 Ensurethe switch is inthe offpositionbeforeinserting
battery pack. Inserting the battery pack into machines
that have the switch on can cause accidents.
 Keep the battery charger away from rain or moisture.
Penetration of water in the battery charger increases the
risk of an electric shock.
 Recharge only with the charger specified by the manu-
facturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery
pack may create a risk of fire when used with another bat-
tery pack.
 Do not charge other batteries. The battery charger is
suitable only for charging Bosch lithium ion batteries with-
inthelistedvoltagerange.Otherwisethereisdangeroffire
and explosion.
 Keep the battery charger clean. Contamination can lead
to danger of an electric shock.
 Before each use, check the battery charger, cable and
plug. If damage is detected, do not use the battery
charger. Never open the battery charger yourself.
Have repairs performed only by a qualified technician
and only using original spare parts. Damaged battery
chargers, cables and plugs increase the risk of an electric
shock.

 Do not operate the battery charger on easily inflamma-
ble surfaces (e. g., paper, textiles, etc.) or surround-
ings. The heating of the battery charger during the charg-
ing process can pose a fire hazard.
 Use only Bosch battery packs intended specifically for
the machine. Use of any other battery packs may create a
risk of injury and fire.
 When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from oth-
er 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.
 Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from
the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally oc-
curs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, addition-
ally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery
may cause irritations or burns.
 Do not open the battery. Danger of short-circuiting.
 Protect the battery against heat, e. g., against continu-
ous intense sunlight, fire, water, and moisture. Danger
of explosion.
 Donotshort-circuitthebattery.Thereisdangerofexplo-
sion.
 In case of damage and improper use of the battery, va-
pours may be emitted. Ventilate the area and seek
medical help in case of complaints. The vapours can irri-
tate the respiratory system.

Mounting and Operation
Starting
For Your Safety
 Warning: Switch off and remove battery from machine
before adjusting or cleaning.
 The blade continues to rotate for a few seconds after
the cordless trimmer is switched off. Allow the mo-
tor/blade to stop rotating before switching “on” again.
 Do not rapidly switch off and on.
 Only use Bosch approved cutting elements. Cutting
performance will vary with different cutting elements.
Battery Charging
 Do not use other battery chargers. The supplied battery
charger is designed for the Lithium-Ion battery in your gar-
den product.
 Observe the mains voltage! The voltage of the power
supply must correspond with the data given on the name-
plate ofthe battery charger. Battery chargers markedwith
230 V can also be operated with 220 V.
The battery is equipped with temperature monitoring that al-
lows charging only in the temperature range between 0 °C
and 45 °C. In this manner, a high battery service life is
achieved.
Note: The battery is supplied partially charged. To ensure full
capacity of the battery, completely charge the battery in the
batterychargerbeforeusingyourpowertoolforthefirsttime.
The lithium-ion battery can be charged at any time without re-
ducing its service life. Interrupting the charging procedure
does not damage the battery.
The“ElectronicCellProtection(ECP)”protectsthelithiumion
battery against deep discharging. When the battery is run
down or discharged, the garden product is shut off by means
of a protective circuit: The blade no longer moves.
Do not continueto pressthe On/Off
switchafterthegardenproducthas
been automatically switched off. The battery can be dam-
aged.
Battery charge-control indication
The battery charge-control indicator on the handle of the
product will indicate a low charge condition of the battery by
flashingthreetimeswhentheOn/Offswitchispressed.Ifthis
occurs, please remove the battery and recharge.
Charging Procedure
The charging procedure starts as soon as the mains plug is
plugged into the socket and the battery is then inserted into
the battery charger .
Due to the intelligent charging method, the charging condi-
tionofthebatteryisautomatically detectedandthebatteryis
charged with the optimum charging current, depending on
battery temperature and voltage.
This gives longer life to the battery and always leaves it fully
charged when kept in the charger for storage.
Note: The charging procedure is only possible when the bat-
tery temperature is within the allowable charging tempera-
ture range, see section “Technical Data”.
Flashing Battery Charge Indicator
The charging procedure is signalled by a
flashing battery charge indicator .
ContinuousLightingoftheBatteryChargeIndica-
tor
Continuous lighting of the battery
charge indicator indicates that the
battery is fully charged or that the
temperature of the battery is not with-
in the allowable charging temperature range, and cannot be
charged for this reason. The battery is charged as soon as the
allowable charging temperature range is reached.
When the battery is not inserted, continuous lighting of the
battery charge indicator indicates that the mains plug is in-
serted in the socket and that the battery charger is ready for
operation.
Charging Advice
With continuous or several repetitive charging cycles without
interruption, the charger can warm up. This is not meaningful
and does not indicate a technical defect of the battery charg-
er.
A significantly reduced working period after charging indi-
cates that the battery is used and must be replaced.
