When a Dewalt charger is showing a fast blinking red light it means the battery is no longer chargeable. It may be because of a bad cell or short inside the battery. Whatever the reason the charger will not charge the battery and it needs to be replaced.

    Sometimes it can be that the battery is too Hot/Warm. If you're in a rush chuck it in the freezer for 5 minutes and it may charge.

IF an other then N-cd battery like an Dewalt 18 volt li-ion battery is not recognized on the Dewalt charger take a battery charger for a car enough and safe to handle 12 volt 4 amp and connect + to + and - to - for at least a half minute only to load up the deep discharge protection to the minimum voltage inside the power assembly of the battery the Dewalt charger can if a half minute is not enough try repeat it for 20 seconds , after this place the dewalt battery in the Dewalt charger, and in most case be wondering it worked and , i do this by the Dewalt 18v 2A li ion insert-batteries with in the middle a flat pin between the + and - contacts. in most cases it should working. Li-IOn batteries hates uncontrolled deep discharging Other brands of batteries are only be able to boost with qualified tools like special CADEX chargers but marketing technical replace batteries is the modern service by the good brands by trouble when there is a good warranty management. an other option but not tried that = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpMlKEyYwVM or this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OXOn6YTTiU

May be your battery seen batter days and very near to end of its life or you are not using and charging your battery on regular basis eg two three times in month, these newer li-ion batteries have memory chip fitted inside if the battery is not in use and left without charge for some time this micro chip drain the power from one battery cell to keep its self alive and the charging data, if you check your battery volt with volt meter if its read bellow 14v its means you need new battery and if the meter reads over 15v then maybe one or two cells drained completely, the battery can be charged and working again if you can charge with high amp power battery charger

    Thats correct the Dewalt Li-Ion is one of the brands they are rare about li ion where the batteries can be boosting by a battery charger whitch are used for a car because the most other brandscan only be boosted by special CADEX chargers to boost because of the complex deep discharge protection circuit.

This will sound like a dumb question, I'm sure. Is it not OK to leave today's batteries on the charger? I mean my DeWalt drill came with 2 batteries. One to use and one left in the charger, ready to go? Second part of my question is, out of convenience, I keep all my tools and chargers in my garage. I live in Florida so of course, the garage gets hot. Again with today's batteries should cordless tools be kept indoors? Is the heat bad for them?

SOURCE: Battery Issues

When Li-Ion batteries are discharged to a too low voltage (below 2,75 V/cell, in this case 13,75V) the charger will assume that the battery is damaged, and will not charge the battery. First measure the battery voltage with a volt meter, if the voltage is significally below the 13 V the battery are no good. If you have a reading of lets say around 10 V, you can raise the voltage shortly on the battery, by jumping it with a fully charged battery. Connect the "-" poles on each battery. After this, shortly connect the "+" poles, for no more than 5 seconds,disconnect the wires and immediatly put the battery in question in the charger. If it starts charging, every thing if fine. If not, try the process again, you might wanna recheck the voltage if it rises.
Please be aware, that over discharging Li-Ion batteries, will lead to damage of the Li-Ion cells, which results in loss in capacity, therefore, if you are not to use your Li-Ion tools for a while, make sure the batteries are fully charged.

Hope you guys could have sucess with the above

Best regards
Soeren

SOURCE: Does it harm a Ryobi 18v lithium battery to leave on Charger?

Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.

Just bought a Ruobi drill with 18V Lithium Batteries. Been chatging for over an hour. Still not charged. Just the bottom Green light stays on. Is this normal? How long does it take?


The Ryobi charger will flash green as it charges and then remain steady or slowly flashing green when fully charged. Flashing red means testing and if it remains steady or slowly flashing red it is defective.

Is the green light supposed to flash while charging lithium batteries> just got the p113 charger but no instructions in the dang box


I have used alot of battery type drills and other action tools . Ryobi is on the lower end of the market as opposed to Milwaulkee and Dewalt . But my experience with battery operated tool charging equipment is that if the light is green and it's blinking , I would say it's charging . When the light goes off or stays on . I would say it's charged . Leaving the battery or batteries in the charging unit for 24 hours will not hurt the battery . My solution here is put it in the charger , and check it 12 hours later !

I bought 2 P103 lithium batteries and they will not take a charge from my one + (p110) charger. I was informed that these components are all interchangeable. Will the P103s work with the blue 18v ryobi...


That is true the One+ 18V Li-Ion battery packs will work in any One+ 18V Ryobi tool. However the Lithium ion batteries will not charge in the original P110 NiCd charger. You will need one of the the new series Ryobi One+ 18V "dual chemistry" chargers for that. The will charge both types of battery packs.

Can you charge ryobi lithium batteries in a regular ryobi charger?


NO! Never charge lithium batteries in a charger designed for nickle based batteries like the NiHi your old charger was meant for. Ryobi did design the new Lithium charger to be backwards compatible so you can charge your older 18V NiHi batteries in the Lithium 18V charger.
Also note, NEVER miss-match the voltage, for example, make sure you are not trying to charge 12V batteries in an 18V charger unless the manufacturer has specifically stated that the charger is capable of multiple voltages.

I have a Ryobi 18v drill with battery 130429002 that will not hold a charge. Expensive battery with very little use. Can you help?


If both batteries won't hold a charge the problem may be the charger (not providing a full charge). If one battery is OK and one not holding a charge, the problem is probably a defect with the battery. I know there expensive, (I recently had to replace one for DeWalt).

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
