Batteries & Chargers FAQS

Can I leave my battery in the charger after charging it?

Though you certainly can, we advise customers to remove the battery from the charger after it has been fully charged and to also unplug the charger from the outlet. The battery chargers do have auto cut offs to prevent it from overcharging but it's still best to follow good electrical safety practices. Doing so will also help prevent false defects readings and will allow the charger to reset itself each time it’s used to charge a battery.


Why do batteries cost so much more than the tool?

Batteries are the most important components for battery-operated units and happen to be the costliest items to manufacture and ship in any kit. We price our batteries with the cost of material, manufacturing, and current market pricing in mind. Full kits that include a tool, battery, and charger are priced affordably so that consumers can begin building a line of tools (24V, 40V, 60V, etc.) with battery compatibility and move forward purchasing tool-only units.


How do I store the battery? Can I leave the battery in the garage or shed?

We suggest storing the battery indoors and away from direct sunlight in a cool, dry area. Leave the charger unplugged and the battery disconnected from the charger unless it needs charging. It's best to store the battery with a full charge and to check on the charge every couple of months if it goes without use. If you notice the charge has dropped, we advise charging the battery back up to full before returning it to its safe storage place. Following these steps will ensure you get the most out of the battery life.


My battery is stuck in my tool. How do I get it out?

For 60V and 80V: To remove the battery, push and hold the battery release button. Then, pull the battery pack straight out. The battery pack fits snugly into the product to prevent accidental dislodging while in use—it sometimes may require a strong pull to remove. In some cases, the springs underneath have gotten locked down and you might need to press the top of the battery to re-engage them to help the battery pop up. Before use, make sure that the rails on the battery and product are free of debris that could cause the battery to get stuck.


My battery is stuck in my tool. How do I get it out?

For 24V and 40V: To remove the battery, press the latch button down on the battery pack and hold. Then, pull the battery pack out of the handle. The battery pack fits snugly into the product to prevent accidental dislodging while in use—it sometimes may require a strong pull to remove. Before use, make sure that the rails on the battery and product are free of debris that could cause the battery to get stuck.


How do I check the charge on my battery?

Press the battery capacity indicator (BCI) button located at the end of the battery. The lights will illuminate according to the battery capacity level. Please note that this switch requires a firm, direct push using the tip of your finger. If the button is not being fully engaged, the lights will not activate. The lights will only stay on for a few seconds and then will automatically turn off. Be advised, the lights might not power on is if the battery is completely depleted of power and needs to be charged.


Can I use any Greenworks battery in any Greenworks tool?

No, our batteries are only interchangeable with tools that belong to the same voltage platform (24V batteries only work with 24V tools, 40V batteries only work with 40V tools, etc.). The difference between batteries of the same voltage is the ampere-hour (Ah) rating. The higher the ampere-hour (Ah) rating on the battery, the more run time it has to offer.


Are there certain tools that can’t accept all same voltage batteries?

Yes, there are a few exceptions. Our 80V 20” snow thrower models 2600402 / 2605202 / 2601302 manufactured prior to September of 2017 can only use 2.0Ah or 2.5Ah battery models. Our 60V 8.0Ah battery model 2957102 cannot be used in the following tools: any 60V 12" Snow Shovel, any 60V 22" Snow Blower, any 60V Tiller/Cultivator, and any 60V Lawn Mower.


Do all batteries of the same voltage use the same charger?

Yes! Each product line has designated charger models that can charge all batteries in that voltage platform despite Ah rating.


The charger indicates that my battery is fully charged but I was just using it and it depleted. Why isn’t it charging?

Putting a battery that was just in use onto the charger often results in a false full charge signal. Remove the battery from the charger and allow it to rest in a room temperature area for about 10-15 minutes before charging.


My charger is flashing red when I engage my battery. What is happening?

When the battery is inserted into the charger and the status LED blinks red, remove the battery from the charger for one minute, then reinsert. If the status LED blinks green, then the battery is properly charging. If the status LED is still blinking red, remove the battery and unplug the charger for one minute. After one minute, plug in the charger and reinsert the battery. If the status LED blinks green, the battery is properly charging. If the status LED is still blinking red, then this likely indicates an issue with the battery or charger and should be taken care of either with our warranty team or by means of replacement.


My charger has a solid red light on it when I engage my battery. What is happening?

This typically indicates that the battery is at the wrong temperature to be charged. Allow the battery and charger to rest indoors at room temperature until they are no longer hot/cold then try charging again.


Are your chargers made for 220V or 120V?

Greenworks chargers sold in the USA and Canada are designed for use on 120V outlets only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replacement charger gets a Green light! I initially received a faulty rapid Charger with the purchase of a GLM801601 Mower Kit. After contacting Customer Service they agreed to replace it and quickly sent out a new one. The replacement charger works as it should and charges the included 2.0 ah batteries swiftly. The mower works great and the battery power supply last as advertised. It's Just too bad it wasn't good from the start. The battery and Charging system is the heart and soul of all the tools - so it has got to be right.

I have placed my battery into the charger and now have 3 green lights on my battery and 1 solid green light on the charger. The fan is still going. Will the fan automatically stop?

Asked by: Dbraun4
Wait, Greenworks Support please clarify. Someone else asked this same question and support said the fan stays on as long as the battery has not been removed from the charger to keep the battery cool. No your saying it does in fact turn off. Which is correct?
Answered by: Texas71
Date published: 2022-09-13

Double checking on this. Should my charger's fan turn off after the light goes solid green and all three LEDs show green on the battery? I just charged my battery for the first time, and the fan never shut off after 2 hours. When should it?

Asked by: MichaelE
So can Greenworks Support clarify a little further on this point. You've stated the fan stays on as long as there is a battery on the charger. So once the battery has all 3 green lights lit up, then the battery is completely full. Is this correct?

Do you make or have plans to make a DC charger? It's nice to take my tools to camp with me. But, when the batteries discharge I'm done. I have 4 batteries with no way to recharge without AC power.

Asked by: Vinny61
Hello Vinny61, At this time, we do not have plans for a direct current (DC) charger. We're sorry for any inconvenience.

Tried using 80V chainsaw after sitting for the winter. Battery dead. Put into charger, solid red light and no fan. Unplugged and did again, same thing. No lights on the battery itself. Item 1 1/2 years old and used only 4 times.

Asked by: Tkdart
HelloTkdart, We are sorry to hear about the experience you have encountered with this product. Here are a few troubleshooting suggestions to check out. 1) When the battery is inserted, the light should begin flashing green to indicate the battery is charging. If this light is not igniting or is flashing red, this may indicate an issue and we would be interested in hearing more about this. If the light simply goes solid red, try removing the battery and unplugging the charger for about 10 minutes and place them both indoors in a room temperature setting, as this might indicate the battery is at the incorrect temperature to be charged. 2) Ensure that the battery has been fully inserted into the charger. Sometimes this requires a firm push into place to make sure that it has been properly seated. 3) Try resetting the charger. To do this, simply unplug it for approximately 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try reinserting the battery. If the charger has been plugged in for extended periods of time, this can sometimes cause the charger to malfunction. Should you continue to experience a problem with the battery and charger, we urge you to contact our customer care using the customer contact page on our website or give us a call at 1-888-909-6757 (1-888-90WORKS), and we will be happy to assist with the warranty claims process. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and look forward to making it right!

I have a brand new 21" 80v mower. When I plug the battery in, it blinks green, fan on, but only for about 10 seconds. The the light blinks red. It shows one out of three lights on the battery. Could it be that the charger isn't recognizing the battery

Asked by: TVCIOFFI
Hello TVCIOFFI, Typically, a flashing red light indicates a battery issue. Please try resetting the charger by unplugging it for 1 minute and using a different outlet. For further assistance with this matter, please contact us at 1-888-909-6757 or send an email to info@greenworkstools.com.
