I have a DW 12v drill. I bought it at HD on a summer "special" and it
was $99 comes with the drill, two battery packs and a 1 hour charger.
Now two years later the batteries are about to die. One will work for
may be 15 minutes after fully charged the other would not even charge
just blinks real fast.
I have looked into getting these rebuilt. Looking at the prices the
average price to get one rebuilt is about $45-50. Getting two rebuilt
will be $100 plus shipping in some cases, which is about the price of
a brand new drill set that I may be able to get from $99 to $139...
So question is whether it's better to rebuild them or just get new
Then I ran into one article that briefly talked about 12V Dewalt
batteries and B&D batteries are interchangeable. Not the same, but
interchangeable? and the B&D ones are much cheaper?
Is this true? and if so, can you charge the B&D batteries with a
Dewalt 1 hour charger?
Anyone know for sure?
