8V battery NOT fully charged....

I have a Homelite cordless trimmer running with 8-volt battery.

When I put the battery on the charger, there is green light and yellow light on which is not good. As a result, the battery is not charged fully even I put on 24 hours. The charged battery is very weak and I can not use the trimmer.

Is there any easy way to fix this charging problem?
If not, how do I know weather battery problem or charger problem?

How old is the battery? Rechargeables have a limited lifespan; they eventually will refuse to take/hold a full charge.

Just wait until you start replacing Ridgid 18 volt or Dewalt 18 volt. You will be in for a shock, no pun intended.

I think it's been a while since anyone has made a cordless electric line trimmer so I'd bet your battery has just died of old age.
