Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gpthom Charger :( Tool :)
I have used this tool twice - it is awesome. Then the charger quit. It appears there is a problem with the Battery fit into the charger (loose). Once inserted a little off it bends the contacts on the battery and charger rendering them useless. Has this been resolved?

The charging base (#856-02) to my Dremel 8000 rotary tool has suddenly stopped working. I've also recently replaced the rechargeable battery after the first one failed following perhaps a couple of dozen charges.

The tool is one of my favorite. Also have one with the cord that I like also, but the cordless is just awesome. Charger has quit working now. Seems to be a common problem.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andysol Charger failed
Thought it was just me. Charger failed. Rarely used the lithium 800 dremel- it charged it maybe 10 times. Then- I believe- a pin broke. Not misused or mistreated in anyway
Love the dremel. Love the attachments. Love the battery. Hate the charger.
Dremel is a phenomenal company and I trust they'll make it right. I'll update my review if they do.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AnnB So what's with the charger?
I've been using Dremel tools since the 80's. I never had an issue with the corded tools other than that cordless would, of course, be so much easier to use. I was surprised when the charger just stopped working. I couldn't find the correct model (856-02) available anywhere but directly from Dremel and then I see that many others are having the same problem.
Has anyone purchased a replacement charger and did it break down within a few years as well?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wiley Love the tool. Hate the charger, poor quality.
Had the tool for about a year with light use. Generally use it for polishing and trimming my dogs nails. All of a sudden the charger isn't providing a charge any more. Shame too. The charger looks new and I haven't even been thorugh all the accessories that came in the kit.

The unit itself works well, however after a few full charges the charger stopped working. Not worth buying!

GREAT TOOL...BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE CHARGER HAS QUIT WORKING. THIS APPEARS TO BE A COMMON NEGATIVE TREND AMONG MANY UNHAPPY BUYERS. FOR A BIG NAME LIKE DREMEL...ONE WOULD EXPECT A MORE DURABLE PRODUCT.
