  1. Hello Everyone! I have just purchased some old Makita tools. I would love to use them but I have no battery or charger and I am not sure what kind I need. I have attached a photo with my power tools and with a battery. I also have a photo with a charge but I don't actually have the charger and I don't know how or where to look for it. Please help!
  2. I was at my local flea market and found some Dewalt batteries 20 v all different 3,4,5,6 AH with dewalt branding on them that look 100% legit at less than half of retail price. Are there fake batteries that look exactly like the real deal out there? Any experience with flea market dewalt tools?
  3. Hello all. I have been a long time dewalt user but have seen a few tools from Ryobi that I wanted to add to my arsenal. Not wanting to buy a bunch of new batteries I set out to build an adapter to use Dewalt 20v Batteries on Ryobi tools, WHILE preserving the protection for dewalt batteries from over discharge. Here's my solution:
  4. This was the conversation I had with Ryobi when I was informing them about why I was frustrated with my batteries that won't work anymore. Guess I'll be looking at Ridgid from now on. Comments 2014-04-21T23:59:23-04:00 I would like to say that I am extremely disappointed in the One plus Li-Ion batteries that I have. I was given them as a gift since I owned a set of Ryobi One plus tools. In less than a year and a half 2 batteries are dead. My charger blinks red then green pretending to charge them then stays lit on green. When I grab the batteries (either one) none of them work. I have always been impressed with Ryobi and had been a faithful customer up until this point. I work around a lot of tools and not having a battery that works is the most frustrating thing to happen. 2014-04-22T00:01:16-04:00 I must add, that I hope someone from your R&D group should look online and see how many people have turned away from Ryobi due to the battery issues. 2014-04-22T09:01:54-04:00GERRY There are no issues with the batteries. If maintained properly they will not have any trouble. store between 50-100 degrees charge the batteries every 4-6 weeks to maintain the cell life remove from the charger once they are fully charged. let the battery cool after each use before you charge. To obtain warranty coverage/service or repairs if you are located within the Continental U.S., you may return the complete product to The Home Depot store nearest you. The Special Services Desk Representative can help you with repair process and procedures for your product. You also have the option of taking your complete product to your nearest Authorized Ryobi Service Center for service or repair. If you are located outside the Continental U.S., you will need to take or send your product in to your nearest Authorized Ryobi Service Center for repair. Your closest Authorized Ryobi Service Center can be determined from the service center locator through the URL link below, by searching based on your mailing zip code. If you should need further assistance in locating a service center, please contact the Ryobi customer service phone staff at 1-800-525-2579. If the purchase receipt is no longer available to verify warranty coverage, the products serial number can be used to determine the products warranty status. http://www.ryobitools.com/support/service_center_locators With accessories like extra batteries and chargers, you must provide the Home Depot receipt to the warranty service provider, along with a tool for testing. If you purchased factory reconditioned power tools, they carry a one year warranty only, with the receipt.

I know how to use my tools as well as the accessories that go with them. As I mentioned, I cannot believe that Ryobi has not addressed the discontent that a lot of people have who own your tools. Your response is very condascending and I would guess that people will feel the same when they read about it after I post it. Thank you for the tips I, just like most every Ryobi owner already knows.
  5. Hi can anyone in the UK tell me if DeWalt's 24 volt range of batteries are compatable with Black & Deckers 24 volt Firestorm range of powertools ? From speaking to my local Stanley Black & Decker service center they tell me that Black & Decker have discontinued production of the 24 volt line of batteries. I have 6 tools which are 24 volt rated so it would be expensive to move over to a different tool brand and replace them all. Any help over my problem would be much appreciated.
  6. So I was wondering because the Stanley Black and Decker company owns: -Dewalt -Black and Decker -Porter Cable -Mac tools And all these brands have a 20 volt max lithium ion cordless line does that mean that they are interchangeable. I'm just wondering if you could say: -Go buy a Black and Decker 20 volt cordless hedge trimmer and run it on Dewalt batteries. -Charge up a porter cable battery pack with a Dewalt charger Because I know that mac tools runs their new cordless line on the Dewalt 20 volt batteries as an option but can it go beyond that.
  7. Hi My name is Andrew McGonigal. I am a product design engineer and I am hoping to develop a range of power tools that will allow each tool to be powered from the same singular power source as well as allowing the users to switch between tools easily and quickly. I The questionnaire below should take no longer than five minutes and would be incredibly useful to my research. If you can spare the time it would be greatly appreciated?

  8. I have been in the power tool repair business for 50+ years. I recently replaced the batteries on 2 of my Hitachi 14.4v. drills with 1.5Ah #BCL1415 batteries. Since Panasonic came out with the battery drills many years ago, I have used cheap, good and great batteries. These batteries are an embarassment to Hitachi. They are even worse than the NiCads they replaced. Worse batteries I have ever seen.
