Battery Charger is hot

Recommended Posts

I am new to dewalt so advice would be helpful. I just bought a dewalt drill kit with a dcb115 charger and 4ah batteries. When i charge a battery the charger gets very hot to touch. I can pick it up like a hot cup of coffee. It does not burn but is this normal?

This is normal when you charge high capacity batteries as from memory this doesn't have a cooling fan. I had the same issues with my old Milwaukee charger and the 9 & 12ah batteries. Even with the new charger it gets hot. I use the DeWalt fast chargers only now and have no issues. The Milwaukee and DeWalt would get so hot the batteries would stop charging and I worried something would catch fire one day 🙈
