Fixing a cordless drill battery charger

The charger for my Black & decker 18v drill is not working. One of the components a small cylindrical one soldered to the board has overheated. Does this sound like a possible repair possibility?
thanks

Usually transistors have three legs, diodes have two arms all very confusing isn't it? resistors have two arms as well but not three legs or only two legs and no arms its all about arms and legs isn't it do not attempt this repair if you live at home

Unfortunately the circuit boards come as a one piece unit and dewalt do not sell parts for it. If the component has three legs it is a diode, and you may be able to get one from an electrical wholesale shop. You can try and remove the faulty component from the board and take it somewhere and get it matched up. The components can be hard to resolder back onto the board as it is mainly pcb and has a protective layer that isn't conductive. You have nothing to lose in trying a diy repair as if it doesn't work you will need to replace the charger, and if you don't fancy your chances you will have to buy a new charger. Most modern chargers consist of two parts only, the housing and the circuit board. To replace the whole circuit board is a write off I'm afraid.

If you're handy with a soldering iron and have room to take the part out and are able to identify it from its shape and numbers, it's usually no big deal to replace. However you still won't know what caused the problem.

Unless it's a fancy high capacity charger, it's usually cheaper to replace the whole thing than to repair it.

But since you already identified the probable culprit it may be worth a shot fixing it.

Can you use 18v lithium battery in old 18v drill


Yes you can. On tools, 18 volts is 18 volts. Tools don't 'know' how the power is being created, either by Ni-Cad or Li-Ion means. Chargers are totally different. Most Li-Ion chargers can charge older Ni-Cad and some Ni-MH batteries but older Ni-Cad chargers will charge Li-Ion battery untill they overheat and sometimes start on fire because older chargers can't detect when the Li-Ion batteries are full.

Black & Decker Cordless Drill will not charge battery


Either the charging adapter is faulty or the battery is worn out.

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Black & Decker LITHIUM CHARGER 14.4v to 18v . 90539541. fits A1518L, HP1884L


could be either one. Have you tried another battery? If not I would recommend taking BOTH in for inspection. They have a scanner that can detect if the battery has a problem. If you need to find a service center close to you go to dewaltservicenet.com and they have a locator. Let me know if you need more assistance.

How do you charge it?


The battery will come off of the drill, and you should have received a charger with the drill. You inset the battery in the charger, and plug the charger in.

Lost 18V AC adaptor- can I use one made for laptop with 18V output?


I don't know if I would try this or not. there could be a difference in the amps and usually a charger is designed to shut off or go to trickle when the battery is fully charged.
