Milwaukee 28V Lithiom-Ion Battery loses power in storage

If I leave it for several weeks it goes dead. It recharges fine and seem to provide plenty of power while in use. I bought it used. Is it a problem that can be fixed? How can I measure its performance against a new battery standard?

It is not recommended to leave the battery installed in the drill while not in use. The system of the drill will eventually pull the battery down, especially if the battery has had a lot of use. When the battery begins to weaken it will not hold its charge as long.

If you haven't, try charging the battery, 24 hours max and then keep it detached from the drill for several weeks. Then try it aand see how much power you have left. If it is low or depleted, battery is weak.

My dyson DC 59 Motorhead works fine for a period of time then just quits. The run time seems unusually short and does not slowly lose power but stops abruptly. What is the problem?


Modern lithium Ion rechargeable batteries don't slow down as they discharge, they run full appliance and then just boom they are dead. You need a new battery

I have the jv100 and the on off button is not working


Theres no firmware download for the jv100 on the Fuji website. Have you tried recharging the battery? Leaving a rechargeable battery for 3 weeks unused is plenty of time for it to discharge. Maybe the playback button only turns on the previews which would require less power than the full camera start up. You have nothing to lose by trying a recharge..............

I charge my batteries but when I use them they go dead very fast


Your batteries no longer hold charge as deeply as they once were capable. Typical symptom of rechargeable batteries. You need to replace them.

My 28v milwaukee batteries do not last any time and they are only a couple of years old


Unfortunately even rechargable batteries have a limited lifespan. Two years is good, if you get three years out of one you're doing very well. Lifespan is determined by how much you use then, how many recharges you put on them and how far down you drain them between charges. The more power you take out of a battery before charging it back up the better. Also, there are no repairable parts inside a battery and no way to recondition them once they're worn out. Sorry, not what you want to hear, but the only fix is to buy a new battery.

Losing charge quickly on my 28v batteries


How old are they? You can expect one year out of these batteries, and that is about it. I have boxes full of dead batteries, hoping they will be worth something someday as rare chemicals. No, just saving up for a trip to the recycling bin. But every year I buy a new set, mark the with a sharpie, that is how I know they only last a year, because I have been doing it for 10 years. Hope this helps.

Why my 28v doesn't fully charge. when charging indicator light is red. there is 4 charge indicator. when it reach 2 green light comes on showing fully charged. you would use it for about 20 minutes and...


One or more cells of the battery have gone bad. The technique of measuring the state of charge of the battery is VERY limited.

I would recommend letting the battery cool after charging... THEN in a day, charge it again without using it. Do this for several days and see if the battery improves. If not, time for new battery.

DO NOT discharge these batteries beyond the point where the tool starts to slow down. You will reverse charge the weakest cell from the ones still deliveing power and the reverse charge will permanently damage the weakest cell.

Clock loses time


All memory on the n35 is powered by the n35 - if it goes completely dead, I usually leave it for a few weeks for the battery to completely flatten then check hard reset switch is off and recharge.
