Just bought a new drill and battery not holding a charge

Batteries sometimes get like yours, after a full charge they last only a couple minutes on the tool. It's usually because of a bad cell in the battery. The only fix is to replace the battery. If you just bought it, take it back for an exchange of the battery or whole tool kit. If the retailer you bought it from won't exchange it contact the company it came from to find out how to get the battery replaced under their warranty.

Makita 1822 battery not holding charge

If the Makita battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I've got a Bosch ps30 drill that uses bat411

Directions say green light indicates that the battery is fast charging only,it does not indicate at exact point of full charge. I let my batteries charge for 12 hours for the first time charging,found out myself the same way. Try that and you will notice the difference.

Capitable battery only

There may have a few reasons for that.

1. Some batteries are not orginal so they do not give enough performance. If it is so then change your battery with an original one.

2. If a battery is Nickel-Cadmium and is not used under the condition of "full charge and full discharge" as the time passing it shows "memory reaction" and never acts as if it is full and can not be charged again. If your battery is so then change your battery with new one.

3. If a battery is out of order then it shows an unusual reaction. Sometimes give its performance sometimes not. If it is so then change your battery with new one.

4. If a battery is not charged enough then also it does not show an enough performance. If the situation is so then charge your battery again.

5. Sometimes battery dies. So please look at its buying date. Sometimes the time of manufacturing date and the time being and the period between these is greater than the battery usage period. If it is so change your battery with new one.

If this helped you please vote so I can continue to help people.

Charger died.

It is usually a current limiting resistor anyway... so I would think that about 100 Ohms should be all good, you generally need about 250 - 300mA to charge ya batteries. It is simple Ohms law calculation.

Tool will not take a charge

It sounds as though it should have its last rights. Generally a battery will go dormant after awhile that is why even though you might not use the drill or tool you should charge the battery at least once a month just to keep the cells active.

Jobmate 18 volt chordless drill charging

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.
