    One charge and then nothing.  Charger light won't even illuminate when battery is placed in the cradle.

Don't throw away any NiCd power tool battery, Firestorm or Versapakbattery that does not hold a charge or does not give you the power youneed, you can get new life from your battery or device that containsNiCd batteries. icad batteries often die in such a way that they won't take a chargeand have zero voltage. This usually means they are shorted out bycrystal dendrite growth. You Can fix these shorted crystal dendrites by"Revitalization through Vaporization of Dendrites (RVD) Process".

New bright 19.2v nicd battery problem

I have purchased 2 remote controlled toy cars from Costco over the years. These New Bright batteris and charges last only a few charges, and then they go bad. I am disappointed. I will go to Walmart and buy a new battery and see if it works better, if not, i will return to Walmart.
