I need help with sears 19.2 volt zap the batteries when placed in charger, it stays green and won't charge any ideas? Answered

I zaped my batteries, put the battery pack in the charger but can't get it to charge, any ideas


if you shorted them, it's possible you caused an open circuit, either in the cells or the internal wiring. (there may be a fusable link inside the pack, a special wire that will melt thru if the current exceeds a certain level for too long)...Look in the Yellow Pages (or your local equivalent) for a battery house, a specialized battery dealer who may or not be able to fix them.

There either dead or you've drained them to the point where they won't charge anymore, The fact you've said you have zapped them as maybe they were not charging? Leads me to think they are dead.
