SOURCE: porter cable 18 v lithium

How old is the battery and do you store it in the cold. Cold is no good for the batterys but if its flashing that its trying to change and the problem may be with the charger if there not more then 3or 4 years old and were not left in cold conditions and the lithium battery haven't been out for much longer then that. Ihave the same gun and for a year its worked vary well with the 7 inch saw and i use them a lot.

Do not try to repait the battery. There is a possibility you could fix it but don't try it. Acid is not friendly on humans body.
go out and buy new batteries for it. I would suggest you buy the type of battery it came with.
One more thing; Make sure you remove the battery and store it in a normal temperature area anytime it is not in use.

Please rate if this helped you.

SOURCE: I bought the porter cable

This is common on all brands. If the battery is dropped or gets to much moisture in it , it will ruin it. You don't know how many times it was dropped or slammed around during shipment or on the store shelves.

Is there 2 type of battery chargers for ryobi one+ and lithium 18v one +


I just went through this with Porter Cable 18V but I can't say it is the same for Ryobi. On the PC, all 18V batteries are interchangable on the tools, but the charging needs are different. A dedicated NiCad charger can't shouldn't be used for liOn but the later chargers will work for either battery.
Ryobi offers an 18V upgrade:

Just bought a Ruobi drill with 18V Lithium Batteries. Been chatging for over an hour. Still not charged. Just the bottom Green light stays on. Is this normal? How long does it take?


The Ryobi charger will flash green as it charges and then remain steady or slowly flashing green when fully charged. Flashing red means testing and if it remains steady or slowly flashing red it is defective.

This is not right. They should last much longer then that. I have one of the more expensive 18V lithium batteries (the one with the button on it that tells you if it needs charging or not) and I can use mine almost all day before it needs to be recharged. I do construction work and I use my Ryobi products almost all day. Either both batteries are bad (I don't believe that is the case) or the charger is not charging them all the way to a full charge. With this charger, you do need to make sure that you remove the batteries as soon as the green light comes on. It is not good on these batteries to stay charging after they are fully charged. You also should not leave the charger plugged in without any batteries charging.Please tell me more about the charger. When you plug in the charger, does the red light come on? When you plug in a battery, does the red light stay bright and the green light blink? Does the red light go off and the green light stay on bright when you remove it from the charger?
If the charger is not working correctly, then return it for a new one.

The battery will power your equipment for 30 to 45 minutes, that is normal. What you're thinking of is the lifespan of a lithium battery. It with your battery will last 10 times longer than a regular NiCad battery. So you will be able to charge the battery and use it Hundreds of times before the Battery Life is depleted. Sounds like it's working as designed

18v nicad charger blinks short on battery on both batteries


Probably both batteries are dead. Unusual for both to go at the same time but that sounds like the problem.

Ryobi lithium batteries won't take charge


For others with the same problem (flashing red light won't go off)...make sure you FIRMLY PUSH the battery down onto the charger and engage the latches. Simply resting the battery on the charger will not work.
