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.

Can we use the new 18 volt litheum batttery on the old 18 volt drill


Are you asking if it will fit, or if it will work, or it it is safe?
I can't tell you if it will fit, or even if it will work, but I can tell you this--- If it fits, then go ahead and try. It won't hurt anything, but they may have put the contacts in different places, so it might not work. But do not try to charge a lithium battery on an old charger.

My new drill suddenly stopped working even though the battery has been charged OK.


Is it Nano li-ion? have you got another spare battery to double- check?
I experienced the same problem with 18V Dewalt nano li-ion battery. Was fully charged, came to work- Dead!!! I was lucky I had spare one, so then i was ok, but anyways had to buy a new one. Check on these things:
1. Battery is faulty. If u have any chances to ask someone who has the same gun (voltage is very important!!! has to be the same!!!- 12V battery to 12V gun, 14.4 to 14.4, 18 to 18 etc). Put your battery into that other gun. If You find the same problem that means your battery is dead.
2.Gun with battery contacts. If you 100% sure, that batterIES (check 2 batteries, or more) are OK, check bottom contacts where u put battery in, use WD40, or similar to clean them.
3. Least common Dewalt thing (Most common in Panasonic drills) is trigger contacts.
Basically i do not know what model is your dewalt, i was only talking in general, but there are no miracles- stopped working suddenly, and what u describe new, for instance my new drill dw727kd is less than 1 year old, i was too stuppid to open that battery myself to void warranty :(
AAAAHHH!!!!!! One more thing - If you have not tried to open these screws- check your nearest Dewalt authorised repair center- new NANO batteries have 2year warranty!

Green light stays on when charging the red light does not come on


The battery is dead, and the charger will not not charge it. You need to purchase a new battery.

Can dead battery dewalt be revived


Usually not. If the cells are dead and wont hold a charge there is really not much you can do except replace it or get the battery repacked with new cells.

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.

18 volt ryobi batteries wont hold charge


NiCads stop taking a charge because microscopic crystals build between the individual battery cells (inside the pack) and the leads between them. here is what i have done for my craftsmen NiCad 18 volt batteries to get them to once again hold a charge:

you'll need ~2 to 3 times the voltage that you are using. for instance, if you've got a 14v drill battery that has stopped working, then you'll need 28-42 volts, 18v will need 36-54 volts. i have found 3 car (or motorcycle or lawn tractor) batteries work fine. so i have 2 motorcycle batteries and 1 tractor battery.

i hook these car/motorcycle/tractor batteries up in series. positive from one batt to the negative of the next and so on until i have one positive lead not connected and one negative lead not connected.

something like this: --(batt)+_--(batt)+_--(batt)+

then with safety glasses on i touch the positive lead from the motorcycle battery to the positive tab of the NiCad drill battery with one hand and the negative lead of the tractor battery to the negative tab of the NiCad drill battery (at the same time) and count to 3. i remove and wait a few seconds (5-7) and repeat 2 more times.

once the last ZAP is done, place the NiCad drill battery into the charger and see if the charge light illuminates. if it does, then you have just saved a battery from the land fill and some $$ from your pocket. if it doesn't, then try to repeat it once more, but no more after that.

some word of caution. do not let the the + & - leads of the car/motorcycle/tractor batteries touch each other. that's 36 volts you've got there and will spark/explode.

also, if during the zapping of the dead NiCad battery you hear a "pop", one NiCad cell inside the battery pack has given up the ghost and now the battery is trash for sure. take it to radio shack for recycling. do NOT attempt to zap it again.

use at least 14-16 guage wire (or larger which is a smaller number) to connect the batteries in series and also to zap the NiCad drill batteries.

one final note: do NOT use this method on Lithium Ion batteries. it will not work and may cause injury!!!

good luck.

You should try to charge the battery again. Or you can try to fix it or then its time to get a new battery.
