Question about Drills
I have a charger that gives 4 volts to the 9.6 volts battery, when I push the red button, it increase only to 6 volts, but shutt off wihtin 15 seconds. and the battery got only 4 volts charge.I push the yellow button and get only 4 volts from the charger. Is this normal, or the voltage must be 9 volts ?
I would, first, suspect the battery. The fix is easy: get a new battery. If it takes the initial charge, you have your answer, and shuld buy another battery. If not, replace the charger.
Since the odds are the battery is at fault, you're back in business. If not the battery, a new charger gets it done. Main thing, you needed two batteries ennyhoo, so if the battery change works, you're where you shoud'a been in the first place. mw

talked to Ryobi and they are vague. It can either mean that the battery is bad, or the charger is bad and another one that maybe the contacts of the battery are dirty or not seating fully in charger. What I would look for in this instance first unplug the charger and look into charging slot to make sure the terminals of the charger are not bent and they come out into the cavity where battery would go. If not gently pull terminal into opening and retry. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance

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.

About 60 minutes...max 90 minutes. Do NOT leave it on the charger for hours and hours...that just cooks the battery.
And switch regularly between the two batteries...else the one that doesn't get used will die.
