Battery not charging

My batteries are the 14.4V. Model 54-2750-4, on a 1 hour charger. When I insert a dead battery to be charged, I get an amber light as well as a green "charged" light. After an hour on the charger, I get nothing. Is there anything I can do? I can't find these batteries new anymore, and I would still like to use the drill. Can I repair the batteries, or is there a problem with the charger? Any help would be appreciated.

    It does happen with both batteries. If I leave a battery on the charger for a long time (5 hours or so) I get a very slight charge (enought to barely power the light bulb in the drill, but not to actually turn the chuck).

The battery is 14.4 volts so the charger should be 14.4 volts.

SOURCE: 18v Litheon drill charger won't charge battery

It could be the battery or the charger. Best thing to do is find a Bosch service center and have them test them. The litheon stuff is fairly new, there is a good chance it will be on warranty.

SOURCE: My new Black Max 24v drill charger will not charge the battery

You indicate that the drill is new. I'd suggest you return it for a replacement. Seems to be a defective or wrong charger. If you have problems and If you paid by credit card call the card company and have them stop payment on that charge.

Charging/Charged Indicators


I don't know what model of radio, but here is what I would try: pull the batteries and charge them on the charger by themselves if your charger allows this. The lights, well, some manufacturers just miss the boat. Especially on low end or "beginner" radios. I have one brand I can insert with NO BATTERY and the light comes on. Talk about useless. Charge times vary by size of battery and charger output, minimum is 3 hours, 12 hours much more likely but I see a lot at 5-7 hours. Hope this helps, model and brand helps always.

Battery charge light flashing amber


Ok, lets start slowly, do you have both a new battery and a new battery charger? If both attempt to use your old battery with the new charger. Also could be a bad charger or a shorted out battery...
Good Luck

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My 14v ryobi charger is givig two lights when I am charging my battries. whats wrong ?


red is charging, green is done, amber is either hot or bad battery ive seen that with both symptoms when on with the green. dont run your battery down to the limit and always keep the battery charged this will prolong the life of the battery, dont store dead batteries in other words.

Schumacker battery charger problem?


You are charging. The meter corresponds to the level of charge in the battery. Try setting to 10 A for 4 hours, battery should be half-way up. To determine if battery id dead.. leave battery off charger once it is fully charged...test with a voltmeter after 10 min.....battery should still be above 12v...after1 hour it should still be above 12v...if not battery is spent.

GP 360 Radio Charger


On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.
