Battery won't charge
Posted by Anonymous on
Please check the LED status of your charger. If both of the charger'sLED flashing, but it can charge a good battery. Than the battery is defective, you may replace a new Ryobi P206 Battery http://www.batteryshops.co.uk/tags_products/ryobi-p206-12-18v-2-speed-drill-driver-battery_6854.html

Had the same problem with some makita batteries, Was going to throw them away so decided to take apart and see what was happening. The are made up of 1.5 volt cells soldered together, found that many had .9 volts or less and others had 1.5 or more. This means that some of the cells had gone bad (probably due to lack of chemical reaction). Found that if I collected all of the 1.5 volt together could charge just fine. Problem is it is very hard to get them all soldered back together and even harder to enclose them. If a mfg. could come up with some way to change cells individually they could make a lot of money and save us a lot. So the answer to your question is buy you at least one more battery and recycle your old one.

The fuse in mine said 4 amp. I have also used. You can use a 4 amp or lower to replace the original one that blew.

Absolutely not. The risk of damage to the battery is only a minor concern compared to the fire hazard you would be creating.

It sounds like your battery is bad. If yellow and green are on for more than 15 minutes it probably a defective battery pack. See page 8 in the manual.

Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.
