Capt. John on the boat next to me has been using a cordless Milwaukee right angle for quite some time. Recently he had some difficulty trying to charge his batteries for it. The charger is polarity sensitive and if you allow your batteries to run completely down to 0 vdc the charger will not charge. The way you can overcome this is to jump start the battery with another battery and voila the charger will now recognize your batt.

Fair Winds,
