Hi all, I hope we are all busy & enjoying the hot weather. Unfortunately it seems to be too hot for my AP300's. They are refusing to charge atm, i guess due to over heating. I have 3 batteries & now two are completely dead, leaving just one to trim some hedges today. I use a Stihl RMA448 along side my Weibang, but as it eats the battery juice I have had to switch back to the Weibang & limit my use of the Stihl kit.
Has anybody else had issues with their kit the last couple of days? I even resorted to chilling the batteries in the fridge for a couple of hours but with no luck. Maybe the charger is the thing that doesn't like the heat, as soon as I switch it on the light goes red, then green before starting to charge. All for about 10 seconds & cuts off.
It's a real pain in the A if you can't use the kit because the temps too high. I don't normally work once it gets to 30c due to heat stroke a few years ago, but I've just had a week off & need to catchup. Maybe it's Stihl's way of stopping me working at high temps!!!
Stay safe & cool all.
