SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: can i charge a 14v battery using a 18v charger (both are ryobi)

Absolutely not. The risk of damage to the battery is only a minor concern compared to the fire hazard you would be creating.

SOURCE: My porter cable 19.2v model 8605 battery charger

Porter Cable has not offered a replacement for their poorly designed 19.2V chargers. I had the same problem and happen to like my drill and circular saw. I found a universal charger called a model number CHUN-2420. Google it--I got mine for $27 plus shipping. All you need to do to make this work is splice 3 wires.

My charger is a PC model 8624, so the instructions might vary slightly between the chargers. Remove the six screws on the bottom of your PC charger. Remove the bottom section. Remove the screw(s) that attach the circuit card to the plastic housing. Disconnect the 3 pin white charging connector from the circuit card, and cutoff the connector. Discard the circuit card and power cord. Cut the 3 conductor (red/yellow/black) cable coming out of the Chun-2420 approximately 2' from the charger. Splice these three wires to the three wires in the charger housing that connect to your battery. In my situation, Red/Red, Yellow/Yellow, White/Black. To verify, red=positive, black/white=negative, yellow=temperature sensor. Wrap the red/yellow/black cable with electrical tape where it exits the PC charger through the power cord hole. Re-attach the bottom.

Is there 2 type of battery chargers for ryobi one+ and lithium 18v one +


I just went through this with Porter Cable 18V but I can't say it is the same for Ryobi. On the PC, all 18V batteries are interchangable on the tools, but the charging needs are different. A dedicated NiCad charger can't shouldn't be used for liOn but the later chargers will work for either battery.
Ryobi offers an 18V upgrade:

Why wont my dirt devil gator 18v charge?


Hello! If you are experiencing a short run time your battery may need to be reset. Try completely depleting the battery. Run the vacuum until it shuts off. Then re-charge for a full 24 hours. The indicator light will come on to indicate the unit is charging. If there is no indicator light on the charger, the charger may need to be replaced. Below is a link where you may go to purchase the charger if needed. Hope this helps!

18 V Ni-Cad charger repair


From what I've seen.....usually when Lithium batteries won't charge it's because they lost too much of there charge. As soon as a Lithium battery shows signs of weakness they should be charged. But to answer your question most chargers do have a fuse soldered to a circuit board so yes it's possible to be a fuse but not usually "simple".

Porter cale drill and two batteries got wet they wont hold charge bought two new batteries they do same thing even tried them in the sawsall still does not hold charge for maore than a couple minutes...


If the charger got wet, or you tried to charge batteries that got wet... yes. Replace the charger, and throw away or recycle the water damaged batteries. I know thats not what you wanted to hear, but look at the bright side! The drill is most likley fine!

I bought the porter cable lithium 18v hand drill around November 2010. I have used the drill 3 times. One of the batteries will charge and one of the batteries will not. When I attach it to the charger...


This is common on all brands. If the battery is dropped or gets to much moisture in it , it will ruin it. You don't know how many times it was dropped or slammed around during shipment or on the store shelves.

Hi i have a litnium mkita 18v lxt cordless drill i have 2 batties and all 3 lights are staying on it wont charge its the simbal with the spaner and fan on it that comes up can you please tell me whats rong


HI, Its ok for the charger to have those lights on. If you have been using for quite some time or the batteries have had several charges then the charger will operate a service on the batteries to keep them in good condition. We have had a few take as long as an hour to service , then it goes into normal charge mode. Just leave it on to do its service and it should be fine. If there was a problem then the red and green lights would alternate flash and a siren beep would sound. Hope this was of help to you.
