If you bought it from a local store take everything back so you can show them the problem, maybe there is a simple solution, maybe it is defective, either way you should walk out with a drill that works.

I noticed on one of my drills that when I insert the battery before plugging into the wall the battery won't charge.
I have to plug the charger into the wall before inserting the battery.

Whose drill does that? Seems odd.

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.

I understand. The charging system has to be up and running before you apply any kind of a load to it.
Just get use to the idea.

I have to be able to operate off the grid for as long as 8 hours at a time. My 1.2kW inverter will have a SHIRT-hemmorage if it wakes up to a motor load. Killed one already. I always, always start the inverter, then add the load. Not fun at 3AM but I can go back to bed in a wild winter storm and sleep well.

So. Plug in the charger, get it humming along. THEN add the load = the battery to be charged.

Plug it in as suggested, wait 30 seconds and try it, if it works you are away, if not wait a bit longer, if it still does't work talk to the dealer. So far you have had no definite instructions about the brand you have, just people trying to help you to the best of their knowledge.

When the indicator lights(?) come on in the charger, you should be able to add the battery.

My inverter beeps a sound. Then the display shows the available supply voltage (13.7VDC from the storage batteries). Now the inverter can supply 117VAC to motors and lights. After that, the inverter display shows how much output power I am using ( 450W as example).

Did you get a printed instruction sheet with your drill? That should tell you how to charge the battery for your drill. Maybe the store that sold you the drill will have an extra copy if you lost yours. Also DO NOT use an extension cord with the battery charger. Some chargers require a direct electric line for only the battery charger. Be safe.
