I have a bosch strimmer with nicad battery, bought last year.

This answer was rated:

I have a bosch strimmer with nicad battery, bought last year. I soon had problem with battery failing to charge properly. Charger's flashing light stopped flashing after brief time but battery not charged. Bosch examined equipment and returned it saying they had charged my battery satisfactorily and this appeared to be the case. Now I'm back to square one with it.

What can Bosch do with my battery that I can't?

Hi good afternoon,
may I have the model #?
Bosch would replace the battery but first we need to determine if its the charger or the battery for sure;-)
Thank you

Bosch strimmer ART26 Accutrim

Is that the number you require? Other numbers given on label.

Thanks Colin, yes thats the one.
With that unit, the batteries have been not so good in the past. But Bosch has fixed the issue, they aren't warrantying that will send you a replacement for a fee, but they will likely give you a discount due to this issue;-). Its not a charger issue but is a bad battery.
If you need a source for them please let me know, I will locate that for you as well.
I will stick with you until you have resolve for this but since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)
You will then be able to contact me at anytime at no additional cost until we have this fixed for you.

Thank you Colin and have a great weekend!
