Get $7 Cash back if you send me your old defective 3-hour RYOBI charger;
How does this cash back process work? When I send your new charger to you, I include a self addressed label that you can just tape over the original label I put on the box I just sent to you. Put your old RYOBI 3-hour charger in the box. The charger cannot be altered, such as opening either part of the charger. If you cut the wires and left at least 2 inches of wire on each portion, that is OK. Get $3 more for each additional charger sent to me. Then do the following;
just add postage (parcel post is about $3-$4, but delivery confirmation is another $1 or so, or use Priority Mail which is $4.95 for a one pound box). You will get $7 sent back to your PayPal account once I receive it.

Bid/Buy with Confidence;
I have a 98.5% feedback rating, comprised of 17,600+ total positive feedbacks.
You don’t get a rating like that by selling things that don’t work as advertised, or by treating customers with only the utmost respect!!!!!
I have a Bachelors Degree in Business (4-year degree) and an Associates Degree in Electronics Technology (2-year degree), so I am well versed in what I discuss below. I had a 22-year career with GE Healthcare involving electronics before I started this eBay business.
Shipping is always via either USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail, or FedEx 2-3 day air, or FedEx Ground Home Delivery (either way, you get the tracking number emailed to you). It is my choice. My auctions are shipped out almost every day of the week including Saturday, unless something unusual comes up, in which case they will be shipped out the following business day. Never does it take more than one extra day for me to ship an item. The shipping listed is for the 50 United States only. For other countries or US Territories, email me for a price quote.
Overnight FedEx service is no longer available.
I must charge STATE sales tax of 5.6% on shipments to Wisconsin locations (or items picked up in Milwaukee). There are no additional shipping or handling fees to pick this item up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin other than the sales tax of 5.6%.
Please give me a CORRECT address and your phone number!!
If the Post Office cannot locate your address, the item will be returned to me. If this happens, I can either refund your auction payment (minus the original shipping fee, the return shipment delivery fee if any, the eBay listing fee, the selling auction fee and the PayPal fees if any), or I can ship it to another address if you pay another shipping fee of $4.99. So it is a good idea to provide me with your phone number in case I need to contact you. It is also a good idea to be sure your email and physical addresses on your PayPal and eBay accounts are correct and up to date.
If the FedEx cannot locate your address, and it is incorrectly given to me, then there will be a $10 fee charged to you in order to receive your package. That is what FedEx will charge me, and I just pass the charge on to you for providing me with an incorrect address. Sorry!
I ***WILL*** combine shipping!
If you would like more than one of an item on an auction, or win more than one of my auctions, just contact me by clicking on the "Ask Seller a Question" link in the upper right-hand portion of this auction page. Usually, the fee is about $1.49 more per additional pound of weight, but not always. Some auctions are special. If you wait to pay for all the items you buy at once, then the combined shipped will be automatically calculated for you when you attempt to pay for any of the items.
Canada and Mexico Shipments:
I do not usually ship to these locations, nor any other location. You can email me for a quote if you like, but the shipping fees are usually too high to make it worth your while.
All items may be returned within 7 calendar days of receiving the item. Full refund, minus shipping fees, will be given once the item is received back in the same working condition that it was sent to you in. You will be required to respond to an email from eBay saying that you returned the item (this allows me to recover my fees from eBay for your auction). All items are sold as-is. No warranty implied, since these items are electrical in nature, and lightning could strike your house with this item plugged in. I can’t be held responsible for situations like that, therefore all items are sold as-is. My feedback record should show you that I do NOT sell junk. I test all items thoroughly.
I only accept PayPal, per eBay’s new rules. But you can easily pay via your checking account, Visa or Mastercard through Paypal also. WI residents will be required to pay 5.6% State sales tax. Free Pick Up in Milwaukee, WI. Email me by clicking on the link entitled "Ask seller a question" located in the upper right-hand corner of this auction page if you want to make other arrangements. Please pay within 7 days. If you don’t, a non-paying bidder report will be filed with eBay.
I will ONLY leave feedback after feedback has been left for me. Too often I have been threatened with negative feedback after I have left positive feedback in advance. Sorry about that, but it is what ALL the savvy sellers on eBay now do!
WARNING ONE! Test your old batteries so they don't put a strain on your charger!
If you try to charge a defective battery, or an old battery with some defective (shorted) Ni-Cad cells inside, READ THE BELOW SECTION ABOUT THE BATTERY TEST. I don't want you to burn out your charger needlessly!
To check whether your battery is good or not, and to prevent burning out your 3-hour charger, go to the web page listed below. If you don’t have a voltmeter, try to find someone who does, as it is the only TRUE way to determine if you have a good battery or not. Battery packs are made up of numerous 1.2 volt Ni-Cad cells (10 of them in a 12-volt pack). And if even just one of those ten cells shorts out, it can cause your charger to burn out. Per the test below, if you try to determine whether your charger gets "warm" or not, you could make a terrible mistake and burn out your charger. Not many people can determine the difference between a "warm" transformer and one that is "hot"!
The website is ChargerPro. The ending to that website is the most COMmon website ending that is on the internet.
WARNING TWO! Beware of other battery sellers on eBay!!!!!!!!
Often, these sellers have bought batteries that have been on someone’s shelf unsold for many months or years. A NiCad battery cell has approximately an 18-month shelf life, if not recharged. If the seller is unwilling to charge the battery for you, and you want a refund, you may be stuck shipping it back to them (with you paying shipping back to them, and possibly paying the shipping for a new battery sent to you).
WARNING THREE! Beware of non-BRAND tools sold on eBay!!!!!!!!
The price may look good, but wait until the battery pack needs replacing (prematurely, as often they are made with inferior NiCad cells), or the tool needs servicing! Try to locate a dealer that sells parts or does repairs! Or find out FIRST what you have to do to get service, once you pay to ship it to them for repair! The cheap imports often use cheap materials that aren’t made to last like name-brand tools.
WARNING FOUR! Beware of “FIX YOUR BATTERY PACK” auctions on eBay!!!!!!!!
I have had numerous buyers tell me horror stories of auctions that purchased for information on how to fix their defective battery packs. 1) You can replace NiCad cells that are bad, BUT YOU CAN’T SOLDER THEM! Heat is NOT a friend to a NiCad cell… it makes their life MUCH shorter if exposed to excessive heat. They must be fusion welded, which produces virtually no heat. Fusion welders are VERY expensive! 2) Yes, there is a trick that you can apply a high voltage to a cell to “shock” it into pretending to be good again, BUT THIS IS A VERY TEMPORARY SOLUTION! The cell will very quickly revert back to its defective status in only a day or two usually.
WARNING FIVE! Be kind to your NiCad batteries, and they will last a long time!!!!!!!!
Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. For Skil, this mean you NEVER leave your battery pack charging on a 3-hour charger for more than 5 hours (5 hours is needed to charge a battery fully if it has not been charged in a while)! Those 3-hour chargers constantly charge at .25 amps, even when fully charged. All that does is heat up the cells, and remember, heat is NOT a friend of the NiCad cell (see the below section on 1-hour chargers)! It will make the life of your battery pack much shorter. If at all possible, buy a timer and set it to be on for only 3 to 5 hours. You will get much longer life out of the battery pack that way.
You can leave your battery pack on a 1-hour SMART charger for a longer period, since it reverts to a trickle charge once fully charged. But you should still remove it if possible after fully charged, to preserve the life of the battery. See the next section for information about Skil 1-hour chargers.
On Aug-17-09 at 12:05:23 PDT, seller added the following information:
This 1411141 charger ALSO replaces the old 12 volt Ryobi model 1400676 battery base which came with the 4400101 ac/dc adapter. That old 1400676 / 4400101 charger was used with battery models 1400670, 1400652 and 181918. I'm sure there are other models that it replaced as well, and I will update this auction as they become available.
