defect of the unit.
A battery that is new or has not been used for a
longer period does not develop its full capacity until
after approximately 5 charging/discharging cycles.
Leave such batteries in the charging compartment
until they have clearly warmed up.
A significantly reduced working period after charging
indicates that the batteries are worn out and must be
The charging procedure starts as soon as the mains
plug is plugged into the socket and the battery is
inserted into the charging compartment.
The green LED is not a charge control indicator!
When the green LED is lit, it indicates that a
charging current flows.
After the end of the charging process (approx.
3 h-4 h), pull the mains plug of the battery charger
from the socket and remove the battery.
The battery should not be charged for longer
than 5.5 hours.
A temperature increase of the battery indicates that
it is fully charged.
