SCREWDRIVER BIT INSERTION
Select the screwdriver tip that best fits the fastener to be removed or installed. Place the bit into the screwdriver collet and ensure it is in all the way. The cordless screwdriver ONLY accepts 1/4 in. hex-shaft screwdriver bits.
The cordless screwdriver should only be used as a screwdriver. DO NOT attempt tom use the tool as a drill using drill bits with 1/4 in. hex-shafts. The cordless screwdriver does not have the speed necessary to be used as a drill.
The internal battery is not fully charged. Before first use. the battery requires 5-8 hours charge time to be fully charged. Subsequent recharging needs 3-5 hours for the battery to be fully charged.
Always recharge internal battery when tool performance begins to diminish. Severe heat is most destructive to a battery; the more
heat generated, the faster the battery loses power. A battery that gets too hot can have a shortened life.
Never over-discharge a battery by using the tool even after tool performance has decreased. Do not attempt to discharge a tool’s battery by continuing to pull on the tool trigger. When tool performance begins to diminish, stop the tool and recharge the battery for optimal performance.
Charge internal battery at ambient temperatures between +50°F(10°C)-95°F(35°C). Store tool and battery in locations where temperatures will not exceed 120°F. This is important to prevent serious damage to the battery cells.
