Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
Replacing battery is not always necessary. Per paslode website, when the charger is flashing back and forth between red and green it is in slow charge mode. It takes 20 minutes to get out of slow charge. After 20 min the light should be solid red until full charge is achieved. If the red green flashing continues after 20 min then there may be a problem with the battery

The battery is too discharged and the only way to charge it is to give it quick with something giving out a higher voltage. The batteries are 6V so use something like a car battery charger (12V), hold the red (positive) to the battery positive (+) connection and the negative to the batteries negative (-). Hold for about 60 seconds then put the battery back into the paslode charger and it should charge correctly. This works for most similar batteries such as those for laptops or drills too. They get too discharged and the charger will not recognize them correctly.

To prevent such problems as much as possible, you can regularly clean the charging contacts of the battery and the charger
