Good way to save money on cordless tools.
February 25, 2015
About a year ago I ordered batteries like these to fix a hand-vac that no longer would take a charge. They worked great and had a little more power than the originals did. I am very happy with the results. Also, Battery Junction had some of the best prices on line and shipped the product quickly. Very happy with the service.
Pros:If you know your way around a soldering iron, this option is much cheaper then buying replacement battery packs.
Cons:If you DON'T know what you are doing, these or any other rechargeable battery can cause serious injury and/or a fire.
IMPORTANT: make sure to tape up the ends of the old batteries so that they don't short out when you put them together. Some electronic retailers will take old batteries for recycling; a much better way than the landfill!
