Some basic and key details when inspecting your Black and Decker 20V lithium battery charger instructions are as follows:
- Never overcharge any given battery, or overcharge. Check to see the rate of charge your battery is receiving, once the light (on the battery) flashes green, it’s good to go and can be removed from the charger.
- Never allow an object of any kind to sit on top of the charger or allow the charger to be placed in an area that can cause ventilation issues. These issues can compound and destroy the integrity and charging capability of the charger.
Now that you know the basics, in order to hook a battery up to a charger, it is as simple as taking a Black and Decker battery, and hooking it up to the charger. You will know that the battery is properly charging if it is flashing a key color (red for no charge/low battery, green for full charge).
Allow your battery to charge and then promptly take the battery off the charger once it has been recharged.
How long does it take to charge a 20v lithium battery Black and Decker?
Black and Decker Lithium batteries come in a variety of voltages, the most common being 12v and 20v. With each voltage the question is how long does it take for them to charge, and how long does that charge last?
How long does it take to charge a 20v lithium Black and Decker battery can be answered in two ways; it depends on its current charge, and what you will need to use it for.
The usual charge of a fully dead lithium BnD battery is around 45 minutes (on a fast charger) to around 3-4 hours on a normal charger. After it has been charged, the next thing to wonder is how long will it last for?
If you are using the battery nonstop, off the charger and straight into the tool, then you can expect anywhere at a minimum to get two hours of work done and a maximum of eight. The average life cycle of a Black and Decker 20v Lithium battery is around 300-500 charging cycles, so at a minimum you are getting around 600 hours of use and at a maximum around 1000 to 1150.
How do I know when my Black and Decker lithium battery is fully charged?
You will know when your Black and Decker lithium battery is fully charged when it is blinking Green or has a solid green hue. The green color means it is ready to be put into your power tool and ready for use. On average you can expect around a couple of hours of work time with the tool before the battery will need to be replaced and put back on the charger.
If the battery is blinking Red, that means it is time to put the battery on a charger and allow it to refill. On average this can take around 3-4 hours unless you have a supercharge charger, then you’re able to halt your waiting period to around 45 minutes to an hour.
Another way to know if your battery is fully charged yet the battery doesn’t seem to be showing green, is to test it. Simply put it into your tool of choice and try the tool. If the tool is working at a normal capacity even without the green light on the battery showing, you are good to go.
