Those batterys need to be on the charger if they are not in the tool. I would try to get the store to exchange the entire set for a new one. If that fails ebay sells batterys pretty cheap.

How can I reset chip on my Makita lithium ion 18v battery


Based on experience I can tell you that it is is generally the temperature/cutoff/individual cell monitoring sensor in charger that dont allow the batteries to take a charge. Once the same condition is detected 3 times by the same charger it considers the batteries to be bad and refuses to accept it. I have 2 batteries that wont charge on one charger but works perfectly fine when i charge it on my other Makita charger so basically there is no problem with my batteries.
I would suggest first you check the voltage of your drained battery by a test multimeter. For 18volt battery if it is close to 18volts 1-2 volts less is just fine! Then there is no issue with your battery. Makita chargers are very expensive hitech which is useless in my opinion the lipo chargers (used in rc hobby) example skyrc are better quality cheaper and does a better job and you can easily charge your makita battery with it as well but this is only recommended if you decide not to go with Makita charger any more. Some basic information about multi chargers for Li-ion battery to follow the safety is make sure you use the right connectors with correct polarity. For 18v volts max voltage should not exceed more than 20.50 and the allowable charge current is 2.7amps also ensuring that batteries dont heatup.

My makita batteries nolonger charge


Lithium batteries do have a life span determined by how many times the battery is discharged and recharged and how hard it is worked on the tool. Batteries get hot while charging and discharging and heat is what ages batteries. Lithium batteries, depending on usage, will last from one to three years. I've seen some last five years but that's rare. They also have numerous cells and a circuit board that can go bad and kill the battery. Chargers are designed to check the battery's condition and won't charge a battery if it detects something wrong. If your battery is under one year old, it's covered by the warranty. If it's over, you'll have to buy a new battery.

Either bad batteries or a bad charger. You can use a multimeter to test for DC voltage output in the charger.

Hi both red and green lights are flashing and it wont charge battery bl1830 lith ion


If both lights are flashing it means the battery is defective so it won't charge it. By defective it could mean the battery is just worn out or there may be a short in the battery. If the battery is under warranty you can get it replaced at a Makita Service Center, if not you have to buy a new battery.

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.
