Ryobi 9.6V cordless drill HP 496

I've lost my manual and don't know how long to charge (and recharge) my new battery. Also I'd like to run the drill with a power cord, if that can be done; what size (amps) converter would I need, and how would I wire it?

They don't make an actual converter for that use...and the expense and complications of building one would be avoided by just buying a basic corded drill for about $30.

Doesn't the charger have an LED that changes color when charged? If not I would probably go about 6 hrs for a full recharge.

The manual says the battery charge time is 3-6 hours. You can get the owners manual here.
