Question about Craftsman 19.2V C3 DRILL/DRIVER

1 Answer

I have 19.2 volt EX battery. My charger said batteries are defected. Salesman said if batteries are not charged every 3-6 months they get a bad cell and go bad. Is this correct?? If neither battery was in any equipment how could they go bad? Thank you, Betty

Hi Betty,

Batteries start deteriorating the day they are made. I have three drills exactly like yours. I have found the batteries last longer if they are exercised and I fould that even then, batteries don't last much past the 2 1/2 - 3 year point. Sadly, it is cheaper to purchase a new drill kit that has a new drill, a new light and two new batteries than it is to buy new batteries.

Whats the answer? Exercise your batteries ... don't store them on the charger ... let them run down once in a while then charge them up again.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

Why your phone won't charge


<span>Hello,<br /><br />there are three or more reason why your your phone won't charge;<br /><br />1. The charger might be defective.<br />2. The charging port of the phone might be defective.<br />3. The battery cell might be very weak or the battery might be defective.<br /><br />Charger<br /><br />A defective charge can cause a phone not to charge. To actually find out if your charger is defective or not, borrow a charger from a family or friend that has the type of your phone, use the borrowed charger to on your phone. If the the phone charges, then obviously, your charger is defective and need to be replaced. It is also good to test your charger on another phone to confirm the status of the charger.<br /><br />Make sure you run the above test, before buying another charger so that you don't waste your money. Sometimes, charger might be working and phone won't charge due to some other reasons that would be discussed below. So confirm first before buying another charge. Don't buy another charged based on assumptions........<br /><br />Battery<br /><br />A battery that is very flat, I mean a battery that its cell is very weak, won't charge with a phone charger. You might have to leave the battery in the phone with the charge plugged in for some minutes or hours before the battery will begin to charge and other times, it might not charge at all.<br /><br />What make batteries to be in this kind of condition is; <br /><br />1. If you use you phone to the point when it says "low battery" and you still don't charge the battery and the phone turns off by itself. This can run down a battery cell.<br />2. If you leave a battery in the phone idle for a days or months, the battery cell will become weak. Or if you leave a battery used for days or months.<br />3. If you don't use the correct/right charger for your phone, this can drain the battery instead of charging it.<br /><br />Batteries in such condition will have to be fast charged with a desktop charger. The desktop charger will be connected directly to the battery and the battery will definitely pick up within 1 hour. Thereafter, you can continue charging it with your phone charger and it will charge immediately.<br /><br />But if the battery is defective, it won't charge at all. Even if you use a desktop charger. Such batteries needs to be replaced. Also, it is good to test the phone with another battery, and charge it to confirm before buying another battery.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what a desktop charger looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_4.jpg" /><img src="walesarumi_3.jpg" /><br /><br />Charging port<br /><br />If non of the above seems to be the reason why your phone won't charger, then it means the charging port is defective. <br /><br />Most times defective charging port confuses people. They think the charger is the reason why their phone won't charge and after using another charger on their phone they still find out that the does still does not charge.<br /><br />Once your phone doesn't charge, the first this you test is the charger and second, the battery. But if the battery and charger seems not to be the cause of the problem, then it is the charging port that is cause the problem.<br /><br />Your charging port might not be defective, maybe it loosed contact with the phone phone or it shifted from it's position. Sometimes, the way we forcefully insert our charger into the phone can make the charging port loose contact.<br /><br />At this point, you will have to disassemble your phone. But if you feel it is a task you cannot perform yourself, then take the phone to a repairman to help you out. But if you feel you can do it yourself (DIY), read further.<br /><br />Turn off the phone. Remove the battery. After that, get a phone screw driver, unscrew all the phone screws, remove the phone cover in order to gain access to the phone panel and get to the charging port. <br /><br />Check if the charging port actually loosed contact. If it didn't loose contact, then you will have to replace the charging port. <br /><br />Note that some charging port are soldered to the phone board and some are not. So if yours is not soldered, simply remove the charging port and make a replacement. But if is soldered, you will be needing a rework station. Rework station is what you will use to remove the charging port.<br /><br />Below is a picture of what the rework station looks like;<br /><br /><img src="walesarumi_5.jpg" /> <img src="walesarumi_6.jpg" /><br /><br />I hope the above makes sense to you.......<br /><br />Good luck.<br /></span>

Okay, I'm working on a scooter for my nephew that originally came with (2) 12 volt 12Ah batteries minus the charger. and I know I need to replace them with (2) batteries of the same 12 volts and lets


not exact, to charge apropiate needs 10% more than nominal voltage. if not, will not charge the batteries.
And the charger its very important because you can over charge the battery.An example,if you have a 12 Amps Batteries each one if you put it in series will be 24 Volts.at parallel conection will be 12 volts but the double of Amps.
At serial connection will be 12 Volts the amps will be the same but the volts will be 24.

The charger at 12 Volts must be 13.8-14.5 DC Volts and divide the Amps in Hours.
The charger at 24 Volts must be 26-28 Volts. to charge well.

The charger for 12 amps batt example must charge 2 amps per hour at 6 hours = 12 Amps.(2 Amps Charger by 6 Hours Charging= 12 Amps.(Fully Charged.
3 Amperes Charger needs 4 Hours to charge 12 amps Batt.
5 Amperes Charger needs 2 Hours charging an a quarter
All of this is at DC Current.

Luck.

Makita battery charger wont charge


If both lights on the charger are flashing it is indicating you have a bad battery and the charger will not charge the battery. The charger has circuitry that tests the battery and if it 'thinks' the battery is defective it will not attempt to charge it. The only way to verify whether it's the battery or charger is to try charging your battery on another charger or try charging another battery on your charger. Most of the time it's a bad battery.

Need a battery charger for the 21.6 volt battery


It will work if it is of the same charger/receiver style. The only issue is that you will only be charging to 19 volts and not 21.6, I would estimate by doing some simple math that you would lose about 6-8% of the batteries capacity but you would be able to use it.

A brand new Samsung GT-S5233S is unable to charge low batteries. Salesman said the battery is too low and it can be charged only through universal battery charger. Any expert advice on this issue.


Hi. Thanks for using fixya.
The salesman is correct. Cell phone batteries need a "boost" sometimes when they are really dead. You can purchase a universal charger at a local store or order it real cheap on ebay. The battery will have to be charged outside of the phone.
Another way to get your battery going again is to put it in the freezer.
1)Place the battery in a seal-able plastic bag and place it in the freezer. This plastic bag protects the battery from condensation.
2)Allow the battery to freeze for 24 hours. Remove the battery from the freezer and allow it to thaw for 4 to 8 hours
3)Return the battery to the phone and turn the phone on. Make sure the battery is no longer cold before returning it to the phone.

This will revive your battery also. But for a new phone, I recommend getting a universal charger. U wont have to use it often. Its just to "jump-start" the battery.
I hope your battery works soon.

    Battery wont charge and the light just blinks on and off


    If your charge light will not work, then do the following..
    First make sure you have power where you are plugging it in. If you have power, then plug in the charger, (here I am not sure you are talking about a charger or using a cord to charge the battery in the camera,.. some can be charged that way) and see if the light comes on. If not, then do the following. use a volt meter and check to see if you have voltage in the charger at the connections for the battery. If you have the correct voltage ,power with the charger plugged in, then the battery is suspect and more than likely bad. Replace the battery with a new one.
    If you have no power, or low voltage, then the charger is defective, either in the cable or internally. Get another battery charger for your battery.
