Battery + Charger Safety Instructions

We pay a great deal of attention to the design of every battery pack to ensure that we supply you with batteries that are safe, durable and have a high energy density. The battery cells have a wide range of safety devices. Each individual cell is initially formatted and its electrical characteristic curves are recorded. This data is then used exclusively to be able to assemble the best possible battery packs. Despite all the safety precautions, caution must always be exercised when handling batteries. The following points must be obeyed at all times to ensure safe use. Safe use can only be guaranteed if undamaged cells are used. Incorrect handling of the battery pack can cause cell damage.
IMPORTANT
Analyses confirm that incorrect use and poor care of high-performance batteries are the main factors responsible for personal and/or product damage.
WARNING
 Use only approved replacement batteries; other batteries may damage the cordless drill/driver and cause it to malfunction, which can lead to serious personal injury.
CAUTION
To reduce the risk of injury, charge the iON+ 24V lithium-ion battery pack only in its designated iON+ 24V lithium-ion charger. Other types of chargers present risk of fire, personal injury and damage. Do not wire a battery pack to a power supply plug or car cigarette lighter. Such misuse will permanently disable or damage the battery pack.

  •  Avoid dangerous environments – Do not charge the battery pack in rain, snow or in damp or wet locations. Do not use the battery pack or charger in the presence of explosive atmospheres (gaseous fumes, dust or flammable materials) because sparks may be generated when inserting or removing the battery pack, which could lead to a fire.
  •  Charge in a well-ventilated area – Do not block the charger vents. Keep them clear to allow for proper ventilation. Do not allow smoking or open flames near a charging battery pack. Vented gases may explode.

    use rubber or neoprene gloves to safely dispose of it. If skin is exposed to battery fluids, wash the affected area with soap and water and rinse with vinegar. If eyes are exposed to battery chemicals, immediately flush with water for 20 minutes and seek medical attention. Remove and dispose of contaminated clothing.
  •  Do not short circuit – When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire. Store your battery pack and charger in a cool,
    dry place – Do not store the battery pack or charger where temperatures may exceed 105ºF (40.5ºC), such as in direct sunlight or inside a vehicle or metal building during the summer.

Information about the battery

  1. The battery pack supplied with your cordless power tool is only partially charged. The battery pack has to be charged completely before you use the tool for the first time.
  2.  For optimum battery performance, avoid low discharge cycles by charging the battery pack frequently.
  3. Store the battery pack in a cool place, ideally at 77°F (25°C) and charged to at least 40%.
  4. 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 cordless drill/driver, and therefore pose a safety risk.
  5. Do not throw battery packs into an open fire as this poses a risk of explosion.
  6.  Do not ignite the battery pack or expose it to fire.
  7.  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.
  8.  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.
  9.  Avoid damage and shocks. Immediately replace batteries that have been dropped from a height of more than 3 feet (1 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
  12. Use appliances only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
  13. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns. (This advice is considered correct
    for conventional NiMh, NiCd, lead acid and lithium-ion cell types. If this advice is incorrect for a cell design
    that differs from these, then the correct advice may be substituted.)
  14. Do not use a battery pack or appliance that is damaged or modified. Damaged or modified batteries may exhibit unpredictable behavior resulting in fire, explosion or risk of injury.
  15.  Do not expose a battery pack or appliance to fire or excessive temperature. Exposure to fire or temperature above 266ºF (130°C) may cause explosion.
  16. Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the battery pack or appliance outside of the temperature range specified in the instructions. Charging improperly or at temperatures outside of the specified range may damage the battery and increase the risk of fire.

Information about the charger and the charging process

  1. Please check the data marked on the rating plate of the battery charger. Be sure to connect the battery charger to a power supply with the voltage marked on the rating plate. Never connect it to a different mains voltage.
  2. Protect the battery charger and its cord from damage. Keep the charger and its cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges. Have damaged cords repaired without delay by a qualified technician at 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).
  3.  Electrical plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with grounded appliances. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.
  4.  Keep the battery charger, battery pack(s) and the cordless tool out of the reach of children.
  5. Do not use the supplied battery charger to charge other cordless tools.
  6.  During periods of heavy use, the battery pack will become warm. Allow the battery pack to cool to room temperature before inserting it into the charger to recharge.
  7. Do not overcharge batteries. Do not exceed the maximum charging times. These charging times only apply to discharged batteries. Frequent insertion of a charged or partially charged battery pack will result in overcharging and cell damage. Do not leave batteries in the charger for days on end.
  8. Never use or charge batteries if you suspect that it has been more than 12 months since the last time they were charged. There is a high probability that the battery pack has already suffered dangerous damage (exhaustive discharge).
  9.  Charging batteries at a temperature below 41°F (5°C) will cause chemical damage to the cells and may cause a fire.
  10.  Do not use batteries that have been exposed to heat during the charging process, as the battery cells may have suffered dangerous damage.
  11.  Do not use batteries that have suffered curvature or deformation during the charging process or those that exhibit other atypical symptoms (gassing, hissing, cracking, etc.).
  12. Never fully discharge the battery pack (maximum recommended depth of discharge is 80%). A complete discharge of the battery pack will lead to premature aging of the battery cells.

NOTE:
A whistling or ringing noise coming from the switch during use is a normal part of the switch function.

  • Running at low speeds under constant usage may cause the drill to become overheated. If this occurs, cool the drill by running it without a load and at full speed.

Speed Settings

    1.  Select low speed (1) for applications requiring higher power and torque, such as driving screws and drilling in metal .
      SUNJOY-Cordless-2-Speed-Drill-Driver-Kit-16
    2. Select high speed (2) for fast drilling or driving applications, for drilling in wood or masonrySUNJOY-Cordless-2-Speed-Drill-Driver-Kit-16

 CAUTION
Never change speeds while the tool is running. Failure to obey this caution could result in serious damage to the drill.
NOTE:
If you have difficulty changing from one speed range to the other, turn the chuck by hand until the gears engage.
Adjusting Torque
Select the proper torque setting by aligning the adjustment ring with the indicator arrow to suit the type of material and size of screw you are using .

  1. Check the direction of rotation selector for the correct setting (forward or reverse).
  2. Select low speed (1) or high speed (2), depending on your application. Refer to Speed Settings and Adjusting Torque.
  3. Secure the workpiece in a vise or with clamps to keep it from turning as the bit rotates.
  4. Hold the drill firmly and place the bit at the point to be drilled, or where the screw is to be driven.
    WARNING
    Do not drive a screw where there is likely to be hidden wiring behind the surface. Contact with a “live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and possibly shock the operator. If you must drive a screw where hidden wire may be present, always hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces (handle) when performing the operation to prevent a shock to the operator.
  5. Depress the switch trigger to start the drill.
  6. Move the bit into the workpiece, applying only enough pressure to keep the bit cutting or driving the screw. Do not force the drill or apply side pressure to elongate a hole. Let the tool do the work.
    WARNING
     When drilling, be prepared for binding at bit breakthrough. When these situations occur, drill has a tendency to grab and kick opposite to the direction of rotation and could cause loss of control when breaking through material. If not prepared, this loss of control can result in possible serious injury.
  7. When drilling hard, smooth surfaces, use a center punch to mark the desired hole location. This will prevent the bit from slipping off-center as the hole is started.
  8. If the bit jams in the workpiece or if the drill stalls, stop the tool immediately. Remove the bit from the workpiece and determine the reason for jamming.

NOTE:
This drill has an electric brake. When the switch trigger is released, the chuck stops turning. When the brake is functioning properly, sparks will be visible through the vent slots on the housing. This is normal and is the action of the brake.
Wood + Metal Drilling
For maximum performance, use high speed steel bits for wood or metal drilling. Select drilling mode. Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit from slipping off the starting point.

Wood Drilling
  1.  Increase the speed as the drill bit bites into the material.
  2.  When drilling through holes, place a block of wood behind the workpiece to prevent ragged or splintered edges on the back side of the hole.
Metal and Steel Drilling
  1. Use a light oil on the drill bit to keep it from overheating. The oil will prolong the life of the bit and increase the drilling action.
  2. Maintain a speed and pressure which allows cutting without overheating the bit. Applying too much pressure will:
    •  Overheat the drill;
    •  Wear the bearings;
    •  Bend or burn bits; and
    •  Produce off-center or irregular-shaped holes.
  3.  When drilling large holes in metal, start with a small bit, then finish with a larger bit.

Cleaning + Maintenance

WARNING
When servicing, use only identical replacement parts. Use of any other part could create a hazard or cause product damage.

  •  To avoid accidents, always disconnect the tool and/or charger from the power supply before cleaning.

Ventilation openings and trigger switch must be kept clean and free of foreign matter. Do not attempt to clean by inserting pointed objects through opening.

CAUTION
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of commercial solvents and can be damaged by their use. Use clean cloths to remove dirt, dust, oil, grease, etc.
