Chancer Posted November 25, 2013 Share Posted November 25, 2013 Alan Zoff.How did your recelled batteries hold up in use? The ones I did for others years ago were OK I think but I never got any long term feedback.I have just bitten the bullet and bought 78 cells to refurbish the 6 batteries for my 3 drills, it was that or another new Makita, it was very tempting as B&Q have 18 volt ones with two li-ion batteries for £99 less the OAP discount on thursday.But I just could not in all conscience keep replacing perfectly servicable tools, I have 3 good professional battery drills with batteries that are foutu, the Makita ones have now joined the others.Does this ring a bell with anyone? You have to keep one battery on constant charge to be able to use the tool when you need to, you put the other one on charge while you work with charged one in the tool which always dies before the second one is fully charged, then starts the dance of swapping partially charged ones between the charger and tool, the first lunch break gets you the first fully charged battery, the next morning you have another one, and so it goes on.Hopefully my marathon recelling job will liberate me from this servitude.
