How To Take Good Care Of Your Power Tools Posted By: Toolbatter Proper maintenance of your power tools is essential. Doing so not only helps extend their effective service life but increases your chances of finishing that project with all of your digits. Norm "Ten Fingers" Abram from This Old House magazine has some suggestions. I Remember When… Old circular saws used to have grease cups and a lubrication schedule you really had to follow if you wanted your saw to last. Power tools these days don’t take nearly that much care, but you still need to treat them decently-keep them clean; don’t drop them. Here are some other common-sense things I do regularly with my tools so that they’ll continue to give me their best work. Clean Contacts for Motors Most small power tools have two "brushes," solid blocks of carbon graphite that conduct electricity to the motor’s spinning armature. Friction gradually wears these brushes away, and if they’re not replaced, the motor loses power and eventually quits. You can tell it’s time for new brushes when you see lots of arcing-small, harmless sparks inside the motor housing as the Makita power tool battery is running.

Using the motor from a cordless drill you can build a battery charger or an AC power source. By turning the motor in reverse, electricity is created rather than used. Set up the motor with a rotary crank handle, windmill blades, a water wheel or any method to get it spinning and you have a free renewable source of green Firestorm power tool battery. Remove the motor from the drill using a screwdriver. Connect the DC motor to your planned energy source for turning the axle, such as a water wheel, windmill blades, a hand crank or a stationary bike. How you choose to turn the motor will greatly affect where you build your generator and the length and gauge of wiring you will need. Wire the DC motor to a charge controller using a soldering iron or bolt system. A 45 amp charge controller will work the best. Set the charge controller to turn the electrical current on and off when the battery charge drops below or reaches a certain voltage level — 11.7 volts and 14.3 volts work best for these levels.

drill batteries Power Tool Battery Rebuilding Posted By: Drillbattery couk Cordless power tools are a great convenience for both the professional and the do-it-yourself homeowner. Unfortunately, the rechargeable Hitachi power tool battery packs that power these tools usually fail within 18 to 24 months. What many tool owners do not know is that within these battery packs is a simple arrangement of rechargeable size C batteries, which they can rebuild themselves. Open the battery pack. This is very simply done if the pack has screws that hold the case together. If the pack is a solid, one-piece molded unit, you will need to cut it open. Attach a chisel tip to the soldering iron, and heat it up. Use the tip to cut an outline along the top of the base of the battery pack. Pull off the top and set it aside. Inside will be a group of C-size rechargeable batteries in a generic cardboard casing. Read the text on them, which will indicate whether the cells are Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cad) or Nickel Metal-Hydride (Ni-Mh). Make sure that you purchase the same type of rechargeable battery cells unless you are sure that your charger and tool will operate with the other type.

Battery Rebuilding What Are The Dangers Of Overcharging Nimh Batteries Posted By: Toolbatter A nickel-metal hydride cell battery, abbreviated NiMH, is a common type of rechargeable battery found in consumer electronics. NiMH batteries have two to three times the charge capacity of nickel-cadmium batteries (or NiCd) and are inexpensive compared to lithium-ion cell batteries, making them a popular and cost-effective choice for consumer products that require a rechargeable Panasonic power tool battery. However, care should be taken when charging them, as overcharging can damage the battery cells or create potential hazards. Depleted Battery Capacity After a NiMH battery cell begins to overcharge, the increased energy feeding into the battery will reverse the voltage polarity of the electrodes inside the battery and cause a slight decrease in the battery’s voltage. Over time, this effect of overcharging can become more and more noticeable until the power tool battery for Hitachi no longer has enough voltage to power a device. Possible Explosion or Cell Rupture Overcharging older NiMH batteries can also cause hydrogen to build up inside the cells. When that happens, increased pressure can cause the battery cells to rupture, rendering the battery unusable. In some cases, the build-up of hydrogen can also pose the risk of explosion.

Overcharging battery How To Refurbish An 18v Dewalt Battery Posted By: Drill Battery comau An 18-volt Dewalt battery is made up of 12 size C rechargeable battery cells linked in a series. Each of these cells is linked together in a chain of batteries to provide a total of 18 volts of power. The 18V Dewalt battery can die if even one out of the 12 rechargeable battery cells dies. Refurbish your 18V Dewalt battery by making repairs to the dead C battery cells within the battery pack. Open the Dewalt DCB204 battery pack with a screwdriver, placing the screws aside for later reassembly. Older Dewalt models may have sealed battery cases. In this situation, use the chisel tip on the soldering iron to cut open the top of the battery pack. Remove the batteries from the casing, keeping them in the same formation as they were in the Dewalt case. Copy the pattern of how the battery cells are linked together. This will allow for much easier reassembly. Note which cells are linked positively and negatively together. Use the battery tester to determine which cells within the battery pack have gone bad. A reading of 1.5V means the cell is still good; a 0.
18V Dewalt Battery How To Fix A Bad Nimh Power Tool Battery Posted By: Drill Batteries com NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries provide a type of rechargeable battery cell commonly used in AEG power tool battery packs. Many times when your battery pack no longer holds a charge, it is not the entire set of cells in a battery pack, but one or two dead batteries. While it is possible to replace a few individual battery cells in your NiMH battery pack, it requires that you dismantle the battery pack, and will void your power tool’s service warranty. Press on the release clips on each side of the battery pack to remove it from your power tool or battery charger. Determine how the battery pack’s casing is held together. Remove any screws fastening the battery pack’s casing together. If necessary, pry apart the casing with a flat-head screwdriver. In some cases, you may have to cut through the casing’s plastic with a soldering iron. Attach a chisel-tip soldering iron into your soldering gun. Heat up the gun for a few minutes, and run the tip along the small crease in the battery pack’s casing. Remove the top section of the battery pack’s casing.

NiMH batteries Troubleshoot Cordless Power Tool Battery Chargers Posted By: Drill Battery comau Battery chargers reduce 110 volts to the voltage necessary to charge your power tool, usually between 9 and 24 volts. A battery charger contains separate internal wire windings, but no moving Paslode power tool battery. It’s simply the electricity flowing through the windings that causes resistance and reduces the voltage. Battery chargers don’t contain any internal user-serviceable parts and they rarely go wrong. If you find your battery charger doesn’t charge your cordless power tool, try troubleshooting the fuses; they are likely to be the cause of the problem. Plug in your cordless power tool battery charger to the electricity supply. See if the power light is on. If it is, you know electricity is getting to the charger, so it’s not the fuse in the plug that is the problem. It’s likely to be the fuse in the charger. If the power light isn’t on, remove the plug from the socket. Remove the cover from the plug so you can access the fuse. Use a screwdriver to remove the screw holding the cover in place, then lift off the cover. Pry out the fuse from the fuse holder using your fingers or a small screwdriver.

Cordless Power Tool Battery Chargers Makita Battery Care For Cordless Tools Posted By: Drill Battery comau Ambient AND battery temperature should be closely monitored by the user, if Makita BL1830 batteries are too hot or too cold they will not take a full charge. If the user attempts to charge batteries outside the recommended 5° – 40° range a shortened battery life and greatly reduced runtime could be experienced. Most new chargers will not charge the battery until it reaches acceptable temperatures. Some new chargers like the Hitachi UC18YRL actually have a built in cooling fan which will allow cool air to flow through the batteries during the charging process, this will provide a constant temperature to the battery therefore ensuring longevity is maintained at an optimum level. It is considered best practice not to leave your batteries in direct hot sunlight or to leave your batteries in small thin toolboxes in extreme cold, in both instances the sheer extremities faced by the batteries can cause permanent damage. All suppliers also consider it good practice to let your cordless tool batteries sit for 2 hours after use before attempting to recharge them.

makita batteries How To Keep Your Car Battery Like New Posted By: Drill Battery comau You slide under the wheel of the car one frosty winter morning, turn the key in the lock, and start to push down the accelerator to race the engine a little. Only the engine doesn’t race; in fact it doesn’t even walk. "Oh, no, stuck with a dead power tool battery!" you groan. This won’t happen to you if you consider the car’s electrical system merely an extension of the house’s power system, and give it the same type of attention and preventive maintenance. Why does a car battery hold up perfectly well during the summer and poop out in the winter, just when you need it most? This can happen for two different reasons. 1) the oil in the crank case is stiffer in cold weather than in warm, and the starting motor has a harder job ploughing through it. 2) The output or effectiveness of a storage battery falls off markedly as the temperature drops. In other words, when the engine needs the most starting energy, the battery is least capable of providing it!
Car Battery Battery Charging Instructions For Extending Battery Life Posted By: Drillbattery couk Rechargeable batteries should be cycled – fully charged and then fully discharged – two to four times initially to allow them to reach their full capacity. (Note: it is normal for a Panasonic power tool battery to become warm to the touch during charging and discharging). New batteries are hard for the device to charge; they have never been fully charged and are therefore "unformed". Sometimes the device’s charger will stop charging a new battery before it is fully charged. If this happens, remove the battery from the device and then reinsert it. The charge cycle should begin again. This may happen several times during the first battery charge. Don’t worry; it’s perfectly normal. How Can I Maximize Battery Performance? There are several steps you can take to insure that you get maximum performance from the battery: Break In New Batteries New batteries come in a discharged condition and must be fully charged before use. It is recommended that you fully charge and discharge the new battery two to four times to allow it to reach its maximum rated capacity.

Extending Battery Life How To Use A Cord And Cordless Drill Posted By: Toolbatter Drills come in a few different styles. The most common we see are cord and cordless. Cord drills have a power cable and need to be plugged into a electrical source. Cordless uses a Panasonic power tool battery. If the battery is discharged, place it into the chargers charging receptacle. For a cordless drill, insert the charged battery (most will only fit in one way) open the chuck if it is keyless just spin the chuck in the desired direction for opening or closing the chuck. The Chuck is the part of the drill that holds your bit. It needs to be tight so that the bit will not spin in the chuck causing damage to the bit or the chuck. Once the chuck is open insert your bit that is required for the job (either drill bit for holes, view sizes as needed located on drill bit or on the package, or the proper screw driver bit that matches the head of the screw you are working with) Close the chuck tight and depress the trigger on the drill. Check that the bit spins and does not wobble and that the drill is charged.

Cordless Drill care Recondition A Nicad Battery Posted By: Drillbattery couk Nickel-cadmium (NiCad) rechargeable Craftsman power tool batteries build up a dendrite crystal substance with continual use and recharging. Over time, they hold less of a charge and their battery life noticeably decreases. Eventually, they no longer hold a charge at all. However, you can restore the battery life (also known as battery charge memory) by removing the dendrite crystals with an electric current. Test the battery with a multimeter to be sure it is completely charged. You will need to connect the clamps on the charger to the terminals on the battery. Be sure you have charged it to its full capacity before testing it with the charger. If the battery has no life left, it will not work after a full night of charging. Put on safety goggles, a long-sleeved shirt and gloves. Connect the black clamp from the trickle charger to the negative terminal on the battery. Connect the red clamp from the trickle charger to the positive terminal on the battery. Hold the clamps to the battery for one to three seconds only. Use the multimeter to test the battery charge. If the battery is not fully charged, repeat the process to remove more dendrite crystals.

NiCAD Battery The Difference Between Nimh Batteries & Nicd Batteries Posted By: Drill Battery comau The conveniences of modern technology and the digital information age are all around. Digital cameras, cell phones, laptops, MP3 players and PDA devices are just a small selection of devices that you can carry with you to keep connected to the rest of the digital world. All these devices need power in order to run. NiMH and NiCd are two types of rechargeable batteries that you can find in many portable devices. NiCd stands for "nickel cadmium," which first appeared in the early 1900s. Up until the early 2000s, NiCd AEG power tool batteries have dominated the rechargeable battery market, having higher capacity and life than lead or alkaline rechargeable batteries. NiMH is a relatively new technology and stands for "nickel metal hydride." NiMH was invented in 1989 from research involving nickel-hydrogen batteries, which are used on satellites. As the cost of producing NiMH batteries has decreased, they have quickly overtaken NiCd batteries in popularity. When it comes to the amount of energy that is able to be stored in the battery, NiMH has the clear advantage over NiCd batteries. NiMH is able to store more than twice the amount of energy as NiCd batteries.


NiMH Batteries Can Lithium Rechargeable Batteries Be Charged With Nicad Batteries? Posted By: Toolbatter Using rechargeable batteries is a good way to reduce the waste dumped into landfills, because one rechargeable Hitachi cordless drill battery can replace dozens of single-use batteries. However, there is a wide variety of battery and battery charger technology available. With the alphabet soup of NiCad, NiMH, and Li-ion batteries available, it can be confusing to know the best options available. Luckily it is not difficult to learn the basics. Batteries function by storing electrons in a chemical compound consisting of metal and other elements. When the terminals of a battery are connected to an electrical circuit, a chemical reaction begins that unloads the electrons from the negative terminal of the battery to the positive terminal of the battery, via the circuit. When the excess electrons in the material are exhausted, the battery is dead. Stable metal compounds allow electrons to be reinserted once the AEG power tool battery is dead, so that it can be used again. The various types of batteries have different attributes, based on the type of chemicals used in them. Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries and Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) batteries are the most common rechargeable types.

Lithium Rechargeable Batteries How To Rebuild A Nicad 18-volt Tool Battery Posted By: Toolbatter Battery pack manufacturers are moving away from using nickel cadmium (NiCad) cells and replacing them using lithium ion (Li-ion) cells. NiCad cells produce 1.2 volts while Li-ion cells produce 3.6 volts, so you only need one Li-ion cell for every three NiCad cells, making battery packs smaller and lighter. NiCad 18 volt Ryobi power tool battery packs contain 15 cells while a new 18 volt Li-ion battery pack only has five cells. However, you can’t generally replace a NiCad battery for a Li-ion battery pack: you have to buy new equipment. You can buy replacement 18 volt NiCad battery packs, but a less-expensive option is to rebuild it. Remove the cover from the 18 volt NiCad battery pack, if it has screws. If you find the battery pack is a sealed unit don’t attempt to break it open as you are likely to damage the casing, making it dangerous. Covers using screws are usually small Phillips screws so use a Phillips screwdriver to remove them. Look out for screws hidden under the battery label. Lift off the battery pack cover.

NiCad battery How To Fix An 18v Ridgid Drill Battery Posted By: Drill Batteries com The Ridgid Tool Co., founded in 1923, produces professional tools, including power drills, many powered by 18-volt lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery packs. Li-ion battery packs have gradually replaced nickel-based battery packs because Li-ion is more powerful, weighs about 40 percent less and holds a charge longer. If you find your Ridgid 18-volt battery pack begins to lose its charge quickly, or you notice a lack of power, it can be caused by shorting in one or more of the Li-ion cells in the Makita power tool battery pack. Try fixing the drill battery before buying a new one. Remove the cover from the 18-volt Ridgid drill battery. You will find it’s held in place by up to eight Phillips screws, depending on the type of drill battery. Remove the screws using a suitably sized Phillips screwdriver, then gently lift the cover. You can’t completely remove the cover because there are wires from the battery cell connected to the terminals on the battery cover. You can see the Li-ion cells inside the battery case once you have put the cover to one side. Lift the complete 18-volt Ridgid cell pack from the case of Dewalt cordless drill battery.

18V Drill Batteries How To Rebuild A 14.4v Nicad Battery Pack Posted By: Drillbattery couk If you find your current NiCad battery pack isn’t keeping its charge long after you’ve recharged it, don’t dispose of it. Rebuilding a 14.4-volt nickel cadmium (NiCad) battery pack yourself is less expensive than buying a replacement pack. The task can be completed in an hour or two, using only a few tools. Once the pack is rebuilt, you will have a feeling of achievement not obtainable when you hand over money for a replacement battery pack in a store. Remove the cover from your 14.4-volt NiCad MAKITA 193158-3 battery pack. Use a small screwdriver to unscrew the screws, but keep them safe, as they are small and easy to lose. Put a hand on either side of the cover and lift it off. Put it to one side. If the battery is a sealed unit, don’t attempt to force open the cover. It could be dangerous, and it’s unlikely you’ll be able to refit the cover. Check the type of NiCad cells in the battery pack. The size and type are labeled on the battery cell. However, to ensure you get exact replacements, take the complete pack to the electrical store.
