SOURCE: I purchased a new charger for my Dewalt Cordless Drill

They usually have a little pic on there that tells you what the blinking means. I think it is charging, but sometimes it needs a green light too. Check it out. Mine flashes all kinds of signals, when it hits a dead battery, one that won't charge, it flashes something else. It only takes an hour to charge. Is the battery getting charged at all? Hope this helps.

Dewalt 30 Minute Fast Charger does it work in uk 230v


Some battery can not be charged by fast charger, because this can damage the battery. You can think to replace it to a new charger, a 7.2V 9.6V 12V 14.4V 18V NI-CD NI-MH BATTERY charger for Dewalt

Dewalt de0245


These de0245 chargers are designed to detect certain problems that can arise with battery packs which would be indicated by the red light flashing at a fast rate.

If this occurs, re-insert battery pack. If problem persists, try a different battery pack to determine if the charger is OK. If the new battery charges correctly, then the original pack is defective and should be returned to a service centre for recycling.

If the new battery pack gives the same trouble indication as the original, have the charger tested at an Authorised Service Centre.

Two quick flashes problem powerline what does that mean exatly


From the manual.

Some chargers have a Problem Power Line indicator. When the charger is used with some

portable power sources such as generators or sources that convert DC to AC, the charger may

temporarily suspend operation, flashing the red light with two fast blinks followed by a
pause. This indicates the power source is out of limits.

I can,t charger my dewalt batteries , so is the fault with my charger


It is likely the fault is the battery and not the charger. To confirm this take the charger to any Radio Shack and ask them to test the charger or if you have a small meter do it yourself, the charging voltage will be up to 5 volts more than the rated battery voltage of the drill, so if you get a high reading don't worry about it. Fast charger will be way over the battery rating, also fast chargers have a cost, they shorten battery life due to heat. I have had many battery powered tools, I have found that the batteries last about 2 years on average. I have this same Dewalt drill driver.

I purchased a new DeWalt DW1916 Battery charger and when I install the battery for charging, the red light on the charger blinks on and off and after an hour the battery was still discarged.


If you look on the charger there should be a flashing codes should be explained depending on the type of flashes. Very fast flashes, means bad battery.

I HAVE A 36 VOLT DEWALT RECIP SAW, THE BATTERIES ARE NEW AND SO IS THE CHARGER. BUT THE CHARGER KEEPS BLINKING AS THOUGH THE BATTERIES ARE RUINED. CAN I RESET THE BATTERIES TO TEST


Charger blinks while charging, stops when batteries are fully charged.
New batteries may not be charged from factory. Let them charge overnite and see if it stops blinking.
