Tip & How-To about Worx 10" 24v Cordless Li-ion Trimmer/edger wg165

WORX battery chargers

I'm going thru same prob. with 24V battery for WG167. Had same thing with older 18V that came precharged & then wouldn't recharge. 3 batteries later, they sent me to a "technical" rep who said "NO NO, it's not the batteries, it's the charger" He sent me a reconditioned charger & it worked fine. I'm not having any luck so far with the "MAX 24V". On my 2nd battery. It didn't come precharged & will only charge to 18V which is what the charger is outputting! Trying to get a "tech rep" to diagnose but no luck so far. Their tools are handy & work well if you can just get the battery/charger resolved!!!

The charger that comes with Homelite 24v mower is crappy. I've gone thru 3 of them. What's a better alternative?


I have used a DieHard portable battery charger (model 200.71222) for several years to recharge my 24-volt, 18-year old Craftsman mulcher, model 315.370270. This is after the on-board charger died. I just disconnect the link between the two 12-volt batteries and remove all other battery connections. Then connect the charger leads to the positive and negative terminals on one of the batteries before plugging in the charger. I put the settings on the charger at conventional low maintenance and 2 amps. Charge one battery and then the other (assuming you have two 12-volt sealed lead acid batteries like my mower). I use binder clips 530-t.jpgfrom an office supply store to hold the battery wires on the terminals when I'm mowing...makes it simpler to remove and reattach for charging instead of the nut-and-bolt connectors that came with the mower.

keep saying battery empty evn whn i just charged them


Some rechargeable batteries (NiCd and older NiMh) have a (bad) memory.
If they have, the charger cannot fully charge the batteries to their original
potential capacity.

Best thing to do is to buy new rechargeable batteries and a processor
controlled charger to prevent premature malfunction of your batteries.

There are new type precharged batteries which have a very low discharge
over time. Like the Sanyo Eneloop and such!

Coleman 18v drill CTP 8129 number 9408 label underside drill. Probably 30 hours total usage over 2 years. Appeared not to hold charge after 18 months - had to recharge before every use on a 1 week project last year. Next project - no recharge at all. Is this the recharger or the battery? If not too pricey would like to buy new battery or new charger, whichever is faulty. Thanks. Jerry Orr


These batteries never last very long. That model of drill is no longer made but I did find some refurbished batteries on EBAY. However, with EBAY you get what you get. Personally, I would never buy a refurbished battery and besides, they are way overpriced for a refurb. Sorry my friend but you would be better off just buying a name brand drill with Ni-cAD batteries (18V or 24V are the most common). I have a 24V DeWalt that I love and replacement batteries are cheap.
