Question about Worx GT WG150 10 in. 18 Volt Cordless String Trimmer w/ 1 battery

3 Answers

The battery on my Worx GT doesn't seem to hold it's charge. I have actually taken it directly off the charger when the light is green and it doesn't have full power. Sometimes it does. The unit is 3 years old. Is this a normal life expectancy for the battery?

    It happened to me. I discovered it's the charger, not the battery.

We had the same problem with our battery. It worked fine for 18 months. Then, this summer, it just wouldn't work at all. We left the battery on the charger until the light went green (we tried this several times) but still the battery wouldn't work. I hooked it up to a Volt meter to verify that the battery was the problem and it was only pulling 1.7 volts (not the 18V the battery for the WG151 model is supposed to have).

WORX BATTERY CHARGER. when i PUT THE CHARGER ON THE GREEN LIGHT COMES ON.


Mike, The red LED is suppose to be on when you insert battery, the LED will go green when battery is charged. Look in your manual, Pg. 11 charging instructions. Check the attached links,manual,instruction and guides, Good luck

My worx will not stay charged... the charger goes green after about 10 minutes and only runs for about 5 minutes...


it sounds like the battery has seen better days. a battery will get a "memory" and after while it could fully charged as far as the charger know but only hold a little charge. with the advices in batteries they shouldn't do this but they all do wear out of time. I would get a new battery, and everything should be just fine. With the any new rechargeable battery you want to make sure that you charge it completely and drain it the whole way before recharging.
Best of luck

Your battery is shot. I had one of these, the batteries are really cheap and don't last long. If you can afford it, ditch the Worx and buy a quality trimmer at your local hardware store. If you are short on cash you can buy new batteries online.

Charger light blinks red never goes to solid red which is charging mood Had a friend charge the battery it does charge problem is with the charger not the battery


Worx has had issues with their chargers and their batteries. They don't seem to last as long as the machine does. A simple voltmeter test of the charger and any battery will tell the story. The charger's output rating should be printed on it and the battery also. Touch test leads from voltmeter to the two and check.

I am having problems with the battery on my worx gt trimmer. It will not stay charged even though the battery charger indicates a green light. What am I doing wrong? I put it back on he charger it will...


You can determine exactly what is going on by using a small handheld voltmeter. They are inexpensive, easy to use and come in very handy. Just test the output of the charger (after noting what the volt-output-rating is) by touching the leads of the meter to the terminals on the charger. If the charger is working at all, this is not a dangerous test. Conversely, test the output of your batteries by touching the leads of the voltmeter to the terminals on them. I suspect the charger is bad because after they overheat, they quit working and some don't last very long. I don't think YOU are doing anything wrong, just maybe the companies that manufacture these 2 electrical products are.
