Question about Dewalt Drills
Drill runs fine, but when left to sit it causes Battary to smoke & unable to hold Charge.
Do you have more than one battery and if so do they both do this? It sounds like the batery has shorted out or possibly the switch is malfunctioning and creating the short either way I would not try and recharge a battery that has these symptoms. I actually had a NiCad battery catch on fire when I charged it not knowing the history of battery. There are repair centers that usually won't charge you to check batterys/drill or maybe a minimal fee but it is cheaper than replacing batterys constantly. Good luck. Dave
