A couple of years ago I bought one for my wife. I inherited after she
lost interest in the hobby it was for. Now it is dead. Opened it up
and it had two non-standard lithium cells hardwired in. I took it to
the battery place and he declined, saying he was trained in replacing
lithium batteries but the company would not let him do it because of
insurance issues. Sounded like I had brought in an IED.
Dremel would not give a price for replacing the batteries. I would
have to ship it along with the charger to them insured, then wait for
the dreaded phone call telling me where to leave the money in small,
My other options were to trash it, call the bomb squad or bury it
beside the road at night. Trashed it.
