    I have your suggestion at least 4 times. I bought the drill in Sept/08. It was only used to put up my curtain rods and hooks. I followed the instructions in the manual. And I used to have a Dewalt 12v drill and new when the problem arised after the 2nd use I knew to run the battery down and then fully recharge. I do thank you for your tip though.

Run the battery all the way down until it's dead. Then fully recharge. Do this at least twice.

Black & Decker Cordless Drill will not charge battery


Either the charging adapter is faulty or the battery is worn out.

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My charger displayed cold/hot pack delay during charging


This is indicating the battery is too hot to charge, usually after coming off the tool right after some hard work. During the charging process the battey heats up so if you charge a hot battery, thereby making it hotter, you shorten the lifespan of the battery considerably. If you are getting a hot/cold pack delay indication on the charger, it should automatically start charging once the battery has cooled down sufficently.

Battery started smoking during charging. Smoke was puffing out from time time. Can these battery explode?


If you keep trying to charge it, it might do so. If this pack is still under warranty, get it replaced. If it is on your dollar, you can get the pack rebuilt with new cells for roughly $40 to $50 at: www.primecell.com
I had a Skill drill pack rebuilt with Lithium ion cells that have half again the original charge longevity. Hope this helps!

Lost 18V AC adaptor- can I use one made for laptop with 18V output?


I don't know if I would try this or not. there could be a difference in the amps and usually a charger is designed to shut off or go to trickle when the battery is fully charged.
