Hi Bluegrass1,

Is this new? If it is, return it to the manufacturer and get another. You should still be under warranty.
If it's old, here's a site where you can get a replacement cord if you want to try that first:

Doesn't look like Milwaukee offers any other parts for the charger. You can contact them at their website at:

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Got new batteries but chRger won't charge them

Battery CHARGERS must have the correct batteries (NiCd or NiMH), plugged into a working outlet, and the batteries much be in a specific position. IF 2 batteries are in a 4 battery charger, and they are both in the center, It won't work. If 2 batteries in a 4 battery charger on the left, it will work if they are both securely positioned.
Once in awhile you get a non-working charger. Make sure you have the right charger with batteries. A few have a switch for NiCd or NIMH.

On some chargers, when the light blinks rapidly, it means that the battery is bad. Try looking up charger information on-line.

Can I use a de 9116 charger for a 18 v 1.3hbattery please

Yes, it's charger for batteries from 12V-18V, but only NiCD and NiMH. Do not use it for charging Li-ION batteries. What type of battery you have should be stated on the battery itself.

18 volt dewalt lithium ion battery charger stopped working for no reason....

This can happen if the battery is too dead for too long. Keep trying to make it work like you have maybe 20-30 times. Or you can leave the battery in for a few days and let the logic chip do it's job. It should start working in a day or two.

Is it ok to use new NiMH battery packs with the original charging base?

Absolutely. NiMH batteries are direct replacements for Nicads - in use and in charging.

What charger should I get for my Evader EXB

I show your car uses 8 “AA” batteries, 6- or 7-cell NiCd or NiMH battery.
Radio Shack or The Shack will have a replacement and the store people should be able to guide you to the correct plug and polarity. NiCD and NiMH batteries are easy to work with, buy, replace and charge. If you use 8 AA batteries, that is 8 X 1.5 (volts) = 12 Volts DC. NiCD and NiMH style batteries should deliver about the same but dont expect to get performance from a NiCad battery as they dont offer enough power.

NiMH is a universal replacement battery. It will work in place of nicad and other types of rechargeable batteries, and will work with virtually any charger
