    ozzy, someone posted a u-tube site that showed how to recharge those with jumper cables. Maybe one of our computer geniuses could find that link for you.

    Yeah I seen those videos mrs dee. These batteries probably good, but it was a cheap chinese knock off tool. The charger was dead, so I scrapped the set for the motors. ANd broke the batteries apart for the nickel batteries. Now need to know if they can be sold or what.
