Can a bad ryobi 18 drill ruin a new 18volt ryobi battery

When I tried a new 18 volt battery in an 18 volt drill that had over heated and would not work, the new battery went dead and now will not hold a charge. The fully charged battery went dead in 1-2 seconds, and now will not hold a charge. Thnaks Tiff

The drill sounds like it is done for. The battery may have a blown internal fuse or possibly the electronics circuit board got damaged.

If the drill has a short in it, then yes, it could short the battery out. Probably in the trigger switch.

Please check the LED status of your charger. If both of the charger'sLED flashing, but it can charge a good battery. Than the battery is defective, you may replace a new Ryobi P206 Battery http://www.batteryshops.co.uk/tags_products/ryobi-p206-12-18v-2-speed-drill-driver-battery_6854.html

New drill batteries wont hold a charge also, Bought a new battery screwdriver, the charger has exploded within 1 week


Don't even bother to try repair either of them, Take them back to the dealer under warranty and make them his responsibility, If you try repair them the warranty will fall away.

Is there a recall for ryobi 18v charger or batteries


I had similar problems with my 18V Ryobi batteries. Called Ryobi customer service, gave them the serial numbers and was told there was a 2 year warranty on them, in my case the warranty was in effect until July 2012. Took the batteries to Home Depot today and they replaced my batteries with two brand new ones. I can't complain about Ryobi customer service

How to fix an old RYOBI 18 volt battery won't


take a hammer, and apply force. These batteries dont last forever... but i am serious about the hammer... you may be able to free up whats inside (if you know how a batterey works.)... also apply heat.. try to hit it from all angles than slam it down on the back and leave it sit... than try. I hope this works for you my dewalt batteries over the years have don this, and it works.. but BTW. it wont hold a charge for very long anymore.. the battery is pretty much garbage.

My 18volt Ryobi battery needs the inside batteries replaced. Is there a cheap way to do it? Can I buy just the inside batteries for my 18 Volt?


Yes you can replace the inside batteries yourself , just take the old ones out and go to Battery world or a similar shop and get replacements then all you have to do is repack them yourself and put them back into the battery case .

Battery charger model 1400666 not charging The red led is not on.this is a 12 volt charger.


I have two 18volt chargers doing the same thing. I have had them apart and it seems to be the transformer not pushing any power thru. If you can find a transformer that fits and has the right voltage that should fix the problem. From what I can make out if you leave the battery in for too long on charge it cooks the transformer. Hope this helps
