More about this item




PLEASE DO NOT  BID ON THISsale! 

You can buy it immediately for less (only $22.99 + 6.99 S&H) at thesale in the link below, instead of having to wait for thissale to end 78 of them have been sold by me on the belowsale as of 5/12/2011... It is a BUY-IT-NOWsale.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Coleman-Obsolete-18v-Volt-Battery-Charger-Replacement-/200582835365

If the link above does not work, then instead you can just enter thesale number   ( 200361135436 ) into the search box at the top of anysale page.  That will take you to that BUY-IT-NOWsale also.

Why so makes more money by forcing sellers to list the expensive way!  But that is business in the business world, so I understand.

The FIXED price listings are 30 dayssales and renew each 30 days, but when people go to a category in, or use the search box to find their item, these 30-day FIXED pricesales sometimes don't show up

I want ALL of the sales from thissale to be on ONEsale, not numeroussales with only a few sales on each one.  My Fixed-pricesales have MANY, MANY quantities sold on each one, so buyers can then see how many are sold and that they aren't alone on finding a good bargain. 

I hope this all makes sense to you!!   Sorry for being so wordy, but I think it needed the explanation! 

Bid/Buy with Confidence;

I have a 98.5% (or better!) feedback rating, comprised of over 14,600 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 business.

If you find an item cheaper ANYWHERE, email me with the price and web address (URL) and I can usually meet or beat it.  Just email me if you need something, or a part of something like a drill trigger switch, motor, etc.   For how to email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions.

Get $10.00 Cash Back for sending me your old charger!

If you return to me any of the Coleman battery chargers shown in the pictures on thissale, you will receive a $10 refund on your PayPal account once I receive it.  Some of the chargers did not have the Coleman name or model listed on them, but they are still eligible for the refund.  If you don’t see your charger in mysales, then it would be best if you emailed me to verify it really is a Coleman charger.  For how to email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions.  When I ship this new charger to you, you will receive a sheet with a label on it that you can cut out and paste onto you box.  This sheet also contains details on how much it will cost to ship, and how to protect the item from damage.

I require that the charger (or charger parts) is/are complete for the $10 cash back offer, and not cosmetically damaged (case cracked or taped together, etc).  Paint or scuffs and scratches are OK.  If you only have one of the TWO items that make up the slow charger, I can only give you a partial credit.  The two items are the AC adapter (wall-wart) and the battery base (part that the battery plugs into).  You can email me if you don't have a complete charger, or if you are unsure it is a Coleman charger.  You can also get the credit if you send me the 1-hour charger, which is only comprised of one part, not two.  For how to email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions.

The charger parts sent for the cash back must not be missing any electrical parts, or missing pieces of the plastic housings.   If you cut the cord, it may still be eligible for the cash back, but usually only if you left at least 3 inches of cord coming out of the ends of the devices.  I have been sent chargers where the battery portion looks as if it were run over by a car (well, OK, not quite THAT bad, but where large pieces of plastic were gone).  Those would, of course, NOT be eligible for the cash back.

The company that made the original chargers, Team Products, went out of business in 2007.  Therefore I can't buy new plastic body components (I CAN get almost any electrical or electronic component however).  So that is why I must require that the charger be COMPLETE for the full refund.  

NOTE:   If you DO NOT have an old Coleman charger to send back for the $10 credit on your PayPal account, then you just won't get the credit, and that is fine.   You just pay for thesale and ignore all information about the $10 cash back offer. 

Product Information;

Thissale is for one NEW name-brand 3-4 hour charger that will charge all the various types of Coleman 18 volt batteries with posts (as opposed to slide-in type batteries). AND this charger will not easily burn out like the original Coleman chargers did. I cosmetically and electrically alter this brand NEW name-brand charger to fit BOTH styles (and all 8 variations too) of the Coleman 18 volt batteries. This charger is a replacement for the SLOW and the FAST chargers made by Coleman.  Should you need an extra Coleman battery, contact me, as I do have some new and used batteries available for sale.  For how to email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions.



I have applied for a patent (patent pending) on this design also. That is why thissale states it is “NEW (other)”. I buy them new, and then alter them, test them, and ship.



There are about different 8 styles of batteries sold by Coleman with posts, and if you view all 12 pictures on thissale (upper left hand corner of this page), you will see the two main types. But there are 6 other variations also. One is all green, one is mostly black with red tabs on the side. Some have 2 metal contacts (terminals) on the post for the electrical connection, and some have 3. This charger will charge ALL of them.

Types / Models of batteries this charger will work with;

Coleman Batteries;

  • PMD8127, PMD8127BAT (12V)

  • PMD8128, PMD8128BAT (14.4V)

  • PMD8129, PMD8129BAT (18V)

  • PMD8130, PMD8130BAT (18V)

  • PMD8131, PMD8131BAT (PA1801 or BA1801) and PMD8131BA-PR (18V)

  • CMD8191, CMD8191BAT (18V)

  • Battery models #141 and #166 and #222 (18V)

  • Many Coleman batteries had NO model number on them anywhere.  They just had "18 Volt" on them.  Some were all green, some were green with black tabs, some were all black and some were black with red tabs on the side

This charger will also charge any Ni-Cd (Nickel Cadmium) 9.6 volt, 10.8 volt, 12 volt, 13.2 volt, 14.4 volt, 15.6 volt, 16.8 volt and 18 volt batteries from other manufacturers as well, as long as they have the FULL OVAL post (as opposed to the half-oval post), as long as the positive (+) metal contact on the battery post makes contact with the positive (+) metal contact inside the charger when the battery is put into the unplugged charger.


A detailed description of the batteries this charger will charger will have ALL of the below characteristics (all 18V Coleman batteries have all of them, as well as many other brands);

  • a rated voltage from 9.6 volts to 18 volts (9.6V, 10.8V, 12V, 13.2V, 14.4V, 15.6V, 16.8V or 18V)

  • the cells inside the battery use nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) technology. All Coleman batteries used this technology. (example; a 12V battery contains TEN Ni-Cd cells)

  • a post that has the shape of a full oval that protrudes from the base of the battery. All Coleman 18 volt batteries with a post have this shape.

  • alignment of the the small “+” (positive) and “-” (negative) stamped into the top of the post of the battery align the same way as shown in one of the 12 pictures on thissale. I have yet to find a battery that does not have the “+” marked or stamped on it somewhere. I think it is a law that they be marked. If the “+” and “-” are reversed on your battery, this charger will not work for you. All Coleman batteries have the orientation shown on the picture on thissale. You can easily check this with a voltmeter as well, if by chance it isn't marked.

If the (+) and (-) metal contacts are reversed from the picture, you will burn out this charger. I check all chargers before I ship them, so I know they are working before I ship.


If the “+” sign marked on the top of the charger DOES NOT align with the “-” metal contact on the battery post when inserted into the unplugged charger, DO NOT PLUG THE CHARGER INTO THE WALL OUTLET! It will burn it out!


I mount a small object on the top of this charger to prevent you from accidentally plugging your battery in backwards. You could remove this small object, but that is not recommended since SOMEDAY you could forget that it goes on “backwards” (180 degrees from the way it is made to plug into the charger). This will burn it out immediately. I will eventually make a modification to this charger so that batteries that are “oppositely orientated” will work with it.


Items that this charger is meant to work with or replace;

Coleman Chargers / Battery Bases (see section below for the AC adapters used with the slow chargers); 

  • 1-hour fast charger PMD8146 (PA1801) for three terminal batteries;

How this charger functions;


This is a SLOW charger... it will charge any Coleman 18 volt Ni-CD batteries in 3-4 hours. BUT YOU MUST THEN REMOVE THE BATTERY FROM THE CHARGER! If you don't, you will OVERCHARGE the battery, and that shorten the battery's life. The original Coleman slow charger was a 6-8 hour charger, so this one is TWICE as fast.


After making sure the “+” (positive) sign on top of the charger aligns with the metal contact on the battery marked with “+” (positive) sign, plug the charger into a working 120V AC wall outlet. Then insert the battery fully (firmly) into the oval opening in the charger. You should then see the green LED light come on near the pointed end of the charger. It will stay on as long as power is supplied to the charger and the battery is inserted into it. It will never blink. All the light means is that your battery is being charged, and that the charger is working.


If you want to avoid overcharging your battery, plug the charger into an hourly timer (like the ones used to turn lights on or off when you aren't home) and set it to stay on for 4 hours. Remember to remove the battery within the next 24 hours however, or it will charge it again for 4 hours, and that shortens the life of a battery that is already fully charged!


What do I do if the light does not come on?

The light on the charger will not come on in these situations;

  • if you have plugged the charger into a wall outlet that has NO power going to it (some outlets are controlled by a light switch somewhere in the room, some are controlled by a ground fault interrupter that may have been tripped, or some could be controlled by a circuit breaker or fuse that may have been tripped)

  • if you have not firmly pushed the post of the battery into the charging hole of the charger

  • if your battery has a broken solder joint between any of the cells inside. To check for that, do a resistance (ohm) test between the “+” and “-” terminals on the battery. If you get no resistance/ohm reading, then you have a broken solder joint inside the battery. You can take the battery to anyone with a multimeter, such as Radio Shack, and they will test it for free usually. If you get a resistance reading, then do a voltage test on the same terminals. If the reading is ZERO, or a very low reading, see the next bullet below

  • if your battery has MANY of it's cells inside shorted out (that is what happens to them as they get old or have been charged too many time). This charger is designed to shut itself off almost immediately when it senses that your battery is defective (if you look closely, you will see it light VERY briefly, and then go out... or it will just remain very dimly lit). If it did not shut itself off, then it would burn itself out. The old Coleman chargers did just that... they burned themselves out. That, incidentally, is why that company went bankrupt in 2007 (Team Products)... too many charger failures under warranty. It was cheaper for them to go bankrupt than to support all the charger failures with replacements. If you check the resistance of this type of battery, it will be either ZERO or a very low reading (less than 1000 ohms). A zero reading means that ALL the cells are shorted out. That happens when batteries are left on a slow charger for days/weeks/months at a time, or a battery that has been already charged 100's of times.

How do you get the maximum life out of a Ni-Cd battery?


I have detailed information about this on my website of ChargerPro. I would have put all that information on thissale, but it is already pretty long, and I don't want you to fall asleep reading mysale!


What if I have any questions?

See the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions, if you have any questions.

Weight;

This item weighs 1 pounds 1 ounce before it has been put into a box.

Shipping (Domestic and International);

I only NORMALLY ship to the 48 contiguous United States, but I do make exceptions.  If you live outside of those 48 United States (Hawaii, Alaska, Peurto Rico, a US Territory or use a military address) or live in another country, please email me for a shipping quote BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THEsaleIf you buy the item and THEN email me, I will not be able to offer you the best rates I have available.  To email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions

Standard shipping is either via USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail with tracking, USPS First Class Mail with tracking, or FedEx 2-3 day Air with tracking.  No matter which method you choose, you will receive a tracking number emailed to you from that carrier.   It is my choice which one I use. If you want a specific method that I use, then email me before you buy thesale, as it is difficult to change it once you have made the purchase.  To email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions.   If you want FedEx, be sure to give me a NON-PO BOX address, since FedEx does not deliver to PO BOXES!

Mysales are shipped almost every day of the week including Saturday, unless something unusual comes up.  If something does come up, orders will be shipped out the following business day. Never does it take more than one extra day for me to ship an item.  Overnight service is available also, for an additional fee (see the OVERNIGHT shipping section below for info on that).

Picking up an order at my business;   

There is a $3 fee to pick an item up at my location if you live near Milwaukee, WI.  And you will also pay WI State Tax of 5.6%.  This fee pays for my time to make arrangements with you. It would be best to email me if you want to pick an item up.  To email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions

Standard Overnight FedEx service is available for $1.99 more;

Just choose overnight shipping from the drop down box when you make your payment. Or you can choose just standard 2-3 day shipping instead if you don't want overnight service. Standard Overnight service is NOT available to all addresses in the United States. Very rural locations sometimes require PRIORITY Overnight service, which costs more than Standard Overnight service. If you want to find out if your address is available for Standard Overnight Service (95% of US addresses are), you can call FedEx toll-free at 800-238-5355 and they will tell you.

And just so there are no misunderstandings, allows its sellers 24 hours (1-business day) to “process” an order.  So for example, if you pay for an order at 1pm on Monday, I have till 1pm on Tuesday to ship the order overnight, meaning it would ship Tuesday night and you would get it on Wednesday.  Generally speaking, orders placed by 4PM (and sometimes a little later) Monday thru Friday ship SAME DAY.  But if something comes up, and I’m away from home, then it will ship the next day, and still be within’s seller’s guidelines for shipping an order.

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 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 yoursale payment (minus the original shipping fee, the return shipment delivery fee if any, the listing fee, the sellingsale 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 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, but you’ve been warned!

I ***WILL*** combine shipping!

If you would like more than one of an item on ansale, or win more than one of mysales, email me for the discount you would get.  To email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions.  Usually, the shipping fee is about $1.49 more per additional pound of weight, but not always.  Somesales 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.

International Shipping:

BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THE ITEM, email me for a shipping quote.  To email me, see the section below entitled “How to contact me with questions.  If you buy the item and THEN email me, I will not be able to offer you the best rates I have available.

How to contact me with questions;

Email me by clicking anywhere on the words "Ask a question", which are located very near the bottom of thissale page. 

Return Policy;

If you ordered the wrong item (this happens more often than you would imagine!);  

All items may be returned to me within 7 calendar days of receiving the item.  You will have to pay to ship it back to me.  A full refund (minus certain fees) will be given once the item is received back in the same working condition that it was sent to you in.   The fees not refunded are the shipping fee, the PayPal fee and a processing fee of $3 (to test the item and restock it).  You also will not receive the refund until you respond to the email that I will have them send to you.  It will  state that you are returning the item to me for a refund.  That will then allow me to get back the 15% in selling fees that I have paid to for selling the item to you.  

If I shipped the wrong item (very rare… see my feedback!);  you have your choice of the following –

If you are in a hurry to receive the right item, just order another one, and then you can ship me the incorrect item later.  When I receive it, you will get FULL CREDIT (no fees at all) for the initial order.  I will email you a prepaid shipping label for FedEx, so all you do is drop it off.  You pay no shipping fee to get it back to me.

If you aren’t in a hurry, or you don’t want to purchase a second one, then I have to require that you ship the wrong one to me first… THEN I will ship the correct one, once I get it and test it to be sure it is indeed the same one I sent you and is in working order.  I will email you a prepaid shipping label for FedEx, so all you do is drop it off.  You pay no shipping fee to get it back to me.   I have to do it this way, as otherwise I have found that the buyer just seems to “mysteriously” forget to ship back the incorrect part!

If an item arrives damaged or not working (even more rare, since I test all items before they ship);  See the WARRANTY section below. 

Warranty;

This new item is sold as-is.  No warranty implied whatsoever.  The reason is because many of the items I sell are electrical in nature, and lightning could strike your house (or the item).  I can’t expect to be held responsible for situations like that!  My 14,000 feedback record should show you that I do NOT sell junk.  I test all items thoroughly.  With my 98.5%+ feedback rating, you should be able to tell that I do not sell defective items.  It never pays to sell someone a defective item… it is more of a hassle than anything, so that is why I test EVERYTHING.  You may have heard the expression, “you spend 95% of your time on the 5% of your sales that have problems”.  I have found that to be VERY true and don't like wasting my time!

Payment Policy;

YOU NO LONGER NEED TO OPEN OR HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT (this is new as of 11/09).   Just go to PayPal.com and you will see the options you have to choose from.  But opening a PayPal account is NOT required any longer!!!!!!

I accept PayPal, Paymate, ProPay and Moneybrokers USA.  But you can also easily pay via your checking account, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.    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 a question" located in the upper right-hand corner of thissale page if you want to make other arrangements.  Please pay within 4 days.

Feedback Policy;

I will ONLY leave feedback after feedback has been left for me.  Too often sellers get threatened with negative feedback after they have left positive feedback in advance. Sorry about that, but it is what feedback has been left for them!

WARNING ONE! Be kind to your Ni-Cd batteries, and they will last a very long time!!!!!!!!

Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. This mean you NEVER leave your battery pack charging on a 3-hour charger for more than 4 hours (4 hours is needed to charge a battery fully if it has not been charged in a while)! Those 3-hour chargers constantly charge at .4 amps (400ma), even when fully charged. If you charger a battery for more than 4 hours, all that does is heat up the cells. And remember, heat is NOT a friend of the NiCd 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 4 hours. You will get much longer life out of the battery pack that way.

WARNING TWO! Beware

Often, these sellers have bought batteries that have been on someone’s shelf unsold for many months or years. A NiCd 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!

The price may look good, but wait until the battery pack needs replacing (prematurely, as often they are made with inferior NiCd 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!

I have had numerous buyers tell me horror stories ofsales that purchased for information on how to fix their defective battery packs. 1) You can replace NiCd cells that are bad, BUT YOU CAN’T SOLDER THEM! Heat is NOT a friend to a NiCd 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 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 a few hours or days in most cases. If that really worked, don't you think I would also sell a version of it? I don't like to disappoint people, so I won't sell it.
