M-18 red lithium XC 5.0 battery had 1 red led left . Tried to use it and put in charger red/green flashing on charger. Checked 3.0 volts. Can I jump start with like battery to bring it up for charger to charge!
I took a similar battery apart and was surprised to discover a surprising amount of electronics inside. Clearly the modern lithium type of cordless tool battery is very different from the earlier ni-cad type.
The modern charger for lithium type batteries have electronics inside that qualify them as "intelligent". They can "see" inside the battery and will refuse to charge any battery it is not safe to charge, either because there is a danger to the charger or because there is a danger of fire or explosion of the battery.
Unless you are confident the charger has a fault it is best to believe it. It certainly isn't wise to attempt "jump starting" it due to the relatively large amount of current contained in such a battery.
There are dotted around the world, companies that will recondition cordless tool batteries much cheaper in many cases than the manufacturer's replacements.

Is this a 110Volt version that you plugged into 220v?
