Question about Batteries.com 8148 Nickel Cadmium 2-Way Radio Battery
I have an 18 volt Craftsman Nickel Cadium battery that will not take a charge. The charger has 3 lights. I heard they can be repaired. How?
Try Re-Conditioning the battery first. Full procedure at: ysuusy.com/easybatteryfix.html
"Cordless Power Tool Batteries and other batteries that contain Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) Cells can be Re-Conditioned to perform as well as new or even better than new. Proper maintenance after the procedure will insure years of usable life.
The First and most common procedure for Re-Conditioning a NiCd cell is by using a Technique called "VOLTAGE SURGING". Over time the crystals within a NiCd cell begin to combine and get larger. This causes them to loose capacitance and also break through the inner seals of the cell.
Surging the NiCd cell using a higher voltage causes the crystals within the NiCd cell to shatter and become smaller. These smaller crystals have a greater surface area and therefore contain a greater capacitance for energy. "

There are several companies who repair or can replace the NiCD batteries used on tools. Try googling the name of the product etc. (ie. "craftsman drill battery replacement")

My 4 year old Daughter left my craftsman light 19.2 on all night. When i went to charge it, the charger said the battery was defective.
I didn't want to believe it so I tried a trick. After applying the trick, I tried to charge the battery and this time the charging light came on.
Hurray the trick worked. This trick should work for any battery. Please visit my web page to see the trick... my TIP is free but I like to track the page counts to see if people have this same problem I do.
So before you open up your battery and replace the cells try my TIP first.
