I’ll teach you how to charge a Hyper Tough drill easily and effectively in this article.
Being a handyman, one of my favorite drills is the Hyper Tough drill. This is an amazing inexpensive drill. Knowing how to charge the drill is key to properly maintaining the drill and improving performance.
In general, the process of charging the hyper tough drill is to:
- Eject the battery by pressing the button below the grip
- Plug in the charger
- Switch on the power
- Wait for 3 to 4 hours
I will cover more details below.
1. Battery Type
Hyper Tough drills use Hyper Tough 20-volts MAX, 2.0 amps, and Lithium-ion batteries.
Once fully charged, lithium-ion batteries can last for a considerable time depending on whether or not they are in use.
2. Type of Charger
To charge Hyper Tough drill batteries, use the supplied charger kit. If you don’t have the supplied charger kit, get yourself a 20V Lithium-ion Hyper Tough drill charger from Amazon or a local electronics ware — for lithium-based batteries.
3. Battery Life
The 20V lithium battery lasts for three years (min), approximately 1000 charging cycles. Such batteries naturally have a 3-year warranty. (1)
4. Charging Time
The charging time for 20V Lithium batteries for Hyper Tough Drills is between 3 and 4 hours, depending on the battery level.
How Do You Charge a Hyper Tough Drill
Follow the steps below to charge your Hyper Tough Drill:
Step 1. Press the button below the grip section to eject the battery.

The charging time for a Hyper Tough drill is between three and four hours.
I recommend charging the battery overnight so that the battery can fully charge, especially if the drill is new.
