NOTE about these 1-hour chargers;

I have had many people email me recently about this;  There are some suppliers out there SAYING that they are selling the OBSOLETE slightly faster charger model 92991 (part 2607224473) pictured on the right, BUT THEY ARE NOT! Sure, the price seems good, until you discover that you will get the same one that I sell on this auction, for less bread.  And you will get it quicker from me also!  Just ask the seller what the part number is ON THE CHARGER!  They will tell you it is CHG02, and that the packaging shows 92991 (which is an error by Skil and a call to them will confirm this).  But I DO have the REAL 92991 on a different auction, if you really want one.

From these suppliers, you get the smaller version on the left (CHG02) due to a packaging or part numbering error on the part of Skil!  The larger one is more expensive and has the benefit of a slightly shorter charge time (1.0 hour for the larger 92991 versus 1.2 hours for the smaller CHG02 that I sell).

Get $15 or $7 back if you send me your defective 92990 3-hour charger!

If you have a Skil 18-volt 3-hour charger model 92990 (part number 2610995852 or 2610 995 852 ), with a RED LED and you send it to me, you will get $15 back.  If you have a Skil 18-volt 3-hour charger model 92990 (part number 2607224633, 2607 224 633), with a GREEN LED and you send it to me, you will get $7 back.   If you want to send me your old charger with a payment, then you can take the credit off your payment!!  Just email me by clicking on the "Ask seller a question" link in the upper right hand corner of this auction page, and I can set up a BUY-IT-NOW auction for you at the reduced cost.

Add a battery and take 50% OFF the Battery Shipping;

If your battery was defective, and it burned out your 3-hour charger, now is the time to buy a new charger. Take 50% off all the shipping listed for the battery. If I don't have any battery auctions up on eBay, email me by clicking on the link called "Ask seller a question" and I can put one up as a buy-it-now for you!


I have a 98.5% feedback rating. That comes from 15,400+ total positive feedbacks.


NEW SKIL CHG02 charger, for 7.2 to 18 volt Skil Batteries (96BAT, 120BAT/92993, 144BAT/92994 and 180BAT/ 92995). It has an output of 1.0 amp and it is the charger shown on the LEFT in the picture (the smaller one). The one shown on the right is the 92991 (it charges 7.2 to 24 volt batteries at 1.2 amps).  This is one of the optional one-hour chargers which can be used in place of the following 3-hour chargers;  92370 9.6-volt, 92490 12-volt, 92590 14.4-volt, 92990 18-volt and SC7218 7.2- to 18-volt multi-volt chargers and the 1214PP and 1214PK corded back up charging system. Works with drill models 2365, 2368, 2465, 2466, 2467, 2468, 2485, 2565, 2566, 2567, 2567, 2568, 2585, 2592, 2865, 2866, 2867, 2868 and 2882. Works with saw models 2575, 4567 and 2892. Works with flashlights 2490 and 2590, and with inflators/compressor models 2320 and 2420.

The 92991 will fully charge a battery in approximately 1.0 hours. The CHG02 will fully charge a battery in approximately 1.2 hours. This is due to the different amperage rates of the two chargers (mentioned in the above paragraph).

Both chargers are SMART charger, which means they do things intelligently, when it comes to charging a Ni-Cad battery (see below for details).

When first plugged in and with no battery plugged into it, there is a solid green LED lit. This lets you know that it is on, and is functional. Then, when you plug a battery into it, the LED flashes, letting you know it is charging. If it doesn't flash, then your battery is defective and it knows that, so it won't attempt to charge it. Or, the battery may be very hot from being in the sun, or from being used heavily. It will not charge a very hot battery, as it knows that this is not good for it. It will charge the battery once it cools down for a little while.

After approximately 1 hour of charging, the LED will stop flashing. This lets you know the battery is charged. At that time, it automatically stops charging at the full current rate, unlike the inexpensive 3-hour chargers which continue to charge at the full rate as long as the battery is connected to it. If the full charging current is sent through a fully charged battery, all it does is heat up the battery. Heat is NOT a friend to Ni-Cad batteries. It shortens the life of the battery considerably, especially if the battery is continually charged with full charging current even though it is fully charged. If you read the Skil manuals supplied with all their products (and other manufacturers, for that matter), they will tell you to disconnect the battery from the charger after the 3 to 5 hour charge time.

But this charger does one better! It reverts to a trickle charge, just like expensive car battery chargers do. This "trickle charge" is only a fraction of the current is runs through a battery that is NOT yet fully charged. Actually, after one hour, a battery is only charged about 90 to 95%. This trickle charge "tops the battery off", if you will. You may leave a battery plugged into a SMART charger like this for more than an hour, and not worry about dramatically reducing its life. It is still best to remove a charged battery from the charger, of course.

All that being said, if you have the extra bread to spend, and want to get the most life from your expensive Ni-Cad batteries, THIS is the charger for you. The CHG02 was virtually the same, but made cheaper, as it is made to charge in 1.2 hours as oppossed to 1.0 hour for the 92991.  I don't believe Skil ever made any 24 volt products, but they were probably looking to the future with that charger.

Manufacturers List Price = $58.99;

If you don't want to buy a charger and/or battery from me, do yourself a favor and just ask the supplier to tell you what the model number is that is ON THE CHARGER LABEL!!! If they won't, you can be SURE they are going to ship you a CHG02 in packaging that states it is a model 92991!!! And even if they DO say it says it is a 92991, but they send you a CHG02, YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR SHIPPING IT BACK TO THEM TO GET A REFUND!!!  And I advised Skil of their mistake, and they said they will look into it, but that could take months before they fix their packaging or their part numbering mistake! Just thought I should make you aware of this issue, so you don’t almost get burned like I did!


Shipping for this item is listed at the very bottom of this auction, in the eBay section entitled “Shipping, payment details and return policy”, unless you are remote* (read below to see if you are considered by FedEx to be "remote"). It will usually be shipped via FedEx Air 2-Day Service or US Postal Service 2-3 day priority mail with tracking number emailed to you.

Wisconsin shipments;

I must charge STATE sales tax of 5.6% on shipments to Wisconsin locations (or items picked up in Milwaukee). There are no additional fees to pick this item up in Milwaukee, WI other than the sales tax of 5.6%.

OVERNIGHT service is not available.

Please give me a CORRECT address!!

If FedEx or the USPS cannot locate your address (or if you aren’t available during their 3 attempts to deliver the package, you will be notified by FedEx via email and/or phone. So it is a good idea to provide me with your phone number. It is also a good idea to be sure your email address on your PayPal and eBay accounts is correct, as that is how I reach people. If FedEx cannot reach you within 5 business days, by law they must return the package to the shipper (me). But I get charged for that shipment. If this happens, I can either refund your payment (minus the original shipping fee, the return shipment delivery fee, the EBay listing fee, the ending auction fee and the PayPal fees if incurred), or you can pay for the return shipment fee to get it back to me plus the new shipment fee to ship it back to you. In both cases, I will only break even and will have made no bread on the transaction.

I ***WILL*** combine shipping!

If you want more than one piece of an item, or win more than one of my auctions, your total shipping charge will be significantly reduced. I have *NO* desire to "pad" my shipping/handling charges to make my profits higher and your total costs higher… you will pay only the approximate shipping charge that I pay. If you would like more than one of an item 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.


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 do!


I only accept PayPal, per eBay’s new rules. You can easily pay via your checking account, Mastercard or Visa 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 of your purchase. If you don’t, a non-paying bidder report will be filed with eBay, and you could have your account with eBay suspended or cancelled.  Negative feedback will also be filed.

WARNING ONE! Don't burn out your 3-hr charger, if you haven't already!!!!!!!!

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, which is from Skil/Bosch themselves! I don't want you to burn out the new charger that I send to you!


To check whether your battery is good or not, and to prevent burning out your 3-hour charger, go to my web page of ChargerPro (the ending of that website is the most COMmon internet type of site). 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"!

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 very 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.
