I wanted to share with the LJ crew a neat little outfit I came accross a couple of years back that re-habs cordless tool battery packs.
You send them your battery pack, and they swap out the cells, spot welding the connections just like the OEM does. They can even replace the smart chips that feed the charger temperature info. etc…
I used them to replace the battery packs on my favorite Porter Cable 12 volt drill/driver and they were as good as new when I got them back. Two years later and they’re still going strong.
The service isn’t exaclty cheap, but it is significantly less than purchasing new battrery packs… which may have been on a warehouse shelf for years!
Here’s their link
