I dont have any information for you and own a few DeWalt 18 volt chargers and batteries, so today and from now on when I'm charging I'm putting the charger down on the concrete shop floor instead of up on the wooden work bench where I have previously, better safe then sorry I figure........

A few years ago I had a tool charger working on top of a wood entertainment center. The NiCAD battery failed and overheated bad enough to melt the plastic battery case. Thermal runaway I think they called it. Since that, all tool chargers sit on the metal bench or concrete floor, well away from anything that will burn.

Hello Jon. Would you happen to know how long ago that happened? And the brand/model number of the battery and the charger that melted down?

Hello John T,

I would put a timer on the thing as well.
One of those mechanical cheep ones would do just fine! Some chargers will drain the battery when not charging, another reason to limit the ON time.

MY Dewalt has a light that flashes while charging, then when it stops flashing its "supposed to be" charged at which time I remove it...I agree prob not best to leave it on indefinitely

Hello John T,

Newer chargers from Dewalt have a feature that is supposed to equalize the battery pack. Leave it on for 8 hours for that to happen. One hour charger, one hour timer, then....... lights out.

Im not a very good hand at reading directions, but I do indeed recall reading something about (on my latest charger) leaving it on every now n then a full 8 hrs and it cycles and equalizes or something, guess I may have to actually read the directions lol

Hello John T,

I'll add one more thing that NEEDS to be on a timer.......BATTERY MAINTAINERS! It is COVENIENT
to have them ON 24/7 BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT totally unnecessary!

Nice sparking with you.............Guido
