Even if you don't use it, it will die in 2 years. It is the battery, I have piles of batteries and piles of old drill motors that we don't buy batteries for anymore, because it is cheaper to buy a new gun with fresh batteries than it is to buy 2 batteries. There is no better, best , they are all the same. We have every brand made in the junk pile. Hope this helps.

Battery not charging


You didn't indicate the make and model number of your tool, but almost universally, all lights flashing on a charger indicate a bad battery. If the system in the charger detects that the battery has a short, bad cell or anything else wrong, it will not attempt to charge the battery.

Does it harm a Ryobi 18v lithium battery to leave on Charger?


Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.

My 18 volt makita battery wont charge and it is less than a year old. Do you know y? Can i fix it?


Those batterys need to be on the charger if they are not in the tool. I would try to get the store to exchange the entire set for a new one. If that fails ebay sells batterys pretty cheap.

My makita 18v 2.0 battery won't keep a charge


How old is the battery?
They have a service life and require replacing after they no longer hold a charge. This could be 2 years or 8 years depending on how often it is used and how regularly it is charged etc.

If it is a new battery, then take it back as it could be defective.

Possibly could also be the charger but you could verify that by charging a different battery and seeing if it charges that second battery ok, or not.
