Because it sat for 4 months your DC brush or brushes could be the problem. It might have accumulated dust and erosion in between the armature. If you have not yet bought a new one, spray it down with electronic cleaner insert the battery again and try it. It should improve some but if not, give it a light spray of WD-40, let it drip out some and then try again.

i've seen people buy adapters to power their cordless drills with an outlet, but they had problems because the outlet didn't have enough raw power for the drills. That leads me to believe an 18v drill pulls some serious amps at full torque and rpm, but the exact numbers would depend on the battery discharge capability which varies on big and small batteries as well as they load if it isn't maxing out the drill.

Your drill needs to be dismantled and the problem discovered.
Know that these modern tools are not always repairable, but you can at least try.
One reason for the last sentence is parts are not readily
available, particularly if they are made in China.
God bless your efforts.
