Battery charger compatible with Black & Decker PS120 9.6 V battery?

A friend gave me her extra Black and Decker drill because she was tired of dealing with the charger issues. I looked up the B&D charger in question (Black and Decker #418352-00 PS150 Charger - input / 120 Volts AC, 60Hz, 9W, output (NOM 10, 15V) 10.15 Volts DC, 210mA (NOM 11, 6V) 11.6 Volts DC, 165mA for PS120 9.6 Volt Battery Pack - Amazon.com) and it has really awful reviews. Is there another charger I can use out there for a 9.6V cordless drill battery that's NOT from Black & Decker? This is for a Black and Decker cordless drill that's probably nearing it's 5th birthday. Thanks everyone!

Unless you already have a new battery, it's probably not worth buying a 9.6V charger. At 5 years, the original battery will be way past its prime so for the cost of a charger and a new battery, you may as well buy a new drill with higher voltage. The new drill will come with battery and charger in most cases.

All 9.6 volt chargers put out the same amount, the problem is the battery configurations are different between the brands which usually makes it where a different brand battery won't fit Yrs ago I had a cheap oriental 9.6 volt drill but the battery would plug into a Makita charger .... but the makita batteries wouldn't lock into the drill - only the plug part was the same.

While there might be another charger that will work, I agree with toolmon that you'd be better off with a newer drill. I was shocked at how much difference there was when I upgraded to a 19.2 volt.
