i see alot of people upset or having problems with there cordless powertool batteries, can blame some of them for being up set since some of the batteries cost as much as the tool. Now i wouldnt do this since im a big scaredy cat, but not everyone has money to spend on replacement batteries, and theres nothing worse then having expensive power tools laying around with no way to power them. NOW THIS IS FOR NON LITH batteries only. you can find online how to fix most of them at home, 80 percent of the fix is sodering back the connection that came loose between each cell. But i would suggest from now on buying kits so the battery is included in the warranty or check ebay or amazon for used ones, they are usualy a third of the price of a new one, but beware, make sure if you use ebay that u check the full description, had a freind buy two batteries for 8 bucks apeice, and come to find out if he had checked all the details it would have told him AS IS/NON-WORKING/FOR PARTS ONLY LOL. What i do sometimes is go to a pawn shop. everyone sees a tool they want but really dont want to spend the money to buy something they will rarely use. For example, i wanted a ridgid cordless circular saw but couldnt realy see spending the money for something ill use very little, so a day came about that my 18v battery quit on me so i when to the pawnshop, and there attached to a ridgid circular saw was my 18v battery, so i got my battery and saw for less then what it would have cost me for just a brand new battery its self.
