Can I use an 18volt Battery in my 14.4 drill?
HI there, the drill stopped earlier today so I put it to charge. The charger light blinked for sometime and shows steady now however when I put the battery back on the drill, it doesn't rotate. Moreover, none of the lights are glowing on the drill. If I put the battery on charger again, it blinks for a couple of minutes and then goes steady green again. Has the battery gone dead OR the drill, please help!
I have a psr14,4 Ll was working fine put the battery on charge and after charged I have no power at all,if I put battery and drill on charger and push trigger the light on drill flashes along with the 3 charge lights but nothing else can you help please?
Does the PSR 18 LI-2 use the same or a compatible battery as the original PSR 18 LI?
Are the batteries still available for this drill?
My PSR 14.4 with fully charged battery will only work if you put it on charge for a few moments, and will not work after the trigger is released, until you repeat the procedure. Any help?
Selecting torque still slips when you reach 20 and can be stopped by your hand although you can tell the difference as you go up the scale! Any ideas. Malcolm
Hi, my PSB 18Li-2.....stopped working. The batteries are good, and charged. The 3 green lights and the white light flash 3 times, then nothing. Any clues? Is it an economic fix?
PSR 14.4 LI-2: inserted a new and fully charged battery pack, pressing Run button the device only flashes white LED once.
With previous battery everythin ok.
Any idea ?
NB: measured voltage on battery pack + to -
A: contacts towards device: old 16.4V, new 16.7V
B: contacts towards charger: old 14.3V, new 13.7V
My psr 18 l1-2 will not operate with a full battery, tried the batteries in another psr. The lights on the drill come on and flash 3 times then go off. This drill has had very little use and has not been overloaded, any suggestions please?
My PSR18Li-2 burned out, when I pressed the trigger. Is there a an ability to by a 14,4 single. Otherwise I have to shift over to 18 Lo-2?
Where can I by a 14,4 single drill?
What is maximum speed of PSR 18LI-2?
What ah is the battery with the psr18li?
I have a bosch psr 14.4 all lights are flashing when I press the trigger the manual says that the overload protection is activated what does this mean?
I've just glanced at the manual and it sounds like there's an inbuilt protection against overloading the drill (ie too much torque on the motor therefore too much current required). It also says something about thermal overload protection too (ie overuse of the motor - my shredder has one which prevents it turning on after about 10 min of continuous use). It prevents the motor from burning out.
I've never experienced this so I'm not sure if this helps.
I have experienced the flashing light a number of times when: a) I am drilling larger diameter deep holes in hardwood without adequately clearing the swarth from the helix. or b) when I use a larger diameter tungsten tip drill bit in cement. Both are high load apps. If the light is flashing when the drill not under load, it is clearly faulty. I have not seen this problem yet. Sorry i can't assist you.
The bright white light on the drill itself remains on and the drill doesn't function. What do I do? it is only 18mth old and hardly used.
A battery can be virtually flat, yet the LED will still light up since it requires much less power to make the LED shine than it does to operate the drill. Make sure you've done a fresh charge on the battery. On my charger, the green LED flashes while charging and stays steady once fully charged. If you have a spare battery, do the same with it. You can get a bad battery, but if you can try two batteries, then the odds of this being the problem is probably pretty small. Otherwise the charger could be faulty. Keep an eye on when the green LED goes steady. It should take around 4-5hrs from memory.
One other thing, my drill's forward/reverse "button" has 3 settings i.e. forward, lock & reverse. The middle setting between the forward and reverse, locks the motor. I haven't tried, but while it's locked, you can probably press the trigger and the LED may even light up. Make sure that the drill is in either forward or reverse and try it again. Good luck with it.
I am looking to get one of these, for home handyman use. I would like to know the differences between the PSR18 LI & PSR18 LI-2. The price difference is around 50% more for the LI-2. I would imagine that the difference is not worth it. Ideas?
I think you'll find that the PSR18 LI-2 has a) two batteries rather than just one b) a very neat tool pouch containing: reasonable quality drill sets for wood, metal and stone; a set of nut driver sockets and some phillips head and cross hatch screwdriving bits. An extra battery really comes in handy ie: use one and recharge the dead one and vice a versa. Check out the cost of buying the L2 extras separately. I think you'll find the L2 package is OK.
Both drills come with 2 x 1.3Ah batteries, and both are shown in the ads as being with a kit. As far as i can see, the only difference is the switch on the top of the drill, and the shape at the chuck housing. The prices are AUD 139 and 199 respectively.
When does the indicator light operate on the psr 18 L1-2 battery charger? Is it supposed to be on during charge or on completion of charge.
