Leave the battery in the charger when you are not using the drill to fully charge them.
Try to use the batteries often like in the light or some other means to occasionaly dischage the batteries for the best battery life.

I bought a Ryobi 12V drill w/ lithium charger. Green light on charger never went solid....continues to blink & fade. Does this mean its in the energy saving mode? Is it fully charged?


How long have you left battery on charger? It will take about 3 1/2 hrs to fully charge. t is probably not a good idea to leave the battery in the charger for long periods of time though, so once it is fully charged put it back in the drill. When fully charged the green led will turn solid. This link will have more info on charger and battery.

How to CHARGE CORDLESS DRILL


First, you should know your battery is a Ni-CD / NI-Mh or Li-ion battery. If it is a Ni-CD / NI-Mh battery, please fully discharged and fully charged it to prevent "Memory effect".

If it is a Li-ion battery, please charge it before you use it.

Please keep in mind that, please fully charge a battery when you store it. And, charge it again every two months.

If your old battery is dead, you can replace it with a new one. Ryobi Power Tool Battery

I have just bought a new AEG BS 12 X cordless drill with two Ni Cad batteries. Both batteries have a bit of charge in them. Do I run them flat before charging or should I charge them up before using them?...


Not necessay to run the batteries dead at this point. Chrge them fully as they are. What occurs as time and use go by, is that the batteries retain a memory of fixed levels and begin resisting the movement of charge past a certain point. To break this memory, you need to have the batteries discharge fully, then recharge fully. But only need to do this once every 20to 30 charges. Or maybe every 10-15 charges when the batteries are over 3years. Enjoy, Macgivor

Bought 2 no BTD142 impact drivers from Makita USA got drop down transformer they just start to charge then tones for broken battery are heard and stop charging, transformer new, batteries new have i done...


these newer chargers do make a tone that can be changed. when the batterys are initially inserted they will make a sound and then when they are fully charged they will make another usually longer sound. you can change it by removing the battery with 5 seconds and reinserting until you find the sound that you like.. I would look at the charging lights before deciding the charger or battery are bad.

Craftsman power drill - batteries wont recharge. When I insert dead batteries into the charger The green light ''Fully charged'' comes on and stays on. The batteries do not charge as when they are inserted...


the battery's are most likely dead, (like the real dead) after many uses of rechargeable battery's they slow stop holding charge at all, make sure when you get a new rechargeable battery you fully charge it once and fully discharge it once this will increase batterys life time

This is the second Ni-MH battery I've bought that I've used infrequently over the last year and now it doesn't hold much of a charge after I charge it. Some people say I shouldn't leave it on the charger...


Any battery should start charging for over 8 hours and then it goes down to 4 hours, however no one working on a job wait 4 hours to get the batteries charged so they start cutting time and for that it get less and less charges inside and after a while it refuse to take any charge..Drain your batteries totally, charge them over night, see if that work if not just use them tell you are done with them, and get new equipments not new battery. When buying new equipments and charging them remember never use it until you fully charge it for 8 hours and not even use it for a second before it’s fully charged... Let me know if that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so I can keep providing this service to everyone and improve on it. God bless

Won't charge fully


If your warranty has expired, you're best off buying a new drill. Replacing batteries will quickly add up to the cost of a new drill.

I know they cost a lot more, but, if you want something that will last a lot longer, look at a Milwaukee, DeWalt, Makita, Bosch, Hitachi for your replacement. Milwaukee actually guarantees their LiIon batteries will last 1,000 charges or longer.
