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.

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
