Yes, the DeWalt radio will recharge the batteries, from the 12 Volt to 18 Volt versions. However, even with the radio plugged into an AC outlet, you have to either have the radio turned on, or have the unit in the AUX setting, in order for the batteries to get charged.

It typicaly takes about an hour +/- to fully charge a discharged battery. I normally don't put batteries directly into a charger right after they become discharged from being used in a tool, since they are still warm from use and charging them will generate more heat in the recharging
process.

Heat is the enemy of rechargeable batteries, so to get the longest working life out of your batteries, I'd let them cool down first, before recharging them, unless you absolutely need to use them right away, then go ahead and recharge them. If you can delay recharging them until they've cooled down, you'll get a more fuller recharge out of them.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

DW911 charge light flashes when no there is no battery in radio


Sometimes when a battery is too low it takes a while for it to initialize in a charger and begin to charge. Clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser and put it back on the charger. Leave it on the charger despite the blinking light. Leave it on the charger for several hours and see if the flash stops and it becomes a constant light indicating normal charging. If this does not work, you may have a short in the battery or in the charger itself. Try another known good battery in the charger and see if you have the same problem. If so the charger has an issue.
Best regards.

Dewalt radio dw911 will play on mains but nothing with battery only


If you pull of the back cover you will find two small fuses near power supply, one of these allows power from battery pack, check with voltmeter for open circuit, I take it that it is not just one battery it does this with.

Radio will not charge a battery but it will run off a fully charged battery


There is a charger module in the radio that may be bad. The module is well over $100, so maybe charging the battery in a seperate charger is the way to go.

Go here:

Choose the type that you have (Type 1 or 2)

On the parts diagram, the charger module is #43.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

I have a Dewalt radio (Dw911) that will only play off the battery, not the power cord. I have checked both fuses and found both to be good. It sounds as if this is a common issue but I have found no...


Mine had the same problem .Try swapping the fuses. Although the fuse looked good mine was bad. Easy fix I hope. Going to auto parts store for new ones.

My dewalt dw911 radio/charger works on either mains or battery but wont charge a battery and blows an internal fuse when both are used together


More than likely your internal charger is faulty. Inside your inernal charger unit check the 2 anmp fuse which is white in colour.

Have you changed the AA Batteries, this is often the fault, when they are flat they lock the radio out. HHM Dewalt Service
