Information about the battery
- The battery pack supplied with your cordless garden sprayer is only partially charged. The battery pack has to be charged completely before you use the tool for the first time.
- For optimum battery performance, avoid low discharge cycles by charging the battery pack frequently.
- Store the battery pack in a cool place, ideally at 77°F
(25°C) and charged to at least 40%.
- Lithium-ion batteries are subject to a natural aging process. The battery pack must be replaced at the latest when its capacity falls to just 80% of its capacity when new. Weakened cells in an aged battery pack are no longer capable of meeting the high power requirements needed for the proper operation of your garden sprayer, and therefore pose a safety risk.
- Do not throw battery packs into an open fire as this poses a risk of explosion.
- Do not ignite the battery pack or expose it to fire.
- Do not exhaustively discharge batteries. Exhaustive discharge will damage the battery cells. The most common cause of exhaustive discharge is lengthy storage or non-use of partially discharged batteries. Stop working as soon as the performance of the battery falls noticeably or the electronic protection system triggers. Place the battery pack in storage only after it has been fully charged.
- Protect batteries and the tool from overloads. Overloads will quickly result in overheating and cell damage inside the battery housing even if this overheating is not apparent externally.
- Avoid damage and shocks. Immediately replace batteries that have been dropped from a height of more than one meter or those that have been exposed to violent shocks, even if the housing of the battery pack appears to be undamaged. The battery cells inside the battery may have suffered serious damage. In such instances, please read the waste disposal information for proper battery disposal.
- If the battery pack suffers overloading and overheating, the integrated protective cutoff will switch off the equipment for safety reasons. IMPORTANT! Do not press the ON/OFF switch any more if the protective cut-off has been activated. This may damage the battery pack.
- Use only original battery packs. The use of other batteries poses a fire risk and may result in injuries or an explosion.

Proper Care for Battery + Charger
To reduce the risk of injury, always unplug the charger and unplug the battery pack from the charger before performing any maintenance task. Never disassemble the battery pack or charger. Contact your Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® dealer or the Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® customer service center for ALL repairs.
- To reduce the risk of injury and damage, never immerse your battery pack or charger in liquid or allow any liquid to flow inside these components.
- Clean out dust and debris from charger vents and electrical contacts by blowing with compressed air.
- Use only mild soap on a damp cloth to clean the battery pack and charger, keeping away from all electrical contacts. Certain cleaning agents and solvents are harmful to plastics and other insulated parts. Some of these include gasoline, turpentine, lacquer thinner, paint thinner, chlorinated cleaning solvents, ammonia and household detergents containing ammonia. Never use flammable or combustible solvents around battery packs, battery chargers or tools.
- The 24V lithium-ion charger (XZ2600-0450) has no serviceable parts.
- 1. Examine the cordless garden sprayer thoroughly for worn, loose or damaged parts. Should you need to repair or replace a part, contact an authorized Snow Joe® +=Sun Joe® dealer or call the Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® customer service center at 1-866-SNOWJOE (1-866-766-9563) for assistance.
- Remove the battery from the cordless garden sprayer before storing.
- Store the cordless garden sprayer indoors in a locked, ventilated, dry place out of the reach of children to prevent unauthorized use or damage.
Battery + Charger Off-Season Storage
- Do not expose your battery pack or charger to water, rain or allow them to get wet. This could permanently damage the charger and the battery pack. Do not use oil or solvents to clean or lubricate your battery pack as the plastic casing can become brittle and crack, causing a serious risk of injury.
- Store the battery pack and charger at room temperature away from moisture. Do not store in damp locations where corrosion of terminals may occur. As with other battery pack types, permanent capacity loss can result if the pack is stored for long periods of time at high temperatures
- iON+ 24VBAT-LTW lithium-ion battery packs maintain their charge during storage longer than other battery pack types. As a general practice, it is best to unplug the battery charger and remove the battery pack when they are not in use. Recharge the battery pack every 6 months to 50% capacity (2 lights on) during off-season storage to maintain optimal battery performance.
Battery Caution + Disposal
- Always dispose of your battery pack according to federal, state, and local regulations. Contact a recycling agency in your area for recycling locations.
- CAUTION Even discharged battery packs contain some energy. Before disposing, use electrical tape to cover the terminals to prevent the battery pack from shorting, which could cause a fire or explosion.
- WARNING To reduce the risk of injury or explosion, never burn or incinerate a battery pack even if it is damaged, dead or completely discharged. When burned, toxic fumes and materials are emitted into the surrounding atmosphere.
