Initial Charging Procedure (AC Adapter Only)

Use AC charging adapter indoors in a dry location only. Exposure to damp or wet conditions   

could cause electrocution or damage to adapter.

Do not use charging adapter in combination with any extension cord, electrical generators, or step-up  

transformers. Always plug AC cord directly into a 110-120 V 60Hz AC outlet in a suitable location.

Normal Charging Procedure (AC Adapter)

1.) Set light on its base so it is standing vertically. Plug adapter into charging jack (Fig.2). 
2.) Plug adapter into 110-120 VAC, 60 Hz outlet. 
3.) Locate charging indicator LED (Fig.2). When adapter is properly plugged into charging jack and AC  

  outlet, indicator LED will glow red. 
4.) Charge for 4 hours or until charging indicator LED glows green. To prevent overheating, do not

  charge for more than 8 hours.
5.) Unplug AC adapter from electrical outlet, then disconnect from worklight. 


The worklight is shipped with a minimal charge in the internal battery pack. The Initial   

 Charging Procedure must be completed before first use to ensure proper battery life and 

performance. Failure to follow described charging procedures could permanently damage the internal 

battery pack. AC and DC charging adapters are for re-charging battery only. They cannot be used to 

directly power the worklight. 

1.) Set light on its base so it is standing vertically. Plug adapter  

  into charging jack on base of worklight (see Fig.2). 
2.) Plug AC adapter into 110-120 VAC, 60 Hz outlet. 
3.) Locate charging indicator LED (Fig.2). When adapter is properly  

  plugged into charging jack and AC outlet, indicator LED will glow red. 
4.) Charge unit for 8 hours. Indicator LED may glow green before 

  initial charge is complete. It is important to complete a full 8 hour 

  charge regardless of indicator LED color. To prevent 

  overheating, remove from charge after 8 hours.
5.) When operating for the first time, allow unit to run until battery is  

  discharged (light is dim or dark).
6.) The Initial Charging Procedure is now complete. To recharge unit,  

  refer to Normal Charging Procedure below.

Notes on Charging

Charge after each significant use. Do not store unit for long periods of time with battery in uncharged 

condition as damage to battery could result. 
This product contains an internal Nickel-Metal Hydride battery pack and must be recharged every 

30-45 days to ensure optimum performance.
If you have followed charging instructions as described above and experience unsatisfactory 

performance, consult the troubleshooting guide.

DC Charging Adapter

The DC Charging Adapter is not intended as a primary charging source. Since charging times can 

be significantly longer, it is recommended that the DC Charging Adapter be used only when there 

is no AC power source available.

1.) Set light on stable surface. Plug adapter into charging jack on base of worklight. 
2.)  Plug DC adapter into vehicle lighter/12 VDC accessory socket. Locate charging indicator LED

  (Fig. 2). When adapter is properly plugged into charging jack and 12 VDC accessory  


  outlet, charging indicator LED will glow red. To prevent overheating, do not  charge for more  

  than 8 hours. 
3.) When indicator LED glows green, unit is fully charged. Disconnect DC adapter from 12 VDC outlet,  

  then from worklight.

DC charging adapter can be used in almost any vehicle or portable DC power station by plugging into 

lighter/12 VDC accessory power socket. Consult vehicle or power station owner’s manual for more 

information on operating 12 VDC accessories. Do not drive vehicle while charging worklight. Unsecured 

worklight may move suddenly around passenger compartment becoming a hazard during certain 

driving maneuvers.
Do not allow charging adapter to come in contact with water, rain, or snow. Store in dry location only. 

If charging adapter does come in contact with water, place in a dry location at room temperature on 

a soft, absorbent towel and allow to thoroughly dry. If it becomes submerged in water, discontinue 

use. Contact Michigan Industrial Tools or your local retailer for a replacement charging adapter. 
Use only the DC Charging Adapter supplied with worklight. Attempting to charge worklight with an 

adapter that is not compatible could result in fire, damage to worklight, or personal injury.

DC Charging Safety Precautions

Mode1 (6 LED Flashlight): Use on/off switch 

(Fig.1) to operate the 6 LED flashlight head. 

On a full battery charge, 6 LEDs will operate 

up to 8 hours (Fig.3). 
Mode 2 (30 LED Worklight): Extend body to 

operate 30 LEDs, retract to shut off. On a full 

battery charge, 30 LEDs will operate up to 

3 hours (Fig.3).

Using the Worklight: 

Two Operating Modes

Do not allow charging adapter to come in contact with water, rain, or snow. Store in dry location only. If 

charging adapter does come in contact with water, place in a dry location at room temperature on a soft, 

absorbent towel and allow to thoroughly dry. Do not operate until it is completely free of moisture. If it 

becomes submerged in water, discontinue use immediately. Contact Michigan Industrial Tools or your 

local retailer for a replacement charging adapter.

This product contains an internal Nickel-Metal Hydride battery pack 

and  must be recharged every 30-45 days to ensure optimum 

performance. If product is stored for long periods of time and not 

charged regularly the batteries may become permanently damaged.

Batteries do not hold a 

charge, LED lights are very 

dim or do not emit any light 

at all.

The Charging Indicator LED displays an estimate of battery condition 

during charging, and is not a precise measurement of battery capacity. 

If you are experiencing any of the problems listed, it may be due to 

an overly sensitive charging indicator. The unit may still charge and 

operate normally. Try charging the unit for 6 hours, disregarding the 

behavior of the charging indicator LED. Remove from charge after 6 

hours and use normally. If you are satisfied with the performance 

continue using 6 hour charging cycles for your worklight.

Charging Indicator LED 

does not change from red 

to green, flashes from red 

to green during charging, or 

glows green too quickly.

Be sure the charging cord is completely seated into the charging jack 

on the worklight and that the AC adapter is completely seated into a 

110-120 VAC wall outlet. If the wall outlet is controlled by a wall switch 

be sure it is turned on. If you are using the DC adapter check your 

automobile manual for proper DC outlet operation. 

Charging indicator LED 

does not light up at all.
