For NiCd and NiMH batteries - check the battery voltage (for a good battery it is ~ 19, V); each battery contains 15 units 1.2 V each; you can test each unit after disassembling the battery case (my have 4 screws each, and the case has bottom and top parts). First charge the batteries; second, disassemble cases and check each unit voltage (shouldn't be less than 1.2 V); then take any battery tester (for AA, AAA and other batteries and accus for home usage), attach 2 long (~10 inches) wires to tester's testing contacts, and test each 1.2V unit for current - if it is in "yellow" or "red" zone - the unit is dead and needs replacement

At times, it happens that batteries act dead or weak because they lose charge from the crystals present inside them. Your batteries seems to have the same problem!

But do not worry, there is a solution. You can now recharge your Nicad batteries with the help of Nicad Battery Repair Manual. With the help of this fix guide, you can recharge the Nicad batteries within no time and make them work like the new batteries. I hope it would be helpful for you!

My battery charger for a Makita 18V drill gives me a flashing green light when I put a battery on to charge. What an I do to fix this?


I think that that is just to show that the battery is charging or it may show that the battery is full. You should only charge batteries when completely flat if it is a nicad battery. This is because the battery thinks that any power left is the new empty power level.

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.

My AEG BL9618 battery charger has started to chirp(beep) is this a fault signal as the user manual is pretty thin on troubleshooting


Does the battery still charge?? The reason I ask is that some tool mfr's are starting to play with the chargers. Insert the battery and remove within 5 seconds and reinsert and then does the noise go aaway or change? Makita has started doing this and also some others. If the battery charges I wouldn't worry too much but try the above method and see.

I bought a new highter current ni cad for my makita; however, the


As long as the charger voltage and the battery voltage match (7 volts) there should be no problem. A fast charger just runs more current thru the battery (per unit time) than a not-so-fast charger. If you notice the battery getting really hot when it's charging (like too hot to touch), stop using it.

Makita cordless driver drill model-6347d. ni-mh rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery 1834 18v 2.6ah will not stay charged. battery charter dc 1804- works great.


You say will not stay charged? Over what time period? Are you aware Nicad and NiMh rechargeables discharge naturally at 1% per day so where does that leave your power tool after 3 months? Furthermore they only have around 1000 charges in their useful life so you can immediately see how these tools are not for intermittent(ie handyman) use.

Problem charging makita batteries 18v li-ion


Unfortunately, Makita’s li-ion battery packs have a design flaw. After having the same problem with my two batteries, I took it apart and saw the problem immediately. You see each battery pack has ten li-ion battery cells and a circuit board with a memory chip witch holds the charging history of the battery pack. But that memory chip constantly draws power from 2 of the 10 batteries. The current it draws is very small but if you consider it over 8 month or more, the power drain becomes very significant. You end up with a battery pack with 8 still fully charged battery cells and 2 drained battery cells. When you put this battery pack in the charger, it detects weak battery cells, assumes they are defective and refuses to charge. To avoid this problem you should charge your battery pack often, even if you haven't used it, every two months should be ok.
I suspect that Makita doesn’t make these battery packs, they make power tools, good ones too. Buy Makita should definitely have a few words with their supplier before they become a liability!

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
