Drill Battery Pack Rebuild

Hooray for cheap NiCd batteries from China. I just rebuilt a dead battery pack for my cordless drill an awful lot cheaper than buying a replacement one.

And to help it last longer, I also bought a smart charger. The original charger was really dumb and would overcharge the battery every time – which is why it blew up in the first place. The cells and the charger together still cost less than a replacement battery!
