Brand new drill won't charge - never battery

Took the Porter Cable 18v lithium drill out of the box. Read the charging instructions - followed them and presto NO POWER . Useless is right. Took it back to supplier and he couldn't get it to charge either. Gave me a new one.....same results NO POWER> power pack will not charge the batteries for the unit......a shame for what I had to pay for it!!

Is there 2 type of battery chargers for ryobi one+ and lithium 18v one +


I just went through this with Porter Cable 18V but I can't say it is the same for Ryobi. On the PC, all 18V batteries are interchangable on the tools, but the charging needs are different. A dedicated NiCad charger can't shouldn't be used for liOn but the later chargers will work for either battery.
Ryobi offers an 18V upgrade:

18 V Ni-Cad charger repair


From what I've seen.....usually when Lithium batteries won't charge it's because they lost too much of there charge. As soon as a Lithium battery shows signs of weakness they should be charged. But to answer your question most chargers do have a fuse soldered to a circuit board so yes it's possible to be a fuse but not usually "simple".

This is common on all brands. If the battery is dropped or gets to much moisture in it , it will ruin it. You don't know how many times it was dropped or slammed around during shipment or on the store shelves.

Do not try to repait the battery. There is a possibility you could fix it but don't try it. Acid is not friendly on humans body.
go out and buy new batteries for it. I would suggest you buy the type of battery it came with.
One more thing; Make sure you remove the battery and store it in a normal temperature area anytime it is not in use.

Please rate if this helped you.

Can you charge ryobi lithium batteries in a regular ryobi charger?


NO! Never charge lithium batteries in a charger designed for nickle based batteries like the NiHi your old charger was meant for. Ryobi did design the new Lithium charger to be backwards compatible so you can charge your older 18V NiHi batteries in the Lithium 18V charger.
Also note, NEVER miss-match the voltage, for example, make sure you are not trying to charge 12V batteries in an 18V charger unless the manufacturer has specifically stated that the charger is capable of multiple voltages.

Take it back to the store and tell them it is no good, and get a new pair of batteries, take the charger too. I had the same thing, brand new batteries, gone in weeks, they replaced them, no problem.
