I have the same tool and misplaced my charger #5102970-19, if you have that charger just plug it in to the wall and the socket in the middle top of the tool.

Plug the charger into the handle. It's a Dewalt charger # 5102970-19 about 7 bucks plus shipping.
Don't leave it charging for more than about 6 hours.

Usually, the battery is removed from the tool and inserted into the charger base. Hopefully, the charger has not disappeared also. Good luck!

I have a black & decker pivot plus that will not charge. How do I know if I need a battery or if I need a charger?

Batteries are only good for about a year, if they are older than that, take them back to the store and see if they are guaranteed at all, (all Ryobi tools and batteries have a date code on them, and they are all guaranteed for 2 years, a little plug for Ryobi,) that is all I buy now days, they work great. So, to check your charger, you will need a volt meter set on 12 or 20 v dc, and see if the charger is putting out, if not, then, the cost of a new ryobi might be the same as the fix for the black and decker. That is if you use the thing, we use our cordless tools every day and charge them every night, hope this helps.

My 12 volt Ridgid drill just quit alltogether. I know it,s not the battery or charger as I have an identical drill and it works just fine. This drill takes the small cartridge type battery. Any...

To start, I assume you took the "good" battery from the working drill and tested the inoperative drill.
Good for doing that.
The other causes I know of in Drills that turn them into paper weights are as follows:
1 Worn Brushed: You can attempt to test this by squeezing the assumed good trigger button and
Taping the drill or lightly banging it on a bench top or something else. If it is brushes, it will often but no necessarily all the time, start to run for a moment, or just running. Since you use the drill and "use it a lot" That will be the first thing I would look for.

2 Trigger Button.

I would bring it to a tool service place or send it back to Ridgid. Try this link

Hope this helps, Happy New Year

Makita ML902 Flashlight how to open case housing to repair

Makita ML902 - great flashlight. but I wanted to upgrade the lamp to LED, and found that the POLARITY was wrong . so i HAD to open the dern thang. the 'special tool' and 'keep in-house' conspiracy had me 'fuming' ... turns out if one were to mark the EXACT spot that the pivot occurs with a felt pen, by drilling a small (sized) hole on each side, (stop as soon as the bit is thru! the shiney material that you stop at are lamp straps) then pressing 2 stiff objects from both sides, the head pops off ! one more screw is uncovered, making it an even 4 screws holding it all together. When i opened the case up, one wire wasn't even soldered to the switch ! aargh. so - swapped polarity, re-soldered the connections, add a bit of fresh solder, re-assemble, voila! I love the 9 volt cases, upgrading everything to 12v and 16v lithium 18650 cells. these old Makita ensembles are great! saw, drill, angle drill, light...

It doesn't run even with a charged battery pack.

dear T,     The problem here is not your driver, but what you are asking it to do.  A good rule of thumb for carpentry jobs is "Always use the right tool for the job!" I work in the carpentry shop at the metropolitan opera in New York.  We use 14.4v and 18v cordless driver drills only.  However, you should know that cordless tools are to be used for small, short jobs.  Once you subject a cordless tool to constant, repetitive tasks that require lots of power, the tool will suffer performance problems and may fail.  Your broken bit indicates that you are expecting this tool to do more work than it can handle.    When driving long (2-1/2" or longer) screws into very hard (most decks are made of pressure treated lumber at least 1" thick) material, the proper tool is a corded drill.  This tool is made to deliver constant force for long service cycles.   When driving screws over 2" into hard woods or other dense material, any cordless drill is only good for less than 6 cycles of use.  A 12 volt battery will give out after several drive cycles under this type of demand.    Unfortunately I think you have depleted your batteries life expectancy.  Most Ni-Cd batteries will only last 1 to 2 years under normal wear.  I think your batteries will need replacement or repair.  Good Ni-Cd repair centers are hard to find, but with determination and persistence, you may find a battery recycler who will replace the cells in your batteries for a fee of about 1/2 the cost of new batteries.  DeWalt batteries are not cheap, so you will have to determine your best choice.  To drive several screws into your deck, I would recommend a corded drill.  It will stand up better under the demand.      As for broken bits, heavy use will always take a toll on your bits.  They will break less if they fit the fastener perfectly.   Also care must be taken to drive the fasteners in perfectly straight, perpendicular to the work surface.    Remember the adage, "Always use the right tool for the job!".  Take one of the fasteners with you when you but new driver bits.  Check for the best fit to the fastener you want to use.   For decades the standard drive bit has been the "phillips" bit.  At the Met we only use "Robertson" drive or square tip wood screws.  They cost more but slip less, and the bits rarely break. Always select a bit that best fits your fastener.    I hope this solution brings you success in your projects.  Best Regards,  Michael Mittelsdorf
