Porter-Cable battery charger model #8605

Is there not a replacement for the Porter Cable battery charger model#8605? My drill still works perfectly but the red and green lights on the front of the charger don't come on anymore so I can't tell if it's charging or not. What a waste if I can't use my drill anymore.

    Yes and no. Yes because it showed me where to look and no because they no longer have this model of charger. It's a shame that you have to trash a perfectly good drill and battery because they no longer make this charger available.Thanks for the information anyway.

Go to www.dewaltservicenet.com and enter the model number of your drill. It will get you to the parts breakdown and will tell you if there is a charger available from the factory. Or call 1-800-433-9258 1-800-4DEWALT. stanley black and decker owns all of them so yes that's the right place!

SOURCE: 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.

Fuse for Porter Cable PCMVC T2


It is not q cost effective repair. I understand your wanting to repair it. I have disposed of several 18V tools because of the cost of replacement batteries. I found it a better solution to watch for sale and buy a new tool with 2 batteries and charger. Good Luck.

PORTER CABLE BATTERY CHARGER MODEL8624 REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR?


Some chargers have a thermal cutout on the transformer.
They can often be accessed by peeling back the insulation on the secondary side ( thinner winding ), and either replacing the trip or for a temp measure, short it out.

My batteries are dead, can I connect the step down wall charger directly to the contacts for the battery inside the handle and use it like that?


This can be so frustrating. The power available from the charger is not enough to operate the drill motor at load. After going through several NiCad drills, chargers and batteries I ended up getting a Lithium battery drill that is so far about two years old staying healthy a lot longer.

I have rigged a 12 vdc version of a NICad drill to a lighter plug and used it in the car. Alligator clips ended up working better but the power loss in the wires defeated the real benefit.

Porter Cable makes a drill PCCK600LB (The part numbers are tricky the one listed is the one to buy) I had had a opportunity to work with the less powerful model PCC601 and was impressed. This model is the more powerful version and I'm super happy with it. It comes with two batteries that are high output, Orphan drills no case or batteries are available e-bay for pocket change. I purchased the low end version( PCC601) to go with this model using the second battery from the first drill. One for the drill and this one for the driver.

Porter cale drill and two batteries got wet they wont hold charge bought two new batteries they do same thing even tried them in the sawsall still does not hold charge for maore than a couple minutes...


If the charger got wet, or you tried to charge batteries that got wet... yes. Replace the charger, and throw away or recycle the water damaged batteries. I know thats not what you wanted to hear, but look at the bright side! The drill is most likley fine!

I bought the porter cable lithium 18v hand drill around November 2010. I have used the drill 3 times. One of the batteries will charge and one of the batteries will not. When I attach it to the charger...


This is common on all brands. If the battery is dropped or gets to much moisture in it , it will ruin it. You don't know how many times it was dropped or slammed around during shipment or on the store shelves.

18v nicad charger blinks short on battery on both batteries


Probably both batteries are dead. Unusual for both to go at the same time but that sounds like the problem.
