SOURCE: 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

Hi again, Because of the age of these batteries, this may or may not work but you have nothing to lose. The theory here is that over time, oxides built little bridges in a ni cad battery between the anode and cathode thus shorting the battery, shocking the battery burns those bridges and if the cells are still intact it will work again. So take your stronger battery or cables and being sure to observe the correct polarity touch or brush the positive to positive and negative to negative several times. The first times will spark and then as the bridges burn the spark will decrease. Put the battery in the charger and the charge light should come on. Leave the battery in the charger until it reaches a full charge. If after this procedure you still have the defective indication, then the cells were bad and you will still have to replace the battery. Good luck, please let me know how this works for you!

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

I have a Ryobi 18v drill with battery 130429002 that will not hold a charge. Expensive battery with very little use. Can you help?


If both batteries won't hold a charge the problem may be the charger (not providing a full charge). If one battery is OK and one not holding a charge, the problem is probably a defect with the battery. I know there expensive, (I recently had to replace one for DeWalt).

MAKITA LXT BL1830 18V LITHIUM-ION 3.0AH BATTERY


If the charge count on the batteries is under 300, Makita will replace them. Makita has a known defect in this battery that causes the battery to shut down before it is dead. So as of now they are exchanging ones with low use.

If they are truly defective and makita won't replace, you have to open them, find the dead cell or blown fuse, and replace. Search youtube makita battery for a video on repairing this battery. But once the red and green lights on the charger flash, the the battery can't be charged on a Makita charger -- it's been locked. So use a third party charger.

My makita 18v 2.0 battery won't keep a charge


How old is the battery?
They have a service life and require replacing after they no longer hold a charge. This could be 2 years or 8 years depending on how often it is used and how regularly it is charged etc.

If it is a new battery, then take it back as it could be defective.

Possibly could also be the charger but you could verify that by charging a different battery and seeing if it charges that second battery ok, or not.
