Question about Makita 18V LXT Lithium - Ion Cordless Impact Driver Kit Model BTD140
Bought two new batteries for my 18v cordless drill makita mxt 8444D. Batteries are 2.6 Ah 1834 NI-MH. The charger is Ref DC1804F. When inserting batteries into the charger the green and red light flashes alternately. This would suggest that the batteries are faulty - however, they are brand new.
That is the correct charger for either nicd or nimh batteries. It should work. Even though your batteries are new, they could be old stock, and they degrade sitting on the shelf. Return the batteries.

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
