The batter cells are weak and wont hold a full charge, replace with a new battery, also check that there is nothing in the way of the contacts such as foreign debris inside the battery cavity of the impact.

What does it mean if the red and green light are on at the same time on the charger


If the red and green lights are flashing, the charger is detecting the battey has a defect and is not safe to charge. It could be one of the cells in the battey, a short in the wiring or circuit board or bad contacts. Usually the only fix is to replace the battery.

My dc18ra makita battery charger flashes red and green lights no matter how many bateries i try


The pcb inside the battery has a microcontroller that monitor the charges and charge cycle. When the cell falls below a certain voltage, it will instruct the charger not to charge and will show with a red-green flashing light. If the battery has been tried 3 times in succession then the pcb will brick itself from the makita charger. So first replace the bad cells. There are 2 solutions at this moment: charge with a 3rd party lithium charger like the imax b6 or replace the pcb with a working one. check out my blog on http://mkbl1830.blogspot.com/

Hi my makita 18v impact driver seems to be getting alot weaker throughout the years, still works but no enough torqe


Lithium batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years, and their capacity between charges decreases over the years.
To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.

How to diagnose makita 18v impact losing power. Already replaced battery


If the battery didn't take care of the problem check the brushes next. Take the two screws out of the back cover and check both brushes (Part Number 194427-5). They should be at least 1/4" long and evenly worn, if not replace them. If they're excessively burnt or chipped and broken, check the armature before replacing them. If the commutator is damaged it will only shorten the life of the new brushes.

Hi both red and green lights are flashing and it wont charge battery bl1830 lith ion


If both lights are flashing it means the battery is defective so it won't charge it. By defective it could mean the battery is just worn out or there may be a short in the battery. If the battery is under warranty you can get it replaced at a Makita Service Center, if not you have to buy a new battery.

Skil cordless drill model 2362 - won't charge


I have the same problem. The guys at Batterries Plus told me that 7.2 volt battereis are not easily replaced and definately not through them. If you left it charging for to long (ie over a week when you were gone like me) then the battery is never gonna charge again. You might as well find the same model of dril at skil's reconditioned site for around $40 or buy a brand new one for $60 or $70

Makita dc1804f charger will not charge new i-mh 1834 18v battery


I think your tryiong to charge NIMH batteries oon a charger designed for Lithium Ion batteries. With all the new style batteries such as NICAD, NIMH and LI-ION, charging becomes difficult. Most chargers pre NIMH and LI-ion, were designed for NICAD's. The best advise, match your batteries with the correct charger
