Question about Drills

1 Answer

Battery charger won't work.

My charger will charge for 3 minutes then change to "replace pack." However, if I put the battery in an identical charger it will charge all day. I have two batteries and three chargers. Only one thinks my battery is bad. Is there a fix for this?

The simplest is to throw the bad charger in the trash assuming the results are the same with both batteries otherwise the battery is probably failing.

SOURCE: Batteries not charging

sounds like my charger, not making good contact

wiggle the battery around while pushing down and you can probably get it to make contact

sounds like you just need a new charger

18v 12 cordless trimmer/edger. Why won't it start?


the trimmers switch may be faulty.

CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
Battery packs for this tool are shipped in a low charge condition
to prevent possible problems. Therefore, you should
charge them until the green LED on the front of the charger
comes on.
NOTE: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time they
are charged. Allow several cycles (operation followed by
recharging) for them to become fully charged.
CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
See Figure 3.
If battery pack is within normal temperature range, the red
LED on charger will come on.
NOTE: If the charger does not charge the battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack and
charger to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for
electrical check.
n Charge the battery pack only with the charger provided.
n Make sure the power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
n Connect the charger to the power supply.
n Place the battery pack in the charger aligning raised rib
on the battery pack with the groove in the charger.
n Press down on the battery pack to be sure contacts on
the battery pack engage properly with contacts in the
charger.
n Normally the red LED on charger will come on. This
indicates the charger is in fast charging mode.
n Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour
then the green LED will come on. Green LED on
indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is
in maintenance charge mode.
NOTE: The green LED will remain on until the
battery pack is removed from the charger or charger is
disconnected from the power supply.
n If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.
n The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
n Do not place the charger and battery pack in an area of
extreme heat or cold. They will work best at normal room
temperature.
NOTE: The charger and battery pack should be placed
in a location where the temperature is more than 50°F
but less than 100°F.
n When batteries become fully charged, unplug the
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.

My firestorm 24 volt double charger the lite is on but it won't charge the battery


It is charging the battery but the battery is not holding the charge probably from a faulty batter in the pack.so the charge is going in and out at the same time. Take the pack to a battery shop that specialises in replacement batteries to have it checked out . Take the charger also for tests.

My battery won't charge even if I replaced it with new battery.


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

Revive drill driver battery packs


Rechargeable batteries do have a lifespan, they won't recharge forever. If you have fully discharged the batteries then fully recharged them and they still don't have full power or they only last a couple minutes then they are done. If they won't charge or the charger shows them as defective, the only fix is to replace them.

Go-go battery won't charge


PLEASE NOTE: The Low Voltage Protection feature on this battery charger will not allow the charger to activate unless it is connected to a battery pack that has a minimum voltage of 16 volts. Battery packs with voltages below that level of charge cannot be recovered or recharged. This is a safety feature to prevent overheating in the event of a faulty battery. This battery charger will not output any voltage to the XLR connector until connected to a battery pack meeting this minimum voltage requirement.

We have bought a battery charger HB 1206S DC6V - 12V 6AMP, but it does not state what is the state of charge do the lightes go out when it has reached changed state or light up please help


Product Detail Model No.: HB-1206S
The item is used for charging 6V-12V lead-acid batteries
Max Charging Current: 6A
AC Power Input: 64W
Output: 6/12V DC 3. 52A
Batteries Capacities: 15AHR-80AHR
Unit Packing: Colorful box
Dimension: 18cm x 10cm x 20cm
G. W. / N. W.: 1. 85KG/1. 75KG
Certifications: GS, CE, BS, ROHS, SAA

Main functions:
(1) The HB-1206S battery charger has the features of convenient operations, reliable safety and high performance.
(2) During charging, if turn up overload, the battery charger will keep itself at normal current and normal voltage with its self-automatic protecting function.
(3) If being short circuit, the battery charger will switch off itself, and turn normal after one or two minutes.
(4) The output current of the battery charger is very stationary, so it can protect the battery charger very well. It only costs 3 or 4 hours to fully charge the batteries.
(5) Indication of charging: the battery charger has 6 pilot lamps. The more pilot lamps shining, the less electric quantity is. The charging process finishes when all the pilot lamps go out.
(6) The battery charger can be switched between 6V and 12V, so it can charge for 6V and 12V accumulators. You can select 6V or 12V according to your own needs.
(7)The operations are very convenient: Put the red clip to the positive pole of the accumulator which indicated "+", and put the black clip to the negative pole of the accumulator which indicated "-", then plug in power source, the accumulator will be charged.

Ryobi charger model # 140295003 has a red and yellow light. When charging red light is on what does the yellow light mean? Also how long should the battery be left in the charger?


Completely wrong. Quoting from the user's manual:

"The charge indicator light (LED), located on the charg- ing stand, will light up red and glow when the char- ger is properly connected to power supply. This light indicates the charger is operating properly. It will remain on until battery pack is removed from charging stand or charger is disconnected from power supply.

After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

If both red and orange LED indicators glow, the battery pack is deeply or completely discharged, and 6 hours or longer of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

Note: If charger does not charge battery pack or orange LED continues to glow after more than 30 minutes of charging, return battery pack and charging assembly to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for electrical check."

So to summarize: red = charging. orange (yellow) = fully discharged battery. orange after 30 minutes - bad battery or bad charger.

The battery won't hold a charge, is there a fix or is it replaceable?


Hi there,

Well first of all you may check that the charger (adapter) is working or not, you may use a volt meter to check it out or use another charger to make sure....... further you may follow the step below -
1. Remove the battery pack from Vacuum.
2. Hold down the power button for five seconds.
3. Reinstall the battery to reset the system.
4. Plug the Charger directly into vacuum.
5. Charge the battery untill the power light is solid green again and keep the vacuum on the charger for an additional 72 hours (3 days). Important: Do NOT interrupt this charging cycle.
If further you have the same problem it means it's time to change the old battery with new one.

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Dewalt battery charger won't charge


As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.
