I have a weedeater string trimer. The lithium ion battery charger quit working. I diagnosed it and found the part that plugs into the wall is not putting out any voltage. There has to be a transformer and bridge rectifier in it. a wire goes to the battery charger stand. It has a small computer inside of it to control the charge rate and lights etc. I am not able to find a new charger at a decent price.
I went to Lowes and bought a new Craftsman weed eater for $99. It comes with the charger and lithium ion battery. I inquired about a spare battery. They have them for $90. (sticker shock) For $9 more I can get a spare weedwacker, battery and charger.
Weird, weird, weird.
