CORDLESS DRILL WONT CHARGE DESPITE NEW BATTERY - HELP

by twarzeen » Fri Apr 01, 2011 5:43 pm

I HAVE A BLACK AND DECKER 18V CORDLESS DRILL WHICH SUDDENLY STOPPED CHARGING. SO I BOUGHT A NEW CHARGER FROM EBAY WHICH CHARGED IT FULL SPEED BUT LASTED 2 MINS BEFORE DYING. THEN I BOUGHT A NEW 18V BATTERY IDENTICAL TO THE ORIGINAL WHICH AGAIN CHARGED FULL SPEED THEN CUPPUT AGAIN. WHAT IS GOING ON? I HAVE NO CHARGING LIGHT ON THE DRILL SO UNSURE WHETHER FULLY CHARGED OR NOT. I HAVE ALREADY SPENT £40 AND WANT TO BIN THE WHOLE LOT NOW. THE DRILL IS APPROX 3 YEARS OLD. PLEASE HELP I AM A DESPERATE HOUSEWIFE WHO CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT A DRILL FOR MUCH LONGER!

Re-sell the nearly new bits on ebay and buy a new drill.
