Technical Data
Assembly
Battery Charging
 Useonly the batterychargers listed on the accessories
page. Only these battery chargers are matched to the lith-
ium-ion battery pack used in your vacuum cleaner.
Note: The battery supplied is partially charged. To ensure full
capacity of the battery, completely charge the battery in the
batterychargerbeforeusingyourpowertoolforthefirsttime.
The battery must be removed from the vacuum cleaner to
charge it.
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 lithium-ion battery is protected against deep discharging
by the “ElectronicCell Protection(ECP)”.Whenthe battery is
empty, the machine is switched off by means of a protective
circuit: The inserted tool no longer rotates.
 After the automatic shut-off of the vacuum cleaner, do
not continue to press the On/Off button. The battery
pack could become damaged.
The battery is equipped with a NTC temperature control
which allows charging only within a temperature range of be-
tween 0 °C and 45 °C. A long battery service life is achieved
in this manner.
Observe the notes for disposal.
Removing the battery (see figures A1 – A2)
The battery 6 is equipped with two locking levels that should
prevent the battery from falling out when pushing the battery
unlocking button 13 unintentionally. As long as the battery is
inserted in the power tool, it is held in position by means of a
spring.
– To remove the battery pack 6, press the battery unlocking
button 13 and pull the battery pack toward the rear out of
the vacuum cleaner. Do not exert any force when doing
this.
