    7/08/2016 I HAVE HAD THIS KIT SINCE, 7/12/2015, BUT I HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO USE IT, DUE TO BAD HEALTH... I BOUGHT IT SO MY BROTHER WOULD HAVE THE TOOLS TO MAKE SOME REPAIRS FOR ME... BUT THEN HE GOT SICK AND COULD NOT MAKE IT UP TO OCALA,FL WHERE I LIVE... HE LIVES IN LEHIGH ACRES,FL.
    SO, I INSTALLED THE BATTERIES IN THE FLASHLIGHT AND THE DRILL FOR STORAGE... I JUST CHECKED THE BATTERY CHARGE IN THE FLASHLIGHT AND IT WAS DOWN BY ONE LIGHT... SO I DECIDED TO TOP OFF BOTH BATTERIES RIGHT NOW... AFTER USING THE FLASH LIGHT FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES, IT WENT DEAD. I SWITCHED BATTERIES AND DRAINED THAT BATTERY. I TRIED CHARGING BOTH BATTERIES AND THEY WOULD ONLY CHARGE UP TO ONE LIGHT.
    NO LUCK AT ALL, I THINK I HAVE A BAD CHARGER, BECAUSE BOTH BATTERIES WILL NOT CHARGE.
    9-10-2016 I JUST WENT ONLINE TO HOME DEPOT, TO FIND OUT IF OTHER PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM.
    TODAY, 9-11-2016, I CHECKED THE OUTPUT VOLTAGE FROM THE CHARGER WITH MY DIGITAL MULTI TESTER. AND IT WAS AROUND 5.5 VOLTS DC.
    9-12-2016 10:00 AM I JUST RETURNED FROM HOME DEPOT. WITH THE HELP FROM A LADY NAMED KAY, WE FOUND OUT THAT MY CHARGER WAS PROBABLLY OKAY, BECAUSE WE TRIED IT WITH AN 18 VOLT LITHIUM BATTERY THAT THEY HAD THERE AND IT WAS CHARGING IT OK: BOTH RED ON AND GREEN FLASHING.. APPARENTLY, BOTH MY BATTERIES WERE BAD FROM DAY ONE. SHE WAS VERY PLEASANT TO WORK WITH. SHE REPLACED MY BATTERIES WITH TWO NEW ONES. I'M HOME NOW AND CHARGING THE FIRST ONE.
    I GUESS THIS, 18-VOLT DUAL - CHEMISTRY CHARGER, compatible with any 18-Volt ONE+ battery (NiCd or lithium-ion) , WILL NOT OUTPUT 18 VOLTS DC, IF THE BATTERY IS BAD. BOTH BATTERIES TOOK ABOUT 20 MINUTES EACH TO GET TO FULL CHARGE. NOW I WILL LEAVE THE FLASHLIGHT ON FOR AWHILE AND SEE IF I CAN CHARGE THEM BACK UP AGAIN.
    I RAN THE FLASH LIGHT FOR 30 MINUTES, WITH EACH BATTERY, AND THEY BOTH CHARGED UP OKAY. I AM HAPPY NOW...
    I ALSO CHECKED RE-CHARGING BATTERIES ON U TUBE, AND FOUND THAT BATT'S WILL NOT CHARGE, IF THEY ARE UNDER 12 VOLTS.

The Ryobi charger will flash green as it charges and then remain steady or slowly flashing green when fully charged. Flashing red means testing and if it remains steady or slowly flashing red it is defective.

SOURCE: both green and yellow light stay on and batteries

If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.

SOURCE: Very little juice in freshly charged batteries

have you tried the batterys in any other tool?

you would also need to check the voltage of the batterys they should be at least 18 volts (19 prefered)

then if the batterys do not show charged you would need to make sure the battery charger is putting out voltage.

After that contact your closest Ryobi service center we would check that for free to let you know what you need, I am sure you local place would do the same.

SOURCE: yellow / green light will not go off when charging

Its likely the batteries will take at least several hours to fully charge, if not more. NiCad batteries are slow charging and usually need 4-6 hours for a full charge. Keep them on longer or even overnight but make sure you remove them in the morning. You will probably find the light turns green after 4-6 hours of charging. If lights stay yellow and green after 12 hours of charging, it may indicate a fault in the battery itself where it will not accept a charge.

I use the Ryobi Li-Ion tools the L-I batteries will cut off when they get to a low charge level this is to protect the batteries Li-Ion batteries life span is shortened when fullt discharged so when the tool suddenly stops put the battery on charge,also if the battery has a charge indicator light for a more accurite idea of the charge (green is charged,red discharged) hold the test button on then run the tool the light may go from green to red if it does that shows the the charge is about depleted if the light stays green you have a little run time left.

Hi,
Some of batteries drain very quickly. Depends on how they are used.
Feel free to check Your Local battery Manufacturer for best prices for all different batteries. You name it and they have it or they can custom make a battery for you.

Is the green light supposed to flash while charging lithium batteries> just got the p113 charger but no instructions in the dang box


I have used alot of battery type drills and other action tools . Ryobi is on the lower end of the market as opposed to Milwaulkee and Dewalt . But my experience with battery operated tool charging equipment is that if the light is green and it's blinking , I would say it's charging . When the light goes off or stays on . I would say it's charged . Leaving the battery or batteries in the charging unit for 24 hours will not hurt the battery . My solution here is put it in the charger , and check it 12 hours later !

Hi i have a litnium mkita 18v lxt cordless drill i have 2 batties and all 3 lights are staying on it wont charge its the simbal with the spaner and fan on it that comes up can you please tell me whats rong


HI, Its ok for the charger to have those lights on. If you have been using for quite some time or the batteries have had several charges then the charger will operate a service on the batteries to keep them in good condition. We have had a few take as long as an hour to service , then it goes into normal charge mode. Just leave it on to do its service and it should be fine. If there was a problem then the red and green lights would alternate flash and a siren beep would sound. Hope this was of help to you.

This is not right. They should last much longer then that. I have one of the more expensive 18V lithium batteries (the one with the button on it that tells you if it needs charging or not) and I can use mine almost all day before it needs to be recharged. I do construction work and I use my Ryobi products almost all day. Either both batteries are bad (I don't believe that is the case) or the charger is not charging them all the way to a full charge. With this charger, you do need to make sure that you remove the batteries as soon as the green light comes on. It is not good on these batteries to stay charging after they are fully charged. You also should not leave the charger plugged in without any batteries charging.Please tell me more about the charger. When you plug in the charger, does the red light come on? When you plug in a battery, does the red light stay bright and the green light blink? Does the red light go off and the green light stay on bright when you remove it from the charger?
If the charger is not working correctly, then return it for a new one.

The battery will power your equipment for 30 to 45 minutes, that is normal. What you're thinking of is the lifespan of a lithium battery. It with your battery will last 10 times longer than a regular NiCad battery. So you will be able to charge the battery and use it Hundreds of times before the Battery Life is depleted. Sounds like it's working as designed

I think your tryiong to charge NIMH batteries oon a charger designed for Lithium Ion batteries. With all the new style batteries such as NICAD, NIMH and LI-ION, charging becomes difficult. Most chargers pre NIMH and LI-ion, were designed for NICAD's. The best advise, match your batteries with the correct charger
