Question about Ace Hardware Black & Decker& Battery Charger

1 Answer

I am trying to charge a dead battery on my car, and I am using this battery charger for the first time. Black and Decker model number VEC1086BBD. I got a light that says "Fault". What does that mean? I ought to be able to switch the amp usage for charging but I cant do anything. Maybe I should let it charge for a while and see what it does?

O.k. the fault light means that the battery is either 1. not connected right or 2. the battery is not chargeable.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Chargers will out last batteries by a long time.You will need to get a new battery. Black & Decker is a cheap household brand and does not hold up for long periods of time. I have better brands and buy several new batteries every year.

The charger for my Black and Decker PS130 power pack batteries just quit on me. Apparently, other folks have had the same problem so I don't want to replace it. I subsequently bought a Dewalt DW9118 but...

For the price a Dewalt costs, you can buy a few reconditioned cheap cordless drills and keep them all charged up. You will always have a standby. You can also check the pawn shops. With times like they are many people are getting rid of good stuff. You can find a great deat but always use a trustworthy pawn shop and get a receipt with the serial number on it. Theives like pawn shops, too.
Happy Hunting!

My porter cable 19.2v model 8605 battery charger

Porter Cable has not offered a replacement for their poorly designed 19.2V chargers. I had the same problem and happen to like my drill and circular saw. I found a universal charger called a model number CHUN-2420. Google it--I got mine for $27 plus shipping. All you need to do to make this work is splice 3 wires.

My charger is a PC model 8624, so the instructions might vary slightly between the chargers. Remove the six screws on the bottom of your PC charger. Remove the bottom section. Remove the screw(s) that attach the circuit card to the plastic housing. Disconnect the 3 pin white charging connector from the circuit card, and cutoff the connector. Discard the circuit card and power cord. Cut the 3 conductor (red/yellow/black) cable coming out of the Chun-2420 approximately 2' from the charger. Splice these three wires to the three wires in the charger housing that connect to your battery. In my situation, Red/Red, Yellow/Yellow, White/Black. To verify, red=positive, black/white=negative, yellow=temperature sensor. Wrap the red/yellow/black cable with electrical tape where it exits the PC charger through the power cord hole. Re-attach the bottom.
