You can recharge the battery at any time. I usuly use mine then when done using it I put it back on the charger so I know it will be charged the next time I need it.

Sorry, but I haven't solved any problem. I'm still waiting on the experts to solve my problem from June 16 on my trimmer not operating even with new fully charged battery. As for your replacement, I would suggest retail stores that sell trimmers, such as Home Depot, Lowes, Ace hardware stores or maybe B&D website.

You didn't say how old your trimmer is, but it sounds like it may just need a new battery. Just like a car battery, they will only recharge for so long and then die and need to be replaced.

The service centers have stated in unison that it is no longer "cost effective " for them to repair these. They claim they are a "disposable" item and should be replaced once worn out. This may surprise you, but I suggest that you remove (if you have to drill it out then fine) the blade and attempt to sharpen it some. Or leave it off and replace it with a large cutting razor type blade used for shears etc. They do make sharp blades large enough to do the job. You just have to find them.

My battery won't rechage after one year what's the problem?

What you are realy supposed to do after you use the trimmer is run the battery out until it doesnt have enough juice to run any more. It is boring but your battery life will last much longer.
