SOURCE: Makita 18v Lithium-Ion BL1830 Battery Won't Charge

If you have been a bad boy and managed to short the battery by using it for non-proscribed purposes, the fusible link will blow (kind of like a fuse) To fix it, open up the battery (use a Torx 10 security bit, or a small flathead in a pinch) On the battery connection nearest the spring-loaded white catch there is a small bridge of metal with a hole in the center. If this is melted you can solder it back together by sanding the two pieces and putting a glob of solder on them. This will void your warranty (duh!) and remove the battery's fuse protection, but it WILL work again. If the link is intact and nothing else is obviously wrong, you almost certainly have a bad cell. I recommend pulling out the bad cell ( it will be the one that does not read between 2.5 - 4 vdc) and replacing it with one from another dud battery- this requires some fudging and re-soldering. Or do what I did, pull the cell, toss the electronics and the short pink wire, add a cigarette lighter socket and voila! you have a portable power supply giving around 14 volts. Charge it up by wiring two cigarette lighter male ends together (check polarity , + to + and - to -) and plug it into your car, but only while it is running or you will be charging your car battery with it! Hope that helps.

SOURCE: MAKITA LI-ION 18V BATTERIES WILL NOT CHARGE

I have had 3 battiers of the new 18v LXT go out on me. And then I had one of my drills burn up that was one of the new 18v LXT. I am stuck with the grinder, skill saw, 2 impact drivers, sawzal, flash light, and a drill. I only have one battery left and 2 chargers. That is funny. I will never buy any more Makita tools in my life.

Fitting new gearbox to 8444d


that is a pain. when you take them out they have to go back in that specific way that specific place. if you don't get back just right the case won't fit back together. if you take it slow and only remove what you need to remove you may not have any trouble. you will have to remove all the case screws to get to the gearbox. everything is a tight fit.

Makita dc1804f charger will not charge new i-mh 1834 18v battery


I think your tryiong to charge NIMH batteries oon a charger designed for Lithium Ion batteries. With all the new style batteries such as NICAD, NIMH and LI-ION, charging becomes difficult. Most chargers pre NIMH and LI-ion, were designed for NICAD's. The best advise, match your batteries with the correct charger
