  2. Always connect charge output lead to non-grounded battery post first (not connected to chassis) and then connect opposite lead to the chassis, away from the battery, and particularly away from the fuel line and carburetor.
  3. Always disconnect the chassis lead first after charging battery. Do not overcharge the battery beyond manufacturer's specifications. See instruction manual for details.
  4. Do not smoke, strike match, cause sparks or use open flame near battery during charging. Use in well ventilated area.
