Battery life shortened

After days of continuous use driving timberlock 4" and 6" screws where the batteries had to be recharged when they were still approx. 1/2 charged, because power started to run down,I find my batteries have no power and recharge in about 10 minutes. What did I do wrong?

Milwaukee tool 18 volt nimh battery won!t charge


If the battery pack is more than 2 years old its time for a replacement. The typical charge/discharge life cycle of a rechargeable cell is 500 - 700 times and the shelf life is about 3-4 years from the date of manufacture. If the charging indicator lights up when you dock the battery on to the base and still does not work after 5 hours - its due for a replacement.

Why does my battery not charge when put on the charger


Rechargeable batteries have a limited life determined by how many times they've been discharged & recharged and how old they are. On the charger there are lights and a chart to let you know what's going on with your battery. If it indicated the battery is defective, the charger won't even try to charge the battery and it needs to be replaced. If it goes through a recharge cycle and then lasts for a couple minutes or not at all the battery is used up and needs to be replaced. If none of the lights on your charger are working the problem may be the charger. The only way to test that is to have someone else with an LXT kit try to recharge your battery.

Any battery left in a charger is still hooked up to a circuit. Depending on the charger this can mean a slow discharge is possible. Ryobi's Maintenance Charge Mode means the charger will 'refresh' the battery at regular intervals, usually every 30 days. A battery's lifespan is determined by how many times it is discharged/recharged so to get 'the longest possible battery life' it is desirable to reduce the number of times a battery is recharged. One way is to use the battery until it is dead or near so another is to remove the battery from the charger when it's fully charged to reduce the number of times the charger refreshes the battery.

How to diagnose makita 18v impact losing power. Already replaced battery


If the battery didn't take care of the problem check the brushes next. Take the two screws out of the back cover and check both brushes (Part Number 194427-5). They should be at least 1/4" long and evenly worn, if not replace them. If they're excessively burnt or chipped and broken, check the armature before replacing them. If the commutator is damaged it will only shorten the life of the new brushes.

Dewalt battery charger won't charge


As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.

Makita cordless driver drill model-6347d. ni-mh rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery 1834 18v 2.6ah will not stay charged. battery charter dc 1804- works great.


You say will not stay charged? Over what time period? Are you aware Nicad and NiMh rechargeables discharge naturally at 1% per day so where does that leave your power tool after 3 months? Furthermore they only have around 1000 charges in their useful life so you can immediately see how these tools are not for intermittent(ie handyman) use.
