Milwaukee Tools Li-Ion battery stuck in the charger.
Milwaukee Li-Ion battery is stuck in the charger. It appears that I jammed the battery in the charger 180 degrees reversed so that the large tab on the battery is aligned where the small one should be. I just got the thing for Christmas and was too excited to notice the keying features. I'm surprised that I was even able to do this since I didn't really try that hard to put the battery in. Anyways, the battery is not fully seated in the charger and the large tab is barely visible when I look into the charger port. How do I get the battery out without damaging the battery and the charger?Thank you.Rob

Re: Milwaukee Tools Li-Ion battery stuck in the charger.
Hopefully you didn't drive it into the charger. What I would try is have someone hold the charger and you grab the battery and try wiggling it back and forth to free it up. If not you might try holding the battery and TAPPING on the charger with a piece of wood GENTLY to remove it.Hope this helps.

ITS LOADING if green light RAPID BLINKING SLOW BLINKING YOU HAVE LI-ION BATTERIES THE BEST IS TO HAVE THEM ALWAYS ON THE LOADER IF IN USE ; THERE IS NO MEMORY EFFECT OR TRAINING NECESSARY THAT WAS THE NICKEL CADMIUM PERIOD OF THE HEAVY BATTERIES , when a li-ion battery is too long without charging and using on time when the battery is below the dc level it should have it is possible that the loader will not accept the battery anymore, no problem take 2 short wires of a powercable and from a full loaded battery take the + connector and connect to the + with the problem battery and also the - to the - and wait for a moment 4 or 5 minutes that should be enough so the deep unload protection level is high enough loaded to accept the battery again on the loader MAKITA HITACHI MILWAUKEE DEWALT and much more brands its the most safe solution to get that dead battery working again. because not always is there a real problem but when too long inactivity 1 or 2 years on a li ion battery it is not dead or have only used one battery too long without changing it
May be It can mean your LI ION battery is out of range by the deep discharged protection. !!! your charger is not defect and your battery also not in 80% of this cases you are certainly not the only one with this problem . i think your battery was or is new or for a long time not used have i right ? or it was long lay down in the stockroom by the store before it was selling as i know from experience it by the brand Hitachi its fast much allways going that way. in priority the little 10 volt batteries made of li-ion can have on stock for 5 years its out of range , but i send it back and for service they come back full loaded again and full of capacity. its fully under service and they know that problem, there are no costs as all people with Li Ion tools to sell should know this or asked by purchase by some companies to load it full before buying a new tool with li-ion batteries because it prevents a disappointment and a drive to the shop again.
Note to control it that way 80 % in case of this the charger is not defect ask someone or your dealer or friends to test that charger with a new or other functional or regular used Dewalt fitting li ion battery , then you know for shure that its realy not defect, but your battery can be boosted with a special cadex charger if its was little used but i have made in experienced an discovery (but only on Dewalt li ion batteries..because there are only 3 poles on Dewalt accu s to find its missing that special grooved protection circuits with multiple contacts inside on the li ion batteries as to find by all other regulary brands too find) used a simply auto charger 12 volts 4 amp placed + and - corresponding the pins + and - and for 20 seconds because its li-ion (always by unknown experiments wear safety glasses) under the load and repeat that 3 times on a 14,4 volt li ion battery and after i switched that battery fast after that short boost again in the original loader and if the lamp on the charger was again been continues red thats mean it was reborn new and accept its loading again in the official dewalt loader and it was be accepted from that time again without repeating the same problem after fully loading it again. its made me happy but only by Dewalt was this experiment functional simply + on + and - on -
Beware do not this on other brands like Panasonic Makita Hitachi or other Brands milwaukee to do this li ion action because its has no cure wasting not your time and do not experiment full on the separate cells it can made great explosions without electronic technical impossible because of complex protections that are marketing technical made ONLY by special CADEX chargers are used for it to boost it so it will be again fully functional again .
Li ION is not comparable with Nickel Cadmium or nickel metal hydride, the first must be trained for capacity and the second not but do not load nickel metal hydride batteries in the freezing cold most outside or in cellars the lasting life of that batteries is very short after that . the capaciti will loose and is not coming back and is very bad to boost., Nickel Cadmium is heavy and great instead of Nickel MH . and material is expensiver the only good improvement of NI MH is the weight and the building material, and no capacity memory if its used under normal temperatures. above 0 degrees .
Li-ION hold them as much on the charger change both fast after use will long last the life of the battery.
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.
Was your Sony camera battery power off before you store it for a long time?If so, it should have make a great damage of your Li-ion rechargeable battery.The best way to store your Li-ion camera batteries is to keep the Acer batteries at cool and dry places at optimal temperature of about 20 degrees with only about 40% power remained.
The same thing happened to me. There is normally a 2 year warranty on the batteries from Milwaukee. You can't return them to the Home Depot, you have to send them back via a local repair center.
You won't be able to exchange the batteries at the repair center. The repair center sends them back to Milwaukee and Milwaukee will send replacement batteries.
You will probably be able to find the closest repair center on line.
Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries
Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh
batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.
NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will
only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls
below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only
result in about 30-40 pictures at most.
This camera requires a
constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this
!!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New
alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short
period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they
simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power
But there is a really great solution to the
problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits
right into this camera. You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per
charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very
long period of time and will allow the camera to function the way
Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find
rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at
a very reasonable cost.
You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.
I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.
For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
