A simple troubleshooting method to fix your cordless drill power pack without spending money. Common Issue with packs.
This fix will work on many other power tools that use a battery. Store in dry areas. Thanks for all your support!
This is what happens when you run your AC powered appliance connected to a 12v power inverter with a deep cycle marine battery and battery charger connected. This is what I would do if I thought the power was going to go off. This is a true UPS setup. The light you see is a 500 watt halogen load. The inverter is a Harbor Freight 750 watt. The battery is a deep cycle marine.
In this video, I reveal the sheer horror that resides inside one of these CTEK chargers, and I track down and remedy an issue that causes the charger to be unresponsive to the mode switch. When done, it does a good job of charging batteries at 4 or 0,65 A, but I’m not sure if one should rely too heavily on one of these.

In this video, i introduce you to the newest 12v AGM “intelliCharger” from XS Power. i have been running XS Power Intellichargers for years with great success, but this one is the newest model. I needed one for the Tahoe since i dont drive it as much now that i have the new Lexus ISF. Basically, its always good to keep fresh batteries so when you are ready to roll, you are good to go. You never want to charge dead batteries with your alternators. That is the best way to burn one up. Anyway, i needed another one so i got this one. It is 1/8th the size (or smaller) then the older models which is nice. I run 10 XS Power D3100 Batteries and this little guy should have NO PROBLEM keeping them full and happy. After being brought up to 14.5v slowly, it slowly cycles the battery back to around 13.2v which it will stay at forever, or until you turn it off.
