  • 18V Battery Charger

    Every time I plug my battery into the charger it goes into the evaluate blinking mode. Does this mean my charger is no good or is it my batteries?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Forum. Could be either. If one of your tools (usually the drill) has a short in the trigger it will pop the battery and the charger will just sit at evaluate. Time for a trip to the repair shop. Bring the whole kit so they can check everything

      More specific information would be helpful....
      Ni-cad battery?
      Lithium-ion battery?
      single charger? oldest, newer, newest model?
      dual charger?

      age of battery?

      etc.

      If it's a lithium-ion battery you need to follow the warranty process.
      If it's a nicad battery you may have a chance to jump start it.

      Do a search on batteries and chargers as there is a lot of valuable information here and too detailed to parrot it here
