    DIY: Kobalt 18v drill battery charger blinks red

    I place the battery on the charger and it is green for about 10 seconds, then flashes red. I placed the same battery on my kobalt 18-20v universal battery charger and it charges to completion. Anyone have any ideas on how to service this charger……IT’S NOT THE BATTERY(s). Any ideas? Thank you.
