Had the same problem with some makita batteries, Was going to throw them away so decided to take apart and see what was happening. The are made up of 1.5 volt cells soldered together, found that many had .9 volts or less and others had 1.5 or more. This means that some of the cells had gone bad (probably due to lack of chemical reaction). Found that if I collected all of the 1.5 volt together could charge just fine. Problem is it is very hard to get them all soldered back together and even harder to enclose them. If a mfg. could come up with some way to change cells individually they could make a lot of money and save us a lot. So the answer to your question is buy you at least one more battery and recycle your old one.

There are three visble screws and one hidden. Use the right size torx driver if you have it, or a small allen wrench works too and undo the screw that is visble on one side of the pack. Snap the false bottom off of the pack and reveal two more screws to remove. One screw is behid a plastic cap over a fourth obvious screw location. Drill the cap and unscre this screw also. Be sure there are no lables holding the two side together. Pressing down on the battery holdin clasp makes the sides easier to separate. Watch for falling parts. That's it!

Absolutely not. The risk of damage to the battery is only a minor concern compared to the fire hazard you would be creating.

This usually indicates that one or more of the rechargeable C batteries is not recharging. The batteries are standard rechargeable C batteries but the terminals are spot welded and are very hard to separate. There are 15 rechargeable C batteries in the Ryobi 18v battery pack. A battery tester will show which battery(s) needs replacing. There are refurbishing centers (Google search) but they will replace all the batteries and usually upgrade the OEM 1500 mah batteries with 2100 mah, or higher, batteries.
