NICAD & NIMH Power Tool Battery Repair Service

Cordless Power Tool Battery Repair and Reconditioning

One of the tests

When a battery pack is received it will be Voltage tested and if suitable is put on charge until full.

It is then discharged under controlled load conditions and the results logged.

After repair/reconditioning it will be load tested again, then re-charged and left for 24 hrs to see if it retains the charge, before return to customer. 

The results kept on file.

 Note: NICAD batteries only.

Although the battery capacity maybe restored, the ability to hold a charge for long maybe less; especially if they are old or in some cases when dead cells are revived.
