Question about Makita Tools & Hardware - Others
When I plug the my batteries into the charger I get an alternating red and green flashing light and the battery will not charge. Bother batteries were fine and showed no sign of degradation. Are they shot? Is this common?
Batteries don't always look degraded but if they've been in use for a while or have a bad cell, they will show up bad on the charger and it won't charge them. The only way to test the batteries is to try to charge them on another charger. If the batteries show defective on another charger, they are bad and you'll have to replace them. Also try to charge some batteries you know to be good on your charger to see if it's the problem. If your batteries charge on another charger, your current charger is bad and they don't have any replaceable parts in them so you'd be looking at replacing it.
