This product is as close as it gets to being a complete waste of money. I know you're on a tight budget (you're buying B&D tools), and I know many tool reviewers advise you to buy products that cost way more than you want to pay.

But I'll give you two good reasons not to buy this product. First, this is the same charger B&D ships with their tools. Unless you bought a used tool, which didn't come with a charger, you already own it. Why would you buy a product that you know, from firsthand experience, will fail?

Here's a better reason not to buy this item: If your charger quit, you probably broke it. You can break this item just by trying to use it. Read the "IMPORTANT NOTICE" in the manufacturer's product description: B&D says that plugging a "bad battery" into the charger will short the wiring out and void your warranty. They warn you to test your battery before trying to use this item to recharge it.

How are you supposed to know that your battery has gone bad? Mine was sitting in the case with my drill for a few months. I plugged it in, thinking I'd just forgotten to charge it after my last project, and the charger stopped working. I also fried a replacement model that I bought at a local store.

So no matter how tight your budget it, this is no bargain. If you don't buy a battery tester and use it before every recharge, the odds are that you'll eventually fry your charger.

Black and Decker makes a much better charger-- the Black and Decker PS1MVC 8.4-Volt to 14.4-Volt 1 Hour Pod Style Battery Charger. This model won't die if you plug in a bad battery-- it'll flash a warning light.

This thing will over-charge your battery and ruin it if you leave it charging more than a day. Spend a few $$$ more and get the smart charger (the orange one) it will not keep charging when the battery is full. Also the power on the unit will fry-out if left plugged in.

Vendor should have informed customer @ the time of order to get battery checked, saying that "if your battery is bad the charger will brake down and then it will not be warranted"

Instead I was not told at the time of ordering charger, (because they want to make a sell immorally) I found out about the condition in terms of printed note when I received the charger. Even if I decide to send it back I have to pay $6 to $7 shipping for claiming my money back.

I think this is not moral. They should inform the customer upfront when he/she is ordering the charger.

Do yourself a favour and buy the DeWalt DC9310 Heavy-Duty 7.2 Volt - 18 Volt 1 Hour Charger instead. It charges both the Black & Decker PS140 (14.4V) and PS130 (12V) Firestorm batteries.

I've wasted money on 3 of these Black & Decker chargers and that doesn't include a free replacement on the charger that came with the set and stopped working on the second day. I thought I was doing something wrong all of this time - leaving the batteries charging too long and cooking the charger - until I read the reviews here. Seems like everyone has the same problem. Black & Decker should be ashamed of themselves and I will never buy one of their tools again - Rigid, Ryobi or DeWalt for me in future.

My 14.4V Firestorm set has been sitting in the basement collecting dust until my wife said she was going to throw them out and I thought I'd have one last go at salvaging it (as it cost about $200 when new). As I couldn't find the charger or batteries in the stores, I started looking on line and found that Black & Decker doesn't even support these models anymore (thanks for nothing, B&D !!) With the help of other reviews on Amazon, I eventually found (and bought) the DeWalt DC9310 charger and it's the best $30 I've spend in ages. Not only does it fit and fully charge the 14.4V Firestorm batteries, it fits and charges the 12V Firestorms as well.

Thank you, DeWalt. Thank you, Amazon reviewers. And stuff you, Black & Decker.

Two of these were included with the selection of "Firestorm" tools I originally bought several years ago, plus one "smart" charger. I used the "smart" charger almost exclusively, but on heavy tool use days would also use one or both of these. One of the PS180s simply quit after not quite a year, and I didn't much care. The other lasted somewhat longer, but when it failed it actually melted part of itself. I don't think there was even a battery in it when that happened, though it could be that I just didn't notice the problem until the next time I tried to use it. I'm not entirely sure what happened or when, but when I opened it up, the charging circuitry was toast. The near-fire originated with a component on the circuit board. A very crudely designed and assembled board too, in my opinion.

My advice is - if you already have one of these, at least don't leave it plugged in when not in use, and don't place it on or near anything flammable. If you have more than one, then you probably have enough need to get something better and ditch them all.

BUYING one is just plain STUPID, when a few bucks more will get you a PS1MVC

Nearly living up to the "Firestorm" name is not what I would call a "feature"
