I bought this titanium mb 300 just recently, almost 3 weeks now. I recharged fully twice i guess during this period. And this time when the battery was almost getting over i kept it for charging but there is no CHARGE light and it doesnt charge. Any idea whts the problem?
I had the same problem, I suggest that you go to your local WAL-MART and return it. Just tell them you want to exchange with a different one and forgot the receipt. This works because I did it with my Remington MB 300 Beard Trimmer.

most companies recommend 24 hours charge time unless otherwise state in the manuals for the camera or rechargeable batteries. while with some cameras or rechargeable batteries you may be able to use right out of the box! also if are using third party rechargeable batteries then you should follow the instructions of the battery maker.
Most of our time, the capacity of our notebook battery is not enough
for our work and life. If you don’t have money for Apple Macbook , Dell
and HP that have acclaimed battery life of 8 hours, this few tips will
help to enlarge your notebook battery life a little longer:
1. Use only the power cord that came with your notebook or other authorized replacement.
2. When you don’t use it, follow the correct maintenance for your notebook.
3. Don't leave it in direct sunlight, areas where it will be exposed to extreme temperatures such as car trunks.
4. If your notebook has power management features, use it, so the
system will run at lower processor speeds when enabling power
management features and it will go into "sleep" mode faster when
5. Buy notebooks with internal Li-Ion batteries. Non Li-Ion batteries must be fully discharged and recharged every 2-3 weeks.
6. If you don't use your notebook for a period of time, you must fully
discharge then recharge it, so the battery will last longer.
After the initial charge, under normal usage, your power pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the power pack is run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged.
The red light is just a power indicator. The light will not go out, change color, or blink when the charging has been completed.
To prolong power pack life, avoid leaving the power pack on charge for extended periods of time (over 30 days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can significantly reduce overall power pack life.
The power pack will reach optimum performance after being cycled 5 times during normal usage.
There is no need to run the batteries down completely before recharging. Normal usage is the best method of discharging and recharging the batteriesHope this was of some help to you.
These batteries have big problems that Hitachi doesn't address very well. Unlike NiCad batteries, Lith-Ion ones must be periodically used and recharged to retain their battery functions, i.e. if they have been sitting on the shelf at a store for an extended period of time, chances are they will be dead when bought and will not accept a charge. If they go dead i.e. no little red light on the charger when you plug the battery unit in...it's basically junk.
If you can return them or exercise the warranty do so. If / when you get new ones DO NOT completely discharge them like you would NiCads. Lith-Ion batteries do not have the "battery memory" issues that NiCads have which means you don't lose running time if you don't fully discharge the battery unit prior to recharge. Completely discharging before recharge will ultimately kill them. Use the 1815X till almost dead and then charge it. It is also recommended Lith-Ion batteries not be stored fully charged i.e. charge the 1815X fully, drive a couple bolts or screws, remove the battery unit and then put it away. Do not leave battery unit plugged into the tool when you put the tool away. This will discharge and kill the battery unit.
There are non-Hitachi substitute batteries now on the market. I'm guessing the same precautions apply but I don't own one of the replacements so I don't truly know.
The actual batteries in the Hitachi BSL 1815X are Sanyo UR18650SAX lithium ion batteries. Lithium Ion cells aren't all that easy to get commercially because of handling & safety requirements. Not certain if you can take apart the 1815X and swap out the bad Sanyo cells.
If you are buying a multitester also consider buying a small motorcycle battery charger. They make ones that have a remote charging cable that you put on the battery one time and then you have an easy way to connect the small charger up when the bike it sitting for long periods. This will keep the battery fully charged and ready to go when you are.
Some batteries are sold only partially charged and you need to bench charge them fully before running them on the bike. Depending on your bikes energy demands the battery may never fully charge up during regular use.
If you put the multitester on DC voltage check the battery to see what its resting charge state is.
If the battery is reading less than 10.6 volts its probably down too low the recharge itself using the bikes alternator. Charge it until its resting voltage is 12.0 volts. Then your bikes alternator can make enough juice at 14-15 volts to recharge the battery while its running.
Good luck and be careful.
