They usually have a little pic on there that tells you what the blinking means. I think it is charging, but sometimes it needs a green light too. Check it out. Mine flashes all kinds of signals, when it hits a dead battery, one that won't charge, it flashes something else. It only takes an hour to charge. Is the battery getting charged at all? Hope this helps.

Broken dewalt battery 18v lithium ion 2.0ah flashes fast red when in charger


When a Dewalt charger is showing a fast blinking red light it means the battery is no longer chargeable. It may be because of a bad cell or short inside the battery. Whatever the reason the charger will not charge the battery and it needs to be replaced.

One thing I,ve found with cordless tool batteries is that if they're completely dead, the charger won't recognize them. Try hooking a known good battery with a charge up to the problem battery, terminal for terminal, with small jumpers. Leave it hooked up for a minute, maybe a minute and a half. this should be sufficient to provide just enough charge to bring the battery up to the "threshold level" required for the charger to recognize it. Then, simply charge the battery in the normal way. If this doesn't work, you may need new batteries, or a new charger. Hope this helps you.

I have a 12v xrp cordless drill. in the past 6 months i have purchase 3 new batteries. none will hold a charge. what is the problem.


You may want to try a different charger base. Any way you can borrow one so you don't have to purchase first?
If for some reason the charger isn't working well, you may be getting a partial charge and only that.

You may even want to rent a cordless just to try charging your own battery on a different base.
before you buy.

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.
