I just purchased an 8200; my first cordless Dremel after over 25 years of owning corded Dremels.



I've used the 8200 for small tasks lasting no more than 45 seconds of operation at a time, cutting small screws, trimming aluminum parts and shaping some plastic parts. This was done using the cut off wheel and sanding drum.



All was well initially. Eventually though, the 8200 would not turn back on. Slide the On/Off switch forward and nothing. This was after it sat off for over 15 minutes from its previous use. Taking the battery in and out got it working again.



Upon getting it to work again, I saw that the battery level indicator lights would fluctuate between 1 and 2 lights. I thought maybe it just needed a charge.



After an hour plus on the charger, I inserted the battery back into the 8200. It turned on properly and displayed 3 lights for the battery level. I proceeded to use it for more of the above mentioned short tasks. Within a few minutes of use, I experienced the same problem (wouldn't turn back on until I removed and reinstalled the battery).



Is this a known problem? Defective?



Thanks - Jim

I think there is a problem with the manufacturing of this tool, the battery is not powerful enough to power this tool.

Jim, I am no expert on Dremel cordless tools..but here is some advice that I ran across concerning other cordless tools that people

passed along with similar concerns on their cordless tools.



It seems that all cordless tools need to have the battery initially,

fully charged for the very first usage of the tool. After a few times of

charging and discharging the tool battery (normal usage) the tool battery starts to build a memory charge within the battery and will

only allow a certain amount of charge to be applied to the battery pack. To make the battery accept a full charge the tool needs to be run completely all the way down till it stops and won't re-start.

Take the battery and fully charge it according to factory instructions,

and it should hold this charge longer and give better overall performance. Hope this helps........eezlock

Hi this is Beth from Dremel Customer Service.  In regards to your 8200 model, when you first purchase this tool.. it has a "partial charge", so we do suggest you run it out and then recharge it.  (It's a 3 hr. recharge).  If you refer to your Operating/Safety Instruction Manual, on page 13 it talks about the "stall protection" and the fuel gauge on your tool/battery.  It addresses the 1-2-3 lights along with "flashing" lights and "side to side" lights.  This is all very important information to read and understand.  One thing for sure to understand is that when the battery is almost empty the last light will start to flash, but after that ... when the battery is dead, the tool will just automatically turn off.  It's a sudden stop... not gradual.  At this time then, you'll just need to simply recharge your tool.  If you are having trouble with your tool after reading through the directions on page 13, then I would suggest you contact our Dremel Customer Service Department.  They will be able to instruct you as to what steps to take for servicing your tool.  We can be reached at 1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday, 7:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST.  Thanks and have a great day!

-Dremel Customer Service Team

Back when I bought mine, it was a matter of the speeds. The cordless had set speeds and the corded was infinitely variable. So I went with the corded.

The main difference to choose from cordless and corded is of the speed with cords you wou8ld get variably good and with cordless you would receive good speed but you have to be in range for that.
