What you are facing is a problem of weak battery. Sometimes, batteries tend to show that they are charged completed whereas they are not and drains very quickly. In order to come over this problem, you have 2 choices. Either buy new Nicad batteries or charge them through a process that will make them work like the new ones. This can be done by NiCad Battery Repair Complete Manual which is very easy to follow and has high potential for future progress since this guide helps to recharge every Nicd battery without any problem.

Your battery is most likely a nikle cadmium (sometimes called "NiCad") these batteries develop a memory that sometimes makes them only stay charged for as long as they have been used. Some of the newer chargers discharge the battery fully before restarting the charge which usually brings them back to full charge (normal length of time). Also you battery may just be worn out, they can only be charged a finite number of times. I would first discharge the battery till it is absolutely dead and try the charge routine again. if it doesn't work buy a new battery. P.S. There are ways to erase the memory of a battery, but it is considered dangerous for those inexperienced with the technique, so I won't explain it here.

Should my battery charge light remain on red or should it change to green. 6 screws is all I could draw. Did I do something wrong?


Some chargers flash red when charging and go solid when charged.

Some go red while charging and then turn green when fully charged.

Depends on your charger as there is no standard.

I bought a Ryobi 12V drill w/ lithium charger. Green light on charger never went solid....continues to blink & fade. Does this mean its in the energy saving mode? Is it fully charged?


How long have you left battery on charger? It will take about 3 1/2 hrs to fully charge. t is probably not a good idea to leave the battery in the charger for long periods of time though, so once it is fully charged put it back in the drill. When fully charged the green led will turn solid. This link will have more info on charger and battery.

Green light on new Ryobi charger flashing when trying to charge battery it that normal


Yes, the green light flashes until the battery is fully charged on Ryobi chargers. This will change to a solid green light when the battery is fully charged until the charger goes to a power-saving mode. Not all of the Ryobi chargers have a power-saving mode. However, for those that do, the green led will dim over time and then brighten and dim slowly again in this mode.

My Ryobi charger, model P113, actually has a key for the LEDs on the unit on the left of the battery port. The manual for this charger is here: https://manuals.ttigroupna.com/system/files/5495/original/P113_192_trilingual.pdf?2011 . Ryobi has many of their manuals on their site. Look up your charger/tool here: https://www.ryobitools.com/power-tools/support/manuals , Home Depot's web site also has many of these manuals on the product site for the tools that they sell.

I hope this helps.

Flashing red light on Morphy Richards 732000 Supervac


If it is supposed to go green then the battery is not being fully charged. Unit is under warranty and now is the time to have matter addressed.

Greetings Gurus. I have Makita charger model DC18RC, battery model is 18v BL1815...manual is of limited help. I'm trying to understand what the indicator lights mean, what the time is for charging,


I agree that the pictographs are not very helpful. You probably have one of the new chargers. I have an old one, which is a little easier to figure out.

From top to bottom

1. The flashing green light with the electric plug indicates that the unit is plugged in and ready to go.
2. The flashing red little fan means that the battery is too warm so it is just cooling it and not charging it at that moment.
3. The solid red empty battery outline means that it is charging but hasn't got very far, less than 80% full.
4. The mostly full battery outline with both solid red and green lights at the same time means it is 80% full or more
5. The full battery outline and solid green with the musical notes means it is full up.
6. The broken battery outline with flashing red and green means you've got a broken battery.
7. The yellow light with the wrench means the charger is "conditioning" the battery, whatever that means.
8. The yellow light with the fan means "cooling abnormality."

Hope this helps

My charger is flashing red when i place the battery in it


Ridgid charger lights read as follows: Solid red; charger has power. Flashing red; charger is evaluating the battery, checking if it's cool enough to charge and if it is in chargeable condition. If the battery is hot, i.e. just came off the tool after extended use, it won't charge the battery until it cools down. Flashing red & green; the battery is defective and the charger will not charge it. Solid red & flashing green; battery is charging. Solid green; battery is full.

When charging battery flashes red then stays on red.how long should it take to change to green?.its a dewault9130 18 volt


it doesn't change to green, the solid red light means it is fully charged, there should be a legend on the front of the charger to help you with this. If it flashes real fast the battery is malfunctioning and slow flashing is charging and again solid is fully charger.

Batteries don't charge. I have a new battery, and neither of the old or new batteries work in the charger. I get flashing lights only, sometimes red, sometimes green, but in the end, the battery isn't...


Dust getting in the charger is a problem, Try blowing it out with a moisture-free dust remover, found at most any store. Green flashing means improper power, due to dust or power from the outlet, try a differant wall outlet. Red flashing means the charger or battery is to hot and must cool down before it will charge. The charger will not charge a battery if the lights are flashing. Solid Red light means it is charging and solid green light means it is charged. Plug the charger in first before putting the battery on the charger. If the charger has been droped or hit the floor the coil inside could have broke loose and dammaged the charger requiring it to be replaced.
