1. Your batteries may be too old
2. Some of your batteries cells are bad
3. The charger may not be producing full output

Try dis-assembly and check each cell individually-Bad cells can be replaced at a fraction of cost of battery replacement.

Cordless power tools


To maximize your battery life let them cool down 15 minutes before you put them on the charger.Also let them cool down after charging before use for 15 minutes.Store your batteries with a full charge and condition them every month by using them a little bit and return them to the charger for a full charge.

Just bought a new drill and battery not holding a charge


Batteries sometimes get like yours, after a full charge they last only a couple minutes on the tool. It's usually because of a bad cell in the battery. The only fix is to replace the battery. If you just bought it, take it back for an exchange of the battery or whole tool kit. If the retailer you bought it from won't exchange it contact the company it came from to find out how to get the battery replaced under their warranty.

Revive drill driver battery packs


Rechargeable batteries do have a lifespan, they won't recharge forever. If you have fully discharged the batteries then fully recharged them and they still don't have full power or they only last a couple minutes then they are done. If they won't charge or the charger shows them as defective, the only fix is to replace them.

My dewalt 18v xrp battery wont take a charge


Depending on how old or more to the point how many times you have already charged the battery, it may be worn out. All rechargeable batteries do reach a point where they won't charge up anymore. If you have fully discharged the battery and tried to fully charge it up again and it won't take a charge or only lasts a few minutes on a charge it may be time to recycle it and buy a new one.

14.4 volt cordless drill --- yelloow and green light on lo0nger than 15 minutes, cannot find user manual.


The battery will no longer take a charge. Time for a new one. I had 2 like this in the last month. The batteries where 5 years old and been charge for over 800 cycles each. Age and cycles will wear them out.

If the tools is still good jsut get new batteries. But check the prices. I just bought a new drill and saw set for $90 and 2 new batteries were $60. I got a new set, since the drill was 8 years old and worn out.

I have a Skil Model 2363 drill. Used it about 3 times. Put it in the charger and it won't charge. I have it for about 1-1/2 years. Skil says I have to buy a new one. That the battery is no longer made....


Sometimes places like Batteries + and the Battery Barn (on line web sites) will have replacement batteries for popular models even after the manufactures quit producing them. That is where I found batteries for my Bosch drill.

Both green and yellow light stay on and batteries will not charge 18v


If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.

Craftsman power drill - batteries wont recharge. When I insert dead batteries into the charger The green light ''Fully charged'' comes on and stays on. The batteries do not charge as when they are inserted...


the battery's are most likely dead, (like the real dead) after many uses of rechargeable battery's they slow stop holding charge at all, make sure when you get a new rechargeable battery you fully charge it once and fully discharge it once this will increase batterys life time
