1.10 Warning: risk of explosive gases.
a. Working in vicinity of a lead-acid battery is dangerous. batteries generate explosive gases during normal battery operation. for this reason, it is of utmost importance that you follow the instructions each time you use the charger.
b. To reduce risk of battery explosion, follow these instructions and those published by battery manufacturer and manufacturer of any equipment you intend to use in vicinity of battery. Review cautionary markings on these products and on the engine.
2. Personal Safety Precautions
2.1 Consider having someone close enough by to come to your aid when you work near a lead-acid battery.
2.2 Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
2.3 Wear complete eye protection and clothing protection. Avoid touching eyes while working near battery.
2.4 If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If acid enters eye, immediately flood eye with running cold water for at least 10 minutes and get medical attention immediately.
2.5 NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame in vicinity of battery or engine.
2.6 Be extra cautious to reduce risk of dropping a metal tool onto battery. It might spark or short-circuit battery or other electrical part that may cause explosion.
2.7 Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a lead-acid battery. A lead-acid battery can produce a short-circuit current high enough to weld a ring or the like to metal, causing a severe burn.
2.8 Use the charger for charging only LEAD-ACID (STD or AGM) rechargeable batteries. It is not intended to supply power to a low voltage electrical system other than in a starter-motor application.

4.3 Never allow battery acid to drip on charger when reading electrolyte specific gravity or filling battery.
4.4 Do not operate charger in a closed-in area or restrict ventilation in any way.
4.5 Do not set a battery on top of charger.
5. Maintenance And Care
● A minimal amount of care can keep your battery charger working properly for years.
