Question about Porter Cable 19.2V Drill Kit
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.
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!

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.
