You can leave it as long as you can.The charging process will stop when full.Leaving will provide fresh full battery capacity.

CAN YOU LEAVE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY FOR A 19.2 VOLT CRAFTSMAN CORDLESS DRILL IN THE CHARGER ALL THE TIME/


It depends on the charger taht comes with this drill, the dumb charger will just keep on charging the batteries even when it if fully charge and does not sop, which will be bad for the batteries, the smart charger (more expensive and has electronics inside the charger) will go into floating charge when the batteries are fully charge which will prevent the batteries from being overcharged. If in doubt, remove it from the charger after overnight charging.

Faullty makita DC1804T charger red lights keeps flashig and wont turn green.


I think if you have a battery that is pretty much dead, the Makita charger will never fully charge it and so it blinks. My newer battery charged up in 1/2 an hour but my old-as-the-hills one just keeps on blinking. I removed it and it works. It never really held a charge long though, for years now. It would be nice if the charger had some kind of manual telling you what all those universal symbols(I don't know who's universe they're talking about) mean.

How long should I leave my drill on the charger? It's a makita #6040d.


It shouldn't take much more than one hour to charge your battery. If it isn't taking a charge or the charge is weak, your battery may be worn out. Look for a local dealer of Makita parts or try www.ereplacementparts.com for a new battery.

Bought 2 no BTD142 impact drivers from Makita USA got drop down transformer they just start to charge then tones for broken battery are heard and stop charging, transformer new, batteries new have i done...


these newer chargers do make a tone that can be changed. when the batterys are initially inserted they will make a sound and then when they are fully charged they will make another usually longer sound. you can change it by removing the battery with 5 seconds and reinserting until you find the sound that you like.. I would look at the charging lights before deciding the charger or battery are bad.

Battery charger just flashes to say the battery has to cool down but will not start charging.tried another charger same thing happens but does not show that the batteries are faulty!


Unfortunately, Makita’s li-ion battery packs have a design flaw. After having the same problem with my two batteries, I took it apart and saw the problem immediately. You see each battery pack has ten li-ion battery cells and a circuit board with a memory chip witch holds the charging history of the battery pack. But that memory chip constantly draws power from 2 of the 10 batteries. The current it draws is very small but if you consider it over 6 month or more, the power drain becomes very significant. You end up with a battery pack with 8 still fully charged battery cells and 2 drained battery cells. When you put this battery pack in the charger, it detects weak battery cells, assumes they are defective and refuses to charge. To avoid this problem you should charge your battery pack often, even if you haven't used it, every two months should be ok.
I suspect that Makita doesn’t make these battery packs, they make power tools, good ones too. But Makita should definitely have a few words with their supplier before they become a liability!
