NICAD & NIMH Power Tool Battery Repair Service

Cordless Power Tool Battery Repair and Reconditioning

Rates & Services

 

Repair Service:- This is my primary service.

 

Average £25 per battery pack, depends on how many faulty Cells found. Total range from £15 for a simple repair, e.g. re-make burned out connection etc. - up to £35 for the largest packs with several faulty cells.

Often just one or two high impedance cells can destroy a battery packs power output & capacity. They can be replaced (with the same or higher capacity cells) and the battery power and capacity is restored. In most cases to nearly new condition. Most effective on NIMH and sometimes on NICAD battery packs that have failed prematurely. A good quality pack should give 10 years normal use and 5 years constant use - provided they are looked after correctly. See FAQ page.

Note: Repairs work best if the battery pack has recently failed. If it failed several months/years ago and been left in a discharged state, especially in an unheated outbuilding during the winter months, it's unlikely it will repair well and may require re-celling.

If practical I also offer a strip down and reconditioning service for NICAD & NIMH batteries for £15 per battery. This can restore battery power and capacity if the pack has not been used for long periods or requires reconditioning. Involves monitoring individual cells during deep charge/discharge cycles. See FAQ

Re-celling Service

Finally, if recondition/repair is not viable or a full refurbish is requested. I offer below prices for complete cell replacement. This will bring the battery back to "as new" condition, in some cases better if the capacity is higher than original.  They are all high quality power cells.

UPDATE: Due to so few returns I have decided to increase the guarantee period for all repair work from 3 to 12 months. Also if the battery pack fails and requires re-celling in this period, will do it at cost price.

Re-cell Service:- Examples

 

To replace all cells in a 12V battery pack with 2000 mAh NICAD -  £35.

 To replace all cells in a 12V battery pack with 3300 mAh NIMH -  £45.

To replace all cells in a 14.4V battery pack with 2000 mAh NICAD -  £38.

To replace all cells in a 14.4V battery pack with 3300 mAh NIMH - £50

To replace all cells in a 18V battery pack with 2000 mAh NICAD -  £43.

To replace all cells in a 18V battery pack with 3300 mAh  NIMH -  £60.

 To replace all cells in a 24V battery pack with 2000 mAh  NICAD -  £55.

To replace all cells in a 24V battery pack with 3300 mAh  NIMH -  £70.

To replace all cells in a 36V battery pack with 2000 mAh NICAD - £80.

To replace all cells in a 36V battery pack with 3300 mAh NIMH - £105.

Note: These prices are for one battery. If two or more are re-celled in the same order, prices are reduced, ie Hilti 36V re-celled with 2Ah NICAD's is £80 per battery. For two is £150.

Higher capacities are available on request but will be more expensive.

To find out how many cells are in your pack - divide the Voltage of the battery by 1.2V for each cell. Example 24V / 1.2 = 20 cells.

The prices quoted could be considerably less if re-fitted with reconditioned or used but good cells, if available.

UPDATE : Due to lack of returns for faulty cells, from now on - all re-cell work is guaranteed for 2 years.
