE THE BATTERY CHARGER UNLESS THE BATTERY VOLTAGE MATCHES THE OUTPUT VOLTAGE RATING OF THE CHARGER.
