When using the CG-800 Battery Charger, an ambient temperature between 10 °C and 30 °C (50 °F and 86 °F) is recommended. For safety reasons, charging outside of the recommended temperature range may result in considerably longer charging times. Charging will not start if either the battery or ambient temperature is outside of an approximate 5 °C to 35 °C (41 °F to 95 °F) range.
