When I charge the battery of my new Qualcast cordless 18 v strimmer, the power only lasts for about a minute before reducing dramatically, even though I have charged it overnight. What could be the problem?

    It's a brand new strimmer and battery, so surely it shouldn't need replacing

The battery has reached it's cycles limit and needs to be replaced.

    it certainly could be a bad battery right out of the box, can you take it back? If it loses power no matter what battery you use it may be the motor but its more likely the battery not living up to potential.

Ryobi will not start


The saw you're asking about is battery powered, not gas. If this is the actual model you have, I don't know where you could even put the gas. Have you charged the battery?

My battery does not hold the charge, i will charge it for 24/hour and it only last 5 minute, why is that, iI buy this product for wife when went to Iraq, and when i talked ton her on the phone three months...


NiCad batteries have this problem when they are recharged frequently after being only partially discharged. This is also the case when the batteries are left in the charger continuously - even if the charger is described as being "automatic". I have old 12v batteries that I have been using for 20 years, but I only charge them for a few hours, and only when they have run down enough to be useless. I prevent leaving them too long in the charger by using a timer that cuts the power to the charger after a couple of hours. A couple of years ago I bought new drills and chargers, and believed that the chargers would be automatic and so could be left plugged in. Those batteries only lasted a couple of years, while the old ones are still going strong. I now use the timer for any of these chargers, automatic or not - but I had to buy new batteries first. good luck, Al K

My battery will not keep a charge it don't last 10 minutes/ i like the weedeater but it just don't last long enouh


I had one of these a while ago, the batteries are just cheap. Trimmers also use a lot of energy and battery powered ones aren't the best way to go if you want them to run a long time. I highly recommend replacing it with a good gas or plug in model from your local hardware store, they can help you find the right one to fit your budget. If you don't want to get a new trimmer you are going to be fighting dying batteries every year.

Bought trimmer last year...battery no good this year...will not charge


Check that your charges is working - charge light on the unit or test output voltage. If these are ok, you will have to buy a new power pack for your trimmer or get a battery specialist to make up one for you. This will be by far the cheaper option.

Why is a replacement spool and line not available for Qualcast GGT4502? Its only 7 months old (from Homebase) !!!


I think it's because Homebase no longer sell them. It's really annoying - I bought the last replacement spool that they had a couple of weeks ago for the strimmer I bought last summer.
After this is used, I'll have to buy a new strimmer. Bad judgement there, Homebase.

Doesnt hold charge


The battery is worn out. You need to return it to the manufacturer so they can install a new one. Even rechargeable batteries wear out eventually. If they are in constant use, discharge/recharge, you can reckon on 5 years. If they are left for long periods discharged, or not used, then the life reduces dramatically.
