Default Dewalt charger overcharging ??


If I let my drill battery charge for 1hr or so it works really well.

If I leave it in the charger over night and use it the next day, its
junk, with barely a charge.

You would think the thing would do a fast charge and then go to
a functioning trickle charge so you could keep in on there for
ever and use it when you need it.

It has done this since new

Talk to DeWalt.

A few years ago, they had a recall.

Same thing happened to a friend of mine. They are getting him a new
charger and battery. They say it was recalled. His was one year old.

I took it up to the dewalt service center and moaned .. and they
sold me a newer one (charger) for half price.



How many volts ? How much $$

My 6 yo DeWalt 12V batteries bit the dust. They wanted about 50 bucks each
everywhere for replacements.
Then, I found the whole Kit/drill/charger 2 batts on sale for 89.00 with a
$ 30.00 rebate..That worked for me.

It came with a charger for 7.2 V to 14.4 V but the charger I already have
works fine..and I now have another new DeWalt drill (I dont need right now)

No wonder I bought the 18V Ryobi outfit lately:

3 spd hammer drill $ 49.97
Charger $ 19.97
2 Batteries $ 39.97

The whole set up for $ 110.00 Thats the price of 2 Dewalt 18V batteries
