    Re: Black & Decker Owner Check-In --- Read This First!

    Hello, I am new to this forum. I have a B&D CM1836, and I need to change the battery. But the closest service center is 150 miles away! Can anyone tell me if I can change the battery myself? I am ready to take the cover off and see what's inside ... but if you have done this before, please let me know if you have any helpful hints.

    If you're new to the forum, please reply to this thread and introduce yourself and your mower (that is, if your mower has a name ). Maybe attach a photo or two of your mower and show off your pride and joy.

    Also, if you haven't done so already you can upload a user avatar (picture under your user name). You can do so by clicking on settings and "edit avatar" or just click here.

    Please be helpful and friendly to all other Black & Decker owners (how could you not, right?) and if you like this forum, tell your friends about it.

    We want to make this the best resource for Black & Decker mower owners, and to do that we need your help! Questions? Experiences? Stories? Data? Photos? Articles? Links? Cool Black & Decker stuff? Post it here!

    Last but not least, please let me know if you have any suggestions for the site. We'd love to hear them.
    I bought my CMM 1200 some years ago, it has been doing fine till now. When my battery seemed weak, I found it was the fault of the early model charger. Having replaced it, the battery life was much improved until the mower developed a short and melted it's plastic key. Can't imagine going back to a gas powered mower. YuriS3

    Hello, all.

    I just picked up my first CMM1200 at a yard sale...without a charger. After turning the internet upside-down looking for the "right" charger to buy, I've decided to try a generic trickle charger/maintainer and optionally add some battery health instrumentation (volt/ammeter) to the mower itself. I'm sure I am not the first person to try this, so I would appreciate any advice!

    A trickle charger might be troublesome as I think that the only way to connect it to the battery would be by taking off the top of the lawnmower which is easy, but a bit of a pain.

    Adding a voltmeter and ammeter can be done and if you go to thread that describes how I built and added a lithium battery to the CMM1200, I think there are pictures of voltmeter and ammeter. I have seen other cmm1200 with voltmeters and ammeters. They are handy to help prevent over discharge and abuse of your battery.

    If you haven’t already bought a trickle charger, I might still have a charger for my CMM1200. It’s yours if you pay shipping, or you live close and shipping’s not much. Let me know if you want me to go and have a look to see if I still have it.
